Alexey is in fact working with a hotell and not the owner of an apartment as the listing would lead you to believe.
At the arrival he was not there, he did not answer my messages or gave any hint as to where I should go or how to proceed. I started to suspect foul play and went to ask the hotel receptionist. I showed here a picture of Alexey and asked if she knew the man. She did and told me he was working with them through a booking company. She had no idea we were coming and no booking was made. She managed to contact him and they worked things out. She was also surprised we got the room so cheap since it was supposed to cost more for to persons.
The hotel personel was very nice and I would love to stay there again. Very nice restaurant next door I strongly recommend visiting.
However, I will not use or recommend using Alexey as your agent for the stay.
