  • Rio was a great host. Responded quickly to our questions and showed us around the neighbourhood. The apartment is on a great location in the centre of Athens, close to subway and main sights. The apartment itself is small but cosy and more important clean and quiet.

  • This is an excellent find! Very cool apartment look, modern wetroom, lovely clean, little kitchen, very authentic and central location. I loved it. I know where I am staying from now on when I am in Athens. Maria, Rio's wife gave me the key and explained everything. I particularly loved the little thoughtful details -- a nice collection of DVDs, hooks on the walls, just like if you were at home.

  • The host was fantastic and looked after us well. We were given all the directions necessary to go to and from the property to all the near-by attractions without problems. The surrounding neighbourhood of Mets has a few steps to negotiate but with very little traffic which means there is little noise. The property is in walking distance of the major attractions and Syntagma Square.

  • Fantastic hosts and fantastic apartment - exactly as described and better. Within walking distance of the Acropolis and Plaka and a very friendly taverna at the bottom of the road! Maria was charming and very helpful, provided us with a map of Athens with all the sights we wanted to visit highlighted and information on how to get there.
    A perfect start to our holiday and we hope to see you again soon!

  • As others habe said, this is a wonderful place to stay! Loved the tiny apartment, and loved the safe, convenient area. We didn't get a chance to meet Rio as he wasout of town but his neighbour, Elena, did a great job of orienting us and making sure we were set up. We would highly recommend this as a base for exploring Athens!

  • Bien que nous n'avons passé qu'une nuit. Nous avons bien apprécié notre passage chez Rio! À ne pas manquer: la taverna au pied de l'escalier! Appartement simple et lit très confortable!

  • The studio is just as lovely as the hosts, who have taken great care to decorate it in a modern and comfortable look and provide all sorts of little details to make your stay feel like home (an alarm clock by the bed, hooks on the walls...). And it's on a leafy quiet street in a very authentic neighbourhood, and also close to all the sights on foot. What more could you want :-)?

  • We had a great stay with in Rio's apartment. It was a lovely, very clean studio apartment off a nice pedestrian walkway. The position was great - it was close to the Acropolis and Plaka and we walked our way around central Athens from the apartment. Maria, Rio's wife, met us when we arrived and when we were leaving. She was very friendly, gave us a map of Athens and pointed out some good areas. She even recommended a nice restaurant just 2 minutes away where we had some of the cheapest and best food we ate in Greece. The only reservation I might have in recommending it to everyone is that the stairs to the bedroom are quite steep so if you have any mobility issues maybe it's not for you. However for us, it was ideal and we would happily stay here again if we are ever back in Athens.
