This apartment was perfect for our stay in Athens. The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of space for three of us and while small the kitchen worked fine for a few basic meals. We didn't get to meet Labros since he had been called out of town, however, he was still very r…

Photos are deceiving, kitchen is just a sink/ hob, bathroom is compromised but worst of all is the noise. The street is used as the main walk through from the Acropolis and is very noisy. Of the 4 nights we stayed we had problems on 3 of them. On two occasions youths had to be…

Response from Labros:
The behaviour of Mr. Tim Whaley unfortunately was almost offensive. He and his family comments when he was welcomed by me in the house were positive and happily surprised by the inside of the house. No disappointment was expressed at that time whatsoever. The photos give an exact description of the small smart kitchen of the house with the exact appliances listed through Airbnb and it's the first time i heard something like that. The comment regarding the bathroom i am not able to even comment about as the characterazation compromised is in the contrary with the reality and more likely a negative review. As for the noise, it is untrue that the area and the house were noisy the 3 of the 4 nights. The client informed me late at night (the 2nd night) about the noise of some dogs, which were inside the basement of the building and belong to the neighbour who cares for them and also about some children who were outside (in a public area) and played. It is very important to note and consider that following client's complain, and in approx. 30 minutes, I had contacted the neighbour about the dogs and the building administator about the children's noise, and resolved both issues. The client did not express any thanks. Of course, if the client had informed me about any issues during the 1st night I would have resolved them promptly again. It seems that during the last night some children had shown around the house and the noise from their chating was distructing. Mr. Whaley had complained again but the time was nearly midnight and it was not possible to reach the building administrator in order to request the children to leave further away from the building's road entrance. Having exhausted all options, i kindly asked the client to request by the children to be more quite outside. Obviously, it is not possible to control a whole public area, or prevent some incidents from happening, although the acropolis area is mostly quiet and always safe. Finally, the street it is most certainly not noisy. It is a narrow, one way street which directs you in 100m in the pedestrian street where the archaeological site of Acropolis begins. The objective review of the house is reflected in the vast majority of the reviews available.
