Best areas to stay in Moscow
When choosing which area to stay in during your trip to the Russian capital, the best thing to do is find the most centrally located accommodation, considering this is the second largest city in Europe. With Red Square at the heart of Moscow, if you choose any area with the Garden Ring (the ring road around central Moscow following the old 17th century city walls), you'll be within walking distance of many of the main places of interest.
Moscow city centre is the perfect place for a stroll to absorb the charm of its historic streets, so booking a central hotel will allow you to explore the capital on foot. The best areas to stay in downtown Moscow are around the Kremlin, Red Square and Bolshoi Theatre, and on Tverskaya Street, where hotels cost approximately 5000 - 7000 Roubles per night (80 - 120 US Dollars).
If you're looking to save money on accommodation in Moscow, you can always choose accommodation a little further out of the centre, making sure it's located near a good public transport connection. This way, you'll kill two birds with one stone and get to discover the spectacular stations of the famous Moscow Metro.
Arbat, a lively district full of shops and restaurants located in the west of the city, and Basmanny in the northeast, one of the capital's main residential areas, are two of Moscow's most recommended neighbourhoods outside of the city centre.
