The apartment was comfortable and in a great location 5 minutes way from the Athens convention center and a pleasant 40 minute stroll to the sights and downtown. Ralou provided so much information before our arrival and took care to contact us after, we always felt we were in really good hands. She was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. Bed was incredibly comfortable and the apartment was clean and well stocked with everything we need for a 4 day business trip.
Ralou kept in touch to ensure I was comfortable and had everything I need.
Listing was accurate - a lovely and cosy apartment, close to everything.
A stay at Ralou’s was the perfect introduction to Athens. We were greeted with a plate of Greek Christmas cookies and a phone call from Ralou to ensure we had arrived safely. We appreciated her tips (especially about where to eat) and her attentive communication before and during our stay.
The apartment is a beautiful blend of old and new. The best feature is the balcony overlooking a garden, which we were able to enjoy even in winter. Despite our short stay, we truly felt at home thanks to Ralou’s hospitality and would happily stay again. Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ!
From the initial contact to the very last minute I knew that I was in for a special experience. Ralou took care of my every question and request, from helpful ideas on where to visit, organising me a taxi transfer on arrival and putting lovely coffee and fruit in the apartment for my convenience.
The location is perfect, a half an hour walk into the centre of the city with a metro and all that is needed nearby.
The apartment is beautifully appointed and every consideration has been taken to ensure a comfortable stay. Great wifi! And the sunshine that comes in throughout the day makes for a happy welcome feeling. As does the balcony and garden below.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Athens and hope to return for a longer visit next time. Thank you so much for welcoming me like a friend! Loved your city. And highly recommend your apartment to any visitors to it.
Ralou responded to my emails very quickly and sent, in advance of our arrival, detailed information about Athens, our flat and our neighborhood including places to eat, things to do and had a special gift waiting for us! She was unable to meet us herself but arranged for a knowledgable and helpful person to assist us when we arrived. Ralou was extremely accessible and made extra efforts to communicate - calling us shortly after our arrival to make sure everything went smoothly. The apt. Was very quiet especially considering how close we were to a very busy, high traffic, main thoroughfare. It was nicely appointed and clean.
Η περιγραφή ήταν ακριβής η γειτονιά πολύ καλή και η οικοδέσποινα έκανε τα πάντα για να νιώθουμε σαν το σπίτι μας
The apartment is in a great location and very close to the metro and buses but within walking distances to a lot of places. Ralou left a folder with tips on local restaurants and Mr Baker nearby with is a wonderful bakery. The apartment is very quiet with a nice deck in the sun. It was very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly recommend it and if we go back to Athens we would have no hesitation in staying there again.
Thank you again Ralou, you are a wonderful host
