Philip is a nice guy, very friendly, and the place is well-located. That being said, we had some issues that make it hard to recommend. First, Philip was not very professional. We arrived at our established time, noon, and the apartment was not ready for us. We waited an hour while Philip cleaned. Similarly, we scheduled our check out for 8:30am and Philip never arrived. In the end (after waiting more than half an hour), we had to simply leave the keys on the desk and go, leaving the front door of the building unlocked because otherwise, we'd miss an appointment and/or be late to the airport. We sent a message explaining, but never heard a response. During our stay, we got an email asking if Philip could come by the apartment while we weren't there to pick up his swimsuit. I appreciated that he asked before doing it, but again, it was not very professional to enter the apartment during our stay. It set kind of a weird tone. Second, there were two problems with the space. Most seriously, the building's elevator is missing its door, so it is really unsafe. If you really depend on having or using the elevator, this is the wrong listing for you. Less seriously, the apartment has no fan (in Philip's defense, the listing doesn't claim to have one). When we were in Athens, temperatures peaked around 110F/43C, so we basically couldn't sleep. Again, the listing doesn't misrepresent this aspect, but it's something to consider when planning your trip.
Philip and Martina were very sweet and cordial hosts. We stayed at their house for 2 days, twice in 15 days. They guided us from the airport to the metro station and picked us up from the station. They also helped us with the nearby sightseeing locations and places to visit in Athens. During our second visit, we returned to Athens at 2.30AM and Philip was there to give us the keys and basic necessities. The house is as described in the listing description, clean and tidy. Most of the touristic attraction places are located very close to Philip's house. Acropolis, Monasthiraki, Plaka, Syntagma square, Gazi Technopolis - everything is reachable within 10-15 mins walk from the house. The house is also well connected by public transport - Metro and Bus. Philip and Martina were very kind to walk with us to the Metro station while coming back as well. We would definitely stay at their place again if we were to visit Athens again and recommend their house to anyone who is planning to visit Athens.
