Great but don't buy things from either end of the street as we found the best prices were in the middle. The prices vary widely in the shops although they stock a lot of the same goods so be thorough in your research
this is the main strip for street performers every 100yds and all day and night. unlike most city's Moscow must have a no hassle to tourists as we spent a week on this street and not once were we bothered with hard sellers.
Walk around Old Arbat and soak in the atmosphere. Beware of the "animals" - humans dressed in animal costumes who will charm you into taking photos with them and then ask you for money. Shop for souvenirs, eat in the restaurants and see the attractions hidden around nearly every corner. New Arbat Street has some of the best restaurants, pubs and clubs.
Dreadful place, avoid it if you can. Its a bit like going to a dreadful Disneyland. The street is wide and full of horrible tourist shops and people dressed in Disney costumes trying to get you to pay to have your photograph taken with them. Cheap food stalls, awful singers, KFC, Macdonalds. We longed for the 'real' Russia here not a sanitised western version. You want original Russian cuisine, interesting shops with Russian things in them. The only good thing about it is getting there on the Metro which is incredible.
Just a touristic attraction that lacks the Russian feel. You know the kind of area: where the locals offer the same souvenirs, the restaurants offer more or less the same type of food. Very lively but little to do with the local culture.
Lots of the typical tourist souvenir shops but if you book a private tour with Svetlana you’ll get the history of the beautiful architecture. Save the buying for a second walk and lunch at one of the cafes.
This is probably the best option to stay in Moscow if you're traveling alone or with family, The hotel is less than 500 meters away from the historical Arbat street and around 10 mins away from Kremlin and the Red Square by walking, so you don't even need to use metro or Yandex. My hotel room was perfect - clean, comfy, quiet, and cheap. I should also mention breakfast. It is definitely worth buying this option as it is far better than most of the hotels I've visited so far.
Location was great, minutes walk to the infamous Arbat Street. The Arbat street has hundreds of cafes and restaurants to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel has all facilities nearby within a minutes walk: a supermarket, tailor, shoe fix, souvenir shops etc. The room view was beautiful on whatever side of the building. Rooms have smart TVs that offers YouTube, Netflix etc.
Had a great time staying at the hostel: the staff are supportive and welcome, the dorm, kitchen are clean and comfortable, location - right at the heart of Moscow at the Arbat street (Kremlin and Red Square in 15 min walk)!!!. So it was a wonderful 1 week trip to Moscow!!!
The rooms were better than expected and from what we saw in pictures. Nice and quiet. Great location. next to the Old Arbat street. Many shops and cafes next to the hotel. We got a nice price for the hotel car to the train station. Helpful staff.
Quiet and beautiful, English speaking staff and the hotel is close to Arbat Street
