We have been plunked down into a nicer, more civilized hotel than we could afford in New York City! Other reviewers have mentioned the value found here, but you have to be aware that it IS sort of in the middle of nowhere in the extensive Moscow suburbs. We used it as a stopover for one night on the way back from the Russian Far East as it is nearer to Domodedovo airport and there is nothing worth staying in any closer. After a 9 hour plane ride and a long taxi ride through "dacha-land" this hotel was truly heaven sent. Be aware that there is usually a LOT of traffic between this hotel and the airport.
It is 21 stories with a glass elevator that runs up the north side from which you can get a view of the city center rising up. The place is gleaming clean, marble and tiles. No off odors, Room really WAS "nonsmoking." Bed was SO comfortable, hallway quiet, no plumbing noises. Almost like home!
YOU CANNOT DRINK THE TAP WATER. This is not stressed enough for travelers who are used to potable water and find it hard to believe that Russia does NOT have potable water in its towns and cities! Russians themselves have a name for Moscow's water that is ever more derrogatory than for their own water where they live.
Get bottled water either from the shopping center a block away or pay $3 for a bottle from the lobby bar. You must use bottled water even to brush your teeth. Our other hotel in the city center at least had a water dispenser for its guests to fill containers from.
The hotel "restaurant" is actually a noisy, smokey brew-pub. With billards. A nice spot for the locals who live in the nearby apartment towers. Menu has many choices and we ate well enough. Breakfast is served in the same place, and had dozens of choices to pick from. Excellent quality and plenty!
There is a nice Business Center, but you need to buy an internet card either in 1-hour or 24 hour amount. I asked the concierge if she could check on our flight as I would not need an hours worth of internet time to do that. She obliged and even smiled!
