Golden Apple Boutique Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

An excellent value with a knowledgeable & helpful staff. Great central location with a fantastic in-house restaurant as well as many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Three Metro stations nearby, and Red Square an easy stroll away past many shops, cafes, boutiques.

The location of the hotel was great, metro station in close proximity, very nice neighbourhood - great value for the location in general. We were however quite disappointed with the hotel decor and staff: it does not match a 5-star hotel. The hallways and rooms were very dark (very little natural light) and I agree with a review below that the bathroom resembled more a prison cell than that of a boutique hotel (orange floor, metal sink, black shower curtains). Strangely there was also only 1 plug/socket in the room and it was at the bottom of the wall at the entrance of the room. The issue was resolved with an extension, but still very inconvenient. The staff's English level was not great and they were not informed at all on basic information (touristic sites and other).

I merely choose the Golden Apple Boutique Hotel for the combination of location & value for money. We were only staying for a long weekend and for that the purpose the hotel catered for our needs. Location is great, just of Tverskaya Street and conveniently located, close to several metro stations. The Kremlin is in a good 20 minutes walking distance. Staff at the hotel was generally nice and somewhat attentive. Our room located on the fourth floor was well appointed, the design-features in the bathroom however remind more of prison cell than actually of a bathroom in a boutique hotel. Biggest let-down in the room surely was that the window led right to next building, effectively not letting any daylight in at all. Breakfast was okay, not a big choice of items, especially hot dishes were slightly disappointing. Overall, if you stay in the city for just a few nights, I would recommend the place. For longer stays however I would stay at a different hotel.

Very conveniently located from Tverskaya street and underground, about 25 min walk to the Red Square. Friendly and helpful staff, good facilities, breakfast isn't very exciting but overall we were quite pleased with our stay. Definitely recommend.

We stayed here on recommendation and were not disappointed. Decor is fairly off the wall but the room was well furnished and well equipped. Breakfast was plentiful if a little unexciting and the staff were excellent and helpful. The location is very good with the metro about five minutes away and Red Square a twenty minute walk.

The hotel exceeded my expectations, spacious standard room, friendly personnel who met all our requests, 14:00 check out (instead of 12:00), delicious breakfasts and dinners. Very good location - in walking distance from all main attractions.

I never knew this hotel existed until yesterday. This is the story: I wrote to Professor Rayfield about a hotel in Nice where Chekhhov stayed in 1897-98 and unexpectedly got a tip on Sheshkov guesthouse on Malaya Dmitrovka in Moscow. Which room he had in either of them, it is impossible to say now, as both buildings were totally reconstructed inside. You can google other catch-names – Leo Tolstoy, Ivan Bounine, Konstantin Stanislavsky (he with the ‘method’), Issac Levitan. Three floors were added in 1910, you can see it in the picture. The place, as many other fine buildings in Moscow, was deliberately brought to ruins in early 2000s, to change hands and become a new Russian goldmine a couple of years later. Oh yes, forgot to say. Donald Rayfield is a well-known authority on Chekhhov. And Anton Chekhhov is a well-known Russian writer.

5 star for this hotel is too much! It is average 3 star hotel... Terrible bath room, very small rooms! Breakfast is more than terrible! i don't have any words to describe them. I booked Business Delux room, but it looks like homeless box!

There is nothing to add-on, this is a real Hotel Boutique in an excellent location at the city! This includes the breakfast and Bar! The nights are very calm, it's fine to sleep, on that way the dreams are lighter!

The hotel has very good location. Thank you for oppotunity to use lugguage room before check in and after check out. Very polite personal, normal breackfast. The price is okay for this location and service.
