My wife and I found this a very friendly hotel with the staff very willing to be helpful. The hotel perhaps is used more by Russians than English speakers as we are, but for us that added to the experience of seeing how Russians live. The receptionist spoke English and could solve our little problems.
The location is good. It is quiet. It is twenty minutes walk to the Kremlin. There are two metro stations within ten minutes walk. We used the metro every day.
For brunch, we found a delicatessen about 200 metres away, on the main road beside a set of lights. There were only Russians there but we were able to point and buy whatever we wanted. You can sit down at a table there and order a coffee as well.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay in June 2013.
