Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Myself, my husband and my friend stayed here for 3 nights in early April. The location of the apartment is really good, a nice neighbourhood with loads of bars and restaurants within about five minutes walk. The Metro is maybe about ten minutes walk and to get into the city centre is only about 30 minutes walk, all in all, very good location. The price of staying at the apartment is a real bargain. The apartment is very basic, so if you are looking for loads of home comforts it may not be for you. The main bedroom is a good size and the second one is small but okay for just one person. We did not get to meet Foris but Demis sorted us out when we got to the apartment. Sometimes it was difficult to get hold of Foris, and just the day before our arrival he advised we could not get into the apartment until later than we had hoped, which meant we had to hang around for a while. Overall a good experience and I would recommend it to someone looking for a good neighbourhood with somewhere to sleep and have breakfast before you head out for a day of sightseeing in beautiful Athens.
    Thanks Foris for letting us have your place and please pass on our thanks to Demis.

  • This apartment was perfect for what we needed. Quite spacious with a large living room and well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, very clean and in a very good location (this neighborhood is close enough to walk to Syntagma and Plaka (touristy/shopping centers) but far enough away to avoid the tourist traps.) Lots of nice restaurants and bars in the neighborhood, I was told by a Greek friend that we had picked the "it" neighborhood of Athens for going out.

  • The only good thing about staying in this apartment was the actual location of the place everything else was not great. When we arrived we were met by a friend of the host and never actually met the host in person. There was no shower door so water got everywhere in the bathroom. We asked for a shower curtain which eventually showed up on the last day of our stay. There was mold in the bathroom and in the master bedroom and it looked like the sheets had not been cleaned for quite some time in the other bedroom. There were pieces of food left in the sink and a dirty mop bucket in the bathroom. We were only given one roll of toilet paper for 4 girls when we ran out we requested more and on our last day we were given only one more roll. The place is photographed well but very little is in the apartment. Again great location however not a great place to stay.

  • Foris had a friend help us settle in, and he was great! Very good communication skills. Made our experience very great!

  • I really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It is about 10-15 minutes walk to Syntagma Square, so is quite central. The area was quiet and safe.

    The actual apartment has all the amenities that I needed (cooker, shower, TV, wireless internet) and all were in good working order.

    It was easy to pick up the keys. I had to ring Foris's friend upon arrival, and he was ready and waiting with the keys.

    I would certainly stay in this apartment again should I return to Athens.

  • Very clean and pleasant apartment, although somewhat spartan furnishings. A quiet street set up a hill, no more than ten minute walk to the metro at the University of Athens. All in all, we were very satisfied and have no complaints. We recommend it.

  • Thank you for the lovely time in Athens! Everything was quite nice and I enjoyed my stay.

  • I went to Athens for business and decided to stay at Foris' place.
    He was a great host and really friendly, he was always there to help me and guide me.
    The apartment has all the necessary amenities and is really comfortable.
    As for the location it is great, albeit it is quite a walk to get there because it is uphill but because i used a taxi it was fine.
    It is quiet and a really nice neighbourhood and the center of Athens is merely a short walk away even though it doesn't feel like it because of the quietness of the neighbourhood!
    Thanks Foris, hope to stay at your place again!

  • We personally didn't get to know Foris, but his friend picked us up at the front of the building and gave exact instructions about the flat, wifi access, etc. The apartment looked as presented on the pictures. It's well located, although there might be problem with finding a parking spot around (hillside).
    The apartment was clean, but there was some water constantly on the bathroom floor. Good place at a good price!

  • The location is really good. It is a bit up the hill, but really nice, safe and quite. The apartment does not have the view, because it is the ground floor facing the stairs. The master bedroom was perfect, the small one is useless ( not useless if you like small cells ). We had hot water all the time. All kitchen appliances were working good. The heating is AC only, but it is warm if it is constantly on...The apartment is 10 minutes walk from Syntagma and every major location, including Plaka, Efmu etc. The taxi is really cheap, so i recommend it.

Hello! My name is Foris. I'm from the beautiful island of Cyprus. I am a pro athlete of the Cypriot national team, in distance running. I have also attended the national university of Athens in primary education department. I love running and traveling. My favorite travel destination except Cyprus, is Kenya!

Nowadays, I am using my airbnb income to fulfill my childhood dream of participating in the olympic games, specifically to fund my preparation for the Rio 2016.
