Full Renaissance Olympic Hotel review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2013/09/renaissance-olympic-hotel.html


Introduction
Located rather far, at about 80 - 150 minutes drive from Moscow Domodedovo International airport, Renaissance Olympic Hotel / Renaissance Moscow Olympic Hotel in Russia has the excellent service, well maintained amenities and grand sophisticated elegance worthy of any 5-star hotel in the Marriott brand. Despite the poor location, Renaissance Olympic Hotel overcomes this with a full in-house service and facilities, several nearby attractions, restaurants and convienence stores, and shuttle services to places further away.


Ambience
Ambience within Renaissance Olympic Hotel is modern contemporary, with moderately high ceilings, clean acute lines, bright lighting in a myrid of colours, and sharp contrasting features like different furniture. Decor throughout Renaissance Moscow Olympic Hotel focuses on space exploration, and the hallways are lined with classic photographs of the Russia space age. The place has a charming sophistication, and pausing to take in the different details around the hotel is recommended.


Room
I stayed in the Twin Single Room of Renaissance Olympic Hotel. Rooms are comfortably cosy, but long rather than wide, which means narrow passageways. I found it odd that the bathroom, which has a bathtub, is on a raised platform. Television channels are limited, but the work desk is sufficiently large, as is the wardrobe. However, I felt Renaissance Olympic Hotel should have provided more bottled water on a daily basis.


Food
Food at Renaissance Olympic Hotel ranges from the traditional Russia style cuisine, to International selections, due to the numerous restaurants here. The buffet style spread at Vienna Cafe is tasty, with good quality ingredients, but range is limited. The room service menu is also limited, not too tasty, and rather expensive, I recommend to avoid it. Transsiberian Restaurant, while slightly expensive, does good quality, tasty, classic Russian dishes, and trying it at least once during your stay is highly recommended.


Service
Service at Renaissance Olympic Hotel is very good. As a start, all service staff are able to communicate in English, which isn't a given elsewhere. Staff will carry out requests quickly and efficiently, and are knowledgable about the various amenities of the hotel, and the surrounding area. I also like that the hotel provides shuttle services to popular destinations that are further away, as well as complimentary umbrellas upon request. Another plus point is that Renaissance Moscow Olympic Hotel is able to provide the confirmation letter and entry voucher required for application of the Russian Visa, which saves you money and time to get it yourself.


Facilities & Activities
The facilities at Renaissance Olympic Hotel are extensive. You'll practically never have to leave the hotel at all during your stay, as you can get everything here, including hair dressing and beauty services, floral services and more. The Propect Mira Metro is only a short 5 - 10 minute walk away, and that area has many convienence stores, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, clothing stores, bars and more.

Just returned from 3 night business trip to Moscow and found the hotel to be vey good! As other reviewers have mentioned ALL Moscow hotels are exorbitantly expensive and this hotel is no exception!
Check in very quick and efficient and was good that almost all staff spoke excellent English. Room spacious, spotlessly clean and vey comfortable and offering more English TV than usual in Moscow.
Used the swimming pool which was very nicely maintained and not too busy.
Didn't use the restaurants at all, the price of breakfast was way out of my league, so opted to take breakfast in the bakery cafe in the lobby - still very expensive, small coffee and 2 pastries about £12.00!
Location is a little way from the centre, but metro very quick and easy, about 20 mins from Red Square. Used taxi to and from Paveletskyi station, about 20 mins and £7.00, to use the aero express train to Domodedovo airport, which is a very good service!
Would definitely stay at the Renaissance Moscow Olympic again, mainly because location is very close to our Moscow representatives office, but also because it is very nice standard!

Nice clean hotel with good facilities, location is ok.
Downstairs restaurants offer average food, but good alternative for a long taxi trip into town!
Only no wifi in the room is like living in the medivial
Prices are high but that is a Moscow thing!
During exhibitions prepare your selve to organise taxi that is a big problem.
Waiting time up to one hours.
In general on a scale from 1/10 I think it is a 7.5 hotel.
Non risk.... But also not special..... The word is suitable for a short stay,

Great staff, nice lobby and welcoming atmosphere. The bar has a pretty good caprese salad and the restaurant has lots of great options. The breakfast buffet was very nice as well. The food was my favorite thing about the hotel, actually. The beds weren't spectacular but the rooms themselves were very nice and clean. There's a shuttle to the red square with very convenient timings and it's only a short trip away. There's also a beautiful park a 5 minute walk away and a supermarket just across the street. If you need to exchange money, there's a place to exchange it in the lobby (it's 24 hours with a few breaks here and there).

Room Tip: There is free wifi in the lobby so if you can manage a floor on the lower levels you might be able t...

First, rooms very clean and modern, you could open the windows and sleeping quality is good. Location not the best and only one nice restaurant around (at least we found one). Breakfast selection and quality good, but to pay extra for Latte Machiato is a NO GO. Bar is ok for a beer after work, but not very nice setting. Hotel is to big. Check out fast and competent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the higher floors and for "garden view".

Helpful staff, good quality of rooms with adequate bar and restraint facilities. It is what the big chains do well and I have difficulty in finding faults..
As with any hotels in Moscow you need to factor in the traffic to get from the hotel to wherever you want to visit. Value for money wise Moscow hotel prices are out of step with other leading cities and this hotel is no exception.

Room Tip: High floors are generally better and there are a number of corner rooms that are much larger than th...

Thank you for recommending our hotel. We are pleased to know you enjoyed staying with us. There are two subway stations near the hotel, both of which can bring you to Red Square in about 15 minutes, as you stated. However, next time you are here, feel free to try our Free Shuttle Bus service, which takes guests from the hotel – directly to Red Square and back. We look forward to hosting you again.
