Our family of four (including our two daughters aged 11 & 13) stayed two nights in Appt #4 last week (July 10 & 11 2014). Everything was great. We actually rang and spoke to Fotini before leaving Australia, and she was very clear and patient in describing the location and style of accommodation. We booked and paid in advance, and also arranged a taxi pickup from the airport at a reduced rate.
Spiros greeted us at the apartments, and spent about 20 mins going through everything in the apartment, the garden, and gave us a small bag of washing powder so we could use the shared washing machine. He then spent a further 20 mins writing on a map what to see, how to get there, where to eat locally, etc. He was really lovely. Fotini backed this up the next day with further little tips for the local area, like how to get into the back of the Olympic Stadium for a fantastic view for free! We felt genuinely looked after.
The apartment itself (#4) was very clean, secure, quiet, spacious (one big room with two comfy double beds), and well equipped, inc effective air con, ceiling fans, and very good wifi. We notice that other reviews have used the word "oasis", and we would agree with this. Athens Green is tucked in behind the Olympic Stadium, so it was just out of the crowds, but all the main sites were easily accessible by walking, or (when the grown ups were tired out!) a 3,50 Euro taxi ride home! A supermarket, cafes, bank, bakeries and so on are just around the corner.
Thanks so much Fotini and Spiros, will definitely stay with you again on our return to Athens.
