This apartment (Liston Flats, 15 Kapodistriou) has a lot going for it. It is located in the heart of the old city within a short walk from the Adriatic sea, the hilltop Old Fortress and Palace, 300M from the Supermarket and overlooking the restaurant strip. It is very spacious with 10 foot ceilings, two bedrooms (double and 2 single), a large comfortable lounge/dining room with seating for 6, a large, well-equipped kitchen (with enough crockery, cutlery and glassware to host a large party) and a small but functional bathroom. Plenty of room for 4 people so a virtual palace for a couple. Good Wifi and a medical kit if you find yourself needing open heart surgery!
The hosts, Georgia and Yannis, speak perfect English, and are very friendly and helpful. They organised a taxi to pick us up at the airport as it was a late night flight and even purchased some food for us as we arrived late on a Saturday evening. Georgia is readily contactable by e-mail so your stay should be trouble free.
The air conditioning in the apartment is a Greek myth, two pedestal fans and two old, vented units, one in the lounge and one in the back bedroom. The vented units have the same air flow at the same temperature (room temperature) as the pedestal fans so no cooling effect at all. So if you come from a cold climate country, prepare yourself from some sub-tropical heat and if you come from the sub-tropics, welcome home. This is the only negative in what is very spacious, well-appointed and comfortable apartment in a great location.

The Liston Flat is overlooking the Esplanade and very well placed for bars, restaurants and sight seeing. There is also a supermarket nearby and also plenty of bakeries in the area.
The interior of the flat is very light and airy, having high ceilings and large widows. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we required.
Jorja was really friendly and helpful, both during the booking procedure and when she met us on arrival at the flat.
