It was a great accomodation, with the garden as extra attraction. Close to metro to reach the center of Athens, and really quite for the night.
Very friendly people, helpful, good English. And they made really nice food!
Excellent hosts. They looked after us as we were their family members. Nice breakfast. Good garden. Close to metro. A bit far from airport, but no problem as we had a car. Will stay again.
Erg rustige lokatie in een buitenwijk van Athene, vlakbij de metro en diverse buslijnen. Ze hebben meerdere kamers. Wij verbleven in een kleine kamer in het souterain. Vanuit die kamer loop je direct de tuin in. Alles is erg schoon en netjes. Stelios en Maika zijn bijzonder behulpzaam in alles.
Eenvoudig verblijf bij vriendelijke mensen. Lakbij een metrostation voor bezoek aan Athene en gezellige restaurants in de omgeving.
Stelios and Maika were very kind and generous. They invited me to sit with them and to visit. They have a lovely garden with a Bergamot tree. If you are lucky they might even share some of their homemade specialties with you.
They were also kind enough to give me a lift with my luggage which was wonderful after a long day of traveling.
If you decide to join them for a meal be prepared to eat. They are very generous their portions.
I would be glad to visit with them again.
Maika & Stellios were very friendly and easy going hosters, we felt very welcome. The rooms were clean and comfortable, we had our privacy. We did get a lot of helpful advices from Stellios and Maika made very tasty greek dinner for us. We enjoyed it every time.
All in all we had a very relaxing holiday.
