When you need to hide from the city’s noise and traffic but don’t want to stroll too far, Patriarch Ponds is the place to be. Calm water, friendly swans and ducks with beautiful early 20th century architecture in the background make this neighborhood a place you’ll never want to leave. Besides stylish bars and restaurants scattered in the streets around the pond, you’ll be able to enjoy museum life from modern art to a former private apartment of Mikhail Bulgakov. As most of the businesses are open late, stop for a cocktail and then stroll by the pond to rent a boat and row yourself to the middle of the “bowl” as the locals call it.
If you are a fan of The Master and Margarita you must visit a few places that appear in the Book, Patriarch's Ponds and the Bulgakov House Museum which also includes a visit to the Apartment 50, the "haunted apartment" in the book. They didn't speak anything but Russian in thr Museum, but it is OK, you can still make...
This is a small pond in Moscow's robust city centre. Even for those without knowledge of Russian literature, Patriarch's Ponds offers a respite from the busy urban life. The leafy pathway is dotted with statues of fairy tales.

"Moscow's Biggest Street"
reviewed 17 February 2019 by awhw
Moscow's biggest street leading from Red Square up and you can enjoy a half hour walk of interesting sights and shops. Restaurants are mainly at side streets parallel or perpendicular to the street proper. One of the best streets to walk not only for Moscow but for any world city. Many leading hotels are on it.
Of the two Bulgakov museums, located right next to each other in Moscow, I was initially more excited to see this one as the actual residence and where Master and Margarita is set. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to expectations as much as the actual museum did.
The decorations are fun, with historic and fiction-related artwork outside, up the staircase,...

"Super cider selection"
reviewed 1 week ago by 315neilw
Just be chance we walked into Cidreria, where thee used to be a casual French restaurant Normandie-Neumann. It’s just off Tverskaya near the Garden ring, but a few steps off the Main Street. Definitely worth looking down the side street. If you’re tired of summer beer and don’t need another glass of Pinot, this is the place. Good advice about...
The food was great, good fish restaurant with only fresh ingredients. I don't like fish that much but there were enough alternatives. Nice atmosphere, decor was beautiful. I really enjoyed dinner there.
Walking distance to the metro
Very close to the Main Street that leads to red square.
Good shops along the way
Staff are friendly and speak English
Buffet is ok not the best
The design of the hotel and the room was great. But our room had a really bad smell maybe from the ventilation system.. the breakfast was ok! The location was perfect, the red square was only 15 minutes.
Good, quiet location. 5 min walk to Metro and main Tverskaya Street , 25 min walk to Red Square. Restaurants and bars around a little pricy (between upscale areas) . Clean rooms with comfy queen bed, but on smaller side. There was some smell in room adjacent to maintenance area on 3rd floor. Large clean bathroom with robe, sleepers. Very...
"Cosy little place in the intellecutal inner district of Moscow"
reviewed 23 July 2018 by herceghi
The Hotel is a little place, on the 3rd floor of an older house on Sadovaya circle.
A very little room (I was in a single room), however well equipped, includng an A/C as well. This allows you to sleep at a closed window and keep the night noise of Sadovaya out. The Patriarchs Pond is 50m away (one of...
Based on pics and publicity, I had some degree of expectation about my stay at the Bulgakov Residence, but it seems I had to remain objective while sharing this note on this page.
The price is far too exagerated for what it actually is. One could be confused by the photographs exposed on the web.
The elevator is beautiful! but...
