“Rip off costs for invitation letter”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2010

I had the misfortune of stayng at this hotel for 2 nights in October. Despite the fact I was told it would be EUR 20 for two invitation letters which were necessary to obtain our visas, when I got to the hotel I was presented with a pre-authorised credit card slip with EUR 40. A lot of hotels in Moscow provide this service free of charge and others charge a lot less. Had we known of this extra charge, we would have chosen a better class of hotel. The toilet and shower were connected to macerators so anytime you flushed the toilet/had a shower, it was very noisy and as the walls were paper thin, you could hear everyone in the hotel doing the same. They told me the kitchen was being refurbished so there was only fried eggs or porridge for breakfast which they wanted you to have at their times not to suit you! The guy on reception spoke excellent English with an American accent and seemed pleasant until I started questioning his charges. The hotel was situated about a 25 minute walk to Red Square and 10 mins from Christie Prudue metro station. Taxis from SVO and DME take 45 mins-1 hour and cost 2000 RUBs. Take one of these to avoid all the aggro!

Stayed October 2010, traveled as a couple
