“Adequate business hotel”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile


Solid business hotel. Older, retro interior design but well kept. I stayed there on business for 6 nights. Elevator is about 10 stairs up from the lobby requiring assistance if you have a lot of luggage. My room was of adequate size with a king bed and an entry area with plenty of room for luggage and the closet. High ceilings with painted crown molding. air conditioning worked very well. The bathroom was clean and modern with a small -I mean WAY small - shower stall. Seriously, I fit but could not turn around. Lots of water pressure made it work out ok. Service was good, problems resolved quickly. (Springs were popping through my mattress. I didn't complain till the third day, but they replaced the bed immediately). Housekeeping was inconsistent but only a minor irritation. Everything was serviced each day, but little things like the replacement of amenities and room staging varied with the housekeeper. Staff was responsive with varying levels of English, but enough to get by.

The only major irritant was noise from the rooms next door and from the courtyard bar/restaurant.

This is the first place I've been in a long time where no level of sustainability is practiced other than a card to hang up your towels if you don't want them replaced. This does not seem to be a priority in Moscow.

Internet worked reasonably well and was included in the room cost. They give you a code that will work with one device only. I asked for a second code and received one with no problem. It was fast, but disconnected often even with constant use.

Nice, typical Eastern European breakfast was included in my room rate. (Fruit, salmon, cheese, salami, juices, eggs, hot cereal, pastries, water).

The hotel is well located close to restaurants and major attractions. Don Pablo Restaurant is in the hotel and quite good, but expensive.

This property is nothing fancy, but it more than adequately serves the need of a business traveler.

I stayed at the hotel for one night (on business) before relocating to a more competitively priced hotel in Moscow. Basically with the Marco Polo one pays for location, which is excellent, but in other respects the hotel does not come close to what one would expect at a '4 star hotel'. Firstly, the service was not sustained after a pleasant welcome - the waiters stand around looking at their i-phones (breakfast was a particularly slow experience for service). Secondly, the room was somewhat tired and ordinary in appearance, sound proofing was less than expected and the bed pillows were uncomfortable. Thirdly, the prices were shocking (I know Russia is expensive) - for example 250 rubles for a small Perrier water in the restaurant (about 6 Euros). Overall the price and the 4 star tag may be the norm for Moscow but it does not compare to other hotels of the same rating I have stayed in.

Comfortable large air-conditioned bedroom. Ambience seems enhanced by the trees growing at the front of the hotel. Excellent buffet breakfast. Helpful staff, when you ask. Some have good English. Convenience store over the road very useful for bottled water and snacks. Walking distance to Red Square and Metro station. Also within 20min walk of mainline station.

Room Tip: There is some traffic noise at the front. But it is on a side road which is one-way only. Fourth f...

We stayed only two nights at the Marco Polo Presnja, but would return and recommend it to friends as a conveniently located, clean, and well run establishment. As mentioned by others the breakfast buffet is excellent. We ate at the hotel for dinner in the front outdoor cafe, and found choices on the menu that were tasty and not too expensive. Because it is a small hotel, we found that other English speaking travelers were friendly and similarly enjoying their stay.

This Hotel is located a wonderful Moscow neighborhood. The staff was very helpful, friendly and
spoke good English. Good location to restaurants, parks, Red Square, Metro. Neighborhood clean and very safe to walk and enjoy the families and shops. Also near the famous restaurant "The Stork" where the beautiful people hang out.

Room Tip: Rooms opposite the street are very quite.

This was a quirky little hotel .. the staff were pleasant though not much English spoken. The breakfast buffet was pretty good and above all the location was very convenient for central Moscow - 10 mins on foot to Red Square and 10 minutes walk to the nearest Metro.

I would not mind staying here on another occasion.

Stayed in Marco Polo Presnja again this january, and as usual it was a very well functioning hotel. Centrally located and spacious rooms and reliable taxi service to the airport.

What most people do not know is that next door and part of the hotel is restaurant Don Pedro, which has excellent food and a good wine list. Never full, but should be!
Not necessarily cheap, but good for business meetings and good for romantic meeting!
