I'm from the states, and I've been in Moscow for just over a year. I enjoy working out, skiing, going to concerts, and trying out new restaurants.
Great stay! Thanks
Chad is a great host, and his property is immaculate. I spent 5 days in residence, and was very impressed with the condition of the premises, the functionality of everything (AppleTV, WiFi, Cable, treadmill, kitchen, laundry, bath/shower)--it's not uncommon for some of these utilities to be occasionally out, but not at Chad's.
While Chad and I spoke mostly English, Chad's Russian is exceptional. Для русских будет также уютно!
The location is about perfect--across the street from the Belorussky rail station (for ready access to Sheremetevo), radial and circle line metros, and 2 blocks from Tverskaya Street.
1. 30 seconds from one of the central metro stations of Moscow! Wow!
2. Free Wi-Fi
3. Really clean and recently renewed appartment
4. Chad speaks russian pretty good
I will definitely stay here again when I'll go back to Moscow!
Wow. What an insanely clean house. It literally reminds me of the "American" house smell, which is a great thing if you feel a bit homesick. Chad is always willing to extend a helping hand - he speaks Russian perfectly. Also, 1 minute from the metro and in a great area. Cant beat that!
Уважаемый Chad! Спасибо большое за гостеприимство! Всё очень понравилось!) Чисто, уютно, хорошо!!!! Остались очень довольны прибыванием у Вас!
Chad is an amazing host. He is very friendly, polite and private person. My staying in Chad’s place was really very pleasant. First because the flat is perfectly located: next to the metro Belorusskaya (1 minute walking from the apartment) and to the train station (very comfortable if you are coming from the airport), 30 min walking to the Kremlin, 3 min walking to the Tverskaya street (one of the main road) and the area is really well served (in two minutes you can easily reach Starbucks and others coffee bar, restaurants, supermarkets and even few pubs). Second the apartment is well refurnished (in occidental way), recently renewed and very clean (a cleaning lady comes one a week) and with all the facilities. The bedroom is large and bright (a spacious window overlooks the square), with a very comfortable bed, wide wardrobe, a desk and a functional chest of drawers. Staying there, was really a good and comfortable experience and If I would come back to Moscow again I’ll definitely go back to stay there!
Chad is a wonderful host, kind, helpful and easy-going. His apartment is clean and convenient, it's close to the metro and just minutes away from the Belorussky train station, which is fantastically convenient, if you plan to catch an aeroexpress train to the Sheremetyevo airport. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you may need. Restaurants and eateries are plenty and close by. And, last but not least, the price is absolutely unbeatable. We had a very pleasant stay.
Chad is very helpful and an interesting person.
The living room is very beautiful and very clean (housekeeping lade - check).
The room is about 16 sqm, quiet, with a comfy bed, desk and a large wardrobe. Just check the pictures, you get what you see! :)
Last but not least, this apartment is truly central with Belorusskaya metro stations literally 50 m away (think 5m Metro ride to Kreml 7m to Gorky park) from the house door. And the popular Tverskaya area starts at Belorusskaya, too.
I decided to stay a little longer - one month :)
So, I definitely recommend Chad and his apartment and considering Moscow hotel prices, this is a hell of a bargain!
I roomed with Chad for a few months. He is a great roommate, very clean, friendly, and a great cook (if you're nice, he may treat you to cuisines and dishes otherwise hardly available in Mosco). The location of the apartment is great, overlooking Belorusskaya station, and literally a 60 second walk from the station (great when it's raining and you don't have an umbrella). The apartment was recently renovated (less than a year ago), it has a western layout with connected kitchen and living room - which reinforces the fact of how spacious and comfortable it is. You can't go wrong here!
