Stayed there for couple of times during business trips. The rooms without windows are quite scary, but tolerable if you're short of money. The location is main ace of the place. 5 minutes and you see Bolshoi and stuff. If you are looking for a place to lay your head and rest after a busy working/traveling day and you're used to a slight discomfort (e.g. non-working hairdryer) that's a place to stay at.

Great location. But very loud, hot, the shower was brocken, the door didnt close. I would call it a "back-packer" hotel, very very budget. And staff wasnt friendly in our case. We expected a bit more for money.

Room Tip: I am not sure if there are any good room

Location is great ... Staffs are helping instead of one of them who is not kind at all ... Rooms are clean and just good for sleep ... You should stay all day out and come to hotel for nap or sleep ... I just checked out today and writing for you at bibloteka restuarant in saint petersburg ...

The location was perfect and within walking distance to the Kremlin, Red Square, Mcdonalds, supermarkets, metro etc.. I stayed in a single room with no window in June and it was small! Cute and comfortable though but I don't know if it would be the best for everyone's likes because it was warm at times.

The bathroom is very small and water goes all over the place when you take a shower and its not the type of shower that has tile where in some countries you just use a squeegy to mop it up so you have to develop strategies to use the shower but at least its your own and private. It might not be good for a tall person.

There is a free breakfast from around 7:30-10:30 am I think and has muesli/granola, toast, yogurt, muffins and simple things like that but it was very enjoyable. The front desk ladies all spoke great English and were very helpful.

Wireless internet is available on the first floor only. The bed was comfortable and clean towels and refill of toiletries everyday. Other than the front desk ladies, I dont think most people speak English. The one lady phoned a taxi for me back to the airport for 1200 R...

I think this hotel is affortable for what they say about Moscow. I would still recommend it but the single rooms with no window are extremely small and its very basic but if you prepare yourself for that and that most dont speak English I think you will have a very enjoyable time.

It was a great location, central to everything. However although the hotel was clean, the room was very small, up in the attic on the fourth floor. It smelt damp, there was a roof window. My husband banged his head on the light every time he went into the room. There was no wardrobe, the bathroom was smaller than any wardrobe. You couldn't have a shower after each other because the shower was flooded. You couldn't put paper down the toilet, it had to go in the bin but you didn't daily maid service.
