Iosif and Theano were very welcoming and we had a great stay in their apartment. Everything that we needed was available in their home - appliances, extra blankets, adapters. The space is actually quite bigger than how it looks in the pictures. The furniture was comfy and the balcony was very cozy for morning breakfasts. Overall, we had a great stay, and it felt like home. Also, Iosif and Theano were available simply by phone or email. They responded to us very quickly. Thank you Iosif and Theano.
We once again felt very welcomed in their apartment. The apartment was very clean, spacious, airy and bright. We started our trip by staying in this apartment and ended in the same apartment, it had a very homely feeling attached to it.
Iosif and Theano were very communicative and flexible with the check in / check out timings. We coordinated with Theano and the apartment was kept ready before we arrived. Iosif was there to receive us well before time.
Apartment is as described in the listing. The supermarkets, medical stores, mobile stores are in the vicinity. Also the bus stop is few minutes walking distance away, which takes you the centre and the frequency of buses is also very good. The apartment is located in a very quiet neighborhood, so its ideal for a family vacation.
We would choose this apartment once again, when we come back to Athens.
Losif and Theano arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and checked us in even at 11pm. Losif welcomed us to the apartment and gave us all the information about the neighborhood and public transport. The apartment was clean, spacious and very nice. The neighborhood was quiet and not far from the city center.
We only had problems with finding the bus stop back to the apartment near Victoria metro station because we hadn't noticed the maps of nearby bus stops in metro stations.
We enjoyed the stay and recommend the apartment to everyone else.
Right from the beginning Theano and Iosif were very helpful right from giving proper information to reach the apartment from the airport and also offering flexible check in options. We stayed here for the initial 3 days of our trip and the last days after returning from Islands. The couples offered us a storage area to put our bulky luggage's so that we could travel light to the Islands.
Iosif received us and was very warm and gave us all the necessary information to travel around, nearby supermarkets, simcard, tickets. The couples were always accessible by phone or per email.
The apartment was very spacious, fully equipped, clean and located in a quiet locality. The public transport bus 2 & 4 are very closely located and has a very good connection to the centre of Athens.
Our entire family enjoyed the stay and dinners at the apartment balcony. We would definitely recommend this apartment for next travelers.
Thank you Theano and Iosif for your hospitality.
Nice apartment that met our needs. Iosif gave us a very warm welcome. The apartment is situated in the Kypseli area of Athens which we found very pleasant. Easy access to center with trams/buses.
Iosif and Theano have a wonderful home and we had the privilege to stay there for almost 3 days.
Athens was the last stop in our 12 day trip around Greece and their home was exactly the warmth and comfort we needed.
We were a group of 5 people and each and every one loved the place.
Iosif and Theano's is a no brainier choice for any future trips to Athens.
