    if you know which TOWN or City you will go, look up on the net the hotels directly and book there... on top of it, i don't think Russia is at the moment overrun with tourists.
    on top of ot, at any airport, railway station, but serminal there are people who KNOW where you can get a cheap place for the night or a few days. Russian Language though for sure is a must...
    and remember -when in Rome do as the Romans do-....
    No shouting around how you hate Russia and Russians. you will get deported. like that finnish(?) assistant penpusher..
    Nothing on you that is not legal or you have a stamped document with you. (9 years for less than a gram of cannabis oil...

    while i think your post is a chep -clickbait- or ad, i still reply. though my reply is different than it normally would be.

(Russian,English and German).
    On the left hand side it gives you also a choice how much you want to spend. The -standard -though is for a double bed. Suppose if or when one clicks further it will also explain is breakfast included or not?

    if you go to this website, it looks like AirBnb is working
    https://www.airbnb.com/moscow-id/stays

    But if you go to Airbnb directly, it says "no listings." The snowflake closed it down.

    Also, if one prefers not hotel but apartments, and has some skills in Russian, avito.ru also can be an option

    The Colorado Springs (infested with many Progressive Snowflakes) entrepreneur closed down its operations in Belarus and Russia in March, so i am not sure what's going on.

    The media claims many people are "donating" to Ukrainian AirBnb listings, to show support for Ukraine. Can we spell "s-c-a-m"? Hey want to get some free cash? Just claim you are a Ukrainian host... "My apartment was bombed!"

    Anyway, I like to call the hotel, like BigBear said, so i can be sure of the room and price when I arrive.

    I used AirBnB to book a room in Kansas City. When I got out of the van, I heard explosions in the neighborhood. Sounded like gunshots, but the Chiefs (football team) were playing that night, so it could have been firecrackers.

    Funny-looking finger (maybe he's an alien) ...
