This is a cozy 2-bedroom - 6 floor - 72m2 - PENTHOUSE with a great 30m2 BALCONY (10x3m).
Located in the very inner center circle of Athens, offers easy access to the Metro in 40m and 35 bus and trolley bus lines in 80m.
Appartement parfait pour une petite famille de deux enfants. Nikos nous a réservé un très bon accueil avec les bons conseils. Merci
Thank you dears Mari & Guillaume. A little comment: Apartment-Acropolis 35' walking distance with 2 little children, stopping every other step to see something new sounds normal. Other guests have done the same distance in just the half time (without children). The distance is about 1000m.
Aside from being a nice guy who gave us some good pointers upon settling in at our apartment in Victoria, there were a few things about Nikos: 1) He appeared to be sort of disoriented in the beginning... Was late, directed us towards the wrong apartment, picked up his phone whil…
Dear Inderpal, I'd like to thank you for recognizing that the apartment was nice, clean and as described in my ad, that I am a "nice guy" (...!!) as well as I took some time to explain the apartment's and area's amenities (no surprises here as this is what I always do it). Even if I find the whole thing ridiculous I'll take some time to give my point of view on the issues you mention. I understand that it took you time to write this…book and I feel obliged to return the curtesy: 1) As I let many apartments in the area, yes I made a (human) mistake and lead you to the wrong apartment. The last 500 times I didn’t make this a mistake…!! The right apartment was just at the other corner of the block. It took us 1 minute to change. Am I disoriented in your vocabulary? I wasn't late at all. We both arrived at the same time, I stopped my car in front of you and asked you to wait a minute while I was looking to park. 2) The question always made from my guests on arrival is where they could find a nice local and genuine Greek restaurant. You made the same question and I gave you 4 restaurants. Two days later while I'm having lunch in one of them, you and your friends, all of a sudden, appear there telling me that you are starving. As I had finished my lunch, I sat with you and, answering to your question on the menu, I recommended a few of my favorite courses. It's you and your other 3 friends who decided which ones to order no matter if you followed my recommendations or not. Correct me if I'm wrong but the prices were in the catalogue (catalogue in English language…!!) ... or not?? Me, to pay for your lunch? I wonder why such a thing crossed your mind, or it would be convenient to you if I did... (you were on a budget as you said). I didn’t invite you for lunch, you found me there, remember? In your "culture" (your words), whoever is being polite with you is obliged to pay your lunch..??? 3) Athens is a very safe city, except of a few pick-pockets in the Metro we almost have zero criminality. Of course you were OK living there, as they were OK all the other guests of mine who have stayed in my apartments in the area. Glad to hear saying that. Your assumptions are not based on facts but in your imagination since I don’t believe your stories about …cabbies’ head shaking. 4) Whoever takes a look in (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps and counts the distances (there is a tool for this thanks to (Hidden by Airbnb) ) is able to see that you either lie, or in your "culture" you have different measurements to count the distances (I’ll not mention your origin in order to avoid insulting other innocent people from your country). The Historical center starts right after Omonia square, in about 700-800m from the apartment's door, that is about 10' walking. The National Archaeological Museum, once you mention it, one of the must see in Athens, is in just 150m from the door (2-3 minutes). (Hidden by Airbnb) maps don't lie, but you do. Cabs: an average taxi fare in the central Athens is 4-5 EUR for 4 passengers, when 4 tickets by the metro or bus is (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) EUR. So, why you mention the use of taxis as a downside? This is the smartest and cheapest way for 4 people to move in this city. Conclusion: I find you very absolute and strict for a 24 years old young man. To me this shows inexperience of the world. Life will soon teach you that things are not only white or black, not to say that most of the times all colors are on the table. You should be more open-minded. I don't excuse your comments in this review, your intention is obvious to me even if I can't understand why. I regret that in MY REVIEW, I recommended you to the future airbnb hosts. If I had read your review I would have warned them to be very careful with you since they wouldn't know what to do (or not do) in order to protect themselves from your bitter tongue. We have only met twice, once on arrival (when everything was OK as you say) and the second time by luck in the restaurant two days later. I assume that it was then that you decided to "burn" me with your review. I'm glad because you yourself mentioned the reason (...the bill of course that I didn't pay...sorry about it..!!). Hopefully I have many other reviews written by people from of other "cultures". You are just a “statistic exception” to verify the rule. Nikos
