My girlfriend stayed here in the winter of 2012. Although the price was affordable and the location great (a 5 min walk to the Bolshoi), this is a terrible hotel and should be avoided.
Their heating was not sufficient. The hottest setting on the dial was barely perceptible, causing us to shiver enough to request for an additional heater, which thankfully they had. Still, troublesome.
The mattress was terribly flimsy and caved in in the middle. Seemed like a very worn piece. We made another request, for a new mattress, which they did not have. So they gave us a new additional bed, which wasn't great, but thankfully firmer than the original mattress.
They don't have free wifi, and when we paid for it, the signal kept dropping. Infuriating, especially since we were so peeved and were looking for another hotel by this time.
Lastly, the counter attendant was most unhelpful, and actually rolled her eyes at me when I told her we wanted to check out (we had booked for two nights). It got so bad that I confronted her with "what's your problem", to which she just walked away and got another staff to assist us.
Both did not speak proper English, so you won't get much help from them, even if they were in the mood.
Stay away 100%.
