  • We enjoyed our stay at Rio's Studio Appt. It was in a very convenient location to explore the old city of Athens by foot. Walk to Metro, tram and bus all within 5 min.
    Rio was kind enough to show us around the area and pointed out a few places to eat and shop. The local restaurant was fantastic and reasonably priced.
    We would definitely stay here again.

  • This place was an ideal pad for a short stay in Athens for a couple. The studio flat is small, but comfortable, and well situated for central Athens. Rio's wife was there to meet us when we arrived (late) and she was very helpful.

  • What a great location! Rio and Maria's flat was exactly as described ; clean, and wonderful! We got many great suggestions and help from Maria. There is much to see and do close! Thanks Rio and Maria !

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Rio's apartment in Athens. The location was great - a local neighborhood with quiet, tree-lined streets, but an easy walk to so many sights. We met Rio's wife, and she was very helpful explaining the apartment, how to access the wi-fi, and about the area.

    The apartment itself is a great space with everything you need and a comfortable bed. We would definitely stay here again!

  • A perfect place to rest and walk into athens. Nice people!

  • My experience trying to get to Rio's was a bit of a Homerian epic. Armed only by my Greek street map and shamelessness in asking for directions, I paid the consequences of not planning ahead properly. Of course, these consequences were just me being lost in the beautiful tree-lined back streets of Akropoli. When I finally arrived however, Rio welcomed me with a graciousness, warmth, and professionalism that is a testament to his hosting experience. After leaving me to unpack, he brought me a glass of lemonade and showed me around the neighborhood, personally pointing out restaurants favored by local taxi drivers and students along the way. The flat itself was spacious and trendy, equipped with Internet, a TV, and a very comfortable bed. The kitchen was also stocked with a great selection of tea and we were able to cook in it the second night of our stay with no problems whatsoever. Otherwise, the place is extremely central and in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Rio and his family are a lovely bunch and I could not recommend a place to stay in Athens more than Rio's. Hopefully next time I make the trip down, I'll be staying for a bit longer. :)

  • The stay at Rio's apartment was a big success. We got a very warm welcome, which corresponded with the place we made to our little home for three days. The building itself and its neighborhood makes you feel like in a village-like oasis in the middle of the big city. There are very authentic and advisable restaurants nearby. The interior of the studio is simple but functional and obviously created with big heart and intelligence (and manpower:)). Rio and his family turned out to be really agreeable hosts: At the same time very discreet, but helpful when we needed their help. Highly recommendable!

  • Rio, home owner, did everything he can do and he and his wife Maria was really kind. And house was clean and cozy. Wanna go there again.

  • Rio is a wonderful and warm host! This dreamy studio apartment with a mezzanine bedroom had everything needed to make us feel at home. 10 minutes from the Acropolis and into the heart of Athens, we only wish we could have stayed another night but the room was all booked up! Satisfaction #10
