Have just stayed here as a family of four & did not want to leave!!! I messed up our dates & John, the host, really could not have been more gracious & helpful trying to accommodate us. We were sooo grateful! I don't know what more to say that other reviews have not covered. I will be recommending this place & any other of John's apartments to any friends & family looking to stay in Athens
This was an excellent place to stay for an active couple. Apartment is spacious and well equipped, with a supermarket very close by we were perfectly set for self catering. Walked to the Acropolis and everywhere else we wanted and great views from Filipappou Hill. Ioannis was very helpful on our arrival with a full briefing and also sorted our early transfer on departure. Highly recommended.
The owner is very nice and took care of everything for us. He was very flexible and helpful. The place was perfect, everything was new and clean. My wife, son and I enjoyed this place very much. I would definitely recommend and stay here again. Please keep up the good work, making sure to keep the place clean and new looking after every traveler. I appreciate this in a vacation rental. I wish all places i stayed was like this one.
First, this apartment really is pristine - immaculately looked after and equipped. In a "real", un-touristy neighbourhood a few minutes walk from the Acropolis, perfectly situated to get to all the places you might want to see, with a supermarket and local shops on the doorstep. John's welcome couldn't have been warmer, and his arrangements for cabs to and from the airport worked very efficiently.We would certainly return, and have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
The host Ioannis (John) was waiting for us on arrival and helped with the luggage and getting us settled in. Very well organised with maps and heaps of advice of how to make our stay more enjoyable.
The apartment is large, clean, newly refurbished and very comfortable and we stayed for almost 3 weeks in total over an 8 week period. The free wi-fi worked very well, with a modern kitchen, large lounge, big screen TV (basic cable) and a good bathroom.
Location is AWSOME with metro, bus and tram less than 2 minutes walk away so travelling to very part of Athens is very easy. The Acropolis, Plaka, Kolonaki, Syntagma Square and Ominia are also 10 - 20 minutes away on foot. We did loads of exploring and shopping and just walked home, stopping for a coffee on the way home.
All the conveniences are very close - the local shops include supermarket, butcher, hairdresser, bakery, restaurants (with free delivery), bank, post office etc so we had everything we needed within very easy reach.
Balancing everything out was the price (about the same as a 4-star hotel) and for our length of stay (12 days + 5 + 1 days) we didn't get any housekeeping (when we asked it was an additional 35 euros), resupply of consumables (only enough for a few days only eg; toilet paper).or discount on cost. For our last 1 night stay we were charged an extra 30 euro premium as it was one night only.
Great place to stay and will definitely use it again and but for the quibbles above would have been exceptional.
