The Mighty Aphrodite Suite
|住所||Tsatsou, 10558 Athens, ギリシャ|
It's awesome! It's tasteful! It's romantic!
The room is large, with marble floors and a high ceiling. There is a little balcony that opens onto the (quiet) street with a beautiful view of the Anglican church on Filellinon St.
It is tastefully decorated with found objects and one or two items from my personal collection.
You also get the use of the kitchen / dining room and the library / sitting room on the ground floor.
For the moment, there is a fairly confortable sofabed only. The listing price more than makes up for the inconvenience :)
A few words about the neighborhood. We are in Plaka, the oldest part of Athens and one of the oldest continuously occupied neighborhoods in the world! Its all within walking distance: The metro, the ancient sites (right at the foot of the acropolis itself), the shopping district and Athens newest bars and places to eat!
I (John) am around for most of the day, and can always be contacted by email or phone in case you want some help or tips about the city.
Below is a list of all the services included in the price:
Weekly cleaning and linen service
Use of washing machine
So what are you waiting for - book now! ;)

The room is part of Alice Inn Athens. It's perfectly located in Plaka, with numerous restaurants and (roof top) bars close by. The must see's are also within walking distance. The room itself is nice and spacious. To quote John, 'big enough to host it's own bath room'. This will be his next winter project, as well as the bed. Because of that, The Mighty Aphrodite gets four stars for now. If the bath room and the bed are in place, I know what to recommend!
We had a wonderful time in Athens at the Alice Inn. It is perfectly located (just a few minutes from Syntagma Square) and John was the best host we could have asked for. He was always willing to help and we could ask him lots of questions.
To sum up: beautiful city, nice accommodation, lovely host, ... what do you want more? :-)
As a group of 9 of us we were lucky enough to rent out the whole townhouse, the only downside was that this was only for one night. The house itself is stunning & traditional, made all the more enchanting by the personal and creative touches that John has made. If you're looking to stay somewhere authentic, in a safe & pretty area then you couldn't pick anywhere better than here. John made us all feel extremely welcome as soon as our entourage of three taxis, 9 people and 10 suitcases arrived! There was fresh, cold watermelon waiting for us which hit the spot in the heat. Even though we only had a very short time in Athens, John gave us some helpful hints and suggestions of where to go which made our outing in Plaka & the Acropolis all the more worthwhile. It was a very short but sweet visit, I will recommend this to anyone that is travelling to Athens and I myself will hopefully visit again soon, for a little longer next time I hope.
The Betty Boop Suite in Athens, Plaka, was a wonderful place to stay! It was clean, beautifull and cozy. We really enjoided staying here and want to come back!!!!! John was a very nice host. Very helpfull, hospitable and reliable!!! I will come back as soon as possible!
great place to stay at! the house is situated at a vibrant and chill out area, with nice shops and restaurants nearby (we particular like a herbs and spices shore called aretha's), and just 5 mins walk to Syntacma (also a key station for metro and bus) and 10 mins to the Acropolis. the place itself is very nice and comfortable, with stylish and very witty decorations.
and as you can imagine john is a great host. he is very prepared for his guests and he knows the city inside out. it appears he just loves to help. highly recommended :)
Clean rooms, very convenient location .Most attractions within walking distance.
John was very friendly and helpful with advice.
We recommend this apartment .
John was a great host.
In the beautifull neo-classic house you immediatly feel at home. The house is decorated with all kinds of objects telling their own story and making this place feel like a home. A common living room and kitchen are at your disposal and the rooms are large, making them feel like your own appartment in athens instead of the usual generic hotel rooms. During your stay John will sometimes treat you with some delicious self made surprises depending on the season or inspiration and he's allways around to give you "insider" advise on the best places to visit or eat!
I greatly advise this place for your next stay athens. Located at 500m from the city center (syntagma) in the sympathetic and relaxed neigbourhood Plaka", you couldn't wish for a better location!
I hope i'll get the opportunity to come back!
In the meanwhile i wish all the best to our host, John!
