Our experience here was great. Manolis was very kind and welcoming. The location can't be beat - right next to the Acropolis Museum, a short walk from all the downtown sites.
The apartment was great, with the location being it's best feature. We were directly opposite the acropolis, and beside the new acropolis museum. Food and shopping was only a minute walk away, and it was a lovely area of Athens.
The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the air conditioner was a great addition in the hot Greek summer. The bathroom layout was interesting and a little challenging at times, but it did not at all reduce from the great time we had at Athens and in the apartment. Would definitely stay again
Great apartment, very conveniently located. Manolis was very quick to respond and extremely helpful in terms of booking taxis and local shopping. Highly recommend!
Manolis was extrmely gentle. Received us with wine, fresh water and fruits and let us do a late check in after midnight. Always with a smile on his face. His appartment is in the best place in Athens!
Manolis is great! extremely responsive via text/airbnb messaging platform. I didn't have a phone while in Greece but communicated with him via the airbnb app and he always responded within seconds/minutes.
Also, Manolis is very flexible! We were in Milos and wanted to head to athens a day early b/c the weather in Milos was not good. He was able to accommodate us with no problems.
The great thing about this apt is exactly what the listing says: the GREAT LOCATION. It is right across from the acropolis and right next to the new acropolis museum. It is in a safe, quiet neighborhood also. It was a 2 min walk from the Acropolis metro station which was great b/c we took that to/from the airport.
The cons: the shower/bathroom is all in one so it was a little strange to us. I didn't read the listing carefully before booking so it is my fault - but it was tough for us. We, unfortunately, left the apt early and booked at a nearby hotel b/c apt didn't fit our needs. However, Manolis was extremely kind and refunded us a half day.
Mr Manolis is very helpful and replies to emails almost instantaneously. There were several instances where I got his help to get me a Taxi and inform the driver of my destination (crucial, as not all greeks speak english). In addition, the location is awesome and within minutes away from the Acropolis Metro, Acropolis Museum as well as the south slop of the Acropolis. Breakfast is simple but wholesome, with yogurt, nuts and fruits. While the toilet is kinda small, in retrospect, the location of the apartment itself is already good value for the money paid.
Manolis apartment was simply perfect. The location coludn't be better, close to everywhere in Athens. If you go to Athens you should go there!
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! :)
