I had a lovely stay at Eleni's apartment. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location. A taxi was organised for me from the airport and the taxi driver, Costas couldn't have been more welcoming. He even gave me a running commentary about Athens on my way to the apartment. When I arrived, Iliana was there to meet me. She was also great. Wifi was good and the bed was comfortable.
Eleni was a wonderful host and was very easy to get in touch with prior to our arrival. The flat was in an ideal and safe location - only a 5 minute walk to the Acropolis metro station - and was conveniently located for other areas of Athens such as Monastiriki, parliament, and of course the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum! The flat was spacious, clean, and the bed was comfortable. Would definitely recommend staying here for your trip to Athens.
This is a beautiful location near everything to do in athens. This is really a luxe to go walking in the morning to visit, to come back to the apartment to have a rest when it is too sunny and then go out again in another place as there are easy to reach walking. The apartment itself is very nice and comfortable. You can choice to go out in the touristic area of plaka or to walk in a less touristic one as nikis street or to do shopping in emou street or to walk at night to see the acropolis with lights. everything is around. Eleni and illiana are very kind. They will give all the information you need and arrange the taxi too. Eleni answers always quickly. The taxi arrangement is very convenient at friendly price and the taxi driver is also very kind. He waits for you at the airport and drives you exactly where the apartment is. It is very agreable after the flight. It was a great stay in a great location and we enjoyed a lot.
We had a fantastic stay at Eleni's place. The apartment is right in the center of Plaka, center of everything. You turn the street corner, there you are! Yet it is very quiet. It is clean, big, comfortable with AC, great bed, everything you need in the kitchen. Short walk to Acropolis, close to metro station. Can't ask for anything better.
We had a fabulous time in the Plaka. Great location close to Syntagma, metro, buses. Lots of fabulous restaurants, nearby but try those closer to Syntagma. Great experience.
We were welcomed by lliana, a really hospitable and nice young lady in the apartment . The flat was really charming and matched my expectations - they are exactly same as the pictures on Airbnb. It has almost everything we need for a short and comfortable stay. There are extra bedsheets and towels in the wardrobe, which were great since we could not find a cover for the quilt/blanket and used the bedsheets as a cover.
The cleanliness, however, wasn't perfect - the toilet bin was used and not cleared, and the floor was dusty with hair strands. I had to mop the floor on the day of our arrival as my feet turned a little blackish from the dust. We would have also preferred a bathroom floor mat to dry our feet when exiting the bathroom and for drying the bathroom floor. The sofa could also be a little dated - be careful sitting near the middle of it as I have sat on the metal support a number of times as the cushioning has thinned.
Other than these small inconveniences, the apartment was perfect for our short stay. Smacked right in Plaka, the most charming neighbourhood, restaurants and shopping were all very accessible on foot - the main shopping street with restaurants was just behind the apartment.
Tips for arriving at apartment:
(1) If you are arriving at the apartment directly, ring the bell that has no label on it - we were not communicated about this and did not know which bell to ring.
(2) It is more advisable to take the bus X95 directly on the right of the arrival hall at the airport instead of metro. It is easier to find, nearer to the arrivals hall, costs less, and stops at Syntagma square (same as metro but you avoid all the stairs) - in all, more convenient than metro, though it takes 15-20mins longer.
