Very great place to stay in Vilnius! Perfect location for walks into the centre. Very charming designed interior, very nice and uncomplicated host. I recommend this place for every trip to the beautiful lithuania!
This was my first time to book an apartment through airbnb. I was so glad to meet a host like Gintaras. He is so helpful and patient to make guick response to our queries. It was a valuable experience to stay in Gintaras' apartment, since that was not easy to have a chance to live in a flat with interior height over 5 metres! Those huge windows provide comfortable sunlight. We found the bus stop ( no 1, 3G and 88 ) within 5-minutes walk from the apartment, that makes the connection to airport very ideal.
Well, what can I say. The experience of staying in Vilnius was mystifying. As a native New Yorker, the experience at this beautiful loft was perfect. There is history. There is simplicity. There is an attention to detail that is hard to match. It's really hard to put into words what staying here feels like. It's open, airy, quiet, and peaceful. But that feeling exists within a context of a city that is, at times, decaying, confusing, and difficult. But that is what made staying here something I will never forget. Sure, it would be nice to be closer to Old Town. But I think in order to fully appreciate the beauty of Old Town, you have to step away. You feel like a local Lithuanian staying here. It's that simple. You acclimate. You are forced to adapt. Things are beautiful everywhere you look, but you are reminded that change in Lithuania is slow, but evolving. There is an underlying spirit here. A relentless progression. An unyielding desire to change, socially, economically. Yes, the loft is amazing. It's clean. It's unique. It's wonderful. Gintaras is available anytime. His communication is fantastic. But the loft only enhances the real Vilnius experience. Be prepared to think out of the box. Be prepared to be emotionally affected. Be prepared to experience a city that is both tragic and inspiring. Be prepared to be changed.
I liked Gintaras place very much. This is very cool loft in old factory. I've been there with my mother and she liked it also - great windows, cute second floor ! You are very close to central part of Vilnius and 24/7 shop is just 2 blocks from this flat!
We loved our stay here. The loft is stylish and feels very spacious and airy. As well as that, it's so well situated that we almost never used artificial light because the sun always gets in. That means that if you have troubles sleeping when it's not dark you might need to take some sleeping mask. We found the location convenient as it took us less then 10 minutes to get to the old town on bikes.
Gintaras was a great host. He was very helpful with everything as he picked us up on our arrival, helped us rent out bikes and even call us a taxi upon our departure even thought it was an early Saturday morning.
Overall, our stay hardly could have been better so I really recommend.
We had an awesome time in Gintaras Loft! The industrial design is very nice and made with love. Gintaras is a kind host and i recommend everybody to stay there, its worth it!
Gintaras place is an interesting option for the interior architecture and rough industrial ambiance of the building. Also The wide windows bring a lot of pleasant sun shine that you can enjoy also in The balcony.
Advisable for long stays (more than 4 days) to really enjoy this place!
Not advised for:
-Those who want to be close to The city center, because it is way out of it. It is 15 to 20 min walk, but it isn't a nice walk. If you come home around midnight or more you will pass some real dark areas,
-Those who are higyene freaks
- those who have trouble sleeping with a lot of light, should bring eyes cover.
For us it was a Nice experience but for just 2 nights, would have prefered to be close to restaurants, cafes and nice Vilnius city center.
Beautiful loft in a very interesting area of Vilnius. Surprise yourself and see what can be done to create a luxurious loft in such an industrial area. Gintaras received us in his place, gave a quick tour, map and some directions, and after that we really enjoyed staying in this loft. Very well located, equipped and clean.
Gintaras is the perfect host, from booking a taxi to meet me at the airport to ensuring that I met my departing bus to Rīga on time and everything in between. Aesthetically from the outside the apartment block leaves much to the aspiration of a developer or designer, but inside Gintaras' apartment he has bet them to it. This is a lovely large and sunny apartment, beautifully and functionally laid out. There is more than ample space for a traveler's suitcase to explode with room to maneuver. The small balcony was a welcome relief to the warm and humid weather of Vilnius during my stay. High above the going on of the world it was a safe and pleasant place to be. The apartment is within walking distance of the old city, a 24 hour supermarket, bottle shop, chemist and almost everything else you may need that isn't already included in Ginataras' apartment. The wifi was super fast and the adequate sound system made it just that little more like home. This is a perfect place to base yourself to explore the beautiful but small town of Vilnius. The apartment is on the third floor and the absence of a lift increased my fitness level somewhat!!! I would highly recommend this apartment to the Airbnb community.
Outstanding flat full of light and space, really very comfortable, warm and cozy. Bonus with the possibility of peeping your mate washing in the shower is exciting and intriguing :-) Dear Gintaras, thank you very much for you special place and our good vacancies! Hope we'll have a chance to cоme back. We'll do it with great pleasure. Thank you! :-)
