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
The building is placed in a magnificent spot, which results very confortable to reach walking the most important touristic places in Moscow, as for example:

Reviews for this host's other properties
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

Very nicely appointed, very-very clean. Convenient by car or subway.
Friendly and accommodating owner/manager.
We had a trip to Moscow on May for 4 days and the luck to find this apartment. Vladimir was a really great host. He picked up from Airport, Explained and Organised a lot of things which always reachable for questions and other things. Thanks again!
The apartment was as expected clean and Exactly The Same like the description. The way to minibus and metro is easy to find and i think it takes Approximately 45 minutes to be Directly in the city. By the way - Moscow is a wonderful city.
I would recommend this appartment unconditionally.
We stayed in May for 4 days in Moscow and were lucky to find this apartment. Vladimir was a great host. He picked us up from the airport after consultation explains a lot of things and organized (even a German-language Moscow map !!) He was always available for questions or other concerns.
The apartment was exactly as advertised and the reviews before clean and the pictures / descriptions entprechend. The road into town is easy to find with the minibus and Metro (Vladimir sends also illustrated with Directions). It takes about 45 minutes. until you are in the middle of the city. Danz way - Moscow is worth the trip !!
Thanks again to Vladimir

Wir waren im Mai für 4 Tage in Moskau und hatten das Glück dieses Appartment zu finden. Vladimir war ein großartiger Gastgeber. Er hat uns nach vorheriger Rücksprache vom Flughafen abgeholt, viele Sachen erklärt und organisiert (sogar eine deutschsprachige Moskau Karte!! ) Er war jederzeit erreichbar für Fragen oder andere Belange.
Das Appartment war genauso wie beschrieben und den Bewertungen davor sauber und den Bildern / Beschreibungen entprechend. Der Weg in die Stadt ist einfach mit dem Minibus und Metro zu finden ( Vladimir schickt auch bebilderte Wegbeschreibung mit). Es dauert ca 45 min. bis man mitten in der Stadt ist. Danz nebenbei - Moskau ist eine Reise wert!!
Vielen Dank nochmal an Vladimir
We left at 4: 2 adults, 2 children.
Here are our good impressions:
Vladimir is a very good breakfast, very helpful staff who has sent us messages during our stay to see if everything went well.
-His wife Oksana is very nice also
-The apartment is very spacious, 2 large bedrooms and 1 other in the living room.
Apartment very clean and quiet.
Vladimir can also offer transfer from the airport to the apartment. It takes 50eur.
We advise you to transfer at least to go because I have to admit that we would have had trouble finding the apartment.
Here are a few negative points:
Is missing a double curtain in the master bedroom
-To get to the station nearest metro Vyhino, take a bus (888, 501) and costs 33 rubles per person (free for children under 6) or a white mini bus (888 -501) and costs 42 rubles.
The advantage is that the bus runs every 5mins.
Below must take the subway to get to the center City.bu all, it takes about 1 hour away. It must be recognized that for 1 couple with young children that's a lot.
Otherwise no complaints.
Nous sommes partis à 4 : 2 adultes , 2 enfants.
Voici nos bonnes impressions:
-Vladimir est un très bon hote,très serviable qui nous a envoyé des messages pendant notre séjour pour voir si tout se passait bien.
-sa femme Oksana est très gentille également
-l'appartement est très spacieux,2 grandes chambres et 1 autre dans le salon.
-appartement très propre et calme.
-Vladimir peut vous proposer également le transfert entre l'aéroport et l'appartement.Il faut compter 50eur.
-nous vous conseillons de prendre le transfert au moins pour l'aller car je dois reconnaitre que nous aurions eu du mal à trouver l'appartement.
Voici les quelques points négatifs:
-il manque un double rideau dans la chambre parentale
-pour se rendre à la station de métro la plus proche Vyhino,il faut prendre un bus (le 888-le 501) au tarif de 33 roubles par personne (gratuit pour les enfants de moins de 6ans) ou un mini bus blanc (888-501) au tarif de 42 roubles.
L'avantage est que le bus passe toutes les 5mns.
-après il faut prendre le métro pour se rendre au centre ville.En tout ,il faut compter environ 1h de trajet .Il faut reconnaitre que pour 1 couple avec de jeunes enfants cela fait beaucoup.
Sinon rien à redire.
Stayed 4 days in Moscow Vladimir's apartment and it was a wonderful stay. Besides the city is amazing, keep in mind that poses difficulties all signs are in Cyrillic. So it helps that Vladimir offer you a taxi or take you or bring it to the airport, the apartment is very comfortable and with details like a beer, tea, sugar and jacuzzi.
Vladimir is an excelent host. The apartment is very nice, modern and comfortable. I have help you in all you need. You have Near Metro and a supermarket 24 hours.
Estuvimos 4 días en Moscú en el apartamento de Vladimir y fue una estancia maravillosa. Además de que la ciudad es sorprendente, hay que tener en cuenta que plantea dificultades que todos los carteles estén en cirílico. Así ayuda mucho que Vladimir te ofrezca un taxi o el mismo te lleve o traiga del aeropuerto, que el apartamento sea muy confortable y con detalles como una cerveza, té, azúcar y jacuzzi.
Vladimir is an excelent host. The apartment is very nice, modern and confortable. He help you in all you need. Near you have metro and a supermarket 24 hours.
