I understand this is a (government) hotel where visiting delegations are entertained, hence the high security that others have referred to.
I was on this occasion here for just one night; although booked into a standard room, I was given a huge suite with ante room, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Thank you! Yes, the fittings are kind of idiosyncratic and dated (avocado bathroom suite, big square box CRT TVs) but clean, well appointed and frankly give the impression of having been little used over a long time.
Great view out over the Moskva River and the extraordinary monument to Peter the Great.
Aurora Bar staff were friendly as were Reception (perhaps its the old issue of making the effort to say a couple of words in the home language, even if you do sound like a complete idiot?).
If you get the chance, visit the conference hall; it's decorated with pictures of the great and good (as well as the notorious) who have stood at the lectern to share their thoughts with the masses,
If you want a standard chain hotel experience, best you don't come here. If you want something with a bit of character that you definitely will remember, give it a go.
