Arbat House

13 per. Skatertny, Moscow, Moscow, 121069, Russia

Rooms in this former guesthouse for the Georgian embassy are a mix of the basic and the updated, with brown wall-to-wall carpeting and cramped bathrooms, but also plasma TVs and large beds. Some nice quirks remain: a marble staircase with a cherub statue; a mystifying ceramic piece by much-maligned artist Zurab Tsereteli, who is famous for his statue of Peter the Great that stands at a bend in the Moscow River; and a small portrait of Ramzan Kadyrov, the controversial president of Chechnya, hanging in the stairwell. Views from rooms are nothing special, but the surrounding area is one of the city's most charming.
