Eddie is not a host, he is a SUPERHOST! He met us near a metro at midnight and told every we need to know. Great appartment, very clean and cozy! Nice location.
Eddie was a fantastic host. He showed us around the neighbourhood and gave us some very useful tips for how to do things in Athens.
The apartment is a nice size, with anything a couple could want. Everything was clean and in good condition. The AC and appliances all work and are in good condition. The apartment was well supplied with towels, bedding, dishes etc.
The neighbourhood is great. You have a bakery, a good size grocery, a convenience store, a pharmacy, and many good (and reasonably priced) restaurants and bars within just a block of the apartment. It is very close to the subway and within easy walking distance of everything downtown.
The only relatively minor thing you need to be aware of is the lack of wifi in the apartment. The wifi in the cafes and bars nearby is perfectly fine for surfing the net, checking your email and looking at facebook, but can be a bit dodgy and difficult if you want to do things like make bookings or send attachments.
My host Eddie was a fine host. He showed me around the neighborhood and bought me a cup of coffee for an initial chat. The flat was clean, modern, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The location in Pangrati was ideal for my work, and traditional tavernas and cafes were close at hand. And it is in a very safe and quiet area of the city, popular for academics. I look forward to staying in this or one of his other flats on future trips to Greece.
I stayed at Eddie's place for 2 weeks at the end of June. The apartment was very clean and had everything--furniture and kitchen supplies--you need to settle in! The location is great, close to lots of cafes and some of my favorite restaurants in Athens! The apartment itself is very quiet and beautiful and comfortable, with a big bed, nice bathroom, and little balcony. Eddie was super nice and helpful, I would recommend his apartment to others!
We are enjoyed a beautiful week in Athens. Eddie was very kind , helpful and friendly (he waited outside the flat for us when we arrived at midnight)
The flat is very nice, comfortable ,clean and located in a quiet area with very good public transport access.
Definitely recommend staying here!
Appartement tres fonctionnel, propre et bien localise! Eddie s est montre tres accueillant et disponible. Il est venu nous chercher a notre arrivee et nous a fait une petite visite du quartier.
Wir sind kurz nach Mitternacht angekommen, nachdem Eddi uns schon vorab die beste Verbindung per Mail geschrieben hat ging alles unkompliziert. Leider funktionierte mein Mobiltelefon nicht sofort und konnte daher keine sms versenden und bescheid geben das wir schon in der metro sitzen. Glücklicherweise war Eddie schon bei unseren Treffpunkt und brachte uns schnell zum Apartment. Dieses liegt nur wenige Minuten von der Station entfernt. Mitten im Zentrum und trotzdem in einer ruhigen Seitengasse gelegen. Eddie hat uns mit einem Frühstück erwartet, worüber wir uns sehr gefreut haben. Das Apartment hat alles und mehr was wir erwartet haben. Sehr sauber und gemütlich. Viele saubere Handtücher.Die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. (Gekocht habe ich nicht aber es gibt Töpfe etc....) Die Umgebung ist sehr sicher ich bin oft spät abends mit meiner Tochter zurückgekommen und hatte nie Probleme. Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt man kommt zu Fuß super ins Zentrum und die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die nahe liegende MetroStation mit direkter Verbindung zum Flughafen top! In unmittelbarer Umgebung gibt es einen Supermarkt Tavernen und nebenan eine tolle Bäckerei. Eddie war auch bei unserer Abreise sehr pünktlich und hat auch einen Tag vorher unseren Termin per Telefon bestätigt. Ich empfehle dieses Apartment natürlich gerne weiter auch meine Tochter hat dort gerne gewohnt.
