Owner Supplied Testimonials
The apartment is as stated 5-7 minutes walk from the metro station. On arrival we were met by Manos and his house keeper. We were welcomed with a hamper of treats, which were delicous. The apartment was clean tidy and homely. It had every modern appliance you could need. The apartment is excellent value for money. And is in a quiet location. We would recommend it to anyone. Manos was extremely helpful on all aspects of our stay and very knowledgeable of the area. And although we failed in our mission on our this visit to Athens, our second visit was a complete success, but unforunatley Manos`s apartments were fully booked for the week we wanted so we had to to stay elsewhere.
We had a very comfortable stay in Apartment no 2 and would stay again!
The locatity was safe, the metro was nearby and it was easy to get to monuments and museums. The local shop keepers were delightful and there is a great hairdressers next door!
Considering the hard economic times that Greece is currently experiencing, we found the Athenians to be very kind, charming and warm hearted.
We will be back and hope to stay in the apartment again!
"Cet appartement permet un excellent sÃ©jour Ã AthÃ¨nes. Il se trouve Ã proximitÃ© d''un nombre important de moyens de transports urbains (mÃ©tro, trolley, bus) permettant de gagner en quelques minutes la place Syntagma et tous les sites. Il est Ã proximitÃ© du mÃ©tro arrivant de l''aÃ©roport. L''Ã©quipement est parfait (avec clim!) et l''environnement trÃ¨s plaisant (balcon avec table et fauteuils, cour intÃ©rieure d''immeuble pleine de verdure...) dans un immeuble "bourgeios et trÃ¨s calme (sur le pallier se trouve un mÃ©decin!). Le propriÃ©taire habite dans l''immeuble et assure un accueil plein de charme, offrant plans et indications pratiques diverses et une grande disponibilitÃ© en cas de souci. Nombreux commerces Ã proximitÃ© dont au moins deux importants supermarchÃ©s. Une location Ã recommander."
My wife and I had great stay in the Arkadias II apartment. The furniture, accessories and amenities was adequate - and the neighbourhood was just what we looked for: The chance to live among everyday Athens life. And still we could get to center of Athens in only a few minutes.
The only thing we were not so happy about was the mattres that were a bit soft for our taste - but then we just used the sleeping couch in the living room.
Loveable Experience 2
Review Submitted: November 13, 2010 Date of Stay: August 2010
I stayed in Loveable Experience 2 with 3 other adults. Two of us slept in the bedroom and 2 on the pullout couch. We were very comfortable. The apartment is well furnished and clean.
My trip to Athens was in August and the weather was very hot. The air conditioning worked great.
The apartment has a washing machine, but no dryer. We were able to hang clothes on a clothesline to dry. There is a hair dryer supplied.
We walked to the metro, about 10 minutes. I felt very safe in this neighborhood. There are grocery stores very close also.
I would recommend staying here, especially when going to see the Acropolis,Plaka, museums, etc.
The owner was so friendly and helpful - not intruding on our privacy but happily and quickly responding to requests for any information regarding Athens. The apartment was clean and conveniently located. Definitely better than staying in a hotel!
Quiet non threatening location , 4 Metro stops from the city centre (approx 10 mins). The second floor flat was very clean, air conditioned in the lounge and bedroom and was totally adequate for the two of us. The fluent English speaking owner was very helpful but not intrusive and he provided useful local maps for shops, restuarants etc. All in all certainly worth considering if you want to see the sights of Athens and enjoy a peaceful night afterwards unlike last year's Barcelona city centre flat where the partying went on until 3 AM and the bin emptying started at 5 AM. You may like to consider a meal at the Strofi Taverna south of the Acropolis its rooftop dining terrace has a marvellous view of the Parthenon (around 25 - 30 Euros each).
We had a great time in Athens! The place is clean and well-equipped to make you feel like home away from home, having a washing machine in the apartment helped a lot since I believe in packing light. It is walking distance to the bus and Metro station and the neighborhood is close to shops and grocery stores. The owner (Manos) provided us with a lot of help on tourist and ferry information. The country has so many amazing sites and the people are so very helpful with the tourists. Highly recommend this place. There is an elevator in the building but if you use a walker or wheelcahir, there are some steps before you get to the elevator.
