We stayed in Ilina's apartment for 30 days and for a long stay this place is perfect. It has many more amenities than is described on the listing. The washing machine has a drying mode and the kitchen has a dishwasher, drying rack for clothes, toaster, kettle, microwave and plenty of dishes to use. The apartment is very new, clean and cozy. Two heaters and air conditioning were more than enough to keep the apartment warm. There is a home phone for local calls. WiFi internet with good connection. We enjoyed the "Smart TV" which we were able to watch our favorite shows on YouTube. On the first floor is a very good dentist whom we used for our dental care. A short walk takes you to grocery stores, farmer's markets, bakery, gas station, pharmacies, hair salons, cafe's, fashion shops, restaurants with great food and low prices. The bus stops are near that take you downtown or to the main bus station and train station. If you choose to walk downtown, you will see many shops on the way and it doesn't take long until you are there. Ilina provided us telephone numbers to call taxis or order take-out food for home delivery. There is another grocery store a five minute walk away that provides cooked ready to eat food for take out. The neighborhood is quiet. The building is new with security controlled entrance, two lifts and nice and quiet neighbors.
Ilina speaks a few languages and was an amazing host, young, intelligent and positive person, very honest, polite and responded to all of our needs. She was always accessible by phone and email and did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. She even left us food to eat and let us use everything in her home. We are very thankful for her hospitality and highly recommend this apartment rental to everyone!
