“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a great quaint hotel to stay at - the location is amazing and great rates abound on the web. The Hotel is one block away from Tverskaya - the central street in Moscow leading to the Kremlin. This hotel is not a chain, but a unique property, with very involved owners who do a great job selecting helpful and friendly staff. The buffet is pricey, but food is simply outstanding. You will find all of the delicatessen here, except maybe the caviar. Lobby bar also has fresh squeezed juices and awesome expresso on demand (for a fee). The hotel buffet is nto your only option: McDonald's is a 10 min. walk away, near Pushkinskaya square and subway station. Shokoladnitsa, a popular and reasonably priced local hot chocolate/bakery/diner chain, is very close; it is right across the street from the hotel, a bit to your right. You can see it from the hotel's entrance. Juices and snacks are available at a local store that is less than a block away. It is a bit tricky to find as it takes the first level of a residential building. Just ask for "Drakon" food store and the hotel staff will direct you. "Bakhetle" store, a bit further up from Drakon offers a typical super-makrket selection, and is only 5 minutes away.

As far as the interior decor, do not be fooled by somewhat austere furnishings. The look is manimalist, but all furnishings are of European desgin and solid quality. The bed and the matress are simply great. A standard room is intended for 2 people - there is no sofa or other options for the kids.

The service is superb and beats out any other 4-5 star hotel in the same area. WiFi is free, but requires a password to access. If any amenity is not found in the room, keep in mind the cultural differences: some amenities we are used to in the US are not considered standard; call the front desk and everything you need instantly appears.

I spent 3 nights on business here and whilst the hotel is well placed the rest does not merit 5 stars.
On arrival the receptionist did not say "good evening" or "welcome to the hotel" just: passports
no please and a bad welcome.
I checked in to my room - again no one offered to take my luggage to my room - 5 star hotel remember.
The room itself is small with an old fashioned TV and 2 single beds put together. The bathroom is tiny and is made of metal. The shower is large enough for a small person and there is no-where to place your toiletries. I put mine in the cupboard in the entrance.
I had dinner in the bar - not good and tasteless with a slow service. The breakfast was ok.
In general the hotel is well placed but I will not return in a hurry. Do not be fooled by the 5 star title because you only get 3/4 star service.

Spent 5 nights on a business trip. Plus: position, very centrally located, close to underground; excellent breakfast with hot dishes on demand; nice atmosphere at the lounge bar.
Cons: expensive, but ok it's Moscow, what can we do with it? The room, quite small with no complimentary water or fruit basket, which I would expect paying 250€/night or any 4-star hotel; no flat screen tv (ok I don't really watch tv, though...); almost no charging plugs or extremely difficult to find, only one outside the bathroom or the wall, none by the desk, bed or even inside the bathroom!! Very cheap toiletries, no cotton buds or this kind of stuff you even get from most of 3-star hotels; no cups in the bathroom (not even plastic!) and no "do not disturb" sign to hang outside the door, which can be quite annoying. Don't know if I would stay here again, definitely overrated and overpriced, clean and confortable but this lack of details is difficult to accept.

Great find in a city where price/quality are sometimes only loosely connected. Location is terrific, on walking distance from most downtown locations and 5 min from the Metro in a quite safe street. High quality Breakfast with plenty of choice, egg’s done your style on demand, and good selection of bread, fruit and even some local specialties, served in a fashionable room.
Free lowspeed WiFi (enough for mail & low bandwidth surfing). Friendly and helpful staff.
I got a great deal (3 nights for 2 paying) by booking through the hotels website.
Only reason not to give a 5 was the bed. Good mattress, but placed straight on the wooden bed what was making it a bit too hard for me. Might return when ending up in Moscow again.

Third time in Russia, so expected less now. The hotel was a surprise because it seemed more European than Russian. At check in, they ask for a credit card, but normally any hotel does that. Try to find a rate that includes breakfast, you surely wouldn't want to miss it because it's fantastic.

I can't complain the free internet speed handle WiFi calls more than well but if u need higher speed options are available. So make sure to get the free passcodes at the lobby before goin to ur room Food was good but like most places in Moscow $$$$. Restaurants are a block away Rooms are chick and very clean. Food and drinks 24/7 and when I got there the first nigh VIP party was outstanding it was a private party but talk my way in had a blasts. When in a for a quick business trip and got more than I expected.

Word of advice if you come here be ready to spend good money if you want a good experience don't expect cafeteria prices in a 5 star hotel and have fun with out a price tag ...
