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.

... local specialties each evening. Tonight we had the chance to try a traditional Rassolnik soup (similarly to chicken and rice soup, without the chicken), which was perfect for the raining evening weather. Once we finished up dinner (complete with wine and dessert), we headed back to the room to get ready for our Moscow at Night tour. We boarded the busses at 9:00 and headed out to the city center. We had the opportunity to stop at the University of ...

They were short little ladies and dressed in the style of those little ladies - dresses with heavy leggings underneath, scarves wrapped around their heads, and looked like they walked right out of a movie! And they had more carry on luggage and bags than anyone I've ever seen. And Salvador got up several times during the flight and at the end if the flight to pull things down and ...

I don't yet have the inclination to try to recreate it, I might save that for our next train leg on Tuesday when we might need something to do between time zones.
I'm now going step back in time and complete our day 4 blog.

... we wandered through the neighbouring park, nosing at the multiple wedding parties that were passing through and having a look at a statue about how children are affected by adults’ vices.
Dinner was in an underground (literally underground, not clandestine :oP) Russian restaurant that we almost left because we wrongly thought they didn’t have an English menu. Then it was a walk back to the hotel and bed.

... blocks - the hostel is an unmarked apartment inside, so we can be forgiven for taking a while to find it! And, with the Western luxuries ever decreasing, our hostel is fairly basic compared to the others, but it is clean and the people who run it are exceptionally friendly and helpful.
After checking in, we set out to explore the city for the first time, turning down the hostel owner's offer of an umbrella quote " because we are English and used to ...
