“Good business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

This is very good business hotel next to Crocus Expo halls. This hotel not in central part of the city, but metro station in about 800-1000 m from the hotel. Huge shopping mall in 10 min walk at other side of huge parking plot.

Not very convenient for these who plan to explore Moscow as tourist, but perfect for business travelers who participating in events organized by Crocus Expo.

Breakfast was poor. I don't like it at all in means of presentation and selection, but quality was ok.

1) Walls are paper thin. You can have conversations with your neighbours CLEARLY without raising your voice. You can hear toilets flushing and more - which is more or less, disgusting. If you have noisy neighbours, you can forget about sleep.
2) No minibar in the room. Lady at the bar was by far the rudest person we came across in Moscow.
3) Free drinking water is in the room once when you check in and not replenished. When you order bottled water: 100rubles for 0.5L is the price.
The most frustrating thing is that this is inconsistent because some rooms receive free water every day. But reception confirmed with us that it was not supposed to be.
4) Rooms which are not "river view" rooms have windows which face into the inside of an exhibition hall. No fresh air.
5) Beds are terribly soft. Definitely not recommended for people with lower back pain.
6) Market price for taxi to airport (DME) is 1500-1600rubles. The hotel gives a "special rate" of 2900 rubles otherwise, they will not call a taxi for you.
7) The safe in the room is tiny. You can't fit a laptop. It's for passport only.

For this money, you could be staying at a good hotel in the city centre.
Contend with the traffic, wake up earlier and catch the metro - this hotel is not worth the money or "covenience" when a good nights' sleep is not possible.

Room Tip: pay for the river rooms if anything.

It is 300m from metro and pretty new/clean. Very poor materials, very acoustic. My room was facing sport hall, so no sun light. It is far from Sheremetevo - 3600 Rubles by taxi or by metro through the city center. It worked for me because it was empty but when full it is a nightmare I believe.

Great location if you are attending the Crocus Expo centre. Rooms quite clean though basic, and staff are friendly enough. Food is acceptable but way, way overpriced. Rooms overpriced for what they are. Listening to conversation in 'suite' next door is like having them in the room with you. Would try somewhere else next time, if I'm working at the Crocus centre again.

The only reason to stay in this hotel would be if you attend the exhibition at Crocus Expo. Overpriced for the hotel of this class. Breakfast is good, but avoid the restaurant at any other times of the day. Rooms are clean, air conditioning was not working im my room and it was extremely hot. Room window overlooks exhibition hall, which always has the lights on, so the rooms is never really dark. However, staff are polite, helpful and able, a big rarity in Russia.

It is a small hotel as a part of Trading - expocentre “City Crocus“.
"Aquarium" is located on river bank Moscow, near to the underground and MKAD. Hotel and a complex are absolutely new. In this complex there are a lot of halls and premises for conferences and exhibitions. The universal sports arena "Aquarium" includes a considerable quantity of platforms for carrying out of various competitions and trainings. The basic visitors of hotel are participants of conferences and sportsmen. I consider the prices for numbers a bit overestimated (in comparison HOTEL COMPLEX IZMAILOVO - cases the Alpha, Gamma delta, Vega, the Beta). In conclusion I want to say: if you have a business trip or sports competitions and training gathering pass in a complex “City Crocus“ - is the best choice.

The hotel is located on the bank of the Moskva River and is a part of the Complex «City Crocus».
Underground "Мякинино" is near this hotel. In hotel there are more than 200 numbers. Standard two types: idle time with a kind on pavilions and improved with a kind on the river Moscow. In number the big safe, two beds, a shower cabin, the hair dryer etc. the Interior very cosy.


The big advantage of this hotel is presence of universal sports Arena "Aquarium". Earlier multinomial international competitions on sports ballroom dances were spent in various palaces of sports and halls of Moscow. Often
It was necessary to remove hotels far enough from a venue
Competitions. Now the majority is spent here. If you go from the number, you are on the athletic field. In hotel territory there is a magnificent gym and fields for tennis. On each floor quite good cafes, truth expensive enough.
In general the big modern hotel, c escalators between floors and huge
In air and space volumes.
