“Good location, everything here's expensive though”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Stayed here for a week on business trip. Front desk was helpful with getting our group of 9 taxis every day to go where we needed to be for our meetings. I never once had breakfast in the hotel because it was so expensive. Breakfast buffet was $50 USD! WAY too expensive, I thought i was doing my conversions wrong, but it really was $50. There are 3 coffee shops that are all less than 5 min. walking distance away, so I went to those each morning. They charge extra for internet each day, but my room was right above the lobby, so I could get the free wifi from the lobby. The room itself was fine, kind of dark. Otherwise, relatively spacious, the bathrooms were fancy, with heated floors. Overall would recommend coming here. The "gym" area consists of three exercise machines: 1 bike, 1 elliptical, and 1 treadmill. That's it. The sauna area looks super fancy, but I never used it.

Red square is just over 10 mins walking distance from the hotel, so we went a few times. There is an ATM in the lobby which converts money for you. You can put in foreign bills, and it'll exchange to RUB for you, and the rate was better than the exchange rate I got with my bank in the US. So I definitely would recommend foreign travelers use that machine.

Very central location. Only 10 minutes to walk to Red square. Staff were welcoming and helpful
Breakfast was expensive but great. Smoked salmon with cheese and vegetables was just wonderful.
A tip - try to book as early as possible, because they have a special rate system that gives you huge discounts if you book a month ahead.
There is no swimming pool at the hotel though. However it is so cold in Moscow that you don't need a pool. Go to the sauna instead, it is free at the hotel.

Charming hotel, very small and quiet - it was a perfect place for me. First time in Moscow, I was a bit frightened, but my Moscow experience was great after all.
The food in the hotel restaurant was terrific. Best of all, the seafood salad and the apple pie.
My room was small, but very well kept - new and clean. The chamber maid was a little funny, but she smiled all the time and was always there when I needed her - like a personal maid. I really appreciate such treatment.

The hotel is the best thing about Moscow.
The city is nice, but too busy and very cold (I was there this February). However there is much too see, plan at least three days to explore all of the Kremlin. People in the street do not speak English and do not seem very friendly, but everyone at the Golden Apple was willing to help, spoke perfect English and always smiled. The room was not very large, but is was vas extremely comfortable and well designed.

Stayed 1 Night

HOTEL: One of the few nice boutique hotel in town, original decoration.

CHECKING: Very efficient staff as it should be normally (but not the case at most places in town).

ROOM: Clean & practical. Good bed but tiny bathroom - the metal lavatory a bit cheaply designed.

BREAKFAST: Great quality, fresh ingredients. Worth taking the time for it.

LOCATION: Cannot be much convenient in the Center; only 5 Minutes walking from metro "Pushkinskaya".

OVERALL: A good back up hotel when rates go sky-high at Hyatt, Ritz or Radisson when the corporate rates are not available anymore.

We actually intended to stay somewhere esle, but ended up at the Golden Apple. I must admit that even having cost us a bit more over 1000 Eur (4 nights two people) we are absolutely satisfied - that's a very good price for such a hotel.
Service was terrific. The location was very convenient. Breakfast is the best thing that ever happened to me!
The room was a bit smaller than we expected but it was so trendy and pretty that we didn't mind not having extra space.
