“Good hotel, good location, but be careful with taxi drivers!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Be very careful when you ask for taxi services in Russia, including via hotel concierge. The taxi drivers will always try to rip you off. ALWAYS! The hotel says they charge 1500 roubles to go to Domodedovo airport, but when you get there, they try to charge you more. Have the exact amount in hand, otherwise the dishonest Russian taxi drivers will try to charge you more. Ibis alleges that they are trustworthy drivers approved by the hotel (even though non-related to the Accor/Ibis brands). Don't fall for that. The rest of the service and stay was good.

Dear Mr. Adrian,
Thank you for sharing your experience at ibis Moscow Paveletskaya. I am glad to hear that you had a good stay and service at our hotel met your expectations.
I appreciate your comments on situation with taxi, as we identified your booking and already contacted the company providing taxi service for our hotel guests. Though this service is provided by external company, such a behavior of driver is totally unacceptable. I am very sorry that you faced this situation at the airport and it spoilt your impression of the trip.
Once again thank you for your feedback. We hope that you will visit us again and look forward to welcoming you again in Moscow.


Mrs. Irina Nacharova,

Typical IBIS hotel which is very welcoming in Moscow. Wifi worked fine and room very clean.

Great location for the aeroexpress station being a 5 min walk with a local Starbucks. Not noisy.

Worth considering.

I am just back from 3 nights in this hotel and can highly recommend this hotel for price, location and comfort. I agree with other reviews in that its excellently placed when arriving on the aeroport express train from Domodedovo Airport into Paveletskaya Train Station. Arriving in Moscow at 11pm and trying to find your way when not understanding Russian is not easy however simply walk out the station go left, left again to walk down Dubininskaya street and within 5 minutes you will see the big Ibis sign on top of the hotel to guide you, and its no more than a 15 minute walk. Perfect. I like that Ibis hotels are the same world wide, you will know what your getting and it works, room was comfortable, warm, had tv, double bed, good bathroom, safetey deposit box and was quiet oh and air conditioning if visiting in the summer. If you want more luxuries pay more money however after lots of searching for hotels in Moscow (and its an expensive city for good accommodation) the price I paid was ideal and a bargain.
Breakfast buffet was standard continental breakfast and was good, bar was good and they serve limited snacks (hamd and cheese sandwich etc), open 24hrs, fast free wifi all over hotel (I didn't go higher than 2nd floor).

Other points to note - its on a quiet one way street, limited shops nearby BUT this is Moscow your always a short walk from a cafe or similar or hop on the Metro. I walked from the hotel to Kremlin on cool sunny morning and took me no longer than 45 minutes, passing some art galleries on the way. I think the Serpukhovskaya metro is nearer the hotel than Paveletskaya however I didin't use this one. Also the Lenin Funeral Train is at Paveletskaya and the Swisshotel roof top bar is close by as well for good views of the city.

The only minor negative thing to add is that in Russia smoking is still allowed in hotels, bars, restaurants so if your from England (or similar country where its now banned in these places) you will notice the smoke, and the hotel has a smoking floor. However this will be the same for lots of places in Moscow so you have to accept it, and I didn't find this a problem.

Overall you can't go wrong with this hotel and if your looking for a weekend trip to Moscow on a normal budget (I flew on easyjet for £90 return) you will not be disappointed. Definately stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is smoking floor so avoid if you don't smoke.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel at the end of August while we were in Moscow for an airshow. The hotel is in quite a convenient location, between three metro stations (two of which we used regularly during our stay). The staff at the hotel were very friendly and provided us with assistance in figuring out how to get to places outside of the city. The hotel is also excellent when it comes to providing the tourist documentation required for the Russian visa. We didn't really eat at the hotel except for breakfast which was quite nice and had a lot of variety. The only downside to the hotel is that it is not really located near any restaurants or pubs, but we spent most of our time in the city centre so it didn't matter for us. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
