“ups and downs”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

Location is absolutely lost by any means but subway takes you to intersting places in just 15 minutes. Considering this the location is good.
Room was ok for an inexpensive hotel, however, walls are like paper and I thus was waken up several times in the night as the guy next door screwed his girl every 90 minutes and she obviously liked it by making respective sounds.
Matress was most uncomfortable.
All in all ok for the price considering it was Moscow, but really not a great place to stay.

Booked through hostelbookers.com
Kalinka opened about 18 months ago so has a nice newish renovted feel. It is a cheap hotel, but we found the location to be quite convenient as it was close to 2 metro stops and from there only 4 stops to the centre of Moscow.
It was a bit difficult to find at first as there is no number on the door but when you get inside you quite safe as there are usually at least 2 security men on the ground floor entry and the hotel is a couple of floors up in the building.
Some of the staff spoke a little English which we found to be a great help, there is not much information provided for tourists though. But we pretty much found that for Russia in general.
Our room was a good size, warm, with a clean bathroom and TV.
Breakfast is not included but you do get a kettle and a small fridge so it's easy to make your own and there is a 24 hour supermarket very close by (next to McDonalds on the main street).
Nearby (just before MacDonalds) is a huge cavernous basement bar called Krschka (look for the orange sign with beer glasses on it), if you ask nicely they will even bring you a menu in English. We found eating and drinking out in Moscow to be quite expensive but the prices at this bar were cheap and the staff friendly

  • Liked — Location, good room
  • Disliked — hard to find as there is no number on the doorway.
