We did not notify the owner about our time of arrival, and were left wondering on the streets for half an hour where the B&B was until we asked someone from a cafe where it was and they told us it was next to the art gallery. There is no sign on the door, no way of telling it

I booked this place for an overnight as I had a 22 hr layover in Moscow. I wanted a place that was clean and comfortable and would not give me any fear of bedbugs or robbery. I intentionally stopped staying at hostels years ago (I.e. When I turned 30) due to these developing

Response from Vanilla b, Manager at Vanilla Bed and Breakfast

Dear guest, I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. It's always sad to us to read negative experiences. Especially if we do our best to make you happy. Our location is easy to find for most of the guests, we're 5 minutes from metro and very detailed directions with photos are sent by email. The cafe next door to us opened few weeks ago and they might not know about us. You also had our phone. Though most Russians speak bad English, they are always happy to help you and make a call to ask where we are located. Then you say that we are a hostel which is not true. The hostel has rooms with bunk beds for many people, and we have never had those and will never have. Maybe you misunderstood the whole concept of bed and breakfast - it's a private house where you rent a room and share bathroom. We don't have reception (you don't need it for 4 rooms) as it's not a formal, business oriented place, but we've got a very homey and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast is muesli with milk, yogurt, bread with butter and tea/coffee. Available at any time. That's also in description. For 5-7 USD you can enjoy hot breakfast in the cafe nearby, if you don't like ours. Your review shows that you were in a bad mood, very tired and you couldn't enjoy anything at all. I understand that it's very exhausting to come in the evening, check-in, then go sightseeing and depart to airport in the morning. Hope next time you're here with good vision, tell the staff that you want a glass of water, or that you're tired and don't want to chat etc. We're very positive and friendly. Good luck.

Although Moscow is very big, businesslike city, it has places like Vanilla with home atmosphere and friendly staff. As a designer I liked combination of old antique furniture with simple IKEA items. In this place it's easy to relax after long day in town. I recommend this place

"Room 1 and 2 face the street and it's very sunny in the morning. Room 3 and 4 face the yard, so it's less noisy."
"I think that all 4 rooms they have are with double beds, so it's mostly for couples."
"Rooms 1 & 4 for best wifi reception."
"If you want to arrive early in the morning please notify them by email in advance."
"Room 2 has got TV, but it's called superior so it's a little bit more expensive, only Russian channels, but MTV was quite entertaining."
