“Not a good choice”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

I stayed there two days withy wife. First of all there was not wifi coverage in the room. When i told this problem to the staff they offered me to work in the lobby instead of my room. The staff were very arrogant and unfriendly. The bed was the worst i have seen in my life, i think even to sleep on the floor. The bathroom was ok. Breakfast was not so good. The dishes and tables were not clean enough. Not recommended.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

I was in this hotel 6 days, quickly found the hotel, I came to the metro station "Vladykino", went on a small road through three houses and crossed the road. This property consists of 6 koprusov most 3 star hotel looks old Stalinist and the lobby of the old model, but inside the hotel at a good level. Then 5 floors and rooms are of different quality to them, I prefer number of good quality in output window on the inner quiet courtyard, this is number 464 on the 4th floor of 4300 rubles (one day). There was quiet in the room is a good bed for two, all in good, small color televizo with remote control, mini fridge, telephone, wardrobe. The door opened onto a card. Breakfasts on the first floor, this meal at a good level: iogurty, sandwiches, eggs, coffee, tea, salads, rolls, etc. There is room for online and print, but the wireless free internet is only on the first floor. For Russia - is a good level, but for the world - it's average. Location is very convenient, everything is good, but expensive! (but there are cheap rooms for about 2,000 rubles in the building number 6) You can choose a quiet room higher floor, will be useful. Good!

This hotel is barely adequate with poor service, dated rooms and furniture and a breakfast that has as its highlight the fresh fruit yogurt! Apart from a friendly bar attendant on the last night of our stay the staff were anonymous. It is located in quite a run down residential and industrial area about 25 minutes by Metro to the centre of Moscow. My room overlooked a busy noisy highway, train tracks and a used car centre. If staying here try to avoid the low numbered rooms on each floor (1 - 15) as these overlook the noisiest area. Colleagues who stayed on the other side of the hotel were not bothered by noise. The rooms do not have air conditioning and can get very warm in the July heat. The only redeeming features were the air conditioned, reasonably equipped conference room and a reasonable en-suite bathroom.

Room Tip: If staying here try to avoid the low numbered rooms on each floor (1 - 15) as these overlook the noi...

This hotel is near a railway station … not too far from Vladikyno Metro station… it’s an industrial part of Moscow. On the other side of the road (along the railway) there is a kind of huge Power Plant…
Not sexy AT ALL…
I was there for business visting a client near by…
This hotel is nightmare despite it was recently refurbished. The bathroom was clean and modern, that might have been the only descent thing in the room…
The room (a single) was so tiny… I have never seen a room so small… the bed is super tiny –maybe 70cm large- as I’m sort of tall (190cm – 6ft3) and rather big, it didn’t work out too good for me.
The TV set is a 36 cm old CRT TV from the 80’s…
The fridge was empty and hardly worked. The furniture was cheap and crappy… The wallpaper was one the ugliest I ever saw …
Basically reminded me of the cold war !!!!
The breakfast is cheap but it’s one of the most disgusting one I ever had in my life … it’s made of cheap products that have been bought at a hard discounter… nothing seems fresh.
There is hardly anyone among staff who speaks Russian, as the hotel aims middle class Russians who come from the province to visit friends and family in the area …
Don’t expect to find a taxi in this crappy area …
To avoid at all cost … you’ve been warned …

I stayed here for one night. Former soviet giant hotel with hunreds of rooms. The staff is average. The room was clean. Bed - comfortable. Furniture - modern. The restaurant looked nice. Breakfast was really good. Not so big asortment. But food quality was very good. Wi-Fi cards wasn't available. Close to the metro station "Vladikino". 30 minutes by metro to the center of Moscow. So, it was normal, average hotel. Nothing bad, and nothing very good.

The staff have some English. The room was basic but clean. The restaurant was good and did a nice buffet breakfast. Evening menu was good and the food above average. There is an ATM in the lobby but it didn't work with any of my uk cards. The nearest ATM that did work was over 3km away and I had to walk through a bad neighborhood to get there - like many places in russia the restaurant only accepts cash.

The only reason why I stayed at this hotel was because my Japanese friend said that her professor recommended it. Before the stay I had my reservations about the hotel, since it was a headache just to get a reservation on the phone without them hanging up on me. Yeah the staff doesn't really speak English that well. In fact you will be very lucky if they do have someone that speaks English.

When we got to the hotel it was no better. There was absolutely no service at all. No bellboys, no concierge, no thing except for two ladies standing behind the desk. Oh yeah, there was one scantily-clad lady sitting in a worndown sofa in the very bleak lobby. And no they still didn't speak English, so that probably complicated things.

After some confusion about the reservations we had made, my friend and I was finally able to get into our room after 30 minutes of waiting and no other guests. Since it was early in the morning, we also wanted some breakfast.

However there are no nearby street vendors, cafés or shops. So we had to settle for the hotel breakfast which was very expensive (we were charged around 1000 rubles) and consisting only of day-old bread along with uninviting ham and jam.

The rooms are very small and we found vomit under the bed. The bed itself was okay.

Be sure to bring your passport with you at any time. One night me and my gf got home at around 10 or 11 PM and a stern looking guy demanded to see our passports. We showed it to him in the lobby and proceeded up to our room. However we talked abit in the corridor and then suddenly that stern looking guy came and hushed us into our room. Supposedly we were monitored by the surveillance system...

The hotel lies around 10-15 minutes of walk to the nearest metro station. From the metro station it takes 20-30 minutes to get to the Kremlin (center of the city). The area in which the hotel is located is really bleak and is just next to the highway. Around the area there are no shopping opportunities and it is basically residential area.

The hotel doesn't seem to have been renovated since the Cold War and it certainly does bring back reminscence back from that age. The only other guests at the hotel seemed to be middle-aged russian/kazakstahni officials.

I would advise anyone to stay away from this hotel.
