  • Katia was very friendly and helpful. She was a great host. That apartment is the perfect size for 2. The location is ideal, near the major attractions close to the metro. I would highly recommend it if you are coming to Athens

  • Despite our flight arriving at 6am, Katia was available to meet us at her room, generously allowing us to have early access. The room was clean, modern, well equipped and in a fantastic location for us, close to everything without being in the middle of busy tourist areas. The wi fi was great and allowed us to research and plan a wonderful two days of walking around amazing Athens. Thank you Katia.

  • Katia was a very pleasant host; she made our stay in Athens very enjoyable. Katia organised our transfers to and from the airport with a driver named Spyros who was excellent- he gave us lots of suggestions and tips for our travels in Athens and other Greek Islands.

    The apartment was in a fantastic location- walking distance to most tourist sights, with many excellent restaurants nearby including Restaurant Cabana and Manh-Manh, as well as Takis Bakery, one of the best bakeries in the neighbourhood. There are also supermarkets and mini markets available, should you wish to buy groceries. The apartment has a good sized kitchen if you plan to cook. Overall, it was clean and tidy, with the additional bonus of good wifi and cable TV.

    Katia was very quick to respond to emails, which was very much appreciated. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Athens!

  • My friend & 1 unfortunately missed the night booked at Katia's place due to a mis-connection in Doha - arriving into Athens 18 hrs after our scheduled time and running 8 hours behind our booked 3 day tour group !!! This did not stop Katia from arranging options for us to be met and connected with the tour group. She was a true host helping us get back on track with our holiday in Greece, and we never felt alone in an unfamiliar place.
    Many, many thanks to Katia and also Stavros who drove us to Napflio.

  • I stayed at Katia's apartment for the last three days of my honeymoon in Greece. I had a very hectic schedule with the wedding and couldn't contact her until the morning of my stay, which made the key exchange a little problematic. She arranged for a Friend, who is also a cab driver, to hand the keys over to me. The apartment is located in a very cozy and convenient part of Athens, which is easily accessible via metro. I had planned on taking the metro for 8euros to the apartment, however due to the key exchange situation, Katia required me to spend money on Cab fare, approximately 40-50euros (depending on the time of day). Though it ended up being very convenient and I appreciated her arranging for a Cab for us from the airport to her house, this extra cost for us could have been avoided, as the Cab driver ended up dropping us off to the apartment and another man met us there with the keys. Despite this detail, The cab driver and the other man who handed us the keys were super friendly and hospitable. I didn't have the chance to meet Katia, however she sent us some excellent recommendations for restaurants in the neighbourhood and tours to take around the city. The apartment is clean and we'll designed - it was the perfect little romantic apartment for our honeymoon!!

    *One caveat for American/Canadian visitors, the bathrooms in Greece typically use showers without doors, so the toilet and rest of the bathroom gets wet when you take a shower....Katia's bathroom was very clean and seemed newly renovated, however uses this European system.

  • The apartment was in a really great location! So close to everything, literally a couple minutes walk to the acropolis. Heaps of great restaurants and cafés close by. The apartment is a small but very functional and comfortable studio apartment. It felt very safe and secure, with a big heavy front door with many locks and a roller shutter on the balcony doors to block out the light.

    We didn't get to meet Katia but she was very quick to respond and super helpful! Her friend Spyros, the taxi driver was great! He picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. He gave us lots of sightseeing pointers and was a great help. The cost for the taxi trip one way was 40 euro.

    I'd definitely recommend this apartment!

  • The host was very friendly and suggested an amazing restaurant that we would not have gone to otherwise. The location was great, very close to the subway and very close to the plaka neighborhood.
