If you are visiting Moscow for a short period of time you will find great offers on the portal leader in short-term rentals – Airbnb. Short term rental price firstly depends on how close to the city center you are willing to stay. If you prefer something outside the Garden ring, choose western or nord districts like Khamovniki, Dorogomilovo, Begovoy, Meshanskiy, Basmanniy, Aeroport, Sokol or Krylatskoe.

Average prices for one-room Moscow flats are from 30 000 rub. (€491.77) to 100 000 rub. (€1,639.24) per month. They depend on different demands you have towards your future rented apartments. The number of rooms, environmentally favorable location, parking lot, hi-end interior design, security and modern western renovation will make the price of your flat grow higher or smaller. In addition there is an opportunity to rent a room in a Moscow flat with somebody else. In this case you will pay half for using all the amenities.
Most popular sources to find flats are CIAN and The Locals.
Also, you can find agencies like MIEL or Azbuka Zhilya, which suggest you an appropriate apartment; although for extra money. But in this case you do not have to spend a lot of time and deal with apartment owners.
