Stayed here for 5 nights.
Location (close to Trans Siberian train station) and only a easy 20 min walk to Red Square, also a few good shops 5 mins walk away (and a Metro station).
Service, the staff we dealt with were great, one had good english and the other was just as good to communicate with thanks to google translate and the hotel's WiFi. Both friendly.
WiFi was fast and had no bandwidth problems.
Free washing machine, it is small though.
Clean, apart from the black mould on the roof of the shower.
No ventilation, the place is in the basement of a large building with no windows to the outside.
Two of the shower doors did not close due to wonky door frames.
One of the toilets has very little leg room, I am 6ft and my knees touched the door when sitting on the throne.
No dryer so wet clothes had to be dried in the room or strung up in the hall way.
Noise, we had the pleasure during our stay to experience a child practising their flute at 8am. We also heard everything going on in the two adjoining rooms as the walls are paper thin, if you rock the beds a bit it's like ringing a bell to the townspeople too.
No servicing of room for our stay.
I'd recommend this place to someone doing a quick stay of a couple of nights but for anything longer go somewhere that you can get a better sleep and some fresh air.
