It was fabulous living in the heart of Moscow with all the sites, restaurants and shopping literally at the doorstep of this well maintained apartment. The expansive view from the apartment of the twinkling lights of lovely pedestrian Kamergerskiy street.was magical.
The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. This worked very well for our family of three. The beds were very comfortable especially after a full day of enjoying "the neighborhood" i.e. the Kremlin and its museums, Bolshoi, Hotel Metropole, GUM, many theaters, lovey new park,underground shopping mall, etc. What a thrill it was to walk out of the apartment block and see beautiful Red Square. It truly is an easy 5 minute walk from the apartment - even for senior citizens.
The kitchen was great for preparing breakfast and a couple of meals. There's a large grocery store within the block and a gorgeous gourmet grocery is just up the street and a small market is within the apartment building. Having a full-sized refrigerator and freezer, gas stove and microwave were real bonuses for those who like to cook. .
Even though the location is THE most desirable in Moscow the apartment was very quiet with no street noise when the windows were closed. But on gorgeous sunny days we were able to open the windows and enjoy the breeze. One day was hot and humid - the air conditioning worked extremely well.
We felt very safe in the building as there is a keypad lock into the building and 24 hour staff at the reception desk. The elevator was very efficient and modern.
The large washing machine and drying rack made doing laundry easy.
Enjoy Moscow was excellent to work with. Rick answered our many questions about obtaining visas and registrations, etc. It was very helpful to have a driver meet us at the train station when we arrived and then take us to the airport. as the metro has many steps and small turnstiles. Simone, who met us at the apartment, was very professional, answered questions and obtained registrations efficiently.
This was our first trip to Moscow and we were enchanted with it's beauty and sophistication. This apartment made the experience of living in the heart of Moscow perfect..
The apartment is very comfortable, modern,and situated at the very center of Moscow. It can't get any better. 2 min from Red Square. All shopping, Metro, grocery stores are next door. Definitely, the place to stay in Moscow. The host was exceptionally welcoming and thoughtful.
This apartment is located in a perfect location! It is closed to all the tourist spots, metro station and restaurants! you can find many restaurants just when you go down! loads of choices in reasonable price! They open till late so it is very convenience. There are still many people in the street so you would feel safe.
you can walk to Red square and the famous spots within a few minutes! Perfect for tourists! You can also take metro easily, no matter to aeroexpress or transit for the train. What's more, this area is rather safe! It is important for tourists too.
There are also quite a lot of money exchanges nearby. Wonderful!
Next, the communication is wonderful too. Rick would reply you quickly and try to offer his best help to us. He cares about us and try to think of the best solution for us in everything. His action is quick and efficient. Thanks a lot! He is a honest guy. His assistant Simon is helpful too. Even though he can't speak English too well, he tried his best to help us when we arrived. When we can't find the entrance, he found us to take us there. (indeed the entrance is easy to find. we were not smart enough only) he also showed us where we could buy food.
The building entrance has a lady to look after. When she needs to go away from her position, she would lock the main door in the building. We feel safe with her. At least strange won't enter the building. She is also nice and friendly.
The room looks the same as in the photos. Clean and comfortable. There are air con in the living room and the bedroom. Very good for the hot weather.
The bed is comfortable but the pillow might be a bit too flat.
Most things are offered.
The room is bigger than hotel room with kitchen. We didn't cook inside while there are too many nice restaurants nearby.
Having washing machine and big hanger is handy. (I suggest not to use iron mode for the washing machine, it would take very long to finish the process. Sun mode is better)
We didn't use the water boiler because it wasn't perfectly clean. We use a pot to boil water instead. It isn't a big issue for us.
the hot water supply is stable and strong.
Wifi connection is stable.
There is a lift inside the building but you need to walk for a few step of staircases outdoor to reach the building. While we just have the heavy luggage on the first and last day, it doesn't matter much.
There are also 2 small shops for drinks and snacks under the building. If necessary, you can buy something suddenly too.
The price of the apartment is reasonable. I would surely stay at Rick's apartment again when I return to Moscow. I also would highly recommend my friends to stay there too! You won't feel regret if you choose this apartment! I feel lucky to have found apartment when I planned to visit Moscow!
Just next door to the Red Square! Felt like staying at the Four Seasons without breaking our budget. Moscow is a huge place, but staying at Rick's condo-hotel made Moscow's attractions closer than you thought. Walkable to almost every place. Safe, clean, nice location. The Owner Rick, and his Manager, Sergie were very helpful when my luggage got delayed by Aeroflot. Thanks guys!
Perfect location as described 100 mtres Red Square.
On the corner of main road and popular walking street, which has outdoor restaurants, music, market stalls in warm weather.
5 minute walk to Metro with 3 lines and large shopping mall with food court, supermarket, fancy shops
Around the corner from Bolshoi
Loads of fancy shops in surrounding area, like Jimmy Choo, Van Cleeefs etc etc
Apartment is as in photos with nice decor, comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean
All ammenites provided to cook simple food.
Two large TVs with comfy lounge providing good viewing. Could not get english channels but they may have been blocked. We used our lap top to stream movies to TV
Building entrance is easy and halls clean and bright.
Room is very quiet, but has large windows opening onto views of Kamergsky St, so you can watch the Moscovites stroll along.
There is AC but we did not use it
Washer dryer combo is very useful, meaning you can pack less clothes and wash often
Shower is hot and strong.My only slight critism is the shower head needs to be wedged into place and that means it sprays the vanity and stuff stored on it.
Bed huge and quality with high quality quilt and pillows
Rick was good to deal with and commumicated well, and accomodated our early check in and airport transfer for a reasonable price. Assistance from Segei and Simon helpful and welcoming
We really enjoyed our stay and would recomend staying here.
