The Space

The house is located near the metro station "Polezhaevskaya", in a quiet, beautiful yard. Nice, eight-storeyed house was built in time of Stalin. You will enjoy the location, because it is not the outskirts of Moscow, and the district is located close to the historic centre of the capital (25-30 min). The three-room apartment has high ceilings.

Only one room (20 sq. m) is for rent. There are two nice families live in other two rooms. Kitchen, bathroom and toilet. In the room there are two sofa beds suitable for 4 people, TV, Internet, table, chairs, ironing board and wardrobe with clean bed linen, towels, extra pillows and blankets. There is also refrigerator, washing machine, gas cooker, microwave oven, coffee machine in the kitchen. A cleaning service on the arrangement is possible.

Next to the house there is a park with a nice restaurant of the famous Georgian cuisine with an open terrace. Transport (trolley buses, fixed-route taxi and buses) operate regularly. 10 min on foot from the metro station to the house. In 12 min by metro you reach Pushkin square and the main street of Moscow. Further 10-15 min on foot and you are on the Red square in the very centre of the city.

Kindly Welcome!

  • Wir, meine Frau und ich, waren eine Woche bei Galina und haben unsere Wahl keinesfalls bereut. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit, das Zimmer ist groß und die Lage ist für Moskauer Verhältnisse zentrumsnah. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis ist unschlagbar. Alles in allem ist diese Adresse auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen.

  • Me and my friends had a nice stay at Galina's house. The room is warm, cosy and Galina is a kind and helpful person. I would say it's a really good choice if you want to spend some days in Moscow, because is close to the metro station (about 10 minutes by walking) and some markets.

  • I stayed at Galina's flat for three weeks while I was doing an internhip in Moscow. The room was very spacious, clean and quiet - exactly like in the pictures.The next metro station is a 10 min walk away and the metro line takes you directly to the city centre. However, the best part of my stay was Galina's hospitality. She is such a fantastic host, treating me with delicious Russian breakfast and sweets. When I had any questions Galina was always willing to help or when I just wanted to have a chat to improve my Russian language skills- she was there. I highly recommend her place, especially when staying longer in Moscow, as it is quiet and offers privacy. It is also great for experiencing Russian hospitality and I felt really welcome. I will definitely stay at Galina's again, when I return to Moscow. Рекомендую! Огромное спасибо Галина.

  • Everything was fine with our stay. The room we were staying in was spacious, clean and comfortable, and it was very good value for money. The location is very convenient, just a 10/15 minute walk from the metro, and within half an hour of the centre of town. The area itself was a quiet residential area. Galina was a lovely host, who made sure we had a nice time while staying with her. She even made us ice cream, aubergine salad and pancakes on various occasions. There were other people staying in the two other rooms in the apartment, but we didn't see them very often, and when we did, they were perfectly friendly. Our bedroom was lockable. Galina sleeps on a sofa bed in the (small) kitchen, so if you're the kind of person who likes to cook yourself a curry at 3 in the morning, this may not be the place for you. This was by no means a problem for us, however. Overall, a very pleasant stay, perfect for an individual or couple (preferably Russian speaking).

  • Everything was fine, for more details please see my review from Dec 2012.
    The only change - the host lives in the kitchen while guests are staying in her room. This is fine, though it means that at times the kitchen is not accessible. There also seems to be some tension bamong the housemates about the issue. (Which did not have an effect on my stay, but it is something to be aware of.)

  • My stay at Galina's was great. First of all, the apartment is very well located, you can reach the center of Moscow within 20 minutes. The apartment is clean and well-kept and you'll find everything you need, including the possibilty to prepare your own meals. I stayed with Galina for almost 3 weeks, and as I had to do research for my master thesis her place was perfect for me - the room is spaceous, quiet, and offers a table and a couch where you can work and study. There is unlimited access to the internet. But the most important thing is that the people who live there are welcoming, very very friendly and warmhearted. They will welcome you with great hospitality, but will also respect your privacy. I felt at home right away. It is a great place if you want to experience russian hospitality, practice your language skills, or just want to realx after a busy day. Galina will always be there to help, chat, and pamper you with russian treats (it helps a lot if you speak Russian, though!).
    As the room is quite big and you have enough storage for clothes and you can use the kitchen whenever you like, I can also recommend Galina's room if you plan on staying longer or are looking for a central, quiet place to stay while studying, researching, doing an internship or the like. I would definitely stay at her place again if I came back to Moscow. Спасибо, Галина!
