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

The location is absolutely great, you can go walking to a lot of well-known places such as the Red Square and Old Arbat without using any public transport, I think it took me about 15 minutes to go to the Red Square by walk. Although I don't speak too much Russian yet, we didn't have any problem, the staff speaks... More

top location, near the city, 500m from Metro. Service was good. The rooms are quiet. The breakfast was ok, it could be more varied. We have had rooms at the 7. floor. The elevator only works to the 5. floor (for the hole 10 days, one morning was no elevator working), what is very bad if you have a hip... More

We stayed in superior rooms of this property from 8th to 11th of July. Everything was great! Really clean rooms. Great breakfast in BB Cafe, helpful staff. Close to the old Arbat street and night life (13 min by walk). Really close to the Red SQ (only 25 min by walk). Good value for money. The only problem was that... More

Hotel is close to metros or within 30-40 minutes you can walk to major sites. It's clean, good AC (though friends stayed at the same time and had horrible AC experiences), good wifi. Laundry service was very quick. Nice restaurant next door. Overall a good experience.

A fair size hotel (129 rooms) with just a small reception area. The young lady checking us in was very pleasant and quickly completed the passport procedures but I noticed other staff not looking so happy and one almost having-a-go at a customer for querying the details of her taxi booking. I cannot speak for other rooms but ours (220)... More

Walking distance from the Arbatskaya metro station and the Old ARbat street. 1.5-2km walk to the city centre, around 20min. Old school hotel. Nothing great but serves a purpose of a clean well serviced hotel walking distance to nearly everything. 100's of places to eat once you enter Old Arbat area. Excellent location hidden between residences.

I stayed here 3 nights in 1 room with a friend, then another 1 night in a different room after being out of Moscow for a day. Our first room had an air conditioner, however it didn't work and the room got very hot in the middle of summer. Our second had a working conditioner and was quite comfortable. The... 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.
