Location, location, location! Quiet and pedestrian only street next door to the fabulous museum. We walked everywhere and also very close to metro. Very small micro-apartment better suited to a couple probably but we managed ok as a couple with teenager. The photos give the impression of a bigger space. Carpet and couch and bathroom are a bit shabby (and bathroom setup awkward) but given the location, we didn't care. Manolis set us up with wine, fresh fruit and chocolate which was lovely and much appreciated.
Great place - thank you Manolis!
Absolutely fabulous location and the apartment suited us fine. Manolis made it all very easy and we hope to be back!
We've had a very enjoyable stay at this cozy little apartment. The location is PERFECT. Right beside the Acropolis museum, and right opposite the Acropolis itself, we've the pleasure of the lovely night view of the Acropolis every night!
It is also a 2 mins walk from many nice cafes and restaurants, and also the old Plaka streets. Everything is just right around the corner, we could get around so easily. Only needed to take the Metro once!
We were able to cover all the 'must-see' historical & tourist sites in just 2 days! And with another 2 days to spare and wander around the city and relax. Manolis also kindly left a folder with a compilation of many food & other recommendations. It comes complete with maps as well. Thanks to that, we were able to get around very easily - and found one of the best bakery with freshly baked bread for breakfast every morning!
The apartment was very clean, cozy and very comfortable. We were greeted by a bottle of wine, some fresh fruits and some food in the fridge too! We checked in at night after a long day and it was such a welcoming sight. The bathroom was small as mentioned by many others - but it was sufficient for us. There was hot water and it was clean. It was a bit buzzy at night - given that it is one of the most romantic and lively street around Athens, ut it quiets down after about 11pm, and we were able to sleep well on all nights. The bed was basic, but comfortable enough. There is also a comfortable couch outside in the living where we read, listen to music and took lil naps while resting our tired feet after the long walks.
Would definitely recommend for anyone considering this place to grab it quickly before someone else book it! Do check out the street musicians around the corner - we've found a hidden gem! :)
The location of Manolis's apartment is extraordinarily good, and the rental fee represents extremely good value. The building is in the center of Athens on a quiet pedestrian street at the foot of the Acropolis and only a short walk from the bustling cafes and restaurants of Plaka. Manolis is an extremely hospitable host who goes out of his way to please guests and dispense helpful advice. It was thoughtful of him to provide a bowl of fruit, bottle of wine, and food items in the refrigerator. The shower is not quite what American guests would expect, but it is perfectly adequate. I recommend this rental very highly and would definitely return when I next visit Athens.
Manolis were waiting for us with wine and fruit so the welcome was just perfect and we felt at home right away. It is really a perfect location with Acropolis on the one side and the Acropolis museum to the other side! The apartment is nice and cosy and we could not have asked for more - and Manolis is just the perfect host. My wife and I had a perfect stay in Greece!
Manolis was a perfect host! Prior to the trip, he communicated with me regularly and in a timely fashion which left me with a feeling of trust and security. We arranged to meet in order to get into the apartment and found it to be very clean and comfortable. In addition, he had left us with some fresh fruit and some items in the refrigerator. The location is amazing - convenient, safe and with stunning views of the acropolis. Could not have asked for a better situation!!! Also, Manolis arranged for a taxi to get to the airport for an early morning flight. Thank you Manolis!!!!!
Location location location!!
The apartment was clean. It looks somewhat like the photos. The carpets were stained and the couch now has a bedspread over it. But it was clean and in the hub of it all. Bathroom was super small with no separation of bathroom/shower (I wasn't used to that). The connection and communication between renter and I was easy! He even left me some fruit and yogurt. Great when your jet lagged.
Outstanding location!!! Clean apartment, amenities as listed, and Manolis was a friendly and accommodating host.
Would definitely recommend this place!
Could not have asked for a better location. Literally at the foot of the Acropolis and right next door to the Acropolis Museum. Everything provided in the room was fantastic, clean, and well maintained. The shower is a bit small and uses the same floor as the sink. Manolis was a very accommodating host and along with a very well put together guide for local restaurants and activities, also provided food and drinks. Would definitely recommend staying here in Athens!
We had just 2 short days in Athens and this apartment was ideal. It is quiet even though it is in a great location. Manolis was a very nice host, we couldn't ask for a better experience.
