We loved this place. Dimitris made us very welcome and gave us a basic orientation to the city. The place is very centrally located. Would definitely recommend it.
Ranina is really the person to stay with when you are in Athens. She was so helpful from the beginning when I made the reservation to the day I checked out. Although I never had the chance to meet her in person, you can honestly feel that she really wants to make your trip in Athens a memorable one. (Her boyfriend Dimitri was also very helpful and welcoming as well!) Not to mention her communication is amazing - extremely fast responses and very helpful. The apartment is very cozy and it was like a 6 minute walk to the metro station (extremely convenient in getting around Athens). What you see in the pictures are extremely accurate. The apartment was clean and she provided a lot of items needed to make your stay comfortable. The neighborhood is safe and you really feel like a local yourself. Also, there are a several local restaurants close to her apartment (very yummy Greek food) that you can go to if you do not want to wander far. Also, what touched me the most was that she even helped me organize transportation to the airport when it was too early for the subway to even start running! I really want to thank her for that. I would totally recommend Ranina as your host when you visit Athens!
Flat was so nice, clean, and had everything you could need. about 5 minutes walking to main square, 15-20 min walk to the acropolis. really great location. Ranina and Dimitris were so helpful and welcoming! They met us at the metro station to show us the way to the apartment and pointed out all the good places to eat. They were so helpful in telling us everything there is to do in athens and responded to any questions I had! Perfect hosts, would recommend to anyone!
Ranina was an absolute joy and pleasure to work with as a host. Her and her mister took their time to explain all the sights to see, places to eat, and streets to walk down. The apartment was lovely and clean and we felt very much at home. Ranina was very quick to respond to any questions we had and their wrap around balcony is just gorgeous :)) Very close to the center (10 min walk) yet far enough away from city noise.
Ranina was very friendly and gave us a lot of useful informations. The apartment is nicely decorated. We enjoyed the spacious balcony with a view of the Lycabettus.
Ranina nos atendió estupendamente. Quedamos en el metro para acompañarnos hasta el apartamento, allí nos dio recomendaciones sobre lugares, locales y restaurantes que visitar.
El apartamento muy confortable, limpio y cerca del centro.
We did not get to meet Ranina but her boyfriend Dimitris. He even came to pick us up from the metro station. On our way to the apartment he showed us some nice places to eat or drink. Dimitris is very nice and very friendly. When we were inside the apartment he took time to give us some information about places to see, things to do. We really apreciated this. The apartment is very nice, cosy, clean and the balcony is fantastic. We enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony sitting in the sun. The neighbourhood is quiet and close to the metro station. Actually, we have taken a lot of taxis as they are very cheap. But the apartment is also on walking distance of Monastiraki. We enjoyed our visit to Athens at Ranina's place and we can highly recommend it.
