I was in Athens for work and had a very pleasant stay in the appartement. The location is very convenient, just ten minutes by foot from Syntagma square. Shops are literally around the corner and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. It's located on a busy boulevard and you'll hear traffic both day and night, so not recommended for people who want peace and quiet. The place was light and clean and had everything I needed. I stayed for one week and also used the kitchen, which had everything I needed. Internet was fast and stable, only the television didn't work. I'll certainly come back.
Amazing location! Ran the marathon and this was 2 blocks from the finish line at the stadium. Host recommended amazing places to go and eat! Big place with lots of space. Worth every cent. Walking distance to everything, didn't need a hop on hop off bus.
Alexandros was very helpful and the apartment was lovely, much bigger than I imagined. It is lovely and quiet and a perfect place for exploring the city of Athens. With shops very close by, great fishmongers, grocery and some amazing bakeries. We used it as a base for a week as a journalist and graphic designer working on projects in Greece. Would definitely stay here again.
Directly after the booking we received a nice email from Alex explaining the surroundings and the route. When we arrived, we met with his mother as agreed and got a quick tour of the house. Checking out went by leaving the keys. All in all a good experience.
The house itself is very spacious (so many corridors?!). However, it really needs renovation. Everything (except the kitchen) feels like it can fall apart at any second: light switches that don't switch, broken power sockets, electricity cables isolated in aluminum foil, leaky toilet, no shower curtain, broken mirror, etc.
Most of the house is really noisy. It is next to a 4 lane (main)road with constant traffic. This makes the living room not comfortable to sit in.
The bedroom is okay: the airco works really well and the road is on the other side of the building, blocking most of the noise.
Алекс отличный хост! Вежливый и отзывчивый.
Квартира, в целом, соответствует фотографиям. Из минусов можно выделить, пожалуй, только отсутствие занавески в ванной и отсутствие окна в кухне. В остальном, все понравилось.
Дом удачно расположен, на соседней улице есть все необходимые магазины, остановка общественного транспорта в сторону центра в трех минутах хотьбы.
Well... It was really easy to get to Alex's place. From the airport via the metro. As Alex was travelling his friend was there to greet us. The apartment is lovely has some eccentricities (pictures and paintings) but very nice. The kitchen is also good though some parts could use a slight clean up. The place is located well next to plaka and sytagama.
We come from mumbai so the road noise did not bother us but I can see how some folks would not like it.
Overall the place is great and Alex is very helpful. He organized a cab for us as well. And was really quick to reply to my queries.
Would recommend this place for its price for sure!!
We stayed 3 people in Alex flat and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The apartment has all necessary means, it is very clean and spacious. The location is very good with sightseeing and nice restaurants near by. Alex could not be there himself to give us the key but he responded promtly on the phone and his very sweet mother let us in and showed us around. In total our stay was very comfortable and pleasant. I can definitely recommend it.
I stayed at this apartment with my parents and brother in July for 8 nights. The pictures accurately shows what to expect. It's a great apartment for anyone that is travelling to Athens on a budget. The apartment is located in a convenient neighbourhood with lots of charm. You can find everything you need nearby. Although the kitchen and bathroom are outdated - you can't go wrong with the reasonable price.
Although we never met Alexandro, he was a good host and responded to messages promptly. He also left city maps in the apartment, which was super convenient.
I would recommend this apartment for anyone that is looking for a good deal in Athens!
Our stay at Alexandros’ apartment was extremely disappointing. We emailed him four times and sent multiple messages on Air BnB before arriving to confirm that he would meet us when we arrived. Not only did he not respond to a single message, but he was not there to check us in. During the course of our three-day stay he did not come once to meet us nor respond to any of our messages. At other Air BnB’s the host has always come to greet us and spent the time giving us recommendations about things to do and see in the city.
The apartment was subpar compared to the photographs on Air BnB. The apartment is dark and not nearly as bright and inviting as the photographs indicate. Having stayed in a dozen Air BnB’s over the past five months, this was by far the worst one. The apartment was dirty, there was spore bearing mold in the coffee maker, there were live exposed electrical wires covered with foil and others with bulbs roughly attached to them, and a broken mirror in the bedroom (which he had emailed him to come and remove because of the safety issue—of course, we received no response and he did not come to remove it). The kitchen is not a “full kitchen” at all, as the ad claims, but includes one burner and a toaster oven. The shower has no curtain and so the entire washroom gets wet after showering. Upon arrival, none of the dishes appeared to have been properly washed—there was food caked on the dishes and everything (glasses, cups, utensils) were dirty beyond use.
It’s apparent that once he’s got your money he doesn’t care. Highly not recommended for anyone to stay. Even for the most adventurous it’s disgusting.
Flat of Alexandros has 3 big room. All are comfortable and well equipped.
The Kitchen and bathroom could be refreshed.
From metro line is 20 minutes walk, but to Temple of Zeus is just 25 minutes by foot so we gave up using metro.
But for this price - this place is worth visiting.
