Location for exploring Moscow by foot is superb - it's a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro, and a half an hour (or a metro stop away) from Red Square and the river. There's a small supermarket at the end of the street, which itself is nice and quiet as it's essentially a residential area. Breakfasts are served in... More

Arbat House is an older hotel in a great location. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We did have one problem with a request for a taxi to the airport for an early flight. Although I confirmed three times with the staff that they would request a taxi to be there at 5:30, when we arrived in the lobby... More

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

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.
