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.

When we were in in St Petersburg, we stayed in Apple Hostel, and there's also an Apple Hostel in Moscow, so that's where we stayed too. They were both nice. When we came to the hostel ...
... minutes from our hostel) we realized how inconvenient it is that we don't speak Russian- or actually know any Russian at all.. After looking utterly pathetic and touristy for too long, a college student sent from the heavens came over to help us find our way and actually accompanied us all the way to the Red Square! (See picture of train station to understand our confusion with the metro signs) Even though she will never read this- THANK ...
... Standard atop of the Senetskaya tower was flapping in the wind despite it being a calm evening. Spooky!!
We headed back South over the Moscow River where after a short 15-minute walk entered the Tretyakovskaya metro station. We identified which direction we need to head then passed the barrier. On approaching the top of the escalator down, Roisin stopped. Her face had turned ashen. The Moscow Metro is home to the world’s longest escalator, over 740 steps in ...
... to close. Of course there was very little left on the buffet so we stuffed ourselves with what stale scraps we could find, only to realise that the fresh food was on its way - they were waiting for us. When it arrived we were all too stuffed to eat any more. Not to worry, we got unpacked and down for a few scoops in the bar before bedtime. Mind you, drink's not cheap in ...
