Well equipped pad in central athens, 10 mins walk from the main sites. Nice views and a park next door. Host was pleasant and professional. May be best to get a taxi from centre if you have a lot of luggage. Would definitely return.More

Thanks Fiachra. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at my apartment. I am not sure why your rating is not 5 out of five.... I would very much want to get your detailed feedback so that I can improve the quality of the services provided.
We stayed with our three children for three nights and loved both the apartment and location. The apartment was spacious, well fitted out and spotless. It is located in a lovely, quiet residential area and the balcony overlooks a park with lots of trees and with wide views across the hills. It was a quick taxi ride or metro to the centre of the city but we also enjoyed the local restaurants, bakeries etc. Marica and Ruth were very helpful in looking after us and arranging a taxi to the airport. Highly recommended.
We are very glad you appreciated the apt and its location while enjoying your stay. Come back anytime!
This is one of the best apartments we have stayed in! As soon as we stepped inside the cool and spacious interior and looked out over a green park to the incredible view of Mt Lycabettus, we felt the stress of travel melt away. The apartment has modern decor, comfy bed and furniture, a totally equipped kitchen and a washing machine. This is a great location in a quiet neighborhood, just 5 min walk to the supermarket, several cafes, and a bakery and gelato shop, with a forested park almost next door. It was an easy transfer by train from the airport and not too far to walk to/from the subway or the city centre. However, when you first arrive, I recomnend using a taxi to save the stress of finding your way, especially if it's hot or you have heavy bags. The yellow taxis are easy to flag down and it's just 3.5 Euro to anywhere within the city. Maria was an excellent host. She waited till we arrived and took the time to give us information on how to get around. There is no need to be anxious about traveling in Athens at present - we had no problems. People are friendly, it's cheap, easy to get around, and tourists are welcome.
I am very pleased you appreciated the apartment and enjoyed your stay in Athens. Your comments about the general situation in Athens and Greece are very useful because quite a few guests seem to be worried and there is no reason whatsoever to feel that way. Thanks and come back anytime!
We stayed here and used as a base to tour Athens. The apartment was immaculate, white sheets, soft white towels and a very well stocked kitchen. It's nice and secure so you can leave passports etc. it's a short walk from the metro and walking distance to the old Olympic stadium. A few tourist information leaflets would have been useful especially a bus timetable but we managed to navigate our way around. Some really nice restaurants nearby. We had to pay an additional €25 euros for an early morning arrival (4.30) which I thought was a bit unreasonable but we couldn't fault the apartment.
I am glad you appreciated the apartment and enjoyed your stay. For potential guests' information I would like to point out that flat renting is quite different from staying in hotels in the sense that there is no 24hs reception. When guests check in at night or very early in the morning it means that the person who comes to meet them upon check in has to work extra hours and also needs to use two taxis. This is why we charge a late night fee for which in any case we inform our guests as soon as they let us know that they will check in at night.
This was the perfect apartment for us - a surprisingly private and cozy feeling place in the middle of the city. We loved sitting out on the balcony, and would look forward to getting back to it at the end of long days exploring. Comfortable bed, full kitchen, neighborhood close to the train and within walking distance to museums and everything we needed.
I am really happy you appreciated the apartment and had a great stay. Come back any time!
Although the directions were imprecise (and the Greek alphabet is challenging), I was warmly welcomed by the apartment owner. This clean, bright modern apartment is simply and comfortably furnished, with an excellent balcony view of Athens' most prominent peak.
Thank you Michael. The directions I gave you seem to have worked perfectly with all other guests. I am impressed you found them unclear. Anyway, I will be happy to host you again.
