    Very clean

    “Great experience. The mixture of guys is great and different ages. The sauna itself is very clean and well looked after. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone else who is coming to Athens or living in Athens. I visited two other saunas in Athens but this is the best!“

    Nice men 20 - 60 more bear crowd.
    Best time to go is 4pm - 9pm Wednesday Sunday is to busy.“

  7. D Dino
    no old entry:

    “They blatantly discriminate at entry booth, and will not let you enter, just because of my gray hair. Go to alexander sauna.“

    • T Tom
      To fake.

      “What you say against flex sauna is a complete stupid thing. If you want to advertise the other sauna you know that what I saw is that the flex sauna is the best in Athens.
      All I see for one month in flex sauna is about 50% of the people there have grey hair. So all you say against flex sauna is of interests.“

  8. P PAUL
    Lovely sauna right in the center of Athens

    “Lovely sauna right in the center of Athens with large steam bath sauna, rooms for rest, big dark rooms, glory hole cabins and cabins for rest....busier on Wednesdays, Sunday afternoon but also the rest of the days 4-8pm. I recommend it to you!“

  9. V Vasilios

  11. K Kris
    Why not

    “I went on Friday between 17h/20h: there are some people but not very my type, except one.
    The sauna is clean but not new and the jacuzzi smell too hard (the clean product).“

    • T Tom
      Flex is nice

      “i went to flex and what I saw was not so old guys you can not call someone an old man when he is 56 year old. The average I saw was 35-55 years old. Not old. “

  12. P Patrick
    Flex for sex

    “Nice sauna very clean. Nice renovation!!best time to go 5pm - 9pm. Sundays is good. Thanks flex i see you again. xxx“

  13. J James
    Love FLEX

    “Honestly, this was my first time visiting a bath house and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The facilities were clean and well kept, the staff was amazing.Definitely would recommend it to people in the future! I'll see be going there whenever I'm in Athens.“

  14. M Marco
    Nice sauna

    “I m 40 years old man and was there 3 times and I like very much this sauna.. nice, different, people of every age...and nice staff..as with every sauna sometimes there are nice guys and sometimes none.“

  15. S Stefan

    “Visitors to many saunas in Europe and I can say that flex is one of the best. saunas in Europe have been badly spoiled while the flex 15 years is doing the best. The laat Renovation very good. Flex has the cheapest entrance from all saunas in Europe. In flex go more mucho guys more bear people.is clean friendly staff. i like the balcony with jacuzzi.Is more busy afternoons 5pm - 9pm Wednesdays & Sundays is to busy.Summertime us to hot in Athens so the Greek people do not go to much in the sauna. I read many lies here against flex and those who did it would definitely be miserable bad people.“

  16. R Royax
    It's okay

    “It's okay. The dry sauna is rather small but the place is good enough if you're looking for some fun. There's a steam room, in case the Sauna is occupied. I'm satisfied with my visit.“

  17. Y Yiannis
    When I went there I was refused entry as I was (the doorman said)too old! Insulting and offensive to say the least. So if you are over 45 years old DONT go

    “When I went there I was refused entry as being too old I was 55 at the time.
    So if you are over 42/43 don’t venture there just to be ridiculed and offended at once.“

    • B Bill

      “You are obviously lying, don't know why. I've been there plenty of times and seen men of all ages, even at their 60's!“

  18. f flo
    just ok

    “Quiet-maybe 10 guys total in 3 hours on a weekend day. A bit old and tired with kitschy undertones. Clean-ish, guy at front desk friendly.“

  19. J Jonathan
    Bad experience

    “If you like bears and big ages, it is perfect! I didn’t like it! If you more on the fashion/fem side, don’t go! The sauna seemed to be for only 'straight' people.“

  20. S Sammy
    Achtung! Achtung!

    “If you’re « old » or look « old , » don’t bother seeking this place out ! They only let « young guys » in because it’s too hard for the rest of us to climb the stairs. No elevator to the upper floors.

