The apartment was really very good. Even better then the pictures in Airbnb. We did not have any kind of problem.
The location is good and with 5€ you are in the city centre by taxi or you can take bus or metro and you will be in Syntagma Square in 20 minutes.
The experience is really advised if you want to know Athens.
The apartment is in very good conditions as described and as we've expected it. George did a very good job in organising a pick-up service from the airport. No problem with the neighberhood. We can highly recommend this site. The walking distance to the metro stations Kallithea and Tavros are ok (15 min) with children.
Bel appartement très spacieux (2 grandes chambres) et un immense salon. Lit 2 personnes coté cuisine. Une charmante petite terrasse au soleil!
L'appartement est au 3ème étage (petit ascenceur) d'un petit immeuble dans un quartier calme, on y dort bien. Le seul inconvénient c'est qu'il est un peu loin du centre d'Athènes (15 minutes à pied de la station de métro, et entre 20 et 25 mns de métro) par contre à seulement 4 stations du Pirée.
Le voisin le plus proche de l'appartement fait un peu de zèle, il nous a indiqué qu'il avait eu des réclamations, que nos enfants avaient fait trop de bruit en fermant la porte de l'appartement alors qu'il était 16h!!! Sachant que la plupart du temps on se levait tard, qu'on partait la journée et qu'on se couchait tot! Pas très cool...
La communication avec George était parfaite, il s'est occupé de nos allers/retours à l'aéroport et c'était bien agréable de ne pas avoir à courir avec les valises (payé 50 € pour 5 au lieu de 40 € en bus et métro).
George was a wonderful host. He responded to my many email in a prompt timely manner. He was very professional, helpful, and made arrangements getting us to & from the airport. The apt was big and spacious and easily fit 5 adults. On the other hand, the owner was very grumpy and short tempered. He talked to us like we were children when explaining things around the apt!! We never got the TV to ever show a channel. The hallway lights were never on in the stairs so at night, it was very dark. The elevator only holds 1 person & 1 suitcase. The owner lives across the hall & yelled at us when we were leaving to tour Athens at 10am!! I would use George to help me find an apt but that owner needs to treat people nicer.
The 5 of us stayed at the flat and everything was great. The apartment is big enough for 8 people, clean, comfy. The location is a little far, but taxi is so cheap so it wasn't a problem. The owner was helpful and pleasant. The only thing he asked of us is to be quiet after 22:30 because of some previous guests who made such noise that the police had to intervene.
It was really good!! The appartment is big and clean, the linen is white as snow and the towels are soft:)) the district is really nice - not touristic but the real athens district - awsome! 5-7 Eur by taxi to go to everywhere in the historical center.
If you need a transfer - ask George! He has organised all the transfers for us (and we had at least 5 during 3 days!!!)
Nothing to say - if you look something authentic, without tourists at every street, if you want to see real athens people and to feel their hospitality but to be not very far from the center - you should rent this appartment!
Great place, very comfortable for the four of us (could easily hold more). It's a longer, but entirely reasonable walk to the Acropolis, and George was very helpful with helping to arrange a 4am transfer to the airport for an early flight.
