Spent about 6 nights here.The only advantage about this hotel is that it’s centrally located. Women reception staff were generally curt, surly and sullen. No doorman to open and shut the very heavy doors. Felt very pre-perestroika. Examine your bill carefully before you pay because check out attempted to foist someone’s else expenditure on me.

Gorgeous hotel in the center of the city. My boyfriend and I have stayed there for one week. The staff was courteous and pleasant. Especially Sergey at the front desk was the most helpful.

This hotel is wonderful and like stepping back in time to the classical error. The furnishings and decor are very tastefully chosen to suit the ambience of this hotel. One of the most comfortable beds we have slept in. The ensuite to our room was very large as was the room itself. There is a huge indoor pool and the... More

Excellent location and large rooms complemented by generally pleasant and helpful staff. The buffet breakfast is OK, but we had divergent experiences with the wait staff. The first morning was staffed 100% by women, and the attentiveness and service was top-notch. The second morning was all young men, and it was as if they had never been trained in paying... More

This hotel has been created from at least 2 other buildings, taking care to preserve some internal details, including the very impressive Herculean statues in the bar. This has been a mixed success; the statues dwarf the bar which has very little atmosphere and there is a very irregular internal atrium above. However there are many excellent features; the location... More

The hotel has been renovated but lacks some of the luxuries one would expect. That said, it is inside an old building and very unique. The Spa, pool and fitness centers are really nice. The rooms are very spacious, but not as comfortable and well appointed as other luxury hotels are. The hotel is located within walking distance of all... More

This hotel is well located with an excellent breakfast and spacious rooms. Our room was fine but had windows onto an atrium.Other members of our tour party had some problems with their rooms. The staff were curteous but the hotel didn't have the ambiance of our Moscow hotel.
