This was a super apartment located in the centre of everything from shopping to archeology. Open the window and watch the working and relaxing world of Greek culture. The apartment was extremely well equipped and the contact and support provided was first class. No complaints here.
Gina is the ideal hostess with the perfect apartment for a stay in Athens! She was incredibly accommodating, kind, warm and responsive to our every need--both before and during our visit. Once in Athens, we had a quite wide range of needs--from watch repair, pharmacies, good department stores and wine shops. Gina's recommendations all hit the mark!
Gina's spacious and stylish apartment is located in the heart of Monastraki (walking distance from the Acropolis). Before our arrival, Gina had prepared a list of nearby restaurants, taverns, cafes, shopping areas, and supermarkets--all of which turned out to be fantastic recommendations and spots that we wouldn't have found on our own as tourists in a new city. These were far from tourist traps and her reliable tips made our visit all the more enjoyable.
The apartment's kitchen is fully equipped for any meals or drinks you'd like to enjoy or prepare while in the house. The bathroom was spacious and shower pressure was incredible--just what we needed after a hot day in the Greek sun!
The neighborhood itself is full of life--bustling with tourists and locals alike. While it can get a bit noisy in the summer nights, Gina's blackout shades and windows muted most of the noise. The apartment is conveniently located near many amazing restaurants, cafes, markets, and sites. If in Athens, we highly recommend staying with Gina!
The apt at Athens in monstiraki is exactly the right one if you want to be in the center of Athens. Everything was in walking distance- Acropolis, Roman agora, museums, bus stations, metro , food places, flea markets etc. The only downside is some noise at night and if not completely exhausted you might need ear plugs. Another great part of the apt is Alexia who runs the place with her Aunt. She was a godsend. She gave you all the help you need to transition into the Athenian life and how to get around and any information you want in Athens. So that made the stay even better. All in all a great place to stay if in Athens.
Great welcome, tour of the apartment, lots of information about where to shop and eat locally. Convenient for sights and central Athens. Lots of bars in the same street which can make it a little noisy on Friday and Saturday nights but minor drawback compared with overall very positive experience. If we came to Athens again, definitely would rent again.
