What is a serviced apartment in Moscow?
A Moscow serviced apartment is a quality apartment offered for short-term and medium-term rental in central Moscow by a professional real estate company. Each short-term apartment in Moscow offered by our company is carefully selected in terms of secure location and convenience to ensure our guests’ maximum comfort and safety.
The apartments are called "serviced" because they are cleaned, maintained and managed for you just as a hotel room would be. At the same time, a serviced apartment provides you with all the facilities you need to make you feel at home, like a living room, a bedroom(s), a bathroom and a kitchen.
What can I expect from a serviced apartment in Moscow?
A serviced apartment in Moscow features a living room, bedroom(s), a bathroom and a kitchen. All apartments are fully furnished. Bathrooms comprise a bathtub/shower cabin, a toilet and a sink. The kitchen is equipped with cupboards, a refrigerator, an oven, sink, microwave oven, an electric kettle and a toaster, as well as dishes, pots and pans, cutlery and cooking utensils. The apartment is cared for by our in-house maintenance department and is fitted with a telephone line, plus the following appliances: satellite television, a VCR, a stereo system, a washing machine, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer and a vacuum cleaner. The following services are included in the rent: 24-hour property maintenance, maid service three times a week, weekly change of bed linen and towels, bottled water, a survival manual with information about the apartment and nearby shops and restaurants, etc. Laundry and ironing services are available for an additional fee.

What is the minimum and maximum length of stay for Moscow short-term apartments?
There is no maximum or minimum length of stay in an Intermark serviced apartment. You can stay for as short as a couple of nights or as long as one year.
How far in advance should a serviced apartment be booked?
Due to the increasing popularity of serviced apartments in Moscow, the demand is high, especially during peak seasons. We advise you to make a reservation as early as one month in advance or as soon as you know your arrival/departure dates. We will certainly try to help you with last-minute reservations, but be advised that our apartments may be fully booked.
An important comment: We are a short-term rental service. However, many of our clients stay for 1-3 months or longer. To accommodate out guests, we do not make short-term reservations earlier that 1 month before arrival. For instance, we generally would not make a 5-night reservation 2 months prior to your arrival date so as not to hinder a possible longer reservation. Therefore, we suggest you apply for a short-term reservation (up to 1 week) 2-3 weeks before your planned arrival. Thank you for understanding.
How do I make a reservation for a serviced apartment in Moscow, Russia?
The process is as follows:
1) Fill out an online request form to check the availability of an apartment for your chosen dates.
2) We will then promptly process your request and if the apartment is available: a) companies will be asked to sign a lease agreement; b) individuals will be asked for a pre-payment.
3) After this has been done, the apartment will be reserved and a time will be set to meet in the apartment on your arrival date (if necessary).
Usually one of our representatives meets a new guest in his or her serviced apartment to welcome them, hand over the apartment keys and answer any last-minute questions.
After you have submitted an online reservation request form, we will confirm the availability of the requested apartment by e-mail or by phone within 24 hours (usually much more quickly), except for forms submitted Friday afternoon, Saturdays and Sundays. Forms submitted on those days are processed Monday morning.
Urgent requests should be addressed by phone: +7 (495) 22-189-22 (office), + 7 (985) 410-59-37 (mobile).
