The Ibis is a good hotel. Clean, comfortable rooms. Staff are very helpful and speak fabulous English, which is a bonus if your Russian is as bad as mine! I asked them to organise taxis for me and hand no problems with them.
Location wise, its in a very quiet location, a little outside of the main tourist area. However, very close to two metro stations which are simple, cheap and very safe to use. To help you navigate the Russian signs for the stations, I would encourage you to download this app Yandex.Metro , which gives you the underground map that you can toggle between English and Russian. It was a lifesaver for me !
I would massively recommend Metro use to Taxis for getting around. Traffic is a nightmare. The metro stations are also a tourist sight in their own right, beautifully decorated and each one is different. A trip round the circle line is well worth it!
Because of its location, it does lack restaurants or bars so be warned. Breakfast is absolutely fine in the hotel, so you can set yourself up for the day and then head out to sight see and eat. There is a Starbucks right next to Serpukhovskaya station.
The very slight negative to this hotel is it allows smoking. There is a non smoking floor however, I had to leave my window open the whole time to air the room from the smell of smoke which had travelled. The bar area was also a bit of a no go area if you hate a smokey environment.
Overall, really good value for money.
