It's a very nice apartment in very central location of Athens. As the first Airbnb experience of us, it gave u very good memories. Thanks a lot!
Thanks Oliver. you're welcome anytime
We (two adults, one 10-year old child) stayed at this apartment for four nights during the first week of February 2015. We were hosted by the owner of the flat, Yiannis. He met us there when we arrived in the late afternoon, gave us information on local restaurants and sights, and had provided some yogurt, milk, coffee for the next day's breakfast. He checked in with us daily via email throughout our stay and could not have been kinder. The apartment itself was exactly as advertised and pictured. It has one large, combined room with a comfortable double bed and sofa, kitchen/dining area, separate bathroom, and that view! The place was spotless and had good wifi. The location is on a quiet side-street in between the Plaka and Syntagma Square areas and is easily accessible to all the major sights. I would highly recommend this apartment to any one considering a comfortable non-hotel stay. [One small thing: it is not heated though there is a space heater. The weather was perhaps unusually warm when we were there (up to 18 C during the day) but it did get a little chilly at night. There is air-conditioning for the warmer months.]
Thank you Ny and your lovely family for your stay. I'm realy sorry that you did find that there is a thermal unit of 30000 btu to heat the place. you're welcome anytime.
Mentis молодец. Ничего лишнего, все по делу. Помог с вызовом минивэна-такси, это для Греции проблема (у них даже универсал-такси не найти). В квартире есть все необходимое, очень удобная, и стильная. Если едете с детьми, то следите за наличием горячей воды. Она от солнечных батарей и в межсезонье надо отдельно включать подогрев. Но спасибо Mentis, он заранее обо всем предупредил. А его рекомендации по ближайшим точкам общепита вообще выше похвал - не дорого и очень вкусно. Расположение апартаментов доступное и удобное, рядом стоянка такси, если что. Отдохнули на отлично, спасибо, Mentis
I had a fantastic week at Mentis place. The apartment is cosy, clean, quiet, beautiful, fully equipped, the bed is very comfortable and the location is close to everything person might need - especially to all public transports (the Metro has two stations neer by). the apartment is also a few minute wallk from the Acropolis and from center of Athens.
Mentis was very generous and well-comming and his mother, wich helped us durring our stay, is lovely woman.
I certainly recommend.
thank you Mentis and mimi.
I stayed at Mentis apartment for 4 nights and it was just perfect.
The flat is the place Mentis live and there for furnished and equipped as a home. It's nice decorated, rooms, bathroom and kitchen, wonderful flourish great balcony, central heating 24 hours. It has all you need.
The location very good, especially because it's just few meters from a main road full of shops if needed, 100 meters from the Metro station-very important while return back from the city after all day walking. The Tram is just 50 meters and brings you in 10 minutes to the Syntagma Square. The neighborhood is quite and we fill safe even at late night Unfortunately Mentis left abroad while my staying, but most of the help we needed he gave us by correspondence before coming and in the day we arrived. Mantis is very friendly and his mother helped us when we needed. All other information in the "Appartament description" is accurate, and so the other reviews.
Undoubtly we recomand Mentis appartment for staying in Athens.
Yiannis made my stay unique. No matter if my request was last minute, Yannis managed to be perfect. I will definitely go back. The space is fantastic.
Apologies for the fact I broke by mistake the shutters.
Thank you for everything!
Thank you Dimitris for your stay, the condition you left the flat and your nice comments. Happy travels.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fantastically apartment. The decor was beautiful and view of the Arcopolics simply spectacular. The location was second to none and within easy walking distance of all the main sites. Yannis gave us a very warm welcome and provided us with some great restaurant recommendations. The flat was extremely well stocked - we arrived very late but Yannis had left us fresh milk and nespresso capsules - which were great for our first morning.
You're always welcome. Maybe for the 10 km race next year. Thank you.
Our stay was simply joyful. Even a rainy day couldn't beat the spectacular views and the beautiful apartment. Highly recommended.
Alon thank you so much!
Wonderful Apartment. It was exactly like described. Very clean and Amazing views. It is within walking distance to almost everything we wanted to see in Athens. Yiannis was very helpful and gave us tips around town and his restaurant advise has all been great. He was always available for advice. Small details such as coffee, tea, candies, paper towels and lots of toilet paper was much appreciated!! We believe we will be back soon :)
Girls thank you so much for the stay, the condition you left the house and the great wine!
What a great stay in a great location. Going to bed and waking up with the view of the Acropolis was amazing! Plaka is THE place to stay. Tons of restaurants, bars, cafe's and shops...and Mentis's flat is right in the middle of it! Honestly, I cannot think of a better place to stay! If my travels ever find me in Athens again...and I hope they do, I will hopefully stay with Mentis!
Tim thank you for your stay, the condition you left the flat and your kind words. Regards to your lovely girlfriend. You're always welcome
Mentis was an excellent guest. Kept the house very clean and taking care of the flowers. thank you so much you are welcome any time!
It was a very positive experience. I'm happy to have shared my house with sucha friendly, respectful and social traveller. Welcome anytime!
amazing guy and amazing host
Mentis is a very nice guy, easy going, social and great fun. He works as a tour guide so he knows Athens by heart. His flat is located very very close to the Acropolis and the pedestrian street of Areopagitou which is probably the most beautiful spot in Athens. The flat is super clean and tidy and has a great balcony too. It's definitely worth its price. The flat is also next to the filopappou hill which is the best place to hike or jog in Athens. There's even some Tai-Chi going on there if it's your cup of tea!
Mentis is just the most adorable person I have even met.I have the pleasure to know him for many years and he is sweet, calm and generous.
I enjoy his company extremely, chilling on his house makes me relax ...he is the best host and his house is so welcoming, tidy and there is always something nice to bite.
Additionally, Mentis is my favourite travel partner since 2007 and even if we stay in private houses or designed hotels we always enjoy our trips extremely.
I have known Mentis for a very long time. My family, friends and I have stayed in his place several times and he is the most fantastic host and an intelligent young man. His place is close to the best part of downtown Athens, it's beatifully decorated and so comfotrable. Enjoy your stay there!!!
