One the best places I've stayed. Nikita has done an amazing job to create a place that really feels like a home. She's very friendly, responsive, and patient. Location is practically on top of Guting metro station, where 2 different lines run from. Easy to go in and out and lockers for valuables. Highlight for me was definitely the yoga room (!). Slippers are worn inside and towel/soap/Shampoo are provided. No complaints! Thanks Nikita 😊
