“Not much change in 33 years”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I stayed at this hotel 33 years ago, and the basic room layout has not changed at all - certainly no "mod cons", but for a 2 day stop, was reasonable enough - was travelling as part of group. Problem was the charging by the shops for postage to England - the price according to our guide is 25 roubles for a postcard, but the shops were charging 50 roubles, with no explanation - found out that the extra charge is for the hotel to express deliver your mail to the Post Office. Our postcards have still not arrived 14 days later!!

Food was buffet style, and lots of it, but very busy with some people fighting to get their food

Room Tip: This is a massive hotel - check the rooms on Trip Advisor before booking

This is a gigantic soviet style hotel meant for accommodation, that's it period. The good things going for this hotel is that it's location is ideal close to metro, few shops close to the hotel. Many dining options inside the hotel that's it. Room is very very basic with minimal things as if it was never upgraded since 1976, same story in the bathroom. Staff has the normal russian behavior ( no smile, serious face), no warmness at all. If you are on budget this hotel makes sense in a city like moscow. Will I go back to this hotel, we'll if I can shell out some more money I will pass on it in a heartbeat.....you get the point

The Cosmos hotel looks really like cosmos from outside, I love the architecture construction, but I expected something may be more modern. Of course the price is inexpensive, but there were some small details that disappointed me. Anyway, the it was nice to feel soviet atmosphere and I enjoyed the breakfast a lot.

Stayed in this hotel in January 2014 and didn't expect much after reading lots of bad reviews of it on the Internet. However, can honestly say it is good value for money considering the prices of accommodation in Moscow. We booked the cheapest room and still had a great view from the windows. The hotel is clean and close to the metro station, it has several restaurants and bars to have a drink at in the evenings and there are several supermarkets nearby. Would definitely recommend and would stay again!

Spent a couple of nights here. Huge place with good security protecting the rooms. You always need to show your room card. This was interesting as there are quite a few working girls in the bars. They usually approach if you are by yourself, even for a minute. We had the buffet for evening meals - good selection but not overly hot and there are other restaurants in the hotel. Breakfast was a similar affair.

I visited Moscow last october. This was the hotel i stayed in. It has a quirky personality to it with the neon space lights around the back, and the way the top lights up at night to give the illusions of stars. The hotel has a pretty central location, and is easy access to everything. I was on the 13th floor and had a wonderful view of the city. I wrote a piece about my trip, and there is a more detailed explanation there if you wish to have a look:

Stayed in this hotel in March 2014, hotel absolutely enormous.. rooms smelt of smoke a bit even though I was in a non smoking room.

Couldn't fault the security.. lobby restaurants served excellent food.. and a good selection of beers..

A wee bit out from the centre of town but decent and cheap links to get around.

Overall a decent place .. not spectacular... however the price of the room was VERY reasonable.
