I spent five days here on a first time vacation trip to Russia, and the hotel definitely met my expectations. Finding the hotel from the metro the first time was a bit difficult albeit the signage at the metro station, but was easy afterwards. I found the area ok at any time of day or night, and no reason to feel insecure.
The staff speaks the necessary amount of English and were quite friendly. They also dealt with Visa registration automatically. The room was large and comfortable, but smelt a bit of smoke even though it was non-smoking. I won't say the decor is the most beautiful I've ever seen, but everything was clean and practical. The shower curtain was a bother though, slipping into the shower all the time and providing little protection from spilling water.
At breakfast, there's a choice of some hot dishes (omelette, sausages, fried chicken etc.) where some were changed daily, and was ok. The cold cuts were the same each day, and could have been more plentiful.
Getting into Moscow is a 20-minute Metro ride and 7-8 minutes walk to the station. Once accustomed to this, the very frequent trains made this painless. If you're home before midnight there's a small shop in the same building as the hotel, which is convenient.
In all, I think the hotel provides great value for the price, and especially for Moscow. I'd be happy to stay there again.
