The Old Arbat is a picturesque pedestrian street in Moscow, running west from Arbat Square (which is part of the Boulevard Ring) towards Smolenskaya Square (which is part of the Garden Ring). In the 18th century, the Arbat came to be regarded by the Russian nobility as the most prestigious living area in Moscow. The street was almost completely destroyed by the great fire during Napoleon's occupation of Moscow in 1812 and had to be rebuilt. Alexander Pushkin lodged in one of its mansions for a short time, and there is a statue of him and his wife, Natalie, in front of this house.
Since 1986, the Arbat has been dotted with distinctive street lanterns. It has several notable statues, including one to Princess Turandot in front of the Vakhtangov Theatre and another to Soviet-era folk singer, bard, and poet, Bulat Okudzhava, who wrote several poignant songs about the Arbat. During Perestroika, the street was a gathering place for informal youth movements (like hippies or punks), as well as street musicians and artists. Viktor Tsoi's wall in one of the Arbat side-streets (Krivoarbatskiy Pereulok) remains a curious monument to those turbulent years. To this day, Russian youth frequently gather on the Arbat to play the songs of Tsoi and other Russian songwriters.
The Arbat is home to the headquarters of oil company TNK-BP - a modern building at the beginning of the street. It also contains numerous restaurants, including The Hard Rock Cafe

Die Wohnung in Moskau hat uns sehr gefallen, die Lage ist super nur 5 Gehminuten zum Roter Platz, auch zum Metro und Einkaufen nur paar Minuten.
Die Wohnung war sauber und alles da was man braucht. Wladimir war immer hilfsbereit unser Fragen zur beantworten. Gerne wieder und zu weiter zur empfehlen. Danke für schöner Aufenthalt!
The clean and spacious, excellent to walk to the Kremlin and near metro location, there is a "spectacular" supermarket opposite to the apartment across the street. The jacuzzi is not working.
El apartamento limpio y espacioso, localización inmejorable para ir andando al Kremlin y cerca de parada de metro, hay un supermercado"espectacular" frente al apartemento cruzando la calle. El jacuzzi no funciona.
Vladimir is a very pleasant man and he is quite Professional. The flat and everything is top level. Luxury, very well decorated, very central...Those few days were a dream and it was very nice to get back0 this beautiful flat to have a rest after walking in Moscow. My eighty old father keeps saying : "if I still live a little bit more I will come back to Vladirmir's". As for me I am very happy having chosen that flat and I highly recommend it !!!! In addition to that I thought I would have found hostile people because the international crisis between East and West and people were very friendly...Two guys in the street even took us in their car to lead us to Air France officies as we couldn't find them !!!! I celebrated my 50 th birthday over there and I will keep this in my mind and heart as a very
Очень понравилась квартира. Уютная и чистая. Всё необходимое всегда было под рукой. Мне и моей девушке понравилось и если мы опять приедем в Москву, то обязательно остановимся в этой квартире.

ES un matrimonio encantador, son muy serios pero muy educados.
La casa esta genial, muy bien cuidada y decorada.Esta muy cerca de la plaza roja, nosotras ibamos andando dando un paseito.
Salimos muy contentas con el matromonio, con la casa y la distancias.
Merece la pena

Аппартаменты очень хорошо расположены. 10 минут до Кремля пешком, 3 минуты до метро Пушкинская, и 1 минута до остановки автобуса.
В аппартаментах очень - очень чисто и крсиво и они супер оснащены всем необходимым. Владимир очень приятный человек. Еще, он организует трансфер аэропорт туда-обратно по приятной цене. Мы провели супер отдых в Москве. Наша оценка 5 звезд!!!
Great Apartment, Great ubición just 15 minute walk from Red Square and 5 subway, and very good treatment of the owners. Yes, the extra single bed is terrible, and curtains are missing all over the floor because when amance in too much light and is impossible to sleep.
Fantástico apartamento, fantástica ubición a tan solo 15 minutos a pie de la Plaza Roja y a 5 del metro, y muy buen trato de los dueños. Eso sí, la cama supletoria individual es malísima, y se echan en falta cortinas en todo el piso por que cuando amance entra demasiada luz y es imposible dormir.
The apartment is almost perfect. It was completely clean, with whathever we needed and perfectly comunicated (very close to the metro and train stations). Vladimir was very kind and always available for any problem. We strongly recommend this flat for anybody interested to spend some days or weeks in Moscu
I can recommend the apartment to anyone. Although Vladimir himself was not there, but it all worked smoothly. The communication beforehand by e-mail was great. The apartment is large, modern and comfortable, everything you need is available. The apartment is right near 3 train stations, which was ideal for us as we traveled from St. Petersburg by train. The metro is so fast that one is in the city center just around the corner. We were six people and had a pleasant stay in Moscow. We were completely satisfied and would come again.
Ich kann die Wohnung nur jedem weiter empfehlen. Vladimir selber war zwar nicht da, aber es hat alles reibungslos geklappt. Auch die Kommunikation vorher per E-Mail war top.
Die Wohnung ist groß, modern und komfortabel eingerichtet, alles nötige ist vorhanden. Die Wohnung ist gleich in der Nähe von 3 Bahnhöfen, was für uns ideal war, da wir von Sankt Petersburg mit dem Zug angereist sind.
Auch die Metro ist gleich um die Ecke, so dass man schnell in der Innenstadt ist.
Wir waren sechs Personen und hatten einen angenehmen Aufenthalt in Moskau. Wir waren rundum zufrieden und würden wieder kommen.
