Alex was a great host, and the apartment was in a great area. He was very helpful and left us some maps and restaurant suggestions! The apartment is very big, but is quite cold as only the bedroom has heating/airconditioning. The sofa bed is in a room facing out towards the road and this is very noisy so it is best to stay in the main bedroom! Other than that it was great!
Alexandros a été disponible pour nous accueillir malgré l'heure très tardive de notre arrivée. Il nous a donné plans et conseils pour que notre voyage et notre passage chez lui soit parfait.
C'est la mère d'Alexandros qui a gentiment assuré l'accueil dans cet appartement vaste et clair, proche du stade olympique et du sympathique quartier de Pangrati. Par rapport à mon attente, et en tenant compte du fait que c'est la première fois que je passais pas Airnbnb (j'ai peut-être manqué de vigilance à la lecture de l'annonce), il présente deux inconvénients:
1. sa situation, sur une avenue très passante, en fait de jour comme de nuit un lieu vraiment bruyant; par exemple, les balcons ne sont pas utilisables et les réveils se font avec le flot des voitures, vers 7 heures du matin;
2. l'équipement de la cuisine est minimal: la plaque électrique permet de faire chauffer de l'eau, c'est à peu près tout.
En dehors de ça, rien à redire: c'est propre et l'agencement est très pratique puisqu'il permet de moduler le séjour en fonction d'éventuels arrivants, grâce à un système de cloison mobile.
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.
