The most famous street in Moscow lies to the West of the Kremlin, where its 1.25 km span stretches from ploshchad Arbatskaya to ploshchad Smolenskaya. It is one of the oldest roads in the city and was first mentioned as early as 1493, in connection with a fire that started here in the Church of St. Nicholas.
Originally a suburb where traders from the East would arrive with their caravans, in the 18th Century the Arbat became popular with Moscow’s intelligentsia and artistic community, who enjoyed frequenting the many cafes and taking strolls along the area’s mansion-lined boulevards. Pushkin himself lived here with his wife in house number 53 (the building has since been turned into a museum dedicated to the poet) and Tolstoy resided on the adjoining Kaloshin Lane. In fact Count Fyodor was said to have modelled his famous character Anna Karenina on Maria Gartung - Pushkin’s oldest daughter, who also lived nearby.
The construction of the modern highway (the Nowy Arbat) in the 1960s relegated the old Arbat from being one of Moscow’s key arteries to the role of sleepy back-water. Since it was no longer needed as a transport route, in the 1980s the way was paved for the Arbat to be made a pedestrian street, in which incarnation it has enjoyed a new lease of life as a tourist attraction. Maybe the legendary writers of the past no longer drink their coffee here, but a host of mime artists, soap-box poets, souvenir shops (check out Novikh Russkikh Mir) and art stalls evoke a decidedly bohemian atmosphere that can still inspire. The plentiful cafes and eateries selling delicious food fares from around the globe add a dash of flavour - and the picturesque pastel facades of the houses a splash of colour - to ensure that few tourists leave the Arbat disappointed.
For a decidedly different picture of Moscow walk to the western end of the Arbat to see the imposing towers of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building. One of Stalin’s so called Seven Sisters, it has all the charm with which you associate Soviet Russia!

Whilst our stay was comfortable, I would share the comments of some others about the noise coming for the night club in the street below. If you like to have the bedroom window open at night, you will be disturbed by the loud music and noise from people in the street well into the early hours. I also think the blinds in the main room need to come all the way down when you are using it as a bedroom so that you can have greater privacy. And a shower curtain in the bathroom would be a great addition. Overall we we were satisfied but I consider this to be basic standard of accommodation.
It is very good apartment if you don't pay attention to small flaws like there is no shower current, no shampoo...
Location is awesome!
Dmitriy is a good host, there was a small problem with apartment being ready on time, he fixed it fast.
En contact regulier avant notre arrivee avec Dmitriy nous avons eu un changement de derniere minute d'appartement. Nous etions 4 et ducoup les couchages etaient inadaptes
Personne a part la concierge ne parlant que le russe a l'accueil.
Durant le sejour nous avons eu des problemes d'eau.
Malgre tout l'appartement etait tres bien situe.
Absolutely amazing apartment in the heart of historic old-Arbat district. I greatly enjoyed staying there.
Great apartment, very clean, brilliant location. The host was very friendly and communicated excellently. One problem which is outside his control - the shopping mall opposite plays really loud music all day which can be pretty disturbing if you're planning to spend time in the place during the daytime.
Очень часто езжу в Москву по делам.Очень часто останавливаюсь в квартирах и есть с чем сравнивать.Заселение прошло сравнительно нормально.Дальше-сама квартира.Планировалось остаться там дней на 10,но выдержала только сутки.На фото она выглядит гораздо лучше.Сам ремонт делаои,вилимо,давно.Стены грязные,мебель тоже.Диван прикрыт покрывалом,что бы не видно было пятен на нём.кресла тоже все в пятнах.Постельное бельё мятое.В ванной нет шторки.и при приёме душа вода заливает всё,как бы аккуратно не старалась мыться.из-за колонки невозможно отрегулировать воду.или горячая или холодная.Полотенца просто ужастные.Серые и твёрдые.В кухне вся техника старая.Холодильник воняет.И вообще вся квартира пропитана непонятным запахом. ИЗ плюсов только расположение и удобная кровать.Эта квартира столько не стоит