    The website makes no mention of this. In our best interest, I guess; BUT could this be age-descrimination??“

  21. G George
    Really poor facilities and full of old men

    “Everyone here is 50+ and the facilities are really poor, even after the renovation. If you aren't into old men, I wouldn't recommend it.“

    • N Nick
      Conflicting reviews

      “What conflicting reviews above - obviously one of the reviewers is talking through his a** (re old or young visitors). Who needs dopey reviews like this. Had a local guy tell me that Flex is good for the more mature guys, so who do you believe?“

  22. P PARIS

    “New renovated sauna in the center of Athens.Very clean sauna with friendly staff. I recommend it!“

  23. N Nik
    Amazing sauna

    “Best sauna in Athens and one of best in Europe“

  24. A Andy
    I can't beleive this

    “I went there not knowing what to expect and the most incredible thing happened. As I was wondering through the facilities, I happened to realize that I was not Madonna.“

  25. M Marcel
    Refused entry

    “I tried to enter with my partner, he is Greek (62), and the guy at the register rejected him. The employees are very rude and unfriendly. Tourists of all ages can enter but not elder Greek men. “

  26. N Nik
    Not wanted

    “I visited the sauna on August 17, 2017. On my way out, staff told me not to go back because I supposedly bothered customers! I shocked. Of course I did not. In my claim to bring them there, those who said this, replied that this is not police. I am a customer there from the first day that sauna opened. I did not expect that they would offend me like that. “

  27. S Sam
    Very nice

    “I love the bear day every Wednesday“

  28. M Manos
    I love flex sauna

    “I have to say that most of the negative criticisms are written against Flex sauna is by people who [were removed from] Flex sauna because of offending behavior or is from [a competitor]. Do do not believe anything against Flex sauna it is all lies.“

  29. M Mario
    I love FLEX

    “I go to all the saunas of Athens but the flex sauna is the best! The renovation is perfect! The staff that works is very polite. I really like the roof garden. What are written here against the Flex Sauna sorry but is not true.“

  30. b barragan
    the renovation made it worse

    “Very bad renovation !!! It made it worse than before.... The sauna is also not good since it does not heat properly....“

    • M Manos
      Flex sauna is the best in town

      “The renovation is perfect and it is not over yet.“

  31. G George
    Spend your money somewhere else.

    “This place is a disgrace for Athens and the gay community. All the staff that works there are straight and very rude.

    They recently renovated the space and it become worst than it was, and not only that, they raise the entrance fee to 12 euros now, they close at midnight, and also closed some days during the week. Definitely is not worth your time and your money. The steam room usually smells bad every time you enter. I suggest you find another place to have fun “

  32. B Brandon
    Horny place when busy!

    “When it's quiet here, it's not worth the entrance charge. But when it's busy it can be horny!

    Re. the age thing, I'm 60 and I got in without any problems. What's more, I met another 60-year-old while I was there. Dare I say that neither of us are overweight or unattractive. I think that's what's really going on here at Flex: as it's a sauna for Greek men, they want to keep it sexy and don't want the atmosphere compromised.“

  33. R Ralph
    Daddy Bear

    “I read in the reviews that older guys are not permitted to enter the Flex sauna. Is this stil true and did you change your policies?“

    • J Jyri

      “I will visit Athens mid October and would like to spend some time in FLEX. Unfortunately I'm already 55 and my friend is 70 (but in good shape). Does the Sauna lets us in or are we too old?“

  34. A Andrea
    Very nice sauna

    “Not very Big but clean and friedly staff. I was there 3 days and people are from 30 y.o to 50 depending on the day. Sometimes there were some very nice guys. The sauna is in the center of the city near tourist attraction and easy to find.“

  35. C Clark
    Age discrimation

    “How humiliating. I was told at reception "this sauna is only for younger men" and was refused admission. It makes one wonder how else they might discriminate? I'll gladly spend my euros and time elsewhere.“

    • J Jusin
      yep, got that 2

      “# Clark: that's ok don't let it get to you, not worth it anyway, we just keep our money and spend it where it is most appreciated. we should support more straight people's business - at least they are kinder to older gays, Truth be told, gay men are the most and worst when it comes to discrimination. so I am not sure about where all this "pride" is really coming from. I tell you there is nothing to be proud of being hypocritical towards other gays!!!“

  36. R Ralph
    Just a few thoughts

    “Nothing really wrong, but not very busy the few days that I visited.“
