About this listing
A place in the heart of Moscow, next to all the main sights and fancy areas. Lots of restaurants nearby. All reachable by foot.
A fully functioning kitchen. A bathtub and a shower. No TV as I don't watch it :)
The 3,5 meter height to the ceiling will give you a great feeling. A window in the bathroom is something I always wanted.
There's a museum dedicated to the building next door. It was completed in 1931 as the Government Building, a residence for the Soviet elite.
The access to the apartment is as easy as can be any time as the doorman is there 24/7 and he has the keys.
Interaction with Guests
I always try to be there in person to meet you upon arrival, but sometimes I'm busy and the doorman will hand you the keys. But I'm always reachable by phone, e-mail or airbnb to assist you in anything. Just ask :)
You literally see Kremlin when you come out of the main door. 10 minutes to the walls of Kremlin through the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge and a little longer to Red Square through the picturesque Alexander Garden!

Where to even begin! This place was the perfect spot for our Moscow adventure. Alex was absolutely incredible about being helpful and available to us. We were pretty needy as we don't speak any Russian and he answered every question within minutes.
The location is unreal. As soon as you step out the front door you are greeted by an amazing view of the Kremlin and riverfront. I don't think you could get any closer. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the ticket office and the red square.
The house is clean and very tasteful decorated. The check in process was convenient and easy. The house is on the ground floor so you don't have to climb flights of stairs. There is a grocery store about 20 steps from the entrance which was INCREDIBLY convenient. Food in Moscow can be expensive and we were traveling on a shoe string budget so we took full advantage of the store.
We took Alex's advice and rented some velobikes (theres a station right next to the apartment) that we used to cruise around the city day and night. We loved them! It's slightly hard to get signed up, I would recommend doing it online before you go to the station(NO ENGLISH).
ALSO! We found the mecca of good and inexpensive tourist shopping. There was everything from souvenirs to incredible vintage items. It was everything I had dreamed of. You can barter for a fair price. It's called Izmailovsky Market. Just jump on the metro (which is beautiful!) and get on the Blue line to partizanskaya stop. I died and went to heaven!
Thanks for an amazing place to stay Alex!
Nice, cosy and clean appartement! Walking distance of the red square. Also the list with tips of Alex was very nice! We loved bar Strelka both the roofteracce as the inside. Alex was very helpful and always quick with responding. If you come to Moscow do visit the Armoury in the Kremlin.
5 stars. is there anything that needs to be said? if you have questions about the area or need some assistance, the building has a concierge that works from early morning to late night.
This was the first time I've visited Moscow just for private reasons.This apartment is much better than any hotel room in Moscow! The location is just perfect, when you leave the entrance door you're facing the Kremlin! Around the corner is the former "Red October", New Tretjakowski Gallery, Sculpture park, Gorki Park is easily to reach. The flat itself is located in a "house", full of history. All of my Russian friends knew this building and confirmed that many people of "intelligenzija" lived here. You can find the building in many travel guides as the "house on the banks". The flat has everything what you need, is very clean, quiet. We had a good sleep in the bed. The bathroom is very nice. Communication with Alex is very easy and prompt. I would highly recommend this place!
Perfect place in perfect location!
And Alex is great host, check out his guide for the local places.
I will be back to this place!
The Apartment is located in a great position.
Everywhere is easily accessible. The Kremlin across the road, Red square, Gorky park within short walking distance.
The apartment is very cosy and has everything that you would need for a short or long stay.
Supermarket Just outside!
Asides the great apartment, Alex was extremely helpful, was always one click away via a quick message if you needed any help or info.
Would certainly recommend the apartment, and 5* for Alex for being a great help!
Beautiful Apartment, Perfect Location, really Nice and helpful host!! I would defintely recommend Alex and his Apartment To everyone!! 5*!!!
About the Host, Alex
A few words about myself.
Originally from Moscow. A typical guy from this area :)
I love all the extreme sports. Fast cars, motorcycles, parachuting, skateboarding and much much more. I like to stay fit and eat healthy food.
I'm traveling a lot and leave my beloved apartment all alone.
So I decided it needs company sometimes :)
I enjoy meeting new people and will be there if I can to meet you on arrival and available to answer any questions you may have about the apartment and Moscow in general.
Waiting for you soon!
