Attractive spotless wooden chalets with lovely new bathrooms and fridge provided in each, plus some basic cups/plates etc. Friendly owner who tried as hard with his few words of English as we tried with our even fewer words of Russian. We managed to communicate anyway! Peaceful, convenient location, good for pretty walks along the lanes and river in Suzdal, 10... More

In a peaceful area, walking distance to all the main sites. Needs better directions on the website. We ended up at the back gate which was locked and no sign on it to say where to go, i.e. through the monastery. The owner doesn't speak English, but we managed with the help of google translate to understand each other.

Our stay in this simplistic "izba" house would be idyllic if not for extra charges and annoyances that kept popping up. The rooms had all the cutlery and glassware, except for the most essential – the teakettle. To boil water and have your own coffee or tea you have to order a 100-ruble teapot (a fantastic markup on a teabag!).... More

Wi-fi is fast and free, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Definitely will stay here when we... More

We had a great stay here, we were in a junior "suite" which was a very spacious room decorated in traditional Russian country house style and had lovely views of the monastery. There is a nice garden space joining the houses which would be good for children, and the breakfast was cheap and tasty, served in a nice dining room.... More
