A picture postcard view over the Kremlin from a room in a huge apartment in Moscow' famous House on the embankment.
With six rooms, the apartment is big, bright and has high ceilings. 125sq m in total. It's on the 10th floor of Moscow's House on the Embankment, with a fantastic, picture-postcard view over the Kremlin. International news reports are regularly filmed from our livingroom. The building is famous for it's unique soviet architecture and history. There's a museum downstairs devoted to the building.
The apartment is located on the banks of the river, opposite the Kremlin and within 200m of the "Red October", the new epicentre of Moscow's social scene, full of great bars and restaurants. 10minutes walk in three directions takes you to a wide choice of metro stations.
For those of you who like to keep fit, there's an old cycle machine in a spare room. For those of you who don't, there's a library of dozens of books about Moscow and Russia which you're welcome to borrow during your stay.
I’ve been coming to Moscow for almost 15 years. It’s a fabulous city to visit whether you’re here for business or leisure. But if you are on business, make sure you find time to check out the city. As they say in Russia, “A good day’s fishing is always better than a bad day’s work”
Living room, kitchen. All common areas.
Moscow's epicentre. 24-hour supermarket in out (website hidden) STRELKA - Moscow's best bar/restaurant only 4 minutes walk. Gorky Park and amazing Museon sculpture park only 8 mins walk. The Kremlin and Christ the Saviour Church both 5 mins walk.
There are 4 metro stations within 12 minutes walk from the apartment.
The building is famous for it's architecture as well as for it's history. It housed (and still does) many top government officials, writers and artists and was the epicentre of Stalin's purges. If you book the apartment, ask me to send a link to an online documentary on the building in English.
Johnny gave us clear directions to his apartment at the top of the classic block on ther Embankment overlooking the Moscow Kremlin. You could not wish for a more stunning view from your room. As well as looking out over the Moscow River to the spires of the Kremlin, the kitchen takes in the full expanse of the new Saviour Cathedral. It could not be more convenient for the many sights of the city. The Lenin Library Metro station is a pleasant 10 minute walk across the river with views of the city and the river.
The apartment has a nice roomy sitting room and a modest but adequate kitchen, fine for breakfast before heading out into the city. I could not fault the comfort and pleasure of our stay and the welcome given us by our host.
We had a wonderful time in Moscow and Johnny was the perfect host. It was so helpful for us as Americans visiting Moscow for the first time to have a host who spoke English and could explain so many things to us. The room was very comfortable and had a fabulous view of the Kremlin and Red Square. Johnny also gave us interesting historical background information on his building as well as transportation and restaurant recommendations. Perfect location in perfect host!!
The photo of the Kremlin view doesn't lie: this is what this apartment is all about - a brilliant location at the heart of Moscow in a building with a storied history. Although it's by no means messy, this is very much a bachelor apartment shared, at times, by a trio of guys and their girlfriends - if you come to stay then you'll find the place pretty busy. There is a cleaner who shows up once a week to keep things in check and there are studentish rules about drinking water (easiest thing is to bring your own - there's a very handy 24-hour supermarket steps from the apartment).
Johnny was away while I was in town but very responsive via email as were his housemates who were charming and friendly as only the Irish can be. I was made to feel welcome and the my stay here was relaxing and memorable, even though I've visited Moscow many times before.
Great place to stay. Perfect location, amazing view, charming host.
