We had a wonderful stay at Leandros's apartment. We arrived super late (at 2:30 a.m) and he was extremely nice and met us at the apartment so we were able to check in. The apartment is comfortable and close to the bus stop. We highly recommend this place!

Such a good place in an amazing location! The apartment has absolutely everything you need. The balcony was especially wonderful for me cause it's just so chill and nice to sit there in the evening with a view on the trees and people walking by. You'll have an amazing time

I absolutely loved my stay in Athens, and out of three places Ive stayed in Europe thus dar, this has been my favorite. I was here for one month, and the apartment was ideal for my work at home, plus getting to the city pretty easily. There are two supermarkets close by, and you can walk to the city center in about 25 minutes. Leandros was great, and even brought me a change of sheets a couple of times. The big windows in the apartment were one of my favorite things.

Leandros is an awesome host. He was very accommodating and was always reachable by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) if we had any questions or concerns. The flat is about a 20 minute transit ride into the city centre but the bus stop is only 3 minutes from the house so it really wasn't a problem. The flat had all basic amenities, and the wifi connection was great!

Leandros was a great host. Everything was described accurately. The place was great. A little outside of the downtown city center areas but we were able to either walk or take a cab with no problems. Would definitely stay again.

I was born in Athens and lived there until I was 25. I now live on the beautiful island of Andros, a near- by island that was my vacation spot until 2004, when I decided that this was where I wanted to live permanently, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. During the summer months I work in a local hotel as this is one of the best ways to meet people, especially travellers... and who knows, maybe we will meet at some point in time... I also love travelling, meeting new people, learning new cultures - and just seeing as much of the world as I can. As a traveller myself, I know what it means to have good accommodation, friendly hosts and good information. So with this in mind I hope that I can fullfill all these requirements and ensure that your stay in Athens will be as you expecteded.
It will be my pleasure to do whatever I can to meet all your needs so that you return home with the best memories.
