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.

... and an army of flies go hand in hand. Vodka is king in the village and within 5 minutes of arrival, I had a 75ml shot of vodka in front of me. That's a triple UK measure! Just one shot took 3 gulps to empty my glass! Within 20mins, a whole bottle between 2 of us was gone and it was time for a swim in the river before going nut picking in the forest then cherry picking. The evenings entertainment was a game of dominos. This was entertainment back to ...
... sure what to make of it, because until tonight I didn’t know what was going on. All I saw were huge groups of people, lots of police, and lots of Russian flags.
I tried to steer clear of the huge groups, and not look or sound too American. No one seemed too bothered with me, so it was fine. It was pretty amazing to see this beautiful city in all its glory. It was a really nice sunny day, so I spent a couple hours walking ...
... 8217;s national author Pushkin, with all the usual ingredients of unrequited love, injured pride, a duel, etc., and with music by Tchaikovsky. Now I’m no expert, but I was certainly blown away by the 3-hour performance (with 2 intermissions during which I embarked on some private money changing with an American visitor in my box to get some Roubles for drinks). It felt as if the Russians had installed a device on stage ...
... a covered bridge, especially for pedestrians. Must be good in winter. We emerged into the suburb of Frunseskaya and found a small cafe, Coffee Mania, where we had lunch. Again, not a tourist place, but with reasonable prices and excellent service. A short walk from there got us to the local Metro and we returned to the hotel ready for the last session of the Championships.
This was to be a wonderful finale to what has been ...
... so numb on this seat and I becoming as paranoid as Lauren with the use of hand sanitizer, good job I brought a good supply. We still don't have a clue where to go but at about 20.30 we walk down to the platform where we saw the station sign earlier & look for people who might be doing the same as us, the place is still packed. The only useful piece of information is that our training tickets says train 4 at 21.35 and we see this info on one of the timetable boards but ...
