Interaction with guests

I can offer help if I am in Athens, but often I am away and could refer the guests to friends who may advise on areas of interest or urgent needs.

Other things to note

We had an ok time - location was perfect; hosts were great communicators and have plenty of detailed advice during our stay including how to get there from airport. Place was clean and we were provided plenty of linen. However, the apartment but was quite dark and awkward living space. They had left a whole lot wet towel to dry in the living room and when we checked in it had quite an unpleasant oudor. Living room had no natural light and air con wasn't working so got quite hot and relied on air con from rooms. The rooms had windows but lots of street noise even on weekday nights as lots of restaurants downstairs. Wifi also didn't work 2 out of 3 days and we couldn't fix it even though we had instructions to help. Very cheap so I guess you get what you pay for.

Response from Theodore & Reshma:
Sorry for the inconvenience, the air conditioner that was broken has been replaced since I returned to Greece a few days ago. Also the wifi problem has been solved... old wiring left the modem inaccessible to the phone line to produce the wifi signal... now it is corrected. When there are guests coming and going after one day it is difficult to get the linens dry before the new guest arrives. This may have been the reason for the damp odor? WE do our best and always want to improve and make you more comfortable.

If you want to explore Athenes on a budget its a great base. Not luxurious but priced very (URL HIDDEN) host, so well recommended. And as far as noise goes, I know the city very well. Given the location its actually pretty quiet...

Host gave lots of information beforehand on how to get there from airport which was very straightforward. Flat cosy but fine for a couple, no natural light in living room or kitchen. It is very central and an excellent base. Because of this though there was some late night noise from revellers and early morning noise from vans delivering to local businesses but that comes with the territory. Bring ear plugs if light sleeper. It felt a very safe location, clean and is fantastic for exploring Athens. Within walking distance of most sites. Surrounded by restaurants and bars. Recommend the Grecos Project around the corner. Great lunch special. Decent supermarket 5 mins walk away. Couldn't get on the Wi-Fi but believe that is now sorted. Electric arrangements are interesting. Window blinds need sorting. Kitchen is a little basic but recommend you eat out anyway.

Response from Theodore & Reshma:
I do apologize for the wifi... we had no guests for two months as it was slow season and i was also out of the country for that time, so the bill was not paid on time. You graciously mentioned that it was not a major inconvenience as there are many internet cafes nearby, but please forgive me for this lapse. I have now confirmed the way to pay the bill from abroad and do not foresee this problem again for future guests. I usually eat out myself and have plans to upgrade the windows and sound proofing in the future, when the budget allows.

Very happy with our stay in Theodore's apartment - -accurate description, good deatils on the listing. Theodore very helpful - but happy enogh to slip away so we could settle in as well. We'd thoroughly recommend this option to everyone - it suited us perfectly.

The apartment was very simple but this was fine for us given that we were only there for 2 nights. Having somewhere to cook a bit and to sit and eat breakfast was great. The situation is absolutely fantastic - could not be more central and convenient. Only a few mins from the airport bus stop on Syntagma Square and we were able to walk to the Acropolis. The only problem we had was the arrangement for us to collect the keys - nobody turned up and we had to phone the USA to try to organise.
