Just spent two days in NH Krasnapolsky. The hotel was apparently rebuilt many times (the interiors of the hotel have a bit complicated layout), but no wonder the main building is more than 100 years old.
My room was located in the "Amsterdam Wing", which is a separate (and quite new) building, divided from the main building by a little pedestrian lane. You had to go out to get there, which can pose a problem in wintertime.
The room was generally ok, a bit tired but clean, very silent, the aircon worked nicely (but you should not expect any breathtaking views). I then recommend the Amsterdam Wing, as the other guests told me that it was noisy their rooms located elsewhere.
The only disappointing thing about the room was the shower - with not enough water running, it takes ages to get showered. Also, the water unexpectedly changes the temperature. So you should be patient and alerted.
All in all - good hotel if you book the silent room. This is what I did, and they respected my booking request, said "oh yes, you have booked the silent room, we have one for you". I think there are no silent rooms the "regular" rooms category, so you should be prepared to pay more for the "exclusive" silent rooom.
