Last May, I won a voucher for a 2-night stay (at deluxe room incl. breakfast & 30 min. massage) from an Ebay auction. The reservation (by email) was made easily and quick! So this September, I decided to visit the Russian Capital.
The hotel lobby is quite luxurious, decorated with a colorful modern style. The reservation staff was friendly and keen to help you. The location of the hotel (Olympic Stadium of 1981 Olympic Games) is not the best possible since it’s an hour walk from the red square (3,5 km). The closest Metro (tube) station is 5-7 min walk and it is located 4 stations away (20 min) from the Red Square (ticket price aprox. 0.5£). The hotel provided a very convenient shuttle bus service every hour to Red Square and Pushkin’s Square. I would not recommend to use taxis during the daytime, since they are very expensive (20£ for Red Square). On the other hand, during the night it is the only safe way to move form the hotel since the surrounding area is very quite and you may have a feeling of insecurity!
Hotels room are very nice and well equipped (check my photos) but quite small (9-11 m2). But, I really enjoyed the extra king size bed. The views from my room isn’t great since you may notice a lot of buildings under construction (check my photos).
I did not have the chance to try hotels restaurants but the breakfast was fabulous as the selection and quality of the buffet was first class. Regarding the interior swimming pool do not have great expectations since it is quite small with ’80 style. The hotel decrypts a spa section, which actually is a small room where the massages and treatments are carried out. Although the massager was very good!
Concluding, this is a nice hotel (luxurious clean rooms & fabulous breakfast) locate in an average location. If you get a voucher from eBay is a real bargain!
Be aware of the hotel’s taxi drivers they are very expensive, for example they ask 2700 rubbles (60£) to the airport, when the real price is the half!
