Very hard to find ; no address on the building or even the name of the hotel. However very nice area of town and close to the Kremlin; it is a mile walk down Arabat street which has a lot of shops and restaurant or the metro is close. The restaurant is good!

This is as central as anyone could wish, close to the Arbat area, and walking distance , within about 15 minutes to the Kremlin, lots of nice cafes and restaurants nearby. Many shops are located on Arbat just 3 minutes walk away. Rooms are excellent and lifts are closeby with water provided in the corridor, beautiful paintings and art sculptures... More

The Hotel is in a good location, you can walk to the Kremlin and Red Square in about 15 or 20 minutes. It is also close to a supermarket and Old Arbat Street where there are lots of restaurants. The room I was allocated was in need of renovations, it was quite old. There was also construction work going on... More

My review is different from those below. I think the reasons for my disappointment are because for much less in price in Saint Petersburg we had a wonderful experience. The WiFi was very poor. We had to go to the lobby at night and use the bb cafe WiFi which was inconvenient. The room was only a standard room but... More

My girlfriend and I had a pleasant stay here, the staff on the reception desk were all very helpful. It was good that most of them could speak English. It was a shame that they had work being completed to the entrance way but I could understand why as it will improve the entrance hugely. The hotel had clean rooms... More

Very nice hotel in the historical centre of city . Clean, friendly atmosphere, good breakfasts. Nice view on the Moscow's roofs and dome of the church from the windows on the 7th floor. Very close to metro, Arbat street, Gogol's museum etc.

We were there at the end of July. I must admit I didn't expect it to be so good. The location is great - on a quiet street but close to the Old Arbat (less than 10 minutes' walk), Red Square (about 25 minutes), the underground station was also close. From the hotel we also walked along the Tverskoy boulevard... More

Overall the location of this hotel is very good. To walk to Red Square is less than 30-35 minutes, 10-15 minutes to the Metro, and 10-15 minutes to Arbat street with plenty of restaurants and a lively atmosphere. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood with several embassies in the area. For the price (under $100.00USD) ii is a very... More

Nice hotel. Half of all rooms are renovated, half not. My parents stayed in superior room on 7th floor, and it was super. Amazing view on the capital, huge window, nice, clean, white room. Only one thing, elevator was broken. My room was on fourth floor, it was rather Sovietic one :) but still cute and clean. Beds are great.... More

This has been a lovely place to stay, albeit briefly whilst here in Moscow. Wonderful deco, very helpful front desk staff with a good level of English to help you with trip plans and taxis etc. THe breakfast was plentiful and buffet was replenished regularly. I also ate in the evening there, and again a good standard and not too... More

Staying in Arbat

Neighborhood Profile
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
