“An experience .... Just not a good one”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

I travel to Moscow regularly on business and work within 500m of the cosmos
It is the hotel of last resort, when all others in the area are full

Terrible rooms, both renovated and non renovated. I can't tell the difference. Overheated and dirty. Traffic noise is horrendous if facing the ring road. A place that totally lacks charm
Only once did I try the famous breakfast buffet and never again. It was truly awful.

Italian and Chinese resturant are good the bar is amusing, with the working girls providing a distraction as they approach unsuspecting guest.

Was booked in on business for 2 weeks and left after 2 days. Seriously, do not waste yr money. Prostitutes everywhere, size of the place is like a railway station and the restaurants are a massive rip off. Taking a taxi from here anywhere costs a small fortune. Just awful. No kettle in the room, no hair dryer .. No one speaks English. Just poor.

Io sono stato in questo albergo - muraglia iniziamo a dire che la pulizia delle stanze e soprattutto delle lenzuola sono scarse alcune lenzuola era sporche. la prima colazione è abbastanza scadente come varità dei cibi, e poi la cosa che non sopporto di questo hotel è che ci sono le guardie ovunque ti seguono anche in bagno è assurdo sembra di essere pedinati h24,
cordialità del personale (incluse le guardie) pessima, il mio cane è piu simpatico.

I have been in this hotel - wall i begin to say that the cleaning of the rooms and especially the sheets are scarce few sheets was dirty. Breakfast is quite poor as Variety of food, and then the thing I hate about this hotel is that there are guards everywhere follow you also in the bathroom is absurd seems to be shadowed h24,
friendliness of the staff (including guards) bad, my dog ​​is more sympathetic.

Stayed im march 2012.. Last year during our trip to Moscow we decided to stay in this horrible hotel..it was not a great choice but because of convinient location we took a chance. Hotel staff is very rude ,no interest in customer service. Rooms in this hotels are very outdated ,poor housekeeping and bad smell. For Indians there is no choice of food as they have Chinese and Russian food avalable in their restaurants. There lobby is always crowded with prostitutes and pimps. Coffee shop is big but don't expect any service and quality food .this hotel is just a big building waiting for a renovation..last but not the least I have to say this....I am proud of our Indian hospitality .

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are good for a view

I've stayed here three times over four years leading school trips from England, and the attraction is always the same- for those who want to have a little glimpse of life in Soviet times, it's perfect. The faded grandeur, ageing rooms perfectly complemented by the utilitarian buffet- meat of uncertain provenance in sauce of, well, uncertain provenance. The students wonder at first why this experience has been visited upon them, but by the time they leave, they simply wouldn't have missed it. Whether in the curve of the corridors or the edginess in the lobby, the atmosphere is unmistakeable. The past. Oh, and don't lean out of the bedroom windows.

This hotel had all the facilities I would expect. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom with bath and shower. There was a fridge which was handy for keeping some food and drinks in. Staff spoke good English and were helpful. The breakfast had enough choice to please everyone. It was easy to get into the centre of Moscow from here using the nearby metro station.
