This I probably a 4.5 rating due to the cold showers but its great location (walking distance to all the major sites) clean large quiet room (superior double booked room 201) friendly staff, good breakfast (couldn't say excellent as believe it or not there is NO BACON) and reasonable price pushed it to a 5/5.
In Moscow they have a district heating scheme that supplies hot water to all the buildings and we were told the whole district was suffering at the time (last weekend) we were there so you need to avoid peak times in the morning and evenings to have a hot shower / bath.
The hotel is tucked away which is great for quiet nights but the taxi driver couldn't find it at first which is a common problem I understand. A little more detail on how to locate it would help visitors and some illuminated signage in the street More
