This 3 star hotel certainly is in a perfect location, on a quiet side street a 2 minute walk from the main street Nevsky Prospekt. Also, it's just a 5 minute walk from the Moscow train station, the Stockmann department store and the huge new Galleria shopping mall. The metro station is right next door, and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from close to the hotel.
The hotel itself is a standard 3 star hotel with clean rooms and comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet has all the basic stuff, even though it is recommended that one has breakfast around 8 am before most guests appear and there's nothing left... In the restaurant they serve a 5 o'clock tea with an assortment of biscuits and cakes free of charge every day.
The service is not the greatest in the restaurant, as there are no smiles and the service is slow. Behind the front desk, the service varies. We got excellent service from the manager. Unfortunately, one of the receptionists was really rude to all of us on several occasions. Thankfully, the other receptionist the next day really made up for by it helping us with several different things during the day.
Also, the restaurant next door called Café Cat (Ket) with Georgian cuisine should not be missed. Make sure to book a table though in advance.
