When I was in Mykolayiv, you and your staff were partners in my experience. I had many requests, and everyone, especially Vladim, took care of me to a level that I could not have expected. The trip was amazing. The accommodations were more than ideal. The bed was big and soft. The kitchen was everything I needed. The air conditioner for a big man like me, was readily available and very helpful! Everyone was where they said they would be, every time I was given a schedule. This is a very professional operation, that I feel that Dmitri and his employees sincerely apply themselves to at any given requirement. I lost my keys...(gotoNikolaev) were there with new ones within 10 minutes. Seriously. I had questions about my gas service. Vladim was there to help me understand. You guys are great. Dmitri spoke with me professionally about the internet connection information and set me straight. How cool is it that, with all of this wonderful help, that my offer of marriage was accepted by the right lady. Whatever dreams there are, the roots are here in Nikolaev. Thanks for everything!
