If you look on the map of Moscow you would think you are staying on the outskirts of the city. That is quite right in fact. But a metro stop nearby (Partizanskaya) makes for an excellent connection with the city center. In 5 stops, without having to switch carriage, you will find yourself in the heart of the city, Red Square (Plochaed Revolutii).
The location in Izmailova gives you some added advantages: there is an interesting souvenir market nearby, you stay near a beautiful tsarist palace and, importantely, you won't be confronted with huge traffic jams: instead there is a beautiful large park where the tsars used to go on walks and hunting. Also, safety is not an issue in this area.
The hotel is BIG but stands for quality and comfort. It had everything I needed: a comfortable bed, a quiet environment at night and a luxurious breakfast. The free WIFI is an added bonus, not to mention the stunning view you get from some of the higher floors!
It may look big from the outside, but inside you will find yourself treated and in a cozy atmosphere.
Would I recommend this hotel? Absolutely! So much so that I have just arrived back home and have again booked this hotel for September. Why go for unreasonable 5-star luxury when you can come home in a hotel like this?
