I only stayed one night at the hotel but have to say the service from the staff was wonderful and I felt looked after without it being intrusive.
The hotel is across the road from Red Square, but this is Moscow so it still takes a 5 minute walk to get there. I was stuck at the back of the hotel so disappointed that my view consisted of what appeared to be a college classroom gazing up at me rather than the sun rising over Red Square. But hey ho.
Food was delicious although rather expensive and atmosphere in the bar (which served meals) was relaxed and comfortable.
The hotel itself is very old and grand however my room (although not quite to my taste) was clean and very comfortable and the bathroom was modern.
Would I recommend it for a short stay? Definitely.
