Don't let you scare off too easily by the comments about the cleanliness. Galina's flat doesn't offer the 'grand luxe', but is cleaned very frequently. Highly recommended if you really want to get to know Moscow and even some fellow travellers!

I loved staying here. Galina is really kind and helpful. The flat is about 30 minutes walk from red square and is small and homely. However I can't rate it too highly as it isn't very clean, but next time I'm in Moscow I will no doubt stay with Galina again.
Beside the sowiet style of the flat - which is in fact an experience - we didn't like our stay here. Flat Owner Galina wasn't really a hospitable person. I missed some nice chattings and secret hints, what to do in Moscow. And it was the first time we had to put linen (which were even too short) on the bed by ourselfs in a hostel. No problem with cats, but the whole stairway were smelling and the cats didn't look healthy at all. Seems like the owner got bored of having guests since a while.
We only stayed for one night, but it´s a really nice place, with very freindly staff. The flat is located really near to the city centre. So all in all, a really nice place to stay when you are visting Moscow and dont need the comfort of an hotel.
It is actually flat of a woman. She speaks English very well and she is helpful if needed. Price reflects on cleanliness or security. Cats are very nice there but it could be a problem if you got an allergy. Flat is soviet union style and it was a nice experience to be there.
Galina's flat, it's a flat on the higher floor, no lift, in Soviet era style. Do not expect much but Galina's it's wounderfull and very helpfull. Don't forget the key of the flat. So you are indipendent . Xxxx
Ok for one night! The cats are lovely but make breathing a little difficult. The kitchen facilities are on the poor side and don't invite one to cook for themselves. Atmosphere is dependant on other guests, during our stay it was quiet to the point of feeling weird. Otherwise the price and the location is fine and all respect to Galina herself!
Mrs. Galina is a lovely and kind lady. She is always willing to help. The flat is clean, it´s a great accomodation for the tired trtaveler. I will return to her flat nex time I travel to Moscow. Thank you Mrs. Galina

Galina was amazingly helpful and very kind. As long as you're ready to stay in a place with a lot of cats, you'll love it there!
Galina's was a true stay at home - experience; comfortable, cosy, enjoyable and easy. Galina herself was very helpfull and everything worked well. If you are looking for a genuine russian home, this is your place! We defintely recommend it.
