Unless money is really your concern, I would not recommend this place. First of all, there is no flexibility with check-in time, we were told that there is a penalty fee of 10€/hr (which is not stated on the posting, but she privately messages you on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) - to protect yourself, try to keep it to Airbnb messaging) if we check-in earlier or later than 1pm. Therefore, we arrived 5 minutes ahead of time, but ended up waiting in the 40 degrees Celsius heat with our luggage, for ONE hour. Olga did not respond to our messages or calls until we called Airbnb, who contacted Olga. The lady who was supposed to meet us actually lives minutes away as we bumped into her a few times, but not sure why she ended up an hour late. Neither the lady or Olga seemed to care or be apologetic for the delay. Olga does not know any English at all, so be prepared to use translation app. The place is very different from the photos posted. The place is a little worn out, dusty, towels are not in the best condition, bed sheets smells. The shower sliding door is missing so you have to be very careful when taking shower. The hairdryer is very dusty that I ended up not touching it. Flushing the toilet sounds like launching a rocket (as my husband describes). There is no air conditioning, just a fan, so be prepared to sweat. There is a fridge though, so just fill it with bottles of water to chill yourself. There is no lock to your room so make sure you bring a lock for your luggage. There is no elevator, so we had to carry our luggage up the stairs to 2nd floor. Be prepared to use flashlight because the hallway/stairwell light times out after some time, so you might lose the lighting before you get to the apartment door. There might be some sudden loud random noise (hammering?) coming from the floor below that vibrates the whole room, so don't freak out. Location wise, there isn't much around the area. The train station is about 10 minutes walk away. If you decided to book this place...good luck and have fun!

Olga was very nice and friendly in person but we had some problems with the suite that left us having to find new accommodation almost immediately. I don't want to dispel anyone from staying here but there are some things that are unlisted about the space that people should know before they book it. First of all if you are allergic to cats do not book the space. Olga says that her cat stays out of the room but based on my asthma attack and sneezing fits I can guarantee that the cat has spent time in the room. I probably should have asked ahead of time due to my sensitivity but I figured the cat would be mentioned in the listing. Second, the suite is in a beautiful older building and as old buildings go they have old pipes/plumbing and sometimes have a bad smell. To cover this smell, the apartment is filled with fragrances including potpourri, oil diffusers, plug ins and more but to the point that it is too much. If you are sensitive to smells it will leave you with a headache. I was fine with it but for my friend it was way too much so she wanted me to include it in this review. Lastly, the wifi signal is very weak to the point that you can only access it from the hallway. It should also be noted that Olga was quite late to meet us at our prearranged time and left us standing in the rain for over 40 minutes. She seemed quite unapologetic about this when we sent our follow up messages to try to figure out where she was... then she sent her very young son to meet us who could not answer any questions about the suite. Up to this point I've had only amazing experiences with airbnb and love the service, but this was not the case in this apartment. These things were issues for us but hopefully they won't be issues for others who choose to stay here.

Olga is very friendly and welcoming! Though we didn't know any of the languages Olga knew, we were still able to communicate without any issues using hand gestures and expressions. Her place is very nicely decorated with a private entrance, mini fridge, our own bathroom (shampoo and towels all included). The location is also superb! Only minutes away from the central market and we were able to walk to all the main attractions and amazing restaurants! The WiFi could be a bit stronger but we were still able to research what we needed. Overall, we were really happy with our stay, thanks Olga!

The location is close to the center. You can reach all sights on foot easily. Friendly host (communication was not that easy but we have made it) nice apartment (not perfect but good for the price)

Super cozy room in a good location. Pretty close to a cool public market and to the central train station. Olga was very nice and responsive to messages and queries. Highly reccomended.

Great location, super close to the city center. No elevator and very difficult stairs to climb to get to the second floor. The room is not dirty but it seems neglected, old and unsupervised. It's safe and the neighbors seemed nice. The bed is not comfortable and the bathroom door doesn't seem to close properly. Could be better. I would redecorate to make it seem cleaner and simpler.
