Very nice apartment on a quiet side street, very nicely located in Plaka for easy access to shops, food and of course the Acropolis/surrounding sites. Kostis provided excellent recommendations for sightseeing as well as food which we found very helpful. The unit had everything we needed plus Kostis even had the place stocked with bottled water, juices, bread and cookies which were great bonuses. I definitely recommend staying here if you are looking to check out the Acropolis area for a day or two.

Now we know the reason why Kostis is a Superhost. He was a unbelievable host. Ready to every question, giving us a lot of tips and keeps in touch all time long on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or personally. It was a great experience to stay in Kostis's apartment. It has an amazing location. Close to every sightseeings of Athen's and the main Metro lines (Acropolis and Syntagma). The apartment has a good size to a family of 3 or 4, but you won't stay in apartment much time, just to sleep, because you have a lot of things to do in this amazing city. The apartment is clean and has everything you need in the kitchen. Kostis let us a bunch of food and beverages for the breakfast (for all days). Close to apartment you can find a mini-market, and, for sure, a lot of delicious restaurants. So you are in Plaka! Thank you Kostis me and my family hope to come back again and stays in your wonderful apartment. PS. Ask Kostis to make a tour to Poseidon's Temple and watch the most incredible sunset ever, the price is much better than a touristic bus or taxi.

Kostis has a modern, well furnished and secure accommodation in the heart of Plaka full of numerous tavernas and shops. A ten minute walk to the Acropolis and museum. You are between Acropolis and Syntagma metro stations and taxis are easily accessed. We'd recommend eating at Saita tavern at the end of the street for well priced authentic Greek food. Kostis had the fridge full of drinks and had even bread, jams etc for breakfast. Our first airbnb and a great experience. Will be back.
