We came here for the world cup 2018, myself, my wife and my 3 years old daughter. We came from Mauritius.
Hotel was really nice, our room was excellent. Although russian does not speak english, some staffs there manage to do it. The staffs at the reception were really caring and help us a lot. They even help us to order food outside the hotel, arranging taxi etc..
We spend 8 days there and it was really a nice hotel.
I choose this hotel because my usual downtown hotels were full/very expensive during the ongoing FIFA football championship and closeness to the client. Hotel room was clean, also bathroom with basic features and good shower pressure. Small reception with friendly staff that handled the cumbersome wifi connection procedure. Good breakfast but missed a little orange juice and real fresh bread instead of the Russian industrial type. No in hotel dining but a few fast-food places, a restaurant and a grocery store nearby.
Stayed two nights during the world cup. Room was clean, but the furnishing and decor quite out dated. Limited English knowledge but staff managed with the help of Google translate. Hotel is close to a Metro station, but not much happening in this area of Moscow. Takes 30 - 40 minutes with metro to Red Square (with one change). Taxi back to the hotel cost RUB 5000.00 Because of the world cup the prices incredibly high, but assume they will drop to a fairly cheap price after the world cup. Will not return - too far away from the center of Moscow and hardly anything to see/do in this area, plus hotel really just an inexpensive two star hotel (although I think they have 3 stars).
