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 was... More

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 fears in my old age. I figured... More

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... More

Don't over expected, this is a budget friendly place with decent amenities nothing exceptional. Good points about the hotel: 1) Close to Tverskaya Street. 2) Place was clean and basic toiletries were provided. 3) Rooms were properly heated. 4) Convenience store and decent restaurants closeby. Things we didn't like: 1) It is a bit of walk from the metro station... More

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 to young tourists and backpackers.

My sister and I really enjoyed our stay at Moscow. Vanilla bnb is small place with 4 rooms. All rooms are for 2 people, so it's not overcrowded like with other hostels. The staff is very friendly, our room was tidy and comfortable, very clean and big. Area is very safe even in the night. It's surprising that shops in... More

Shabby rooms, poorly upkept (though spotlessly clean!) Breakfast consists of make your own with stuff left in the kitchen (not at all made clear upon booking). Location excellent - but consider what you can get by staying even a mile or so further out before booking to stay here. Also, the person looking after the B&B refused us paying by... More

Nice and quiet location, although hard to find (no signs). English speaking staff. Free wifi (reasonable fast). Includes breakfast, but only toast with butter and coffee/tea. Shared bathroom, toilet and kitchen. It's possible to wash clothes.

Great location, very safe area, close to main street Tverskaya. Clean room and very big. Bathroom is clean too, has everything you need. I like the idea of self-made breakfast in the morning. Internet stoped couple of times, but overall its good.

Moscow has changed a lot in the past few years. After my last trip here in 2008 I should admit that it is much more modern now. I traveled with business purposes, but wanted to stay in the center as it's very convenient. Vanilla bnb opened 2 years ago, so it's new and fresh. I chose it because of spacious... More

Staying in Patriarch Ponds

Neighborhood Profile
Patriarch Ponds
When you need to hide from the city’s noise and traffic but don’t want to stroll too far, Patriarch Ponds is the place to be. Calm water, friendly swans and ducks with beautiful early 20th century architecture in the background make this neighborhood a place you’ll never want to leave. Besides stylish bars and restaurants scattered in the streets around the pond, you’ll be able to enjoy museum life from modern art to a former private apartment of Mikhail Bulgakov. As most of the businesses are open late, stop for a cocktail and then stroll by the pond to rent a boat and row yourself to the middle of the “bowl” as the locals call it.
