The location is brilliant! The hotel is ok, with the only downside- there were building works in the hotel when we stayed, so it was noisy. The food was very good, especially dinners- very traditional and tasty. Some mornings, you could notice that the breakfast was a stress for the staff and it was difficult to cope with the pressure.... More

This hotel is really charming. It has lots of features that make it a very atmospheric hotel. The cafe/restaurant has a good menu and the food was good. Breakfast is average but I was never really impressed with any Russian breakfast. The location is good but it is on a quiet street and not in the centre of things or... More

Stayed 5 nights, enjoyed it very much. Great location walking distance to all major attractions as well as restaurants public transportation etc. Rooms are basic but very comfortable and very clean. Staff very helpful in all we needed. Breakfast simple but good variety and very tasty. All that for pretty good price. Recommended whole heartedly

I stayed at this hotel for a few nights in August this year (2015). I like the central location of a place,..., couple of minutes away from Arbatskaya metro station. My room was pretty good with comfortable bed and a bathroom with the tub. Rooms a re generally clean and stuff is pretty helpful. Breakfast offers a good selection of... More

The beds were full of springs that stuck into our back. Very small rooms. Breakfast not too bad. No jug for hot water. Noisy Russians banging doors and talking loudly after midnight. Would never stay there again! Part of a tour group

This is a very good choice for hotel. Walking distance from Red Square, clean, good breakfast, nice decoration on ground level and staff spoke good English. Rooms have air condition. Downside is a little bit threadbare decoration in rooms but they are still clean and functional.

The location was really good. Close to the metro and within easy walking distance to Red Square the Kremlin etc Breakfast had a lot of choices, nice dinning room We found the staff very helpful and obliging and the fact that they spoke English helped a lot. The rooms were quite small but adequate and clean.

It is a neat and decent hotel near Arbat street. The front desk was great and very helpful. The rooms are quite small and not good for long stays. The lone restaurant serves good breakfast, but the dinner menu is limited and the service is rather curt. overall had a good experience.
