We stayed in one of Konstantin's apartments at Mayakovskaya for 4 nights, and it was excellent.
The apartment itself was very nice - modern, warm and safe. The kitchen was very well equipped, and everything we needed was provided (towels, slippers, even toothbrush & toothpaste). The bed was comfortable, there was plenty of hot water (and good water pressure), and everywhere was extremely clean.
The area is a great place to stay - it's a couple of minutes walk from Mayakovskaya metro (which is 2 stops from the Kremlin on the green line) and there are plenty of good restaurants and coffee shops nearby. If you like steaks, the apartment building is directly across the road from El Gaucho, which is one of the better steakhouses in the city.
There is undoubtedly a little traffic noise, but this is par for the course in Moscow - the windows are well insulated, which keeps it to a minimum, and we had no issue with it overall.
The best thing about the apartment is, however, Konstantin himself - he met us at the metro station on our arrival, walked us to the apartment pointing out the attractions in the local area, and made sure we were comfortable. He then went above and beyond, spending well over an hour of his own time showing us around the major attractions in the city, which got our stay off to a great start.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and we hope to return soon!
