Spent 6 nights over New Year’s 2013. Brilliant location - quietly nestled between 2 metro stations which can’t be more than 10 minutes walk to either which. Many interesting places in the neighbourhood which, whichever sites I surfed to find out a bit more about the hotel, makes little mention of this fact. Leo Tolstoy museum, Pushkin Museum, Christ of the Saviour Cathedral, The-Master-&-Margarita-house”, fancy eateries, etc. The things to explore within the streets itself, never mind the Red Square - half hour’s/45 mins walk. Gorky Park 15/ 20 minutes away was wonderful, full of activities even at -5 degrees C. A (longish) walk from Saviour Cathedral’s bridge at the rear end towards Gorky Park was very pleasant - with surprising finds. The room size for Standard Single Room was very comfortable. For the rate – seemed like a steal compared the other hotels advertised.
Sometimes the reception was manned by non-English speaking staff, which would be an inconvenience if you need some assistance. I was quite lucky to have an English speaking receptionist on my last day who translated to the taxi driver whatever was necessary and quite possibly more; the driver actually parked the taxi and rolled my luggage right to the airport check-in counter.
The lane to the hotel was a bit dark; for a lone female traveller, this was a bit of a bother coming back at night. No water provided or Wi-Fi in the room - not certain of other rooms. On the 4th floor where I was at, found the Wi-Fi in the hall. Breakfast can be a bit better, food was not very imaginative, but enough. Room was only cleaned when I actually put the sign on the door – not certain if that is how it is supposed to be or was it because they are short-staffed with it being a holiday season.
Overall, not too bad - a pleasant stay, didn’t break my bank and truly enjoyed my walks around the area.
