This was my first AirB&B experience and I must admit I was a bit hesitant since I felt a hotel for my 14 day work -travel trip to Kifissia Greece would be safer for me since I was be traveling alone. Nothing could be further from the truth… read on…
The Hilton, nor the Ritz Carlton or any other 5 star hotel could ever hold a candle to this place. 73 Othonos. was terrific and it gave me the safest and coziest feeling and true enjoyment. Ms. Stephanie was an outstanding host and my accommodations were beyond any of my expectations. My comfort level was 10 Star. My host exemplifies the true epitome of what Greek hospitality is all about… and then some.
The gated residence is spectacular, nestled beautifully with a cloister of shade trees, flowers and a beautiful furnished courtyard. It was the mind blowing majestic beauty of a magnificent olive tree which must have been least a 1000 years old that touched my heart. My accommodations were fresh, squeaky clean, beautifully furnished, no detail was over looked by the host. I enjoyed unlimited privacy and when I wanted company the next door guest was a brilliant, extremely well educated lady with multiple subjects of interest who kindly sat with me a few times sharing a fine wine - gifted to me it was blissful. Aromatic candles graced the beautifully furnished surroundings as I was visited on occasion by some extremely well behaved cats who much preferred their own privacy. Sally the dog became my friend… literally all this at an AirB&B… WOW! Amazing.
The location lends itself beautifully to the center of Kifissia Metro station which can took me all over the place. Information was at my fingertips - kindly provided by my host and what I truly valued most was how “house proud” she was of her accommodation offering. I never believed I would ever shower in a replicated ancient Minoan shower stall… I kid you not, this is for real. The entire experience made me feel “like an ancient goddess”… how unique and original is that? Without hesitation I give this AirB&B a 100+++ STAR’s… they well deserve it. Whomever graces this threshold, know it is impossible to find such incredible accommodations and a host family that really get’s what hospitality is all about. Thank you so much for an unforgettable journey. Best wishes and I shall be returning again for sure.
