Arbat House is handily located for both Arbat Prospekt where you will find lots of shops and restaurants, and also a simple walk of about ten to fifteen minutes to the Kremlin and Red Square. The Arbatskaya Metro Station is also nearby if you want to venture further afield. (I recommend a trip up to the VDNK station which has... More

I was twice in this hotel. The location is great, about 300 mts from Novy Arbat Street. The reception ans all hoptel is very cosy, the breakfast amazing, the rooms are very nice with middle size, and the bathrooms are big and functional. I would return to this hotel every time I travel to Moscow!

We were very happy at Arbat House Hotel for 5 nights: welcoming staff, lovely reception area, comfortable beds and rooms, great area for walking to major sights. We would definitely go back to Arbat House if we returned to Moscow. An added bonus was the BB Cafe in the hotel - superb food and service, and not expensive.

Stayed here for 2 nights in September. Good location in a nice area. It is one of those hotels which has a nice lobby but then when you get 'behind' the scenes it is a little shabby and could definitely do with a makeover. Having said that, it was clean and comfortable enough so if you are just looking for... More

Not sure if you find this or not, but nothing's perfect. That might seem like stating the obvious, but sometimes I think I've almost found the perfect hotel room and then there's something niggly that goes and ruins it. In the case of the Arbat House Hotel in Moscow – conveniently located very close to Red Square and, of course,... More

The location of this hotel is ideal for both the 'Old' and 'New' Arbat Street's, and the Arbatskaya Metro Station. It is also about a 15 minute walk to the Kremlin. We checked in on 04/09 and were allocated a nice quiet room on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. We found that the staff seemed to... More
