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
Hello, great apartment, close to city center. All what you need and does not want to carry long way from home is there: hair dryer, iron, ironing table, even sth to clean your shoes. I strongly recommend. Dominika
The apartment is very close to the metro and therefore has many amenities nearby. The host was charming and very helpful, arranged a pickup at Sheremetyevo back and forth for 70 € and was responsible for recording passports no extra cost (just the cost of stamp). We walked to the grocery store but it was 6 in the morning on arrival, indicating where it was better to find everything. The apartment does not lack anything, everything is very clean (except the appearance of the portal, pretty sloppy, but average on the outskirts of Moscow) and the room was much nicer than a hotel because it bought local products our trip a little Russian. Thank you very much Vladimir!
El apartamento está muy cerca del metro y por tanto tiene muchos servicios cercanos. El anfitrión fue encantador y muy servicial, nos organizó una recogida en Sheremetyevo ida y vuelta por 70 € y se encargó del registro de los pasaportes sin coste adicional (solo los costes del sello). Nos acompañó a hacer la compra aunque eran las 6 de la mañana a nuestra llegada, indicándonos dónde era mejor encontrar cada cosa. En el apartamento no falta de nada, todo está muy limpio (excepto el aspecto del portal de entrada, bastante descuidado, pero normal en la periferia de Moscú) y la estancia fue mucho más agradable que en un hotel, pues comprábamos productos locales para que nuestro viaje fuera un poco más ruso.
Muchas gracias Vladimir!!
the flat is a jewel. near metro station and supermarket in ten minutes you can really reach the very center of Moscow. Vladimir is a very good homeowner. if you need information you can ask him without problem.
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.
Fijn appartemen met een Host die goed bereikbaar is en afspraken nakomt
El apartamento esta en muy buen sitio, cerca del metro. El apartamento tenia todo lo necesario para tener una estancia muy cómoda. Lo recomiendo sin duda. El apartamento es tal como se muestra en las fotos.
