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

Reviews of this property
Joli petit appartement situé proche de la rue piétonne de la vieille ville, appartement propre avec tous conforts
Seul petit bémol, la baignoire jacuzzi ne fonctionnait pas
Vous pouvez reserver sans autre cet appartement et le logeur peut aussi vous faire le voucher touristique demandé pour le visa
Apartment large and spacious for a couple. The photos are representing the rooms very truly. We always travel abroad for work and so far this is one of the best flats we ever rented. It's a great location, in the very center of Moscow. A few minutes from a supermarket, a metro station, Arbat, ... Only we choose it also because of the jacuzzi where to relax after a working day but it didn't work. And two kitchen doors had to be repaired
An apartment very well located close to the center, as it was marked, helpful and polite host. Plains shops and restaurants nearby. Only downside: sofa which is not really comfortable. Bernard de Paris.
Un appartement très bien situé tout près de centre, comme c'était marqué, un hôte serviable et polie. Plains commerces et restaurants à coté. Seul bémol: canapé qui n'est pas vraiment confortable. Bernard de Paris.
The apartment is in a perfect location, security is certainly good gewährleistet.Die Street is a quiet side street about 200 meters from the Old Arbat Street, about 400 from Smolenskaya Metro Station, 30 minute walk to the Kremlin.
Vladimir is hilfsbereit.Die apartment is very clean in winter with central heating a little too warm, as it does not regulate the heating kann.Die apartment offers all the comforts to be similar at home to fühlen.Im contrast to the clean apartment is the scruffy staircase for that comes to probably no tenants or flat owners responsible fühlt.Also not scare the apartment is the apartment Quite the contrary one enters with a inner door then upon entering the staircase actually Wohnungstür.Diese door is so stable, the man opened using human power impossible or destroy So could absolute certainty.
A Russian mobile phone card you can get at Vladimir, these are vorrättig next to the phone in front of the apartment .. In this connection one can in Moscow calls or calls from abroad erhalten.Das WiFi works very fast.
So in total the moscow conditions adequates price-performance ratio.
Die Wohnung liegt in einer perfekten Lage,die Sicherheit ist sicherlich gut gewährleistet.Die Strasse ist eine ruhige Nebenstrasse etwa 200m von der alten Arbat Strasse,ca.400 vom U-Bahnhof Smolenskaya,30 Gehminuten zum Kreml.
Wladimir ist hilfsbereit.Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber im Winter bei zentraler Heizung etwas zu warm,da man die Heizung nicht regulieren kann.Die Wohnung bietet allen Komfort um sich ähnlich wie zu hause zu fühlen.Im Gegensatz zur sauberen Wohnung ist das ungepflegte Treppenhaus für das sich wohl kein Mieter oder Wohnungsbesitzer verantwortlich fühlt.Also beim betreten des Treppenhauses nicht erschrecken die Wohnung ist das Gegenteil.Die Wohnung betritt man mit einer Vortür dann kommt die eigentlich Wohnungstür.Diese Tür ist so stabil das mann diese mit Menschenkraft unmöglich öffnen oder zerstören könnte also absolute Sicherheit ist gegeben.
Eine russische Mobiltelefon Karte kann man bei Vladimir bekommen,diese liegen vorrättig neben dem Telefon der Wohnung vor..Bei diesen Anschluss kann man in Moskau Anrufen oder Anrufe aus dem Ausland erhalten.Das WLAN funktioniert sehr Schnell.
Also ingesamt den moskauer Verhältnissen adequates Preis-Leistungsverhältniss.
when I walked into the apartment of Vladimir I marveled at how it seemed to me that everything I was familiar! environment, accomodation, peace, silence, comfort and location have been a pleasant stay!
When we arrived at Moscow airoport, Vladimir met us by his comfortable minibus.
The flat was comfortable, we had all we needed and the most important everything was close to us: the OLD ARBAT (main street), Red Square, Supermarkets.
We enjoyed our stay at Vladimir´' splace. As a person he is very pleasant and helpful. We recommend himand his appartment to everyone!
