The serviced apartment was in an ideal location for the items I had to do in Moscow. The studio apartment was clean, had plenty of storage space and comfortable. There was also a welcome breakfast pack in the fridge freezer, which was a nice touch.
The entrance and access to the apartment block may put people, especially women as it is not very pleasing! However because I have lived in Russia for sometime it was not a problem for me.
The apartment was cleaned everyday and the people trustworthy as I had left some valuables out with no problems.
I would certainly go back to this apartment and found the service very good.
First, must say that Sergei who checked us in was super polite, spoke English and was most helpful.
I'm writing this review with hopes that it will help them improve their services but also warn future potential guests. I rely on reviews when booking and they have helped me tremendously. That said, the apartment was filthy, when we wanted to use the kitchen pots they still had oil on them and the forks and knives had dried food on them. We had to wash everything including the electric kettle as it was not only grimy on top but caked inside. The floor was filthy and we did not see this as stupidly on our part we did not turn on all the lights when we checked in. (Please see pictures) They definitely need to review their cleaning methods and staff. The bed needs to be changed as one feels the springs coming through. Perhaps one of their other apartments are better, but I would definitely stay away from this one. Moreover, if one requires quiet, then again the apartment is on the first floor with windows next to the entry so with windows open you hear the entry door to the building opening and closing, young people drinking on the bench outside and to top it there is a yapping dog which lives on the floor above.
However, as stated Sergei is great and if he has other places, just make sure you check them out first for cleanliness, etc., before moving in!
This studio apartment is located in a cozy corner of Moscow in the heart of the city, on the one hand in the 15-minute walk …More
Authentic Russian hotel. The hotel is difficult to find unless you know that its got no name on it outside and that it is just a double door from the road. Once inside the hotel is on the first floor. Unattractive front of hotel but once inside comfortable and homely. Some staff very nice & helpful some less so. 5 bedrooms with 2 very nice bathrooms to share, both very clean and no problems with sharing. Metro station about 10 mins away. Nice coffee & cake cafes across the road open till late and a 24 hour shop selling alcohol & chocolate also across the road. Cooked breakfast included. TVs and free WiFi in all rooms. We had family room which was 2 connecting rooms and a small dressing room/wardrobe. You can walk to the Kremlin from the hotel it's about 40 min walk through the pedestrianised shopping area. It's about 2 stops on the metro.
