Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

The booking of this apartment was well organized and very simple through Boutique Athens. The apartment was large and had beautiful views. It was clean and well furnished. We were meet at the apartment by one of the Boutique Athens staff and he took us on a walking trip around the neighborhood which was very helpful. One of the women in our apartment was cold in bed and an extra duvet was brought around. All very good experiences.

Lovely apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

3 of my friends and I travelled to Athens recently and rented this flat. It was so lovely! Really spacious with a huge outdoor space that had spectacular views of the Acropolis. The beds were all really comfortable too and we had all mod-cons, save a washing machine in Greek that we weren't quite sure about and a sort of dribbly shower, but that's being super picky. The apartment is just a short walking distance from all the major attractions in Athens and the area seemed safe, with lots of restaurants and cafes very nearby.

I think the massive up though was Boutique Athens who managed the place. We actually rented a smaller place but on arrival there was no electricity. These things just happen, but Boutique Athens were so quick to find us a (much better) alternative and took the time then to show us around the area and to get us orientated for our visit. This was so helpful and much appreciated.

So all in all, I'm giving the flat an 8 out of 10 and Boutique Athens a 10 out of 10. I really recommend them.

Couldn't have been better!

Picked up at the airport, met at the apartment, given a local tour! Our welcome and introduction to Athens was fabulous. The apartment is modern, spacious, clean and has everything you need. The huge verandah with its magical view is something special. We had a marvelous stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Our short Athens stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at MR1 for only 2 nights (not long enough). Costas met us on arrival, showed us around the apartment then took us on a tour of the neighbouring area which was very helpful. Photos of the apartment don't lie, it is that good. Was on the 6th floor with great view of the Acropolis. Enjoyed our stay in Athens. (PS: guests should know that the elevator is only suitable for 3 adults of average weight) Costas also arranged transfers to and from the airport which was a great help during the public transport and taxi strikes. Thank you.

Luxury appartment in Athens Center

  • 5 of 5

Right In the center of Athens, near Monastiraki.

It was possible to visit all the sites without car, by foot essentially, but also by underground or by bus...

Efficient and necessary Air conditionning system.

Very warm and helpful welcome at our arrival.

A very kind help to find a car to rent for the rest of our trip in Greece.

Excellent souvenir.

Great place ideally located

  • 5 of 5

The flat is great, all new. Fantastic terrace with amazing views of the city and Acropolis. Location is perfect, there are many good places (restaurants, bars, musems) in the area. We received a warm welcome from the owners who took the time to take us around and show us the area. The perfect place to enjoy Athens!
