I had a wonderful experience in Athens and at a very short notice Sofia offered me to stay which I'm very grateful for as she was away! (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) were warm, kind and helpful. George who didn't speak English was hospitable and we had hours of conversation using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Translate which was absolutely delightful! Thank for being so patient with me and glad we have become friends. The apartment was as it is in the photos and on a hill. I was relieved I bought suitable footwear with me! Everything including the Acropolis and other ancients ruins was a short walking distance (10-15 minutes). Public transport was easy to get to, €1.20 one way and €4 for a day ticket used on the bus, tram or metro.

I had a very good stay at sofia's appartment. The room is cosy and clean, with a very comfortable bed and a orange tree in front of the balcony. The area is very nice, lovely and quiet, but around the corner you also find some restaurants, bars and shops. Sofia and her flatemates are very kind and helpful. It's the perfect stay for visiting amazing Athens :)

Sofia is an excellent host. She already told me that she wasn't in Athens when I arrived, but she managed perfectly with her roommate to welcome and care in case of any need. The apartment is clean, bright, my room with a nice small balcony. The neighborhood is quiet, sunny, at a 10 min walk from Acropolis and well connected to underground. I'd definitely recommend Sofia and her apartment.

My friend and I received a lovely welcome in the appartment of Sofia. we already felt home. The place hitself is amazingly situated, in a small street full of orange trees, near all the places you should visit here in Athens. Sofia and her roommates were adorable, helpful and gave us plenty of nice advice ! (Thank you again to have lead us to Agistri !) We truly enjoyed our week there and I higly recommand to everyone to come there !

Sofia's appartment is very well located in Athens: quiet area, and you can access to most of the "Athens places to go" only by walking throught small streets. The appartment itself is very cosy, clean, and Sofia was a very nice host. She gave us useful advices about Athens and Greece. Moreover, tea is very good. Highly recommanded!

We had a very good time at Sofia's place! It was spacious and clean and perfectly located for exploring the Akropolis and other Athens neighborhoods. I can highly recommend Sofia's place to future Athens travelers!

Sofia's apartment is a very nice place located close to the two attractions a turist cannot miss in athens: the acropolis and the plaka. The apartment itself is cozy and equiped with everything you may need, just a little bit noisy. we could not meet her, unfortunately she was not in town. However, her lovely mother wellcomed us. we definitely recommend sofia's place for a perfect short stay in Athens.
