Normally we would stay in a smaller hotel or nearer the centre but we were placed here as part of our Golden Ring Tour and absolutely loved it. Besides it is just 5 stops from Red Sq and you will need to use the metro in Moscow at somepoint anyway so its distance was no hardship.
The hotel has an army of staff to keep it running smoothly. All the staff were excellent from reception, doormen, security, customer service staff in the lobby to help with directions or locate your tour, bellboys, lobby bar, meal service, housekeeping and laundry service. For the price it offers everything you need for a holiday to Russia. We were made to feel most welcome.
Rooms were in neutral tones whilst the lobby was audacious! has a good buffet restaurant as well as the gastromic delights of Gusi-Lebedi.
The hotel was built for the Olympics and whilst it has been decorated since we loved the Soviet functionalist architecture and it contrasts with the lovely little Kremlin next door (worth a wander round to see the shops, stalls and museums).
A diverse range of guests and languages from all over the world and the former USSR stay here giving the place a real international atmosphere. You can imagine what it must have been like during the Olympics and for us the spirit of those times still lives on here.
Just 5 stops from Red Square and beside the vast Izmailovskoye Park and mini Kremlin. less
