Notre réservation à Athènes
Bon accueil par la personne qui nous a reçus. Très bon suivi de notre réservation avec des réponses rapides à nos questions.
Nice apartment, but with some caveats
Whoever we corresponded with was knowledgeable and responsive. The apartment is very nicely decorated, with several working air conditioners, which is important in Athens during the summer. The apartment conformed to the listing in all ways except:
1) I was not sure who owned this apartment. I corresponded with someone named "Pavlos," but was greeted by another person, who told me the flat is owned by yet another person with different name. Hmm...
2) As the listing states, there is no fire alarm, but NOTE ALSO that if there were a fire and you left your keys in the apartment and the door shut behind you, you would not be able to get out of the building. That was scary. We got stuck in the lobby and had to mime with the one lone lady who actually lived in the building to have her go downstairs and let us out the front door. Because our keys were back in the now-locked apartment. This might be typical of how front doors work in Athens??
One last caveat: if you are offered a taxi booking (from the ferry/front the airport) by the listing owner, instead, use the BEAT app or negotiate a rate with the driver yourself. Our ride could've cost about 14 euros but the booked one was 25.
Nice and brief stay!
Dear guest, we are a team of people running this apartment, which means several people are taking care of every aspect of your wellbeing and any detail that may occur 24/7. This means that you don't have to meet the owner (why should you?) but you were met and greet and had all your questions answered by several different people that take care of you! The owner owns a building, we run a team of caring experts.
Yes, for security reasons, this is how typical front doors work in Greece. When you have a person welcoming you and be on the spot on Whatsapp 24/7, please ask and listen to their advice.
The taxi rides have different prices that come with different types of service: If the taxi driver is waiting for you right outside of your ferry no matter how long it takes you to get to him, and you don't have to wait at the queue with 100s other people and taxi drivers under the heat with your luggage, yes, the taxi service has a different price. Of course, when you book through your host, you know that the driver you booked is safe and the price is the one mentioned, in the same time the taxi driver you hired on the street or the port, well, not always :-)
Glad you had a nice experience overall, though!
