My friend and I stayed here for a whole week on our first visit to Moscow from the UK. Staff were helpful and friendly, Free Hot Tea, Free Wifi and Clean Rooms. Will definately stay here again! Best Price in Moscow for location, fairly central and to all main tourist sights including Red Square. 5 Stars!

Before arriving I was slightly doubtful because of the bad reviews Basilica Hotel had gotten, but what do you know: my expectations were met and exceeded. I had some difficulties to find the place, but locals helped (I was on the wrong side of the big street). The location is otherwise good, 10 minutes walk to Kitay Gorod metro, 20... More

Room 11 was terrible: no radiator in winter, no hot shower and a broken bed. The biggest problem is the reception girls: they are absolutely rude and no interested to make the staying comfortable at all. Check-in was late even when we asked for an early check-in and the check-out was a problem again as "I woke up a reception... More

Located in the heart of Moscow, 10min walking to Red Square and the main sights of the city, is a simple hostel, but very clean and organized, the price is excellent for the location of the hostel in moscow and have a supermarket 24h very close.

What shines out about the Basilica Hotel is the fantastic customer service of all the staff - particularly 'Maria' who I bombarded with emails before we even went ! Maria arranged us a shuttle taxi there and back . The handsome taxi driver met us outside arrivals with a huge board and was very polite on both in and out... More

Centrally located and a walking distance to the Red Square, this hostel like 'hotel' is a great option and value for money. On my previous visit to Moscow, I had stayed in a hostel sharing a room with 6 others for the same price. So, even though it may seem expensive it is relatively cheap for Moscow. Great wifi, quiet...

Location Basilica Hostel and Hotel is located approx 15-20min walk from the closest metro station. It is located in an odd place and isn't close to any of the main tourist attractions. We originally chose this hotel because it was claimed to be close to Red Square however in reality it is about 30-40min walk. Facilities Free WiFi and bag... More
