A hotel having it's own garden restaurant in Moscow is rare. But as it is not in mid-central Moscow it is a trade-off. If you are not familiar with the public-transportation system of Moscow you will need to have your own car, or get a taxi. Do not try to get mid-central by car, as it is rush-hour all day and probably also the night. Better to get familiar with the public-transportation system. Bus-stop is just outside the door, or you could get to the nearest metro (Sokol) which is 15-20 minutes walk away. For our work we were picked up each day, and not going to mid-central, so it can be good for business people not having this in mid-central.
The standard rooms are average and without air-condition, so you really need to have the window open if it is hot outside. My room was facing the garden, and the garden restaurant stops playing live music at twelve in the night when open in the summertime.
Sleeping with the window open there is some noise from the cars in the night.
The mini-bar in the room was also a bit noisy for my taste.
Beds are good, size of room and bathroom is average and clean.
You also have the choice between free slow-speed and or 400 Rubles a day fast-speed. If you need Remote desktop, VPN or Skype go for the fast-speed.
The restaurant in the garden is not value for money. I ordered lamb which clearly had been laying a bit to long. Some of the pieces where not good at all, overcooked or had to much fat on them, for a price that was above European restaurant. The German beer (Paulaner) was good.
Breakfast was served in the indoor restaurant. Good service is that they sometimes have porridge served. And if the chef is there, you can get served fresh-made omelette. Another positive point was that the reception organized take-away breakfast when we where leaving before the breakfast-buffet was opened in the morning.
The best thing about this hotel, is that it has good beds and that paid internet high speed. The worst experience was the food in the garden restaurant, even if the atmosphere of being in a garden was informal and good.
