I was only one day in Athens because of a flight delay and made the reservation on the spot. Ioanna responded immediately. Her appartment was great and she made me feel very welcome. Although only for 1 night, she gave me some very nice tips about Athens and the Islands.
Ioanna provides a lovely home and was very welcoming. She was the epitome of hospitality and friendliness. This would be the perfect place to stay if you want to spend a week in Athens and don't know your way around. She provided a walkabout so I could become acquainted with the community like restaurants, bus service, markets.
Anyone who stays with Ioanna will leave with a glow of joy
Staying at Ionnna's was the best part of my trip to the Athens! Highly recommend!! From the moment I booked with her the communication exchange was quick and helpful. When I arrived I got the sense that I was "home". Her apartment has an amazing feel to it and you feel comfortable to be yourself, like its your own home away from home. It's incredibly beautifully decorated - like something out of a fairytale! It's super clean and has a very positive vibe! Ioanna has a very open heart and wonderful attitude and she is willing to help with anything you might need. We went for a walk through her very nice neighborhood and ate souvlaki together and also went to a May Day festival. It was so much fun
and I felt like I had a true Greek experience - not just a usual tourist trip. I got lucky because I know she is usually busy with work, but if she has time she shares it with you. So lovely! She is an amazing person and has incredible stories. Not only did I have a fabulous experience at Ioanna's apartment, but I also made a friend for life. Ioanna, you're magnificent!
I extended my stay with Ionnna for another week for all the right reasons - Ioanna's beautiful home felt like my own home, and I can say that I made a lifelong friend.
I had the most fantastic experience staying at Ionanna’s apartment at Nea Smyrni. She was the most helpful, generous and warm host. The room was exactly what it said on the tin, even better – gorgeous, tidy, exceptionally clean, inviting and peaceful with its own balcony full of greenery. I even had my own small bathroom. I also loved the area as it is a bit out of the heavy tourist area (with an easy and quick access to it as well as the sea), but in an authentic Greek neighbourhood. That was important to me as this allowed me to practice my Greek and be closer to the culture and their way of life. I’ve just extended my stay for another week in the same room and that speaks for itself.
Ζεστός και πολύ φιλόξενος χώρος σε μια πολύ ήσυχη και ασφαλή γειτονιά στο κέντρο της Αθήνας.Ιδανική επιλογή για ταξιδιώτες που επισκέπτονται την Αθήνα απο άλλες χώρες.Πεντακάθαρο και διακοσμημένο με γούστο και υψηλή αισθητική.Η Ιωάννα είναι πολύ φιλόξενη και διακριτική μέσα στο όμορφο σπίτι.
Ionna and Abdoul are very kind people,very welcoming,very friendly and (website hidden) bedroom was very comfortable,i slept very well because the bed was very very comfortable.And there were also very comfortable cushions in it (which were also very useful to me as i liked very soft pillows and so i used them as such).I could use the bathroom,the kitchen,the living room,the big balcony any time all that just as if i had been in my own house and i had the feeling to be "at home".The dog,Malou,is a very kind dog i like a lot too and who liked me and everybody there.I could meet Ionna and abdoul neighbours and their very kind dog,and also Ionna's cousin,and Ionna's best friend too.All of them are very kind people too.And so was the person who rented the other room for about one week during the time i stayed on holidays at Ionna's home.I was very happy there and Ionna has even very kindly told me that the friends i have in Athens could come and see me any time.The wifi works perfectly in all the flat (my bedroom included of course) which was very useful to me,the phone network (which i used as i had brought my mobile phone) works too and this too was very useful to me.Ionna has also told me that i could take anything in the fridge,any time,which was also very kind of her.And also i had very nice conversations with her and abdoul.There is a lift which is very useful too and the area is very safe and friendly.I met two very nice fruit sellers in the street i took every day to go to the tram and it was very nice for me to "talk" with them too.I preferred the tram to the bus (even if the bus is much nearer,at least for me as i like walking slowly ) because i liked the landscape which were on my way when i went to the tram and the landscapes i could see when i took the tram itself.There is also a nice park near the tram.Ionna helped me a lot and always,each time i needed any help or information : she told me where to find the bus,the tram,she even brought me to a supermarket with her car one day and abdoul took my errands and brought them to the second floor.Ionna even very kindly mended the buttons of my clothes which needed to be mended.She also very kindly offered me to wear a beautiful and very comfortable white bathrobe each time i would need one as soon as i arrived at her home.She is really a very very kind person we got on very well and i will be happy to go back to Ionna's home.
