  • 3 out of the 4 nights of my stay in Moscow were spent in a hotel booked in addition to my rental through airbnb due to a change in my booking made prior to departure. As a result I am only able to review my booking/communication experience with the hosts and not the apartment. This is a factual account of my experience intended to relay the events as they happened.

    The accommodation I originally booked was located at Sadovnicheskaya Street (700m from Kremlin), this was changed by the hosts a week before my departure. I was not informed directly but 'found out' through noticing a discrepancy in a reservation reminder sent through airbnb. As the location of the substitute apartment (Kosmodamianskaya Naberezhnaya, 1700m from Kremlin) was less convenient than the original property, I negotiated a minor discount with the host as a good will gesture to assure me that my stay would not be adversely affected by this change in property. The host reassured me that the standard of the substitute flat was higher than the one I had originally booked, and details of the property included in my revised booking reminder noted that 'modern' conveniences were available within the property (air conditioner, WiFi etc.) so I decided to keep my booking with the host. This was now 5 days prior to my departure to Moscow, so finding an alternative property was not really a possibility at this time.

    When I arrived in Moscow, (and after a lengthy process of locating the flat) I realised the substitute property was of a lower quality to what had been described. There was a distinct absence of modern fittings and the flat was substantially overheated, with no apparent way to regulate the temperature. The main room also had a note taped to the window which read 'do not open'. The shower was not in full working order and I was unable to connect to the internet. As a result I was checked out of the property after the first night, and instructed the host directly of my departure upon registering with an alternative residence in Moscow.

    Please bear in mind that this is not a review of the property I stayed in, as it is not technically any of the properties advertised by Irina and Alexey. The property appears to be owned by a separate airbnb host. What I am trying to illustrate is the way in which the hosts went about informing me of the significant change in my booking as well as their dishonesty about the standard of the substitute accommodation. The flat I originally booked now appears to have been completely removed from airbnb, although the internal images of the original flat still remain in reference to the apartment I actually stayed in.

    My personal experience with the hosts (on this occasion) has left me thinking that there is no certainty of the quality or location of the property you may be presented with when booking a residence through airbnb.

  • I was absolutely satisfied with the appartment.
    Champaign and apples were waiting for me when I came :)
    Moreover the location is brilliant. It's really close to Red Square and close to the metro station which is also important.
    The are plenty of cafes and restaurants over there.
    I highly recommend this place for everyone.
    Thank you Irina & Alexey!

  • The apartment is in great condition and in the middle of the old town in Moscow - great if you're around for a night or two, or a business trip.

    However, I'd not recommend it if you're on holiday unfortunately. The place is absolutely spotless, and the location is great and very secure, and just a 10 minute walk to the Kremlin, but it's right opposite a huge industrial site, which is super noisy. When I was there there was no way of turning down the heat, hence I had to open the window a number of times. I would have loved to sleep with the window open as it was like a sauna in there, but absolutely no chance because of the noise...

    Also, unfortunately I had my own little Airbnb moment of truth - It was hard for me to find the entrance, as there were three buildings with the same street number, but no description on how to get in. I was walking around in the dark and in the rain trying to get in after a long flight, when I finally managed to get hold of the host he tried explaining to me in really where to go although the language barrier was too big. The second time I called he just hung up on me.

    This is the problem with "professionals". You can never actually be sure who you're speaking to. It's a shame they don't bother sending someone to check their guests in personally. It would definitely improve the guests' experiences. So bottom line is:

    Great for a night as really good price but no if you're looking to stay longer or if you're looking for an authentic, local experience.

    Response from Irina And Alexey:

    Dear Paula, thank you for the reference. We turned down the heat, thank you for the information. Now it is perfect for all guests. The apartment is still located 700 meters away from Red Square of Kremlin which is 5 minutes by walk. we have perfect conditions, the street where the building stands is very silent, because it is away from the traffic!!!!

    There is only one building with the number specified in the address (street number). There is detailed map and instructions how to find the building with pictures and detailed explanations. We are always available round o clock and accessible by 3 different phones. The weather is not always perfect in Moscow, sorry, but it does not depend on us. Thanks for staying, but be respectful and truthful, speaking to you by the phone you mentioned that you perfectly love it and you made your way in 3 minutes after our short conversation. Regards.
    The building where the apartment if located is authentic cultural heritage of historical Moscow center very well respected by all local communities
