Chris was my and my friends first Airbnb experience. He was super cool and understanding that he made us feel like in our own home in Athens. Even though he was injured and in bed rest (we hope you are feeling well and ready to swim in a week!) he helped us to anything we might need or ask for. This was a very fun three days and the best start for Airbnb with a sensible and considered host :)
Chris est un hôte parfait, à la fois disponible et discret, nous sommes très à l'aise chez lui. Il a tout fait pour faciliter notre séjour et le rendre agréable.
Le logement est conforme à la description, et bien situé dans Athènes.
Je recommande sans problème.
Nous sommes restés une seule nuit chez Chris, qui s'est montré très accueillant et sympathique. Son logement est un peu excentré pour une visite touristique d'Athènes, mais il est en revanche très confortable, propre et calme.
Great place, great value! The room was spotless and comfortable, and Chris made us feel very welcome. We only had 1 night in Athens but Chris' place is convenient with public transportation, so we could see everything we wanted to see. Chris sent us perfect directions and lots of information about the city before we arrived, which really helped plan our trip. Highly reccomend!
It was our first experience with AirBnB and if every host is like Chris, our trip will be awesome ! Chris suggested us good restaurants, nice places to visit and reassured us about our worries regarding what's happening in Greece.
The place was clean and had everything you need for a good stay. He even provided us with really good coffee and eggs from his father's farm, and we were able to do some laundry. He was really attentive to our needs and quite helpfull. The bed and pillows are a bit hard but it's a really small detail because who needs to sleep anyway ;)
The dog is really cute and friendly and for you ladies, Cindy found Chris really good looking ;) hehe
Chris was awesome. Very friendly and hospitable... even when he was not well, he managed to always check in on me and see if he could assist with anything. Very cool guy
Room and facility for cost paid–
His humble abode was cosy and sufficient. Very pleased with the amenities and privacy of my room was excellent.
TRANSPORT ACCESSIBILITY –
The bus stop is a 2min walk away and gives you easy access to many touristy locations. Getting home was reasonably easy too, you just need to be conscious of the bus numbers and make note of stops you walk past... I even found that 2min from the bottom of Lycabettus, I got a direct bus straight back to the stop near the apartment so was pleased indeed. Train station Kato Patisia is a bit of a hike for the average person, but very doable and nice walk if you dont mind a good stroll.
Supermarket – Access to supermarket and corner stores is immense, there's a lot! Also, down the hill there is a great little cafe on the corner of Patision and Ippolitou (name starts with the Pi sign) that have local dishes or nibbles for reasonable prices.
Chris was very friendly, and if you keen to go out and party, he can show you around!
The place was good value and having a friendly dog there was very nice.
The place is away from the city centre, but easy to get subway to anywhere.
