“Great location, good value and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I spent four nights at Hotel Kitay-Gorod in September 2013. The hotel is clean but not newly renovated. The service was good and English speaking staff in the lobby. And the location is superb, 20 minutes to the Kremlin, Bolshoj and other remarkable places and 30 minutes to gallery Winzavod. And next door to the hotel are good restaurants and metro station. Very good value for money.

Room Tip: Better to choose rooms on the other side from the park and street, more quiet.

This hotel is just 30 minutes walk from Red Square, which is very convenient.
Breakfast is very good and has fruit.
The receptionists speak English very well.
It is expensive, as all hotels in Moscow, so if you want to save money should book further from the center of the city and take the subway, which runs until 1 am.

We spent 3 nights there, and yes, it's central, and for the gays among you: on a very busy cruising park, but actually we spent a lot of our time in the northwest of the city, which is prime restaurant, shops and bars ground, so I wouldn't have mind to stay less central - anyway, for the red square and the kremlin, this is the best situated 3 star hotel of the city i think

Just came back from Moscow. The hotel is really convenient beside the metro and just a few blocks away from red square. The staff is really helpful and efficient.
The hotel is not fancy, pretty basic but its all you need if your just going to go to spend the night. Good value for your money, (taking into account that your in Moscow which is really expensive).

The location is excellent, close to the Metro and within a comfortable walking distance to Red Square and other places of interest. Across the road is a very nice park.
Our room was a double at the front of the hotel overlooking the park.
Our room had an air conditioner, although friends we were travelling with didn't have this luxury so found the room a little stuffy with the window shut. The traffic requires that the window was kept shut all night.
The room, linen and bathroom were all spotlessly clean.
Close to the hotel were several eateries and a supermarket.
Breakfast was quite good with plenty for everyone. During the day there is tea and coffee making facilities in the breakfast room as well as a machine which makes good hot chocolate and capuccino.
The staff at the reception desk speak good English.
On the down side there are quite a number of steps to negotiate with suitcases and for some this could be a problem.
Also, although the bed was comfortable, there were parts of the mattress where the springs could be felt.
Free wifi was available in the room.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room with AC if travelling in the warmer months. The front rooms are nice but you d...

Next to Kitay Gorod metro station, and about 15-20min walk to bolshoi / red square. Breakfest was ok but took a while to replace what was finished. Overall pretty good value considering Moscow hotel prices

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Hours of research confirmed what all the guidebooks told me: budget hotel options are scarce in Moscow. The trade-off between value and location is generally grim. Yet so long as there is a Kitay-Gorod Hotel, travelers and tourists will have at least one sub-$500 option withing a short walking distance of Red Square.
Conveniently located right at the entrance to the Kitay-Gorod subway station, the hotel is easy to get to (but a little hard to find). It is small, but clean and well-organized. There are few amenities, but hot showers, warm beds and Russian television is just about all you need after a long day of wandering Moscow.
Breakfast is provided, which is convenient, but sacrifices quality and uniqueness for efficiency and abundance.
