Nice rooms, and good location for the price. Clean. But our bathroom was a bit smelly. After few complaints, They have changed our room to a cleaner one. I gave four stars because we had to sleep in the first room for two nights before they have agreed to change the room.

A good hotel. Quite small rooms. No water coolers. Staff is quite friendly, you can print and scan here, store the bags, get a lolly, etc. It's quite difficult to pack in a twin room. Good location just opposite Ghana embassy. You know what? "Ghana has a really good development plan this year - they ghana do this and ghana... More

A medium-sized hotel in central area of Moscow. Not expensive but nice, tidy and peaceful. Ten minutes walk to the nearest metro station "Arbatskaya", 30 minutes walk to Red Square area. Very helpfull, English speaking staff. Breakfast table not so special but good enough for the road.

Location for exploring Moscow by foot is superb - it's a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro, and a half an hour (or a metro stop away) from Red Square and the river. There's a small supermarket at the end of the street, which itself is nice and quiet as it's essentially a residential area. Breakfasts are served in... More

The restaurant offered very nice breakfast and good lunches. The communication went very well with the stuff, they were helpful and easy to reach. This hotel is... More

Arbat House is an older hotel in a great location. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We did have one problem with a request for a taxi to the airport for an early flight. Although I confirmed three times with the staff that they would request a taxi to be there at 5:30, when we arrived in the lobby... More
