We were very happy at Arbat House Hotel for 5 nights: welcoming staff, lovely reception area, comfortable beds and rooms, great area for walking to major sights. We would definitely go back to Arbat House if we returned to Moscow. An added bonus was the BB Cafe in the hotel - superb food and service, and not expensive.

Stayed here for 2 nights in September. Good location in a nice area. It is one of those hotels which has a nice lobby but then when you get 'behind' the scenes it is a little shabby and could definitely do with a makeover. Having said that, it was clean and comfortable enough so if you are just looking for... More

Not sure if you find this or not, but nothing's perfect. That might seem like stating the obvious, but sometimes I think I've almost found the perfect hotel room and then there's something niggly that goes and ruins it. In the case of the Arbat House Hotel in Moscow – conveniently located very close to Red Square and, of course,... More

The location of this hotel is ideal for both the 'Old' and 'New' Arbat Street's, and the Arbatskaya Metro Station. It is also about a 15 minute walk to the Kremlin. We checked in on 04/09 and were allocated a nice quiet room on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. We found that the staff seemed to... More

The rooms are comfortable, wifi, dinner and breakfast good and the staff are helpful. Both the metro and the red bus were 5 minutes walk away and you could walk to the Kremlin and Red Square in 15-20 minutes.

It is really good hotel with very nice restaurant and food. Breakfast was excellent, traditional Russian food with good service. Location is just a few minutes far from Arbat street and 15 minutes walk from Kremlin. Excellent. Enjoy in your holiday.

The location is perfect, although the street is not very quite, but it not very annoying with closed windows. The room was spacey enough. The air-conditioning works properly. The breakfast is basic, but generally ok (and is included in the room price). The bed was really bad: old, uncomfortable, squeaking, some supporting parts were broken. The WiFi signal wasn't very...
