(The Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel is about this association).
In 2013, Anya was named the world's best young concierge, and in 2015, she was named Moscow's best concierge. She has worked both with run-of-the-mill tourists and celebrities, as well as regular guests, organising unique experiences for each one of them, or hiring the best colleagues from around the world, opening doors that tend to be closed to most people.
