Stayed here with four friends for three nights in June 2014. For the price the rooms and facilities were good. Check in was quite lengthy but we were given a choice of rooms on different floors and different sides of the hotel to chose from which was a nice touch.
Breakfast is very good, a huge range of different foods meaning everyone should find something they like. The main problem was how busy it was. Because the hotel has more than 1000 rooms it felt like all the guests descended on the restaurant at the same time in a morning, meaning it was difficult to find a table and there were queues for food. A lot of travel groups stay at the hotel also.
The hotel offers free WIFI but this can be temperamental. In the foyer/bars the service is good but in the rooms it can be weak/non-existent.
There are permanent security guards positioned at the entrance to the elevators, which is reassuring as you can only pass if you have your room key to hand.
There are a number of bars and restaurants in the hotel meaning we stayed in the hotel at nights rather than venture into Moscow centre. There is an Italian and a Chinese, along with an Asian buffet place. Food is reasonably priced but drinks are quite steep, though this is to be expected with a hotel in a major city.
Excellent location for the nearby VDNKH metro station which is just across the road via a subway, meaning you can be in central Moscow in 20 minutes or so from the hotel.
All in all well worth a stay for those who don't want to pay the much higher prices to stay in a hotel in the centre of Moscow.
