“Ideal and affordable (!) base for a city trip to Moscow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

Stayed in the Slavia for 5 nights after coming in on the TransSib. Moscow downtown hotels are pricy and overrated, so that is why we choose this one just northeast of the city centre. Three metrostops from circle-line 5 to VDNKh, and then 10 minutes on trolleybus 76. Piece of cake and very cheap. A courtesy shuttle is available on working days.
The hotel is situated on a busy throughfare but behind another building, so no noise problems. We took an upgrade to a business suite since this gives an extra sideroom AND a bathtub (which is a blessing after 4 weeks on the road...) The in-house restaurant is better than expected both for quality and price: breakfast also is just fine.
A huge hypermarket is right next door.
The staff is helpful and friendly (and for non-Russian speaking guests: most of the staff speaks good English).
In short: this hotel is value for money and I definitely will book again for the next Moscow visit.

Room Tip: Had a regular room on 4th floor in 2009 which was OK, this time an executive suite (305) which was j...

We would be glad to come back again!

Stayed here in February for a couple of nights half board. Meals not too bad for an English palate, room really clean and warm, and a very short walk to a hyper market/fast food outlets. Staff were friendly and some good banter in the bar with staff and other guests (smoking permitted).

Tremendous value for money, recommended.

The hotel is very clean and staffed by REALLY friendly Russian folks. Many of them are students who speak very good English. They are happy to converse with you at the bar, and are VERY helpful and personable at the front desk. And yes, I encountered my fair share of what they call the Russian "outside persona" - which is horrible - in my wanderings.

My best piece of advice is to make sure you have the metro map in Cyrillic, if you take the metro into town. Get this from the hotel (it's in one of the guide books in the lobby). You won't be able to get one at the metro stations, trust me. My Fodors only had it in English - and that doesn't get you far, trust me.

I loved the fact that they had a currency machine in the lobby - insert dollars and it spits out Rubles (-: no trip to the bank necessary!

Also, it's worth a walk down the road to the cemetery in the back of the hotel. It is VERY cool and interesting!

Even though hotel is not close to city center, subway/metro should be able to get there. Hotel room was clean, friendly people around and the best part is the hot breakfast. Overall it's a good hotel to stay for long or short vacation. Wifi is not free in room but you get free wired internet. Internet is damn slow.

Venky

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. The staff were friendly, accommodating & responsive. When we first checked in, our room was on the small side and without a bath, which when you are travelling with a ten month old is problematic. However, we upgraded to a suite with a second room for only around $15 extra per night. Money well spent!

The one area where the hotel can use some improvement is in the ventilation of the bar. The smell of smoke was noticeable in the lobby.

Other than this, we were very, very happy --unlike everywhere else we stayed in Russia (at over twice the price).

Room Tip: Pay the extra to upgrade to a suite.
