Bait and Switch?

  • 1 of 5

This was a frustrating experience. Upon arrival, we were told that our apartment wasn't available due to water issues. No problem, things like that happen. But we were put in an apartment lacking virtually all the amenities that led us to chose the requested apartment. No fireplace, no first night breakfast, no bathroom supplies, very very tiny kitchen, no dryer, just a wash machine. We were told by Panos and his mother that this was an upgrade and we wouldn't be charged extra - but when I pointed out that the apartment we were put in was on the VRBO site and listed at a lesser cost Panos said 1) the apartments are exactly the same - obviously not 2) they rent for the exact same price - mmmm, nope, not according to the website 3) we never supply breakfast - then maybe shouldn't list it as an amenity. The difference as about $40 euro, which is not a big deal at the end of the day, but nobody likes being cheated or lied to, it is distasteful and I recommend to future renters that you don't reward VRBO folks that pull this type of thing, look for another place.

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very clean, great A/C, on a quiet street while also very close walking distance to Thissio metro and great restaurants/cafes with beautiful Acropolis views. Monastiraki and Plaka districts are surprisingly close to walk to. Panos and his mom were quick to respond to all our questions. I also recommend using their dedicated taxi driver, Christos. Very friendly, reasonable and on-time to and from the airport. One small criticism is if people are sleeping on the pull-out couch the blinds are very light, there are no privacy blinds to minimize the morning sun. We were happy to stay in this area and would absolutely/100% stay here again.

Perfect Athens apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and was in the perfect location. One block to ancient agora and thisseos metro. 2 blocks to walking street that takes you to the Acropolis. There is a delicious bakery a few steps away. Our advice is to use the owners taxi driver, Chris. He is very pleasant, honest and reliable. We used him to and from the airport. We would stay here again!
