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...

The location and ease of this hotel made my first trip to Russia one to remember! Breakfast and transfer service a plus! We were able to walk to the Kremlin, Red Square, Arbat Mall with ease. The subway was also near by which helped!

This is one of those hotels that you forget you have ever stayed in once you leave. The only bright side of this hotel was a very cute cafe where you have breakfast and that's really all. Rooms are too tight and quite modest, almost old. WiFi worked so bad.

The hotel is wonderful and in a great location, sadly the front desk staff are rude, disinterested and unhelpful. I had booked a transfer to the airport, when I check out I told reception that I was waiting for a transfer to the airport. Despite being the only person in reception with two large bags, when the driver asked for... More

The best part of this hotel: the quiet neighborhood, but 10 minute walk to the Arbat metro. The rooms are reasonably spacious, the wi-fi works at good speed. Shower-bath has modern fixtures. Closet is minuscule, old fashioned perpendicular rod. Restaurant unusually good, with very good breakfasts. Beware of front desk: we ordered a cab for departure, confirmed that order 3... More
