Euclid could not have been more helpful. We arrived in the middle of a cold snap, and he brought a heater for us, and checked on us several times to make sure we were ok. The apartment is very well situated near bars and restaurants, and only a couple of minutes' walk from the Archeaological Museum. It was clean and tidy, with everything we needed. The view from the terrace is fantastic, with both the Parthenon and Lycabettus Hill visible. I would most definitely stay here again.
Really enjoyed Euclid's apartment. The neighborhood has a lot of good restaurants and street art. It's within a short walk of most of the city and the metro will take you most anywhere farther away.
The mattress is comfortable, wifi is good and there's a great view from the roof. Euclid was easy to reach and communicate with.
La casa para el precio que tiene es perfecta. No esperes diseño y decoración. Muy bien situada (Eksarjia) y con agradable terraza. Está Limpio y es cómodo, excepto esas luces de neón horrorosas. Tengo que decir que Euclidis me proporcionó rápidamente una lámpara de pié.
Si no esperas mucho, por el precio el sitio merece la pena y además Euklidis es bien majo.
Euclid a été un hôte très agréable, disponible et arrangeant. Son appartement en plein cœur d'Exarchia est très facilement accessible, bon marché, fonctionnel et assez grand pour passer quelques jours à Athènes.
Accurate, clean, well equipped, peaceful, good location. Thank you Euclid!
I spent a very good week in Euclid's flat. The property was as described, with a good working elevator and a spectacular view of Athens - rooftops, the Acropolis beautifully lighted at night, and the hills on the horizon in the day. The kitchen was well equipped including a washing machine! Excellent wifi and tables inside and out on the balcony too. Easy access to metro, taxis, and walking around the downtown area. I was a little startled at first by all the graffiti in the neighborhood, but Euclid assured me it was safe and it proved to be quite true. There is a great deal of graffiti throughout Athens. Euclid was a very kind and accommodating host.
We enjoyed a lot our stay at Euclid's place. Everything was as described, the house was easy to find and the position was good to visit the city by walking. Recommended for peolpe who don't expect anything special but a good place to spend a nice and easy vacation. Neighborhood is quiet but there's a lot of life around there. Euclid is a really kind person, he's always there if you need something, and it's also pleasent going out for a beer with him. Nice experience.
I was born in Athens, and I am systems analyst. My office is near the apartment, so you will always have support if needed. I travel a lot and know what a visitor expects from accommodation so you may expect the best of it. Wish you to have a great time!
