I found the apartment on Noviy Arbat #16 via Lonelyplanet.com and reserved through the website. On the confirmation, it provided a telephone number to call to arrange access. Thankfully, my girlfriend is fluent in Russian, as neither the lady doing the check-in nor the contract were in English. The contract has some tricky clauses that my girlfriend quickly singled out, and with a little discussion these were ultimately altered in writing before I signed.
The apartment we got, was actually a different apartment we had booked (so #16 is not the apartment we stayed in, but can't remember the actual number). Somehow, the apartment we had booked was not available. Our apartment was a little further from the centre (but on the same road) and bigger. For the 2 of us, it was huge, although the furniture was old, it was in a pretty good condition apart from the bathroom that suffered from leakage from the apartment above.
Our worst experience was on the last night, when we found the key not to be working late at night. After repeated attempts, we finally got hold of someone at the leasing agency. This took us hours. When he also could not open the apartment, we were finally offered an alternative close by. By then, it was early morning, but we slept okay in that place. They next day, we could retrieve our luggage from the original place and they agreed to a late check-out.
All in all, it was not a bad experience as it provided a much better deal then a hotel, but the service was dismal.

By the time the Exhibition opened again in 1954, it contained a new "Friendship of Nations" fountain consisting of sixteen (one per republic) larger-than-life maidens in national costumes of gilded bronze. There also were new pavilions in the neo-Muscovite and Russian neoclassical styles that featured prominently in late Stalinist architecture.

... tube filled with caramel, all of which were delicious. We also looked up Jess' Lonely Planet guide on Russia and learned that the word on the digital display that I had translated to "path", actually translated to "track", which is a synonym but one that makes a hell of a lot more sense than "path". On the second day of the train trip, the older man got off leaving just us and the Russian speaking girl. By now we had built a bit of rapport with her, through offering and ...
