Nice hotel, offering good value. Location is a little out of the way by not far from The Metro, which connects you to everything. Rooms are spacious and clean. A nice cluster of chairs and sofas in the lobby serve as a welcoming place to gather, if traveling with others. A generous breakfast buffet is included.
There is a money exchange office right in the lobby. Bottled water is delivered to your room daily.

Stayed at the Hoilday Inn, Lesnaya in May 2013 for business purposes.

The hotel has a great location - situated at the end of Tverskaya road which leads directly to the Kremlin (about 1 mile or so away). Its also a very short walk to the Belorusskaya metro station which has good connections for the metro network (circle line and green line). There is also the Beloruskaya Train station round the corner as well.

By the metro station there is also a new business/commericial complex of buildings and these have attracted some nice restaurants to set up shop there as well - a steak house (called Torro), French bistro and others. A good shout if you tire of hotel food.

The hotel itself is pretty much standard fare for this holiday chain. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Room was clean, nice and well maintained - my only gripe was the lack of bottled drinking water. You shouldn't really drink water from the tap in Moscow so I would have thought bottled water was a requirement. I was on the 10th floor and heard a fair bit of the roadworks/building works that are going on nearby - this carried on til about 02:00am. Not the hotels fault of course, just the luck of the draw.

So, here is my normal check list:

Free gym: CHECK! But its quite small and limited.
Free wifi: CHECK! But its only available in the lobby
Real orange juice (ie: non powdered): Not know - didn't do breakfast
One switch to turn off all lights in room: CHECK!

Overall, a good hotel with a very good location if you have to travel again within Moscow and close enough to the Kremlin etc.

Situated in an area under redevelopment, it's a standard chain hotel. Staff are polite and some speak fluent English which is a big bonus in a city where few speak English at all. The lobby is where you can get free wifi but as its a small area I found it busy with people trying to log on. The rooms are basic but clean. The breakfast is very expensive so I didn't bother as next door is a Starbucks for a quarter of the price. The area around the hotel is under development but Moscow itself seems to be like that all over though at times it's bleak and very dusty and dirty. It's a 40 minute walk to red square from the hotel and this is where Moscow excels. The sights are fantastic and blow you away. Of those with a charge, it's a reasonable expense and only a few pounds to go inside the kremlin. Weather was good so we walked to all the sights which means you stumble across great little bars and restaurants. You can spend high prices to eat out but be sensible and it's the same as in the uk. Would I stay in the hotel again? Probably as its fairly inexpensive compared to other chain hotels, clean, fairly easy to find but be prepared for long walks and a building site next door.

Very good service and friendly staff. Rooms have excellent size and cleanliness. The external construction mentioned in many reviews was still ongoing - as is the case for most of Moscow in its drive for modernisation - however I experienced no noise as presumably on the quieter side of the hotel. The restaurant was expensive, however there were other alternatives around (not easy to spot however) and even better was the short metro ride into the centre of Moscow. If you have time take the Circle line (brown) and stop at the first 3 stations for a wow experience of the metro stations of Moscow.

Room Tip: ask for queiter side of building.

The only advantage of this hotel is, that it´s located on walking distance from Belorrusky station. Terrible noise level outside the room almost 24 hours a day. Big construction place just beside of the hotel. When workers stop, you cann´t sleep because of terrible noise from air conditioning/heating system.If you deliver some clothes to laundry service, it doesn´t mean, you will get it back in 24 hours.

This hotel was very modern but in a very classic way (not in a designer way which is what I normally go for) and this is the only reason why I haven't given it 5 stars. It was very clean and comfortable, offered very good service, great location and great food. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.
