Homestay accommodation
in a Stalin Skyscraper on Kutuzovsky,
kids welcomed,
50Euros/couple, breakfast included
Huge, old Moscow luxury style, nice English-speaking host with no excessive commercial motivation

7-499- 243-3889, +7-906-724-7720

Takes a while to load but is worth it. 

First the big picture. The apartment is in this skyscraper. Windows are looking onto the Moscow river.

Since the landlord is expected to kick 10% of your rent money my way for site maintenance and promotion, I will hold my mouth shut about the vaults and corridors, ghosts and other eerie things that haunt this Stalin-era building.

Instead, I will emphasize the positives: the location, the place's huge size, its old Moscow luxury combined with a full set of modern gadget, and a great host family.

You will be within walking distance to the Arbat, the World Trade Center (on the right), the US embassy, the Chinese supermarket that sells the freshest to-fu in Moscow, etc. etc. etc. Just doesn't get any better than that, with possible exception of my so-called Dutch Loft in Zamoskvorechye, across the river from the Red Square.

Hi Sasha
Just wanted to say a big thanks for your very warm hospitality and helpfulness. I am sorry we didn't get an opportunity to spend more time with you and your wife but hopefully next time if you will welcome us again.
So in the meantime, take care, best wishes and hope to see you both soon.

Alexander will be happy to meet you at the airport, act as your guide, and assist you any way he can.

He also understands that what it is like to be a weary traveler at the end of a journey, and will NOT insist on your visiting sites and attractions if you are not up to it. Unlike me with my numerous wives, kids, babysitters, large animals (see Horseback trips and rides) etc. etc. to feed, making money is not  his main motivation, and he will not try inflict on you any unnecessary services.
