memtis mother is very kind.. what else?
We stayed here for 4 days in September and then for a week in October. Mentis and Mimi were so extremely kind, considerate and helpful. Super spotless and extremely well-equipped apartment. The kitchen has everything needed to cook a full holiday dinner for 12 people. Much bigger and better than photos. Super location, super hospitality and super accommodations. Great food market on Mondays at end of street. Metro is just across the street, but we did not use much as our tourist attractions were all within a short walking distance. The best apartment and best people that I have encountered in a number of years of renting apartment. We spent two months in Greece, but our best memories are from the time we spent in the lovely apartment and our friendly encounters with Mentis and Mentis. Mentis and Mimi, thank you for doing so much to help us during our two stays.
I spent a whole week at Mentis' place with my family (my husband and two children (1 and 5 ys old). The apartment was very comfortable, clean and greatly equipped (there was everything that we needed (from needle and other small everyday utensils that you can think about to great books about Athens most attractive sites). Mimi, Mentis' mom, met us and was very helpful with information concerning nearby shops and other things that we might need. Everything was so close (bakery, shops, taverns, coffee shops, gym although we did not use it). The location was great, about a 5-10 minute walk to superb Acropolis museum and a 10-15 minute walk to Plaka. The flat is huge with beautiful terrace filled with lots of plants. The weather was great, too. We did cook a lot and were more than satisfied with how kitchen was equipped. Additionally, I would like to thank Mentis on his efforts for finding baby cot for my child. We were feeling like at home (this is quite difficult to accomplish when you are with two small kids in a new place). I will recommend this place to my friends and if we ever return to Athens, we wouldn't hesitate to come at Mentis’ place again. Additionally, I was very satisfied with communication with Mentis. He was responding almost immediately to any question that we had.
Great apartment and Mentis and his mother were both very helpful. A little trouble getting into the apartment because someone had changed the labels but eventually sorted out. Mentis organised a guide for us which was well worth the money.
Staying at Mentis' place was probably the best decision of our whole trip! We were there for 2 weeks, and could not have been more comfortable. Mimi, Mentis' mom, met us at the door with a warm greeting, and made sure everything was sparkling clean for us. We really enjoyed the patio, and large living room. Although we didn't cook at all, we loved having the full kitchen at our disposal. The location is wonderful as well, about a 10-15 minute walk to Plaka, where all of the fabulous restaurants/bars/nightlife is. During the trip we had a question that we emailed to Mentis, and he responded immediately. Communication was wonderful. We even arranged our transfer to the airport through Mimi when it was time for us to go, and we had a wonderful driver who arrived early to take us. All in all, our stay there couldn't have gone more smoothly. And if we ever return to Athens, we wouldn't hesitate to see if Mentis' place is available. Thanks for everything Mentis, only wish we could have met!!
Mentis was great with communication prior to and after trip and helped with my many transportation questions. He was out of town for wedding so unfortunately we didn't get to meet but his friend Dimitros was very helpful and even walked us over to a restaurant after we arrived late from a flight. Mentis' flat is accurately reflected in the pictures and actually even much larger - we had a lots of space. Mentis was very welcoming with maps, small gifts and items in the fridge. His flat was very clean and 7 to 10 minute walks to major sites. I was with my husband so no safety concerns in building but but if I was single woman I would take caution in Athens outside near tourist areas.
Thanks Mentis for great stay. -Sept 2013
Pre-stay communication with Mentis was very good (email & txt). Arrived at Piraeus (port) at 21:00'ish and got taxi to apartment (17 Euro). Mentis's mother Mimi is a star (thanks Mimi). She met us and saw me, my wife and teenage kids in - even spoke with taxi driver on mobile at port to give him directions. Fridge was very welcoming and apartment great. Two good bedrooms (double room and a large twin sofa room) not to mention massive settee. Bathroom, utility and lounge diner nicely and interestingly (retro modern) furnished. Plenty of room and then some for all of us. Must not forget Wifi - kids live on that stuff. 10 mins walk from the Centre and everything leads from there. Flexible check out meant what he said. Happy for us to leave late to catch metro to airport (8 euro or 14 euro couple, kids under 18 go free, taxi circa. 35-40 Euro).
Thanks Mentis - rounded off our holiday very nicely.
There was 5 of us and our stay at mentis's apartment was wonderful. We were met by his mother mimi who was such a lovely lady extremely helpful and spoke great English. The location was ideal very central to everything 5-10 minute walk to Parthenon, shops, restaurants, plaka etc. the apartment was spacious and extremely clean and we never felt like we were in each others way. Loved the open living and the decor. We have only just left there two days ago and needed to post this ASAP as we liked it so much. Mimi even stacked the fridge with goodies for us which was lovely and the wi-fi was great also. Thanks so much Mimi for your hospitality, kindness and well wishes you were sooooo lovely to deal with...
