Lots of wet and dry play areas like a prison theme darkroom with a sling and the all-naked area in the basement. There's a bar that serves alcohol and a small garden for cruising. Very customer-oriented as the staff are helpful and always cleaning. Yes there are dark areas - which is why they are called "dark rooms" - but there are plenty of chances to check out the other customers in the dimly lot areas. International crowd when I was there on a Saturday with several bearded Americans in their 30s, two 40s portly Africans and one hot 20s Asian with a six-pack. Most of the crowd was Greek in their late 30s upwards with the action picking up after 2 a.m.
Gay Athens travel guide
The Athens gay scene is growing, though you have to know the places to go, there are usually no signs of gay flags outside to point out what it is. The main gay village is at Gazi, where most of the gay venues are located just north of "Kerameikos " metro station. Especially at the corner of Iera Odos street with Megalou Alexandrou street you'll find many bars. Once inside it's quite entertaining, some nice clubs and bars.Athens gay guide
Situated in the centre of Athens, within walking distance to Monastiraki and Plaka, this design hotel offers luxurious, minimalist rooms, in vivid colours.
Reviews by visitors
Admittedly it was a Tuesday night but this place was DEAD. Not the fault of the venue...it was just empty. It had all the facilities and was reasonably priced. Recommend you go on a theme night or maybe the weekend when I'm sure it would be busier.
very nice sauna, the best in athens...with nice boys.....i was there 4 times during this week and there were some very nice greek boys
If you choose 1 sauna in Athens, this should be it. The others are dirty, old, and depressing. Alexander is very clean, well organised/designed place, friendly helpful staff, European quality sauna, 4 floors, central, HOT guys, especially late weekend nights after people come from the nearby clubs. They have a good deal: 2-entry pass for EUR23. I heard about rent boys, but I never saw anything when I was there. Go have fun. Its near the subway metro station Keramikos. They have a good deal: 2-entry pass for EUR23.
This place is a DUMP!!!
Don't go unless you really like wandering dark decrepit alleys to find a grim looking place. I've been there 2 times, and it was not good. Everything is falling apart, it looks unclean, needs a renovation badly, the towels are old and over-used, they can't afford fabric softener, and the cabins look like cardboard, with vinyl "beds" that are split from over use. People were generally old/fat, except for the few hot ones that got lured in by the false advertising. I promise you, this is nowhere near European or North American standards. Go to Alexander Sauna - way better, modern, clean, and hot guys.
