“Great location and friendly staff. Free minibar, wifi and fitness centre - just incredible!”
Reviewed October 14, 2009

Great hotel, the staff was very friendly and the receptionists smiled every time we approached them (not a usual thing for Moscow). Perfect location, only two quick metro stops from the Kremlin, you can also walk to the city centre and reach the Red square in about 20 minutes. To get the best rates it is better to approach a reliable tour operator or an agent, otherwise your stay in Moscow will be very expensive. If you are based in the UK, try Go Russia travel group. By the way, the hotel offers free minibar, that was really incredible!

The Katerina City is well placed, clean and friendly. Everyone was helpful, particularly the restaurant and bar staff who were very attentive, with nothing being too much trouble. The food is excellent and varied and there is a free mini bar and breakfast with a choice of foods to suit every taste.
I would love to stay here again if I am ever in Moscow again.

We hade a very good stay at the hotel. The service was pleasant and professional (which I undertstand is not always the case in other Moscow hotels I have heard) The hotel is pleasant and the location along the river gives breathing space in this vast city. /Christian

Stayed for a long week-end. Didn't have a set expectation but everything in the hotel works well. The staff are polite and smile, overall service is great and the location is convenient for both business and leisure with good Metro access and within walking distance to a number of attractions.

Whilst being a bit of a walk from Red Square, it is near to the Paveletskaya station and the Metro which will take you to the centre. The surrounding area is a bit quiet, but it is next to the river, so is pleasant enough.

The hotel itself is very good, the staff were very accommodating, and the facilities were good - free internet, gym/sauna, bar and restaurant. The rooms, whilst slightly smaller than average, were perfectly comfortable and had air-conditioning.

Would definitely consider staying again on a return to Moscow.

Stayed at the Katerina Hotel for a week at the end of June and was very pleasantly suprised. I noticed very competive price offers from other hotels, but on closer inspection the rates that appear "cheaper" do not include what Katerina offers.
First: VAT is included in the rate: most hotels offer their rates excluding VAT (which marks up their rate with 18% on checkout).
Secondly: Katerina Hotel offers free Wireless Internet, whereas other places (Marriott, Holiday Inn) charge you in 1-2 hour pricing models
Thirdly: You get a free minibar with soda, juice, water, beer, snacks and crisps refilled EVERY day !

I was also very impressed about the location being so close to the airport train from Domodedovo, It's literally around the corner. If you are used to taking Taxi/car transfers from any airport, you will appreciate the smooth 40-minute commute to the airport at no risk (traffic jams, motorcades blocking intersection, etc...).

The area is completely safe and very pleasant for walks in a residential part of town (even at night), only located a swift 20-minute walk from the Red Square.
There's a canal running along the street where the hotel is located, and the views from the rooms are great if you're on that side of the building.
Their lobby bar is open 24 hours, which is a plus if you're coming from a faraway timezome and still want to enjoy some food or a drink before going to bed.
Rooms are convenient (a bit bland in style, but hey, I didn't pay for a design hotel either) and offer very comfortable beds, sheets and towels. Most of all, it's clean, fresh and service is outstanding. You will have no trouble finding assistance with cars, computer problems, or hints for going out.

I am coming back in October, and Katerina is where I'm staying. it's the best value for money I found so far.
