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

We arrived in Moscow from Siberia, and had some trouble locating the hotel. I found it easier to find once I recognized the Ghana flag on the embassy across the street. The room was small but OK for us. It was clean and quiet. There was free wi-fi. The bathroom, halls, and lobby were not air-conditioned in the summer heat,... More

The hotel is well located in the centre of Moscow. Walking distance (15 min) to Kremlin and Red Square. Breakfast was in the Italian Restaurant next to the hotel. (BBCafe) The breakfast was very simple, but i recommend to have dinner in BBCafe! Rooms are cozy but not very big. Good enough for me to stay 3 nights.The hotel is... More

As this was the first hotel we stayed in We were unsure what to expect, we were joining an Intrepid tour. Room was so hot couldn't turn heating of so used air-conditioning luckier than other travellers who couldn't use this as no remotes. Hotel is well located, we found the staff very unfriendly and unhelpful, surely it was evident that... More
