A cheap and cheerful hotel. Don't expect luxuries and best if you have a smattering of Russian because only some of the staff speak (generally limited) English. Advantages: historic interest (next door to old Comintern HQ, the hotel complex was built for the party - been refurbished since!), 10 minute walk (maybe less) to Metro, then 20 min to centre...

We stayed in a standard double room. The room was simply furnished with quite modern beech wood furnishings, white sheets and a small flat screen tv. The room and bathroom were very clean. Was always warm and cosy. Some staff spoke English and some didn't but they were all helpful either way. Papadino restaurant in separate building, part of the... More

laid out like a sanitarium of the USSR or a soviet military school - the hotel is a series of buildings. Several media companies also operate their offices from rooms in the complex which is close to a university which has a large and famous tv and film school. There are also some great cafeterias including the KPCC (communist party... More

Came for the work trip and had a choice between Cosmos hotel and Tourist, since both are walking distance to All Russian Exhibition Center. I liked Tourist more. I liked best: close to Exhibition center and metro; modest old fashioned room, and did not smell cigarets; security in every building, small guarded park areas between the buildings, no hookers in...

Huge and slightly dilapidated hotel complex outside central Moscow, which can easily be reached with the metro. Stayed here for one night, en route from St Petersburg to the Transsiberian. Our room was large and clean, slightly old fashioned, but we can't speak for any other rooms (spread out over 7 buildings). Oddly little English spoken by the reception staff.

Just returned from 12 day stay in Moscow. My friend in Moscow booked me in the Hotel Tourist which is absolutely FILTHY! Rooms were so dirty that I had to take Zyrtec to fight off the allergic reaction to the dirt. The smell of decades of cigarette smoke was overwhelming. Maid service consisted of new towels (on some days). Toilets... More

We've stayed here for 3 nights in the summer and I can't really complain. The location was ok, close to the subway station and therefore 15-20 min from the center of Moscow. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was ok. We've also tried the food in the restaurant and found that good and not expensive. It's not a... More

The origins of this hotel are suspicious; an asylum springs to mind. It is far, and the 'campus' consists of several tired buildings; this was #7. Rooms were clean, thou, and the crammed bathroom, too. Separate beds were basic and particularly narrow. The room was very hot, so the window had to be open all night. The one elevator was... More

I wouldn't be surprised if the Tourist Hotel was build to accomodate guests to the "Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy" (VDNKh) in the 1950s of 1960s. This exhibition glorified the achievements of the Soviet Union (the remains of this exhibition can still be seen behind the hotel and it is certainly recommended to pay a visit). Although the...
