  • We had a great time in Athens. The apartment was very conveniently located to shopping and sights. The space was clean and spacious.

    Response from Theodore & Reshma:

    Yes Vicki, you are right, I apologize for the mix up. It seems I too was on the move those days and with guests coming and going, I had my wires crossed (so to speak) momentarily. Prior notice in the norm and this time was an exception, unfortunately it happened on your visit...

    I hope everything was fine otherwise?

  • This Apartment could not be better placed I know the area well as I lived a few blocks away for a year and was delighted to find somewhere so well priced in the old neighbourhood. You can get everywhere more or less on foot. There are no great views but it is clean and though it has an internal sitting room come kitchen it has all the facilities WiFi worked perfectly, bathroom small but functional. Main bedroom very big second bedroom more than adequate if you needed it.
    As someone else pointed out central Athens like any other city can be noisy but really you should be out there too so who cares. I picked up the keys from the helpful lady in the green grocers down below and knew the restaurants in the area, its where you come for good cheep japanese food in central athens!
    The apartment is typical of the area where the ground floor is shops a couple of floors of offices and people living on the upper floors. The floor of the apartment seems to be filled with empty offices so it feels very private.
    Never met the hosts but they were very efficient communicators.
    Will be staying again if they let me.

  • We had a great time in Athens.
    We couldn't see Theodore, but he gave me much information and his colleagues helped us on the present day!
    The location is more than useful, and the room was clean as a whole.
    Thank you, Theodore and George!

  • Excellent apartment with everything you may need. The very center of Athens. Very clear organization of arrival. Good communications. Theodore always available to help. Everything was great! Highly recommend!

  • The apartment is good value for money - it's right in the centre of everything, so it meant it was occasionally a bit noisy (we were there on Friday & Saturday) but had everything we needed. The apartment is fairly basic (e.g. you had to hold the shower head up) but it was as described and was clean, and for the location it's a great price. Theodore was very helpful and always responded quickly to my questions and it was easy to pick up the keys.
    Athens is a great city, really loved all the sites and there was a huge variety of independent places to go for great food and drinks.

  • It was pleasure for us to stay at this apartments. Super location (the center of Athens, metro station and Parliament in 3 minutes to walk), wide rooms, king-size bed and all necessary equipment for comfortable staying. Owners are very polite and hospitable people. We recommend this apartments for staying.

    Нам понравилось пребывание в этих аппартаментах. Очень удобное расположение (центр Афин, станция метро и Праламент в 3 минутах ходьбы), просторные комнаты, огромная кровать, и всё необходимое для комфортного пребывания. Хозяева очень вежливые и гостеприимные люди. Мы рекомендуем эти аппартаменты для проживания.

  • La ubicación es perfecta para turistas: a 200 metros de Plaza Syntagma y de la calle Ermou, rodeado de lugares para comer, y para comprar alimentos, cajeros automáticos, casas de cambio, comercios de todo tipo. El edificio está viejo, sucio y mal mantenido, al igual que los demás edificios de la cuadra. Sin embargo la sensación fue de seguridad todo el tiempo. y el Apto estaba bien. Las comodidades fueron suficientes para 2 personas. El lugar de estar no tiene ventanas y está equipado como oficina; además el baño es un poco pequeño, pero todo está correctamente equipado y funciona: buen wi-fi telefono local, agua caliente, heladera, cocina eléctrica, lavarropas, toallas y toallones, plancha, aire acondicionado en todos los ambientes. Faltaría un poco de mantenimiento (apretar grifería de cocina, reemplazar algunos utensilios de cocina que no están en muy buen estado, agregar una mesa de luz en el dormitorio).
    Nos costó mucho la comunicación, tanto con el anfitrión como con Airbnb. Este es más un problema nuestro por no manejar suficiente inglés, pero ayudaría que Airbnb tuviera un 0800 con alguién que hable español. No conocí a Theodore, el anfitrión, pero dejó las cosas bien organizadas. Personalmente volvería a repetir la experiencia con él, pero no intentaré nuevas reservas a través de Airebnb, mientras no dispongan de una mejor atención a los clientes que sólo hablan español.

  • Theodore's flat is in a great location and had everything we needed for our two night stay. We had a little trouble getting the keys as we were arriving late, but we contacted Theodore and he sorted it out for us very promptly. Thanks Theodore!
