Alena was extremely helpful to us. First day, she gave us a map and made really good suggestions. She marked the restaurants, night clubs, museums and churches on the map. She was very responsive to the messages before and during our visit. More importantly, our return flight was at 8pm and she let us check out around 3:30pm even though the official check out time is 11 am. Thanks Alena! :) I definitely recommend her apartment.

A charming apartment in the very heart if the city. Good restaurants, cafés nearby. For those interested, the apartment offers also the possibility to use it as studio for photographic purposes. Very good natural light. Alena is a reliable host, very charming in her way. Recommended.

I don't usually write negative reviews online, but this experience is something I have to mention. The host of this house is the most disrespectful person I have met on Airbnb. We rented the place for a photoshoot, the price was different from list price ($250) as mentioned in description and I asked for a discount help and the host accepted to rent the place for $150's for one night. Everything was ok till the point I confirmed the reservation. First of all, before arrival, the host asked me if we were going to shoot "PORN" and not in a humorous way? Secondly, she told me that I have to obey her new rules because she made a discount so she told me to leave the house latest at 11 AM. At check-in day, she asked if we could cancel the reservation but later luckily, she accepted not to cancel anyway. When we came to the house, she questioned my abilites as a photographer and acted very rude, asking questions like "do you even know how to use these equipments?" etc. Sorry that I didn't know what a "hot shoe" is. In my language, I used a different word for it. I suppose, this reason alone doesn't give the privilege to talk rude to people anyway. We did the photoshoot with no problems but we had to move the furnitures expecially the bed because the bed was in the middle of the room and it covered all the space, it was impossible to do the photoshoot without moving the bed, so we moved it carefully. When she came to check the house in check-out, she just berated us because we moved bed. She said that we should have asked before moving it but she rented us this place as a studio and I think she already has to know that we can move furnitures during a photoshoot as she is also a photographer. If the bed had a special condition, she should have told us in advance but she didn't. The house was nice with a very high ceiling etc. but it was decorated a little differently from the photos. I guess, black and white photos provide a little dramatic effect. In summary, I wouldn't recommend to stay here especially if you are going to do a photoshoot.

Response from Alena:
My place is first of all a private apartment. I have been renting it sometimes as a photo studio, because in the apartment is the place set up as a studio. I had never seen anybody moving my furniture. Even if they like to do so usually people respect my space and call me and ask if they can move anything. Second is Bora doesn't look like a professional photographer. Usually professionals know what is "hot shoe" in photo slang. Third is, my place is private and of course I would ask questions about what are you going to shoot at my place. And Bora arrived with girls that he call models but they doesn't look like a models at all. Thats why I ask are you sure you are not going to shoot porn, yes i was not joking about it!!! Is normal question! I care in what photos my space is going to appear. Fifth in the description of the place says that I removed my personal belongings, so yes in reality it just look like clear apartment for temporary stay. You have here everything you need. But not my personal staff!
