Incredible plaka location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our two night stay at tax's apartment. The location can not be beat -- centrally located yet quiet. The apartment itself was well designed and thought out. Numerous little touches, umbrellas, extra blankets were greatly appreciated. During a hot Athens summer, the apartment was cool and comfortable. Tax was kind and responsive--especially as we were dealing with being pickpocketed on the metro. Highly recommend.

Amazing experience! Right in the heart of Athens!

  • 5 of 5

Tax is an amazing host!! He gave us really precise directions on how to get to his place, personally met us and directed us to his apartment, and gave us tips as well as showed us on a map how to get to historical sites in Athens. We were really pleased and amazed at how close everything was to his place. Just a few step Los from amazing historical sites, shopping, restaurants and the train. It was really easy to get around and really easy to find everything we wanted to see.

Beautiful apartment, good location

  • 5 of 5

Tax was an amazing host, who definitely deserves the Superhost badge. Even before arriving in Greece, he gave us a brief transportation guide on getting to his apartment. He also informed us about the strike that was going to happen and gave us information on how to get around without public transportation. On the day of check in, he suggested meeting at a prominent landmark which was extremely thoughtful of him. We were also very pleased by his detailed tips of things to do and places to eat in the area. The apartment was neat, tidy and homey, exactly as shown in the pictures. Towels and toiletries were also provided. The apartment is in an excellent location, within walking distance to main attractions and many cafes/restaurants. We felt like it was a safe and quiet neighbourhood. During our stay, Tax informed us about another strike that would affect the port authorities and advised us to check if our ferries to the other islands would be affected. He did everything to ensure that we were well informed about the situation and suggested alternatives for us to get to where we had to go. He was very understanding, even allowing us a very late check out, as we had to alter our plans at the last minute due to the strikes. He is the perfect host, the best I have ever had the pleasure to meet in all the accommodations I have stayed in. Do not hesitate to book an accommodation from him!

The flat is located in Plaka, the heart of ancient Athens, on a cobbled pedestrian street, 5 minutes from Syntagma Square and metro (subway) station, 10 m walk to the Acropolis and the rest of the surrounding antiquities, many restaurants of all kinds, street cafes and bars; relaxed and joyful atmosphere, yet very decent area, and totally safe.
