I and my sister stayed in the apartment from 20th to 25th of August. Manolis was very kind because he picked us at the station in Syntagma and showed the areas of the city to visit the city's best restaurants. The apartment is in a central district of Plaka, just few minutes from Monastiraki, the Acropolis and Syntagma square. The neighborhood has good and not expensive restaurants.
However, sleeping in the apartment was a nightmare. The noise of cars outside the apartment were too strong. In addition, during the night of the second day, we found two cockroaches in the kitchen. For this reason we decided not to cook. We asked for help to Costas but no one came to help us. Therefore, at our expense, we bought ananti-insect spray . The following day we found another cockroach in the kitchen, and only in thatcase we received help.
Moreover, the last day, also, the lock of the door was blocked, so we could not leave the apartment. Fortunately, after an hour of waiting, Costas and a locksmith were able to open the door.
On my arrival I found that that the listing was more like a hotel room, with kitchen and bathroom than an apartment. This was a little off putting at first but soon after I settled in to the central location of the apartment and soon after warmed to it as a single person in the room.
There were some minor issues with the washing machine, and shower head but nothing to cry about...the amazing thing was that I was able to secure a late check out which was a life saver so it all worked out fantastically for me.
All in all it was a fine stay and I would recomnd it to anyone looking for a secure apartment in central Athens (Plaka).
We had a fantastic stay at the apartment, and were sad to leave. The apartment is exactly as described/pictured and suited our needs perfectly. The location could not be better - within easy reach of all of the sights and next to some of the best restaurants in Plaka. The communication was great - we had a problem with our key at 6:30 one morning and they answered the phone immediately and even offered to come out to help us (which wasn't necessary in the end). Thank you!
It's hard to imagine a better place to stay and see Athens. There is no view but everything else is perfect. Comfortable, spacious, good air conditioning, great facilities and located so close to the main sites and eating areas. Would highly recommend it to anyone!!
Very good location, near Plaka and subway. Clean apartment with an amazing street art painting and excellent wifi. Lia, Dean's friend, was of great help and very nice. With a lot of useful information. Good choice!!
Really nice apartment in good location. Bed was super comfy and all guys we spoke to sorting it out for us were helpful. Had an issue with key breaking in the lock and they sorted it out really quickly which was appreciated.
Would definitely stay again.
Excellent quaint place. Very well located. Walking distance to everything you would need including Acropolis and the nightlife of Placa.
