Lonely Planet: "It is just that - a private, Soviet-era flat with a few extra rooms that Galina rents out. Galina gives travellers the rare opportunity to see inside a typical Russian home - indeed, to be welcomed in and to experience the life of a Muscovite. The close quarters also make it a good spot to hook up with other travellers"

Frommer's: "[Galina] provides the most intimate way of seeing Russian life. Clean though sometimes cramped, Galina's place is a favorite with travelers of all ages looking for personal sightseeing advice, late-night chats over tea, and a decidedly different view of Moscow from the impersonal hotel lobbies found elsewhere"
