We were booked into this hotel as part of a tour with Cox & KIngs. We had just come from the Marriott in Moscow, so this may have influenced our opinion. I am surprised that 2 recent reviews describe the rooms as 'spacious' - we certainly didn't think so, more compact. Little spare space around the beds, some rooms with wooden floors, although we had cord carpet in ours. A shower was standard, although upgrade to rooms with a bath for a fee.
The main inconvenience was because the way the hotel has been plumbed, you can hear gurgling noises all night from sinks/toilets on floors above you! (we ere on the 4th floor). This interrupted the sleep of most people in our group of 21.
On the plus side, the breakfast was marvellous, and the pool fantastic. After a long day in the museums, it was bliss to come back to the pool, and put your feet under one of the high pressure jets.
I would agree with the comments that the hotel is too far from main attractions , the 'wrong' side of the river. The staff too were a mixed bag, but that seems to be the case in Russia generally.More
