This hotel provide the best choice for those who wants a good location for a fair price. It's minutes walk to the center of the city. The rooms are simple, clean and fairly comfortable. The building is not located in the street, but rather in a square. So be sure to locate it before going there.

The best thing about this hotel is without doubt the location and the price. Plenty of previous reviews have referred to this. It is 5 minutes from the Bolshoi theatre and 10/15 minutes from Red Square/Kremlin etc. I don't agree with previous reviews that the hotel is hard to find. It is easily located, down a side road from Petrovka... More

As has been referenced by other reviewers this is not the Ritz. However in my opinion the location and price more than made up for the lack of facilities. The hotel is located on the top floor of an apartment block down a side alley. You need to buzz up at a metal outside door and then walk up a... More

Have stayed in Moscow before so knew what to expect, but there were a few things that could really improve this hotel/hostel. Firstly it is a little tricky to find and asking in a few neighbourhood shops, none had heard of the place. The website would be better doing a section showing google map pics rather than just a location.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in September 2013. As others have mentioned, the location of the Petrovka Loft is great - a 10/15 minute walk from Red Square and the Kremlin once you know where you're going. Convenient for the Metro too. We didn't find it too difficult to find, but we did have a good look on StreetView before... More

Very Clean, Very Friendly, Very close to red square and metro stations. It took me 1 hour to find the place because is actually inside an unmarked little courtyard and you have to climb the 160 steps or so to the 4th floor, sorry guys, no elevator here, I would go back any day but with less luggage :)

Amazing location but the rooms are damp, there were only 2 toilets and 2 showers working when we stayed there ( for around 10 rooms). My sheets had holes in them. the entire space smells damp. Feels like a bad hostel. Apart from the location absolutely don't recommend.

This hostel is more expensive than others in Moscow yet of lesser quality. The sheets were stained and had holes in them. The ad said it was recently renovated which is true, but it was very poorly done: the are water stains in all ceilings, the toilet area stinks. The neighbourhood is high end, so don't think you will get... More

I stayed for 1 night in a terrible room without a window and then moved out. I soon learnt that there are far more better budget hotels at the same price - THAT HAVE WINDOWS! Just because this place is in the Lonely planet book does not make it right to charge R3000 for a dodgy room. Its really hard... More

Take note of the hotel's instructions as it can be a little tricky to find but not impossible. Look for the archway to the rear of no. 15 - proceed in to arch to second building on left and the third door that has a small sign with hotel name. Use the smaller of the 2 bells and the door... More
