The apt is just as described. It’s a local rustic place with artistic charm. We really enjoyed meeting Doros and his local tips. The Cretan restaurant he recommended was amazing!

Seems to be that in this age of uber the 5 star rating has been watered down a bit, but Elpidoforos's apartment here is a real opportunity for a traveler. The price of course speaks for itself but the location is great (walking distance to the Archeology Museum, generally easy t…

Doros met us at the bus stop when we came in late, which we really appreciated! He is very personable, knowledgeable about Athens, and very passionate about its history, and the local neighborhood. We greatly appreciated that he took the time to star some historical sites and a l…

Response from Elpidoforos:
Reviews like this are always welcome and useful because they help me become a better host. However, It would be appropriate for me to address all the issues mentioned one by one: The guests acknowledge that I was waiting for them in the bus stop for a very late check-in, in which I spent about forty minutes explaining the apartment and the neighborhood recommending places for them including sites, restaurants, cafes and bars. So reading in their review that I rushed through the orientation was confusing to me.Providing all guests with info and recommendations is an essential part of my idea of a hosting experience. As far as cleanliness is concerned comments like "abandoned bachelor pad" are far from describing reality. There are no clothes in the closet just some extra sheets and pillows for guests. The apartment is cleaned thoroughly before each check-in and all spaces are decontaminated. Comments like "smell of urine" are completely unjustified, the bathroom was cleaned with 3 different detergents including antibacterial bleach just before each check-in. If the supplies provided were not enough for the duration of the guests stay I am always available to bring more. I make sure explaining to every guest that they should feel free to contact me any time they need anything or ask for any clarifications .Nevertheless, no contact has been made from the guests part during their stay. It is true that it is an old apartment but it completely functional and clean.This is the reason why this is a "budget" choice and, as mentioned in many of the previous reviews, a good value for money.

The host was very helpful, our plane was delayed and he had to wait an hour longer for us and he did not complain, he even met us at the bus stop! He had lots of tips and told us the best places to go. The city felt safe overall as long as you are aware of your surroundings. The …

I liked the spaciousness of the place. I enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. Great location. The WiFi was around 2mb, but when I used my Ethernet cable it was around a 5mb download. Doros was a very helpful host.

Hi , my name is Elpidoforos which can be translated from Greek as "the one who bares hope. I actually find it difficult to live up to the meaning of my name, but I really am doing my best. Most people just call me Doros for short - which, by the way, means "gift" or "present…
