Reviewed 31 May 2014

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights as part of a group tour of the city and then St Petersburg afterwards. The reviews I have read are largely unanimous and I concur as well. To be fair our room was a corner suite and therefore quite spacious. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the TV OK, and the bathroom quite acceptable. The weather was hot and the air conditioner worked well.
We only had breakfast which was fine, a decent selection of hot and cold..
We didn't use the bar, or the attached hotel for evening meals or spa fitness facilities.
The décor is old fashioned, wood furnishings, and brown/cream wall coverings. We agreed we wouldn't want to stay in those surroundings for a week say. However the main thing is that we found the hotel clean and comfortable.
Unless you stay at the Four Seasons, Marriott, Metropole, Ritz Carlton or other worldwide hotel groups you won't be closer to Red Square and Kremlin than the Hotel Budapest. I was at these destinations in 10/15 minutes..

Room Tip: Our room was 520 which is a front room overlooking the street. The street has one or two bars and so...

The hotel was apparently purchased by the same group that owns the famous Metropol Hotel, near Red Square. This hotel is also well located, but really needs some work. The breakfast included in the room rate was quite mediocre. But across the street is a great Asian fusion place with a good bar. Skip the bar at the hotel, as it is filled with smoke, and the staff is totally indifferent. The front desk staff is excellent however, and they speak really good English. The hotel is almost across the street from the Bolshoi, and only 2-3 blocks to Red Square, and the Kremlin, as well as shopping and restaurants, rather upscale, I might add. I had the weirdest bed, not quite a single bed, but not quite as big as a double. Weird!!!

Room Tip: Away from stairs, street, and elevator.

We were in Russia for new years and was our first time. I think the selling point for this hotel was the location - perfect for sightseeing in Moscow, less than 10 minutes walk to the Red Square and Kremlin. The hotel itself is dated, but I thought this gave the hotel a very 'communist' Russian charm - clearly quite opulent back in those days. The rooms were a good size and kept clean. For the location great value compared to other hotels in the area (especially over the New Years Period), however Moscow is fairly expensive in itself. The breakfast was adequate - cereals, breads, pastries and meats etc, and on the last day we ate at the 5 star sister hotel 'Peter 1' which is connected next door which was great! The staff were helpful and friendly too - booking us taxis and tickets to the circus on request. I'd definitely recommend the hotel as a great base for sightseeing.

Location is very good. Walking distance to the red square and the to Kremllin. Hotel itself does not face Western standards. Small room, average breakfast and very expensive. I lost my roomkey and it took about more than 30 minutes before they bring me my sparekey.

Nice old school hotel on a very good location. Easy to walk to all highlights. Good to reach by underground, which is a must see attraction! Good breakfast served. At the time no WiFi. Large room. Don't expect to much luxury, but perfect location!

We spent a long weekend with my wife in Moscow. We selected this hotel as it is located very close to Red Square and it was priced lower than its peers. Breakfast is good, staff is helpful. Rooms are bit below expectations and it can get noisy at night because of the bars/clubs below. I can still recommend it if you need a relatively cheap overnight stay in the heart of the city.

If you like Motel 6 and less, this is your kind of hotel. NOT my kind of hotel. No English spoken while we were there 4 nights. A Russian friend booked this, and was able to communicate all of our needs to the front desk. Rooms are tacky, worn, hot and noisy !!! You could lift the secure safe from the shelf and place it anywhere.....or just take it with you. (hmmm??) We had drinks, & wifi at Peter 1...next door. It is like night and day between these hotels, and the prices are comparable....and that is where the similarity stops. A terrible introduction to hospitality in Moscow! The taxi to the station was a rip off, quoted one price before we got in, then double the price before opening the trunk to give us our luggage.
