We stayed here over the Christmas holidays. The apartment was very convenient to stores, a bakery and unfortunately a pharmacy that was needed. I had a concern it would be cold, but there was not only a AC/Heater combination in the living/dining room area, but also space heaters had been placed in each of the two bedrooms. Although advertised as only one bathroom, there was actually a separate loo as well. The kitchen had all appliances that were needed and a decent stock of basics like dish soap, paper towels, oil, salt, tea etc... The washer worked fine and air drying was easy out on the balcony -- lots of sun. The location was perfectly centralized for leaving on all our visits to family, and was close enough to the city center to take advantage of the Christmas atmosphere in Syntagma Square and the Plaka. The parking space was wonderful to have given the tight parking availability in the immediate area and we had very good Wi-Fi access during the whole stay. This was our first try with Homeaway in Athens, and I think we will be trying to book this apartment on all our annual trips to Athens to come!
This apartment could not possibly have a better location. Overlooking Plaka's main one-lane street, it's literally a two minute walk to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, to the best restaurants in the area (Psaro's), or to the crosswalk for The Temple of Olympian Zeus. It's also only about 15 minutes to Monastiraki and Syntagma Squares. The kitchen window looks up at the Acropolis and the front balcony is so charming.
The apartment itself has two dedicated bedrooms (one with bunks), of which the master is really excellent. The family room (in the American sense) is actually a third bedroom with a convertible sofa, but it feels like a bedroom. The kitchen is tiny and, in fact, so small that we didn't even bother to use it. However, it would be fine for storing milk, OJ, cereal, eggs, etc. Don't plan on cooking Thanksgiving dinner in it though. For a family of 3 or 4, the place is spot on.
George was a superb landlord: very responsive and he also arranged a very good airport transfer for us (E$70 each way). It's a fair price and a great place.
