Amazing time in athens
We had a fantastic stay in athens. The accommodation was very comfortable and we were met by Lia who was very friendly and helpful and definitely a great asset for Boutique athens.
She showed us around the local area and pointed out the best bars/restaurants which came in very helpful for our stay.
We highly recommend the use of their taxi driver who made everything very easy and even pointed out local attractions on the way to the apartment.
Thanks heaps and see you next time!

Enjoy your travels.

We highly reccomend this apartment!
This is a beautiful apartment in a great location. Walking distance to the Plaka and other main attractions but far enough away so you don't feel as if you're in a tourist trap. It is very well equiped but with so many restaurants and cafes nearby we didn't use the kitchen much. We stayed in winter (and it was lovely and warm) but would love to come back in summer to make use of the huge balcony. In spite of arriving late at night we were met at the apartment by Lia who made us feel very welcome and set the scene for the continuing Greek hospitality. I would also reccomend making use of their taxi driver who collected us from the airport.

10 minutes walk to "everything".
We had a very pleasent stay in athen and in our apartment.
It was very good equipped, washing machine, dish wash machine to mention some... The terrasse was excellent with nice view to acropolice (at least from one corner of the terrasse and from the small kitchen-terrasse. And it was really big. Watch out for the glass door out to the terrasse, it was so well cleaned that it looked like it was no door at all. We had some small accidents with that door , but of course not a big problem. We were on Europs biggest indoor meat marked (so we heard), Acropolice, Agora, Zevs temple, and much more. We ate a lot of very nice food, greek salad and tzaziki every day with lamb and goat meat. I will reccomand this appartment absolutely.

Our Short athens Stay
Stayed at MR1 for only 2 nights (not long enough). Costas met us on arrival, showed us around the apartment then took us on a tour of the neighbouring area which was very helpful. Photos of the apartment don't lie, it is that good. Was on the 6th floor with great view of the acropolis. Enjoyed our stay in athens. (PS: guests should know that the elevator is only suitable for 3 adults of average weight) Costas also arranged transfers to and from the airport which was a great help during the public transport and taxi strikes. Thank you.
We got to know the athens of the locals
Our hosts booked a taxi for us and met us at the apartment, with an invite to go on a walking tour of the vicinity after we'd settled in. We loved the comfortable, minimalistic interior decoration and had everything we needed - including the modern essential, WiFi! Dean is a gracious host - giving us some entertaining info of life in the area and introducing us to the owners of some of the restaurants/coffee shops where we would get good service. A lunch in a Greek mama's kitchen was one of the most memorable experiences - fortunately she had a guest who could speak English and who could give inside impressions on the Greek news of the day. We can definitely recommend Boutique athens.
This trip was to celebrate my 60th birthday, and it couldn't have been more perfect! Dean was a perfect host and he and Maria made sure I was oriented to the area and to the subway! They also confirmed my trips and pickup points, and arranged a driver for a two day trip throughout the Peloponnese. I highly recommend the driver -- Michalis Ferentinos -- very reliable, very safe driver. He can be reached at [--].
The apartment was lovely and better than described. There was freshly ground Greek coffee ready, along with fresh milk and water.
For those concerned about safety: I found athens to be very safe (and why not? there were police on every corner!). I traveled the streets alone, and often late at night, and never had a problem, although as always you should keep your purse zipped up and hold close as you would in any large city.
Athens was a great place to visit, and a great base for traveling to some of the other nearby historic areas. I highly recommend any of Mr. Hewett's properties at Boutique athens; they are all well-maintained and allow you to live among the locals instead of a regular hotel environment.

Thank you so much for the review.
We really enjoyed having you here and we hope you make good your promise and return some day.
The staff at the street cafe want me to say hi to you...and say "come back to greece!!"
I am so glad you had a great time. You are an intrepid and interesting lady. I hope we keep hosting people like you.

Great flat ideally located
The flat is great, all new. Fantastic terrace with amazing views of the city and acropolis. Location is perfect, there are many good places (restaurants, bars, musems) in the area. We received a warm welcome from the owners who took the time to take us around and show us the area. The perfect place to enjoy athens!
wonderful appartment, nice views
we had a lovely weekend.
And we very much appreciate that the owner came with us for a short tour showing the best places to eat and drink.
He was lovely and very supportive with whis recommendations.
