The apartment was clean and very spacious. The location is honestly unmatched - literally steps from the Acropolis. We spent a lot of time on the porch just looking out at the view. There are 100's of restaurants at the doorstep. We have done a lot of traveling all throughout Europe and this was hands down one of our top stays!
