“Really enjoyed my stay here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

1. Easy check in for us!
2. Room is nice, very clean, and the bed was awesome!
3. Breakfast offers a great variety!
4. Friendly staff at the reception!
5. Easy access to the Metro!
6. Minutes away from a shopping/restaurant street.

I'd recommend it...I mean, if you are from America where you are trained to enjoy constant smiles and sucking up to you, then this may be the wrong hotel for you! I didn't get mad if I came across an employee who didn't smile...if I needed something it got done and that's all that mattered! the old fashioned look didn't bother me a bit, on the contrary, I thought it was nice to sort of go back in time.

Room Tip: I requested a room higher up ( based on reading that recommendation here) and I got it! Give it a tr...

It's easy enough to book via their own website, but very impossible to cancel or rebook.

Contact was made very hard and wilfully delayed to make sure they can charge one night accommodation and administration fee for providing exactly NO service.

As soon as companies like this have your credit card details they more than happy to use it.

the staff are helpful, the food is good, the rooms are good, but a little too "old Russia". By that i mean, lots of gold and heavy curtains and fabric.
I had a double room for single occupancy and they only gave me a single duvet. i asked for a large double duvet, they brought me another single one. The housekeeper told me that they did not have doubles. so not the ideal place if you are looking for a romantic cuddle under the duvet!!! i have now stayed in 4 Moscow hotels and like either Mallmaison or Mercure Arbat Hotel. i should really stick to those two, but its fun to keep looking for that hidden gem..... The Golden Ring isnt it!!

I stayed in golden ring hotel for 2 nights , it is a central hotel , so near to the most famous street Arbatsky . The hotel is clean . Everything was very good . Restaurant on the roof of hotel is also very good , has a nice view of Moscow . Another advantage is to be so near to the metro station Smolenskaya , very easy connection to all the airports .

At the registration desk upon arrival, the hotel staff could not find my booking, thus causing problems and making me worry a lot.
When booking, I mentioned in special comments, that I needed one king size bed, but the room was equipped with 2 single beds, moved together. It was really very uncomfortable, because the beds kept moving apart. Apart from that, the room was equipped with toiletries, towels , etc for ONE person, although I stated clearly there were 2 PEOPLE.
The key didn't open the room easily, we spent about 3-4 minutes each time, trying to get inside our room.
At the registration desk, hotel personnel didn't bother themselves smiling, and were rather rude.
When ordering a taxi, the concierge told the taxi service another address, so we experienced problems, because the taxi driver didn't know where to go. And in the end charged us way too much. ( I have a question here: WHY WORK WITH THE TAXI COMPANY WHOSE DRIVERS CHEAT? HOTEL GUESTS ASK THE HOTEL TO CALL A TAXI BECAUSE IT IS SUPPOSED TO WORK WITH AN HONEST TAXI COMPANY)

This is one of my favourite hotels when I stay in Moscow on business. A little bit of old soviet luxury, which cannot be found easily these days with the Global hotel chains pretty much taking over the rest of the hotels in Moscow. Very reasonably priced compared to other hotels, friendly staff, rooms decent size, as well as bathrooms. The restaurant has magnificent views and very nice food too. Live authentic Russian music takes you back in time. Brilliant! I would give it five stars really, but being British, I'll stay on a conservative side with four....:-)

Very good hotel with the excellent breakfasts, very quiet, high speed internet connectivity (WiFI and LAN) for free for guests (by the way, my colleagues who stayed at Radisson SAS Slavyanskaya, just right over the river had much more worse internet connection than myself). Friendly receptionists - I got the room even when I had arrived early in the morning. No traffic noise in the rooms, rooms very well-equipped.
