Accommodations in Moscow, Russia

The choice of the right type of accommodation is an important decision as students typically spend more time at home than in the classroom. We understand that people have differing needs and interests. For this reason we offer several accommodation options enabling each student to choose the most appropriate type.

All accommodation offered by the school has been inspected by a member of staff. It is our accommodation officer's job to make sure that all our students choose the option, which fits them best. Some students prefer to stay with friends or would like to organise their own accommodation , which is fine. In that case however, we cannot provide our courtesy arrival transfers on Sundays.


Our host families are not always a traditional married couple with a child/children. Above all we look for someone who is sociable, likes to meet new people and can give a warm welcome to our students. Our host families have time to talk to our students, be patient, understanding, careful and prepared to provide help with any problem that may arise during a student's stay in Russia.

A student's room is furnished with at least:

  • one bed or sofa-bed
  • wardrobe
  • desk with chair and light
  • a mirror (in a wardrobe or a separate one)

Moscow Language CoursesThe rooms are clean and, by Russian standards, spacious. Bathroom and kitchen are shared with the family. All our apartments have telephone. Maximum travel time to the school in Moscow 1 hour.

All our families and their homes are personally known to our accommodation officer. Families are inspected once a year. The standard of the families is monitored by questionnaires (entry and exit) given to students.

Students' wishes and needs such as non-smoking/smoking, allergies, vegetarian food, with/without pets etc. are taken into account as far as possible. Normally students should remain with one family for the whole duration of the course, even if things are not exactly the same as expected.

We allow students to change the host family during a language course but we require minimum one week notice.


Shared flats

Those students who prefer to stay on their own but at the same time wish to experience a student atmosphere may choose our shared flat option. Our flats provide single bedrooms (usually 2-3), shared bathroom and kitchen. Bed linen, cutlery and kitchen equipment are provided. The flats are all equipped with one TV set, telephone, washing machine and vacuum cleaner. The shared-flat option costs the same as staying in a host-family, but without board.


Students who wish to live on their own can rent an apartment with the help of the school. We cooperate with a couple of reputable real-estate agencies and private landlords who rent out apartments of all kinds.

Studio apartments are selected prior to arrival according to the information (description and pictures) sent by e-mail. If necessary, an apartment can be changed after arrival but not earlier than one full week after arrival (fees apply).


We offer a full range of hotels in Moscow in all categories. The hotels below are the ones we specifically recommend, either because of their location and/or because they are very good value for money.
