PROS: The location is GREAT, everything in the apartment works well: hot water, TV, WiFi etc. It had a full kitchen so easy to prepare meals. Washing machine all chemicals needed, coffee, tea, sugar and oil etc were also provided. There was bread, butter, coffee and OJ provided to start out and the best feature of the apartment is the AWESOME view of acropolis specially when it is lit at night, and it is visible from the bedroom as you lay in bed!!!
CONS: The apartment is TINY. It is suitable for 2 people, 3 only if the third one is a child. We were four and we were totally cramped. There is no space to move in the rooms which are overly furnished with furniture that does not fit in the room. I am a 5'1" 110lbs person and I couldn't really stand in the shower and move my hands without touching the walls and curtain. The overall condition of the apartment is dingy and broken-downish. It is more like that very old NY City apartment which even after a thorough cleaning, looks dingy and smelly. Mind you that the apartment was "clean" it just didn't "look" that way. The rugs in the room were filthy though, we never walked around bare-feet and used slippers in the bathroom and shower basically everywhere. Also there was no microwave so reheating food was not easy.
I will recommend this apartment to 2 people who don't really care to have 'modern' or 'renovated' accommodations but would value the view and location of the apartment which are unmatched to anything you can get for this price.
I've been there with my parents for two days and it was perfect for us! very nice and comfortable, close to the metro station and really in the centre! you can go walking everywhere from the house! I really suggest it!:)
Even though Des is not in city of Athens she was always very responsive to emails and and all requests. Des'a mum met us at apartment and was a pleasure to talk to and very welcoming.
The appartment is in a perfect location in the middle of the old town with loads of bars and cafes in walking distance. The flat itself is lovely and the rooftop terrace is just great to relax or to work.
Des' Mother received me and showed me the appartment. What was great that she also bought some food for breakfast so that I had a great headstart in the morning. Overall I can really recommend this appartment with its central location and excellent standard. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The Des apartment is really nice, you have everything you need and you are near to everywhere. For us was just perfect. Living next to Agora was very exciting, just thinking about Socrates walking in the same area 2430 years ago… OMG!!!…
Georgina, Des mum, is very nice and welcoming host; she told us everything we need about the apartment and about Athens. She even left in the kitchen bread and orange juice for our breakfast!
The last day, we forgot a sweater in the apartment before leaving Athens and Georgina come to the apartment just for us. That was very nice, thank you again for that, and sorry again for bothering you because of the sweater. Nice people and nice apartment. We would definitely recommend!
On a passé 2 jours à Athènes et nous avons apprécié sa bonne localisation à deux pas du vieux centre et de Gazi.
La vue sur l'Acropole nous a mis tout de suite dans l'ambiance.
Appartement simple et propre.
Awesome apartment! Des's mother met us at the apartment and was so sweet. Great place
since the first minute that we arrived to the apartment the vacation was amazing- we got a kindly welcome with goods for nice breakfasts, the apartment is big (perfect for a couple) with the most incredible view from bed and balcony, and the location is amazing (most of the time we traveled in Psiri, cool taverns and cool shops, close to the archeological sites and to Exarchia).
in conclusion, the experience was as Des described it to me- fantastic!
looking forward to come again.
L'appartement est agréable mais très petit pour 4. Il y a cependant tout ce qu'il faut pour un court séjour. la situation dans la ville est intéressante car proche du site historique et des restaurants.
Nous avons été surpris car le balcon annoncé était vraiment petit, les photos sur le site avaient été certainement prises depuis une terrasse sur le toit à laquelle nous n'avons pas eu accès, c'est dommage.
Our stay in Athens and Des's apartment was great!!! Her sister and mother made us feel very welcome even at our late hour of arrival. The apartment is all about location. Everything is in walking distance. The tea, coffee and breakfast provided in the apartment were a delight to have in the mornings before we ventured out to explore this amazing city. All in all, the apartment was great value, it made us feel very homely, a great opportunity to find out more about the locals day to day lives. Would recommend it again!!!
