After a longish trip (tested the new easyjet flight, a little long for no recline) i arrived at the metropol after taking the aeroexpress from domodedovo which was a positive experience. However my arrival at the Metropol was not very positive... After paying a French booking agency the totality of my hotel fees for the Metropol i was quite disappointed to arrive and find that the receptionist could not find my booking... The hotel agency wasnt answering the phone (it was 1AM) so i was obliged to pay for a standard room (i had booked superior on the voucher) at double the price i was paying the room initially. This was quite annoying so the next day i asked my receptionist to give both the hotel and hotel agency a hollering. To my surprise when i came back monday evening i was immediately upgraded to a Junior Suite..(!) with an apology and the hotel agency reimbursed my first night. From that point everything was up hill. Not only is the metropol a gorgeous imperial landmark in the centre of Moscow but they have kept it more or less in its original state - which is the reason it probably cant be compared to the new and swanky hotels quality wise, but if you want traditional i would recommend you stay here. Service was top notch and the night barman deserves a raise. In general a positive experience and i would definitely consider staying here again.
