“lovely”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

this hotel is huge, it has 25 floors, a beautiful restaurant on the 25th floor with views over the city. the bar food on the 2nd floor is fine, but lacks choice after a few days. there is a pool and gym, unfortunately i didn't have time to try these out. it is in a great position for exploring, right next to sokolniki park and the metro. staff were helpful and the room was spacious and clean. There is a good selection of food for breakfast in the buffet restaurant, including freshly made omelets.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Sokolniki. Great situation to explore Moscow - and right next to the subway - which in all honesty - is fairly easy to understand.
Room large and spacious - with everything i needed. Hotel also boasts a pool and gym - if you have any energy left after exploring Moscow. Food was fine and staff were very helpful. All in all excellent!

Room Tip: Higher up would be better - plenty of lifts!

A very modern hotel, a bit off the beaten track.
I travelled as a part of a group, yet the staff was extremely welcoming and attended to every problem, efficiently.
Some don't speak any language other than Russian.
room spacious with airconditioning. free wi fi.
we had half board and food was plentiful and delicious.

Hotel is huge it has 25 floors and therefore I would expect the staff to be very efficient and know what they are doing, however, as much as they do try to help, they could do a lot better.

Room was big and had a safe and mini bar as well as a coffee/tea area. I didn't use the mini bar, but if you are staying for a long time, as I was, then you can ask for the mini bar to be emptied to use for your own purposes, but this comes with a small fee. Bathroom had a shower and a bath tub and was cleaned daily and products replenished, however sheets and towels were only changed every 4 days. There was however, free wi fi in the room, which was a bonus.

Whilst I was there the swimming pool was being refurbished and was out of action, but as far as I was aware and was told at reception I could use the gym. This proved to be quite a drama every time I wanted to use it as the staff couldn't speak English and were forever telling me it was closed. Upon further insistence, I did manage to get in and use the gym and the 2nd time I had to go up to the main reception to ask them to call the gym and tell them I would like to use it and not the swimming pool! When I did manage to get in, there was a lot of room and a lot of weights equipment as well as cardio machines and other things to use.

As for breakfast this was the biggest breakfast room I ever saw! Massive selection of food, from breads to cakes, to pancakes and waffles and also a Japanese selection as well. Extremely well catered for everyone's needs. They had plenty of seating but at peak times, it was a struggle to find an empty table.

However I would not recommend eating at the hotel bar! Food was stale and not presented very well considering the hefty prices. Staff were slow and you had to keep calling them over if you wanted to order anything. There are plenty of good restaurants to visit in the area, short distances away from the hotel and 2 supermarkets as well, one massive one across the road.

Area round hotel was safe enough and there were big gardens nearby with lots to do and a lot of activity. Metro stop is across the road and about 10 stops away from the Red Square. Metro is really cheap and the best way to get around as road transport is constantly at a stand still due to the amount of traffic coming in and out of the city. Best way to get to the airport is by train link that runs straight to the airport from central station.

By the way if you are a priority club member, don't expect much, it was a hit and miss scenario. My colleague got free water every day in his room, I only got it once!

Most important in this hotel was comfortable location – near metro Sokolniki. Good free WIFI. My room was standard, clean and quiet good. The staff was not quiet professional and attentive with guests. I asked them about slippers and bathrobe, but they didn`t bring me neither slippers nor robe. I liked restaurant on the 25th floor, but the price was rather high for such meal. Then, breakfast was not included in the price. Besides, I didn`t find the brush for the shoes. I think they should do all the best for the clients in the hotel of this level as Holiday Inn.

it is a typical business hotel - big, with lots of conference facilities and business visitors. the location is far away from center in a sleeper district. however, the metro station sokolniki is across the road. it takes 6 metro stops to get to the heart of the city - this is about 10 minutes. by car it will take about 30 minutes in traffic.

as to the rooms, they are quite spacious, basic but convenient. breakfast was lots of selection, certainly not typical 4 star.

the staff was ok. no complaints. the taxi desk is handy but very pricey - almost 40 dollars to get to the city. you can catch a car waiving on the street for 10-15 dollars. however, we had to use hotel taxi sometimes, and ismail on the taxi desk there was very helpful.

overall, a good choice for budget stay, if you dont mind distance to the center.

The hotel is located near a metro station and near shops & restaurants.
The staff is very slow and has little service awareness.
Ordered wake-up call which never occurred and they didn't even apologize.
Didn't feel I received good value for money.
