Maxima Irbis Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

This hotel is not the most luxurious of Moscow.. Far from it, but still very good foe what it stands. Need to be done here is the Thai massage service done by real Thai people... The excellent vika will guide you to the Zen zone where you will be taken in charge by another lovely hiostess... A real thrill Must do
I use this hotel quite frequently - I like that it is clean, friendly and close to the Metro. Have stayed here 40+ nights over the last 5 years.. can't wish for anything more! The restaurant is ok if not the best...
I stayed four nights at the Maxima Irbis in August 2015 and thought was a great value for $40 per night in USD. The hotel itself was nice, our room was cozy but nice. Bathroom was really nice as it was recently renovated. Front desk staff speaks good English and are nice and accommodating. Hotel is in residential area in north Moscow, so unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of restaurant and commercial amenities around aside from local party store/dumpling place/shopping mall, but the hotel is very close to a metro station. If you want a cultural trip, visit the shopping mall. Restaurant is good and unlike US hotel restaurants that will close early if no business, Maxima Irbis hotel will make dinner for you even if you walk in 30 min before it closes. That's key when you don't have many amenities around the hotel. Plus, the dinners were surprisingly good. The salmon steak was awesome. Hotel itself isn't loud, in fact it is very quiet. But we had a lot of outdoor noise. Note we slept with the window open because the late summer Moscow weather was great. Hotel is right next to major commuter rail line, a gravel pit and about 100 yards from a major throughfare, so they can be noisy in the early morning. Other than that, the neighborhood is quiet with both high and mid rise residential buildings. PROS of the hotel: Great value for affordable price Attentive, polite staff who speak good English Clean room Close to Metro As there were few amenities near the hotel, the restaurant will make dinner for you from full menu, even 30 min before closing. Breakfast was good for $5 USD. CONS: Front door didn't require key access after midnight Door to room didn't have chain for secondary lock Few amenities due to residential location Hotel located outside city center Slightly noisy from a distance (but nothing to keep you up at night)
We stayed in this lovely quiet hotel. when we visited Moscow . It is 20mn by metro to central Moscow. It is in residential areas but very quiet. Room is the big and clean . The restaurant staff were very polite and professional. Breakfast was fantastic. Some of the bar staff need to improve thier English.
The hotel is ok, fairly clean but dated. The location of the hotel is out of the way. But quite close to 2 metro stations. Round the corner is a shopping centre with a supermarket. Overall the hotel is good for the price you pay if you don't mind traveling to get to the city centre.
This hotel was horrible. Didn't like anything about it. Very far from center of town. In a side alley. Staff was very un-friendly. Rooms were OK. But, would not recommend this hotel at all. On our last night the A/C didn't work, and when we called receptio they said they would call a service guy, we waited for one hour, and when we called back (no they didn't bother contacting us), they said they can switch our room. My husband asked if we could leave our luggage in this room since we were checking out the next morning (which was literally in 5 hours), and they said no. Horrible!!
I came to Moscow for a few days, this hotel was a good option for the price and location. It is very close to a metro station. The room is big (Studio Room). Good breakfast. Reception personnel was very helpful. I recommend this hotel if you want a good place to sleep and you are in a budget. It is my second time here and I would come back again every time I need to spend a few days in Moscow.
Finding a clean, secure room with bath and decent breakfast for well under $100 night in Moscow is not easy but this property is an option. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the nearest Metro station, Vladykino (pronounced Vluh-DEEK-inuh) going through the backyards of apartment blocks and over an 8 lane highway after a half hour ride from the Center. Rooms are a reasonable size, adequately furnished and immaculately clean. The breakfast buffet has a good selection, but they play Russian MTVat top volume during the meal. I was not too impressed by the desk staff who, on different occasions provided me with the same (wrong) access code for making an international call. When it was finally resolved I got no apology and was charged roughly triple what I had been paying at other hotels in Russia for a similar call.
Very good business hotel. Despite its location everything is close to be perfect. Well trained staff, comfortable rooms, pretty affordable (especially comparing with other accommodation choices in Moscow) prices.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel in Moscow, and were pleased with our choice. The location is good if more central hotels in or near the Red Square are out of budget. It took us about 45 minutes to get into the city centre, including the walk to the metro. But the cheapness of travelling by metro in Moscow made this more the worth it. The room was clean and comfortable, and service was good. We thought the staff spoke very good English (certainly far better than our Russian! ;) ) - and they were able to answer our questions. Breakfast was good and varied each day, and there was enough there for us two vegetarians! Our room was non-smoking, but due to having smoking rooms on the same corridor, it did often still smell of cigarette smoke, albeit faintly. Overall a good choice of hotel for service and location.
