Helena and Chryssa were faultless in the management of this apartment. All communications were clear and timely and Chryssa's welcome was very warm.
My husband and I rented this apartment, at premium summer rates, and were encouraged in our choice by the excellent reviews of previous guests. Sadly, I cannot say our experience matched theirs. We had difficulty with the hot water system which struggled to provide sufficient hot water for two moderate, consecutive showers. The apartment is described as luxurious. It is not. The bed linen and towels had seen better days. But most disconcerting was the general presentation of the apartment. While the view was amazing, the terrace was littered with uncared for pot plants and cleaning debris. Discarded rubbish had been left in one of the pots. Inside the apartment, empty wine bottles had not been removed from under the kitchen sink, coffee grounds and a used filter remained in the coffe pot and a dirty tissue was still evident under the bed. Food from previous guest remained in the fridge and in the cupboards. This is very welcome in most cases. Why discard a newly opened jar of jam or bottle of oil? However, food items dated 2011 and stale bread left in the fridge are not appealing. I regret sounding so negative but this was my experience. The location is fantastic...all that was promised. The appliances , the dishwasher , coffee maker, oven and washing machine......were mostly first rate. It is a shame that the apartment was not presented to its best advantage.
Judith is 100% right in the part of her review regarding the state of cleanliness of the apartment. Unfortunately she informed us upon her departure not giving us a chance to offer her the high standard that other previous guest have enjoyed. We can not justify the poor job of the cleaning lady, so we had to change her.
Judith was very polite communicating her worries but i believe that her strong feelings regarding the cleaning condition, made her to underestimate the quality of the apartment. No one before or after her stay experienced any problems with hot water and certainly bed linen and towels are in great shape. Anyway, that does not change the fact of the bad cleaning condition, but as we assured her this will not happen again as we changed cleaning lady.
We spent 5 nights in this lovely apartment during March-April 2015. The view of the Acropolis is truly stupendous and was the highlight of the apartment. The apartment is very well located for tourists: both the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum are just a few minutes' walk away. It is also very easy to get from the apartment to less touristy parts of the city. The apartment is furnished in an older style, as the photographs accurately show, with plenty of comfortable spaces (both indoor and outdoor) to take full advantage of the view. Helena and Vassili were excellent hosts: their communication was always rapid and helpful, and their airport pickup service was well worth using after a long flight. Thank you.
From start to finish the stay at the apartment was awesome. Helena was the perfect hostess, she arranged a pick up to and from the airport (with the lovely Nikki), the apartment was really roomy, it had all the things you would expect (dishwasher, washing machine etc) plus super fast wifi. The apartment was clean and I loved it when I found a cupboard, stocked with things like bleach, so we could clean up after ourselves. The view from the patio is EXACTLY like the picture, it was a real treat. For a stress free experience, coming into a new and strange city I would highly recommend the transfer service that Helena can arrange. Our driver (Nikki) told us everything about the apartment before we got there, she gave us the keys, dropped us off out the front and RANG us (on the apartment phone) to make sure we got in OK. Now thats worth every penny of a 32 EUR cab fare. Thanks for everything Helena, when we travel to Greece next time we will be sure to look you up.
Beautiful apartment where the views are as good as the pictures show. In an excellent place for sight seeing. Most of the main attractions were within walking distance. No noise from the streets below to disturb us during the time we were there. The pick up was really good to meaning we didn't have to worry about getting there. Clean and well equipped. All in all a great place to stay in Athens!
Helena and her staff are amazing. I've never felt so welcomed. The clear communications were extremely helpful as we were foreigners. The private airport pickup service was amazing.. we were greeted with hugs. I can't imagine a better location in Athens. It is close to the market, the acropolis, eating in Plaka. On top of that it was the absolute best airbnb we have stayed in. The view was amazing. The living arrangements were top notch. We were there for a 1 day visit, however we are now planning a week long visit in the future. We are looking forward to using this airbnb again!
Our stay in Athens was amazing! It was a special occasion for us, and Helena only made it more memorable. We absolutely loved the apartment, and the location. It was close to everything you could ever want to see for a long weekend trip. Anything we needed was only a phone call or email away, with fast responses. Helena even helped us with sightseeing ideas since the weather wasn't so great... The transportation to the airport was perfect, and certainly helped us out with our early flights. Would definately stay there again - and would certainly recommend to anyone wanting an amazing apartment in the heart of Athens, Greece.
It was an amazing experience. Like the first time, Helena and Vassilis are very generous and humble. Vassilis was a perfect tour guide and photographer in our tour Temple of Poseidon. My honeymoon couldn't be better.
