This place was perfect was us! Danae was very helpful and replied quickly to all my questions even though we were in completely opposite timezones (I am from NZ) she arranged a pickup at the airport, we got to check in earlier, she suggested great places to eat and was very friendly and bubbly. The apartment was in a great location, quiet enough but also a short walk to cafes, restaurants and the Acropolis! We were sad to leave and had spent two nights here before heading to Santorini. It’s a perfect size for a couple and a very comfortable and homely feel. Would definitely stay here again!!

We apreciate a lot our short stay in Ilias & Danae’s apartment. It has an exellent location in the very center but also being in a quit area. Apartment is very clean and well equipped. We had maps and guides at the property and we appreciated very much the recommendations for restaurants, bars and shops we received from the hosts. Ilias & Danae were extremely nice and helpful hosts, always responding quick to our questions and making a nice stay for us.

Such an amazing hosts, Ilias and Danae were very care during all the stay. At Check in, they left a bottle of wine, some Greek sweet treats, sodas and juice at the fridge for us. If you wanna wash your clothes, they provide you soap and softner. We had a little issue with the keys (we left then inside the apt.) and they solved it right away. The neighborhood is very centric, you can walk to the main atractions in the city, between 5-20 min max. If you don't, an Uber is very convinient for 3-5 €. Finally, Ilias and Danae gave us very good tips to go out for Dinner and Drinks. We would definitly stay there again.

Such a fantastic location for all the main archaeological sites ...5 mins from Acropolis entrance on foot and new acropolis museum plus a pleasant neighbourhood. Only 20 mins thru shopping precincts to syntagma , benaki, dept store and b and m foundation too. Hosts are super friendly and check in was uber efficient. Large fridge freezer in apartment. Big basket of tourist info and well written guide books of Greece and Athens. Apartment was well stocked especially Bathroom.

This was a perfect place to stay for us. The size of the apartment was perfect. We had just enough room to get comfortable with all of our luggage. The kitchen was nice, although we did not use it much since we were touring Athens but the kitchen was a small but good size. The bathrooms was cute. Took a little bit of time for the water to heat up first but when it did it was wonderfully hot and comfortable. The bedroom was a nice size and we slept comfortably! All in all, the place was really great and Danae was such an amazing host.
