An Athens virgin, I didn't know what to look for, where to stay or what to expect. I booked this flat because it looked pleasant, central and reasonably priced and because the agency, Boutique Athens, had had a positive review through the Guardian. It turned out to be fabulous. The flat is a roomy artists study, quite literally an artist's studio. The walls are hung with paintings by the artist, a feast of beautiful images which I was told could not go on the website images because the artist likes to change them regularly. The layout is minimalist. The air con was top notch making the summer heat easily bearable. The position is extraordinary, next to what turned out to be the most exciting street in the area, full of restaurants bars live music (traditional and jazz). A short walk to Monaistiraki tube and to the acropolis. The team from Boutique Athens have a family feel about them, supported our stay and were extremely accommodating. This is one stay I would recommend to anyone.
