Sheremetyevo

First capsule hotel in Moscow

by Olga on January 29, 2013

First Moscow Sleepbox Hotel is located on 1st Tverskaya-Yamskaya St opposite Marriott Hotel and in the close vicinity of Belirussky railway station. The place was chosen not by chance: the terminal is, in turn, connected by Aeroexpress to the airport Sheremetyevo.
Good idea, if to change the price list.

Again airports

by Olga on December 12, 2010

I  got a question:

Is it possible to take a taxi to the northern most Metro Sta. (Rechnoy Vakzal), then use the metro to get to Domedyedevo. (Heard rumors that the line was being extended that far to the south.)

Actually, I would not recommend anybody who does not speak Russian to take a taxi service at Moscow airports for safety reasons, besides it will be too expensive.

There is a possibility to use

the AeroExpress train which goes between the Sheremetyevo airport and Belorussky Railway Station (35 min, 300 rubles) http://www.svo.aero/en/aeroexpress/

than the metro (you need to be a communicative person to ask for help if there will be any problem with orientation)

than the AeroExpress train which goes between Paveletsky Station in Moscow (metro station there has the same name) and the Domodedovo airport (40-50 minutes, 300 rubles).

In my opinion the best way to escape this long trip around Moscow is to buy tickets which allow to change the plane in one airport. I would prefer Domodedovo.

NB: Domodedovskaya metro station of the dark green line is very far from airport! There you can take a regular city bus or marshrutka=minibus which run from this metro station to DME.

Moscow Airport

by Olga on December 5, 2010

I was asked about the flights involving a change of planes at Moscow and whether Moscow is an easy airport to find one’s way around if you are not a good Russian speaker?

The main two Moscow airports are Sheremetyevo (SVO) and Domodedovo (DME). In my opinion it would be easier to change the plane at Domodedovo airport if your route allows you because at Sheremetyevo there are several terminals located not so close to each other. At Domodedovo everything will be in one place and it is obviously easier for orientation.

Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport has announced plans for a large-scale $97-million investment program through 2015, aimed at the construction of a new passenger terminal, parking lots, and a line of passenger boarding bridges.
