“Very good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

My wife and me stayed at the Arbat hotel for one night in december 2011. The room was clean and large with a nice view on the street. Internet free and fast by cable in the room. Breakfast from 7.30 to 11.00 and very rich. We had also dinner at 10.00 p.m. and we ate very well: pelmeni, cheese soup and meat with potatoes. Price good if you consider that you are in the centre of Moscow.

I stayed there for 2 nights with the best impression.
It is located at a green street transversal to Arbat Ulitsa , that is a great location indeed. The newest metro station is Smolenskaya , two medium blocks away.
I arrived there early in the morning and they immediately made the check in at a very kindly way .
My room was exactly behind the gothic-impressing-high-soviet-exquisite-heavy Foreign Ministry , one of the 7 skyscrapers of Stalin. if you have a room from 06 to 11 you will overlook this view too.
There is a beautiful garden available and so does an excellent breakfast ,which room offers a very curious ambient soundtrack that I apprecIated a lot for the originality: dance tracks.
Indeed a good way to start the day , instead of those typical romantic instrumental sounds.
I am sure it will be my choice if I come back to Moscow one day.
I accessed the wi-fi at the lobby for free.

We were there for a 3 night stay in Arbat Hotel .

The location was very good , near old arbat street and near the metro station.
The Staff was very friendly at reception and they could speak english quite well which was a big help.
Also, after a 3 day stay in moscow - I had collected coins worth 250 rubles , they we kind enough to give me cash in exchange of the coins :)

The room was not that great - in fact just average and definitely not worth the money spent . Not bright enough , looked quite old ,although we read that the 5th floor was under renovation ,so probably after few months the hotel will have all the rooms refurbished.

Breakfast was good .

Would only recommend to someone after the hotel has gone through renovation.

We just had a 3 night stay at the Arbat hotel. Check in was fast and courteous. Porter took bags to our room, and our passport registration was completed in 15 minutes.

Our room was a standard 1 Queen Sized bed with a portable air conditioning unit (which was great considering the heat wave going on there at the time). Had a colour TV with 1 English channel BBC. Room had a safe. Bathroom 3 piece unit - with shower only. Lots of water pressure and hot water. Overall room was functional. It felt a bit dated - but clean. No internet in our room.

Free Wi Fi in the lobby.

Breakfast was included - it was ok - it had all the basics.

Great location to Old Arbat street - and restaurants/vendors. Only minutes to Kremlin by car.

We had a travel broker involved so our rooms were $200 US /night. Posted rates much higher. Seems a bit high even with a broker - but Moscow is an expensive place - I think the 3rd most expensive city in the world - so $200 a night for a decent room and location was pretty good.

Our experience was good - would recommend Arbat Hotel.

this place was nice, safe and very clean. the staff is friendly and the hostel has a really good location. they can deal with your registration for 800 roubles.
good points : free breakfast, good location, nice common room and bars and restaurants nearby, free internet
bad points : no locker at all, and only 2 showers.

The Arbat Hotel was a pleasant surprise - very clean, plenty of hot water (after travelling on the Trans Siberian this was wonderful!) and in a great position. Just a few minutes from Arbat Street and all its restaurants and shops and walking distance (about 25 mins) to Red Square and the Kremlin. Unfriendly staff? Whilst we found the majority of Russians to be a dour lot, the staff were happy to assist us with our enquiries and one even joked with us! I would certainly return to this hotel.

I stayed there for a week beggining July 2008. Average experience, no service attitude at all except of the businness center guy. Good location but dated hotel. No black out in the rooms. It was bright allready at 04:00 so i couldn t sleep properly.
