“Perfect central location with an amazing hostess”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This apartment in Volta was more than I could have imagined. It was spacious and beautifully decorated with gave it the vibe it deserved. Located right in the heart of the Old Town, surrounded by what I could only feel was a Bohemian vibe. Musicians could be heard at all hours playing in their homes, with the cafes buzzing nearby, there was also a bookshop at the bottom of the stairs. The stray cats were your neighbours, wandering about the place minding their own business. It was a clean and lovely apartment with an upstairs bedroom with skylight that couldn't be more perfect. Air conditioned with your own balcony and a washing machine. Mali provided you with he bear essentials, was always ready to assist you and give you directions and suggestions to the local happenings. I come to Corfu often and I can't tell you how pleased I was to have stayed here. I recommended to all travellers with the time and enthusiasm to explore one of my most favourite places in the whole word.

Management Response

First of all I would like to thank Alison for her kind words, but I feel that I have to address a few points that she raised.
Regarding the kitchen appliances they are exactly the ones that are depicted in our advertisement in Trip advisor. I would like to stress that we never claimed that there was an oven, but referred only to the specific items that are actually available for the guests’ use. Regarding dish washing there is a traditional fountain very conveniently located in the courtyard, which could have been used for this purpose. As far as the storage space is concerned, there is a big cupboard, which she could have used for storing her clothes. Regarding the mattress, everyone would agree that it is a matter of personal taste how firm or soft a mattress should be. Regarding the mosquitos, it is an exaggeration the way Alison presented the situation. It was really a random event that was due to the very hot weather early in the summer and it lasted for at most one week.

Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed here last week with a friend and found the place delightful.Mali met us as arranged and took us to the apartment.Nothing was too much trouble and we instantly felt welcome.The apartment is small but beautifully presented and could not be more convenient for the old town.Would highly recommend for a short stay holiday.

“Volta”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We did not understand, when we booked this tiny but very nice studio, that it did not have a kitchen. The fridge, microwave and one bar hot plate do not, in our opinion, constitute a kitchen. While, like most people are likely to, we ate lunch and dinner out, we did want to have breakfast there (and the cafe immediately below the studio was certainly not open when we wanted breakfast), and a cup of tea. In my opinion having to do the washing up in the bathroom is unacceptable. So that you know what we mean I am posting a picture of the “kitchen”. Equally, it would be better if there were mattress and pillow protectors.

Other than these observations, we would agree with everything other postees have said: it is a lovely tiny apartment in the gorgeous heart of Old Corfu Town - an amazing place - and Amalia has made every effort to make it very comfortable, immaculate and attractive for visitors. I also agree with an earlier postee that it is better for a short stay rather than a longer one.

“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This apartment is in a fantastic location. Tucked away in the Old part of
Corfu Town. It is so convenient for exploring the town and enjoying the
shopping and restaurants. The apartment is small but this is far
outweighed by its location. We met the owner as arranged who is really
friendly and helpful. It was a short walk through the pedestrianised area
to the apartment. The quality of the accommodation was good, although a
little lacking in utensils and crockery. But this wasn't a big problem.
There is no need to hire a car as this apartment is so central. Travelling
on local buses was straightforward and low cost.
I would definitely recommend this apartment especially for an out of season
getaway.
