A very old, dated hotel with very poor conditions. The room smelled, it was not heated properly, not too clean and the staff barely understood English - which made breakfast or any requests challenging. The breakfast was poor - and the Jesus statue in the breakfast area was creepy. A communist, dated hotel without some basic amenities.

I was shocked when I lived there. Small, student dormitory type room with very little amenities. Bathroom is dirty, bathtub has black moss in the corners. Smell of rot everywhere. Extremely expensive for this kind of horrible service. Portraits of Russian orthodox officials everywhere and icons in the room, i.e. no respect to other religions. My room did not have... More

I spent 5 nights in Moscow in the period I was attending a conference near the Lemonosov Moscow State University. I had booked all nights in the Universitetskaya Hotel, one of the nearby hotels indicated by the conference organizers. However, I ended up spending one night in the Universitetskaya Hotel and the remaining 4 nights in the Korston Hotel, another... More

This was an interesting hotel/youth hostel. My floor, 9th was the business hotel area I think, my room was clean and comfortable, TV and Internet both good, comfy bed and good shower. Everyday more bits of furniture would turn up in my room. Warm, as was minus 8 outside, views of the surrounding town and buildings. Not close to a... More

First room had bath that looked trashed with a sledgehammer. Second almost OK. Third - my arranged "lease expensive room" was forgotten, and I was given the most expensive room - expensive for a pointless anteroom and a toilet that STANK. One night I arrived after some 35 hours of flying and traffic - only to be made to wait... More

I got to my hotel - this wonderful hotel, and the first thing I was told was that I had not paid my deposit, even though I had. The unfriendly lady at the counter who didn't speak a word of English was positive that I was not supposed to be there. The bathrooms and rooms were not very nice, fittings... More

I spent 6 nights in this hotel and I am really disappointed. The rooms looked much better on the webpage than in reality. II had a single refurbished room which pretty much looked like one of the old rooms. The room was not only small also the bed with a length of 1,90 m at max. In addition, the corresponding... More

This hotel as one of my fellow commenters pointed out is definitely not for the squemish. Well the service in this hotel is virtually non existent, they mop up the rooms once every day, but, that doesnt make it clean. My room was a smoking room (even though I havent asked for one) therefore it was a bit stinky. Staff... More

The bad: Very little english, in suburbs, 3 miles from nearest subway. No AC in summer. NO INTERNET despite website. Front desk told us to go to library (2 miles away). Nothing but single beds available for us the night we came. Simple rooms, remind you of dorm rooms in college. Bathroom was private but scary. Towel was what we... More
