Chura Nadzeya, Belorussia
"I used the Private WIFI router because during my stay at the hotel there were some problems with the Internet, and the hotel kindly offered the router to me".
Ellen Christina Santesson, Sweden
"PrivateWIFI is a useful and convenient service which I used during my stay."
Polak Ewa Marta, Poland
"We used the Private WIFI router to order a taxi in the city, moving from the museum to the restaurant, from the theater to the gift shop and back to the hotel. This turned out to be a very convenient option for us".
Monica Anita Scheer и her husband, Sweden
"Rented a router for our teenage children. Quick, convenient, and at any moment you can go to the website of the museum or restaurant and book a table if you did not have time to do it at the hotel, and check in with relatives by sending a couple of photos. It's not the first time I've spent a weekend in St. Petersburg, and every time I visit I use the PrivateWIFI service".
Tatjana Sipajeva with her family, Latvia
"I rented the router because I find using the local SIM card inconvenient, especially when you come to town for business and all the contacts are tied to your own SIM card. I even used the router in my hotel room sometimes because the hotel Wi-Fi signal was weak in the evenings during the busiest time."
Dorofejev Konstantin, a regular guest of one of the chain hotels, Russia.
