I concur with the reviewer regarding the breakfast. Super. I have always loved Russian hotel breakfasts, and this one had lots of Western options, too. I also concur with the reviewer with the incredible phone bill---everything is in rubles EXCEPT the phone rates, apparently (but it does not say that it is $6 instead of 6 rubles; you have a big surprise when you check out!).

Otherwise, an "okay" hotel. I was surprised when I drove up after my 2.5 hour trip from the airport (Moscow has terrible traffic) and saw the neon facade--was this a casino? The front desk clerk did not offer to get a bellman to bring up my luggage and my minibar hadn't been plugged in--everything was hot. However, the room was comfortable (though the duvet was sized for a double bed, even though I had a king) and I appreciated the gratis bottle of water they provided each day since you should not drink the tap water. The location is great--Old and New Arbats are just across the street, as well as a Seventh Continent grocery store. Short trolley ride to Red Square, too. Lots of hotels to choose from in Moscow (though all pretty expensive); might try another one the next time.

Probably the best breakfast I've had anywhere in the world - a harpist played for half an hour during the peak time and the selection of food was second-to-none (cereal, full cooked breakfast, eggs, German cheese and meat, Champagne and fruit, breads, croissants, yoghurt etc. etc. etc ... in fact the only thing missing was black pudding :-) The room was nicely furnished but too warm - I had to ask for the key to open the window to cool it down a bit. A nice bar downstairs with a piano has a very pleasant ambiance, but drinks are expensive .... and ... ummmm some of the most beautiful prostitutes I've ever seen :-) All very tastefully done, but probably not ideal as a family hotel. The arbat and novi arbat are nearby, and provide quite a variety of entertainment and facilities. This hotel is about a 30 minute walk from Red Square. The biggest problem with this hotel is the high cost of the rooms though.

Stayed two nights on a business trip. My room overlooked the golden ring bvd and faced one of the stalinistic cathedrals surrounding the city (with the bed positioned so that you have the best view, dramatic indeed). The room was large, clean and up to what you'd expect in a five star. I did not have lunch nor dinner in the hotel, but breakfast was copious. Staff is formal but not unfriendly. The immediate neighborhood is simply traffic: the hotel borders two of those typical three- to six-line highways crossing this city (you do not hear but a slight buzz in the hotel though). Once you get passed those and head for the red square, you're in a pleasant traffic-free shopping district. Historical city centre (red square) is half an hour walking or so.

This is nice hotel but I would not rate it a 5 star. Rooms are clean. Don't use the phone for calls. I got charged 350$US for a 25 minute call to Canada even though it said 6 roubles/minute in the binder. Breakfast buffet was alright but way too expensive at 1300 roubles.

So me a favor and go eat at the McDonlald's accross the street.
