We stayed here the last 3 nights of our 28 day Trans-Mongolian Train trip. The company I ordered the trip through had suggest a perfectly good hotel just off Red Square. But I wanted something different something special. I did not realize until we arrived how much I had hit the jackpot. This hotel is built over the famous YAR restaurant. It was built at the personal orders of Stalin in 1952 right on top of YAR. In what then was Soviet luxury.. All the who and who through the years stayed here from Margret Thatcher to Indira Ghandi. One morning the piano was played during breakfast the next we had a lovely lady playing the harp. The YAR itself has been restored to its former glory , the food great and if your stay includes a Friday do not miss the show they have there.. After 4 days on the train the bath tub was a joy for my spouse.
I really like this historical Hotel with its upper soviet-class interior and decoration. The staff is very friendly and professional. The Rooms are big and clean, bathrooms are however bit old and should be received. For breakfast a buffet with big choice of bread, salads , cold cutts and fruits are offered and accompanied with life piano or harp music. Great experience!!
Lovely hotel, very nice location just off central boulevard in Moscow, close to high quality shopping and a short walk from the Metro Station. The room was very clean and nice and the staff was very helpful and professional. A slice of USSR history in a rapidly modernizing city.
A great atmosphere from Soviet era when living at sovietsky hotel. Piano at hall, room very big and comfortable with Soviet furniture, bathroom very clean, breakfast plenty of choices, at breakfast room they 're playing piano and arp! Totally value for money. Close to city centre by metro or bus. The only negative thing no any neighborhood with shops, restaurants or super market around hotel. Hotel is situated next to ring road, a little far from city centre.
If you want to have stay historical place with high standards this is a place for you. The design is pretty nice and huge corridors pretty nice design everywhere. Live music for breakfast. The room was not quiet -there were a contraction all around Moscow for the World Cup- so I don't blame them. TV was old style tv. Flat would be nicer.
This elegant old hotel is great if you are not looking for latest fashion but the more elegant old hotel. Rooms are big and comfortable without being flashy. The bathroom is somewhat dated but clean and perfectly adequate. Music to eat your breakfast by is a lovely way to start the day - we had piano 1 day and harp the next. A 20 minute walk to Metro but through a park and it seems Moscow is safe to walk out at night. Hotel excellent value for money
Excellent breakfast Excellent service (staff speaks english very well, and are very kind and helpful) Clean room Near a metro station A few metro stations away from the historical center Located in a great quarter
A pearl of an hotel situated near central area of Moscow! Only 4 stops with Moscow metro from "Dinamo" station to Red Square! Big spacious rooms with comfortable beds! Old Soviet style hotel from the 1950s with lots of originality left in rooms and in public areas like reception area, staircase, breakfast area and hallways! Live music in breakfast area and great spacious feeling with pompous old Soviet style everywhere you go! The breakfast is rich and with different warm dishes every day! The room service was excellent and reception provided us with a little fridge in our room after 10 minutes upon our request!
sweeping stairways, elaborate décor from soviet era. Big rooms, good food with background pianist. A little from the centre but plenty of transport available. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, breakfast was ample and good quality. Staff were helpful and attentive
We loved this hotel grand soviet style with retro fittings. Incredible delicous breakfast and its worth having a meal at the Ya restraurant when they have the floorshow. Really good value hotel we look forward to staying with you again.
