Maxima Zarya Hotel

Recent guest reviews

We visited this hotel on December 9/10 2017. We visited many times before without major problems but our last visit was the worst visit to a hotel we have ever had for the following reasons: 1. The hotel receptionist was very rude and would not help us and lied to us. He said he was the only member of staff in the building (which was not true as we saw another a few minutes later). We demanded to see the manager because he would not let us check in because I couldn't find my registration document (I had no problem with this before). He also would not let my wife (who is Russian) check in. He insulted my wife and upset her. After about 15 minutes he called the manager and the manager agreed we could stay. We had travelled 5 hours to get to the hotel and obviously had no where else to stay. 2. When we entered our hotel room it was very cold and there was no soap or any other toiletries. The message from the hotel is 'if you want soap you have to pay for it'. This is a cheap attitude from the hotel, which puts it as the same level as a hostel. 3. The fridge was completely empty and any plug sockets were purposefully hidden. I will be writing to the hotel for a refund and compensation for the stress caused. The complaint will also be sent to Avoid this hotel, it's not worth travelling to and there are better hotels near the centre of Moscow with the same price.

Good location (10 minute walk from metro station), clean and comfortable rooms. Try to avoid a room opposite the housekeeping area, it was quite noisy but not a problem for me. Good heating in the room!

This hotel was the start of our Transsiberia-express adventure. The hotel is a clean hotel with friendly staff, hot showers and a good bed. All the basics you need are offered so you will have a good sleep here. We didn't like the breakfast but most of the people around us apparently did so I will not complain about that. The hotel is however too far from the buzzling city and has nothing to offer to cover this loss. Overall a good place to stay but not for too long.

Comfortable clean rooms, slightly on the smaller side. Electric kettle and hot water at all times. No room service at night, so not for the luxury minded. Nearby money exchangers not working so change money elsewhere. Nearby Exhibition really beautiful and a hidden gem of Moscow

Maxima Zarya Hotel is a very nice hotel. No real complaints. The only negative comment was it did not have AC. But, the August nights were cool enough with the window open. --The bathroom has a hot drying rack which was nice to dry some cloths but we learned very quickly to keep that door shut because it did make the bed room hot. Wish the maid would have left it closed during the day. --They had a very nice hot breakfast buffett, eggs, sausage, cold cuts, fruits, and coffee all a person needs to start a day of touring. that was a BIG plus cause then we were able to skip lunch. You have a choice of including it in the price of the room which we did. Don't know how you would order off a menu or what was on a menu. --It was conveniently located for us. A subway was only a short walk which made it easy to get to all the major sites. Now that walk is not through a rose garden, but not bad, just down one short back street before you cross under the road and in to the housing area. --There was a small grocery store just around the corner. That was very handy. --Yes I would stay there again. It is a good value hotel. As a result, tour groups stay there so Breakfast room was crowded. Need to be there at 7AM to be first in line. Clean rooms, nice facility, friendly staff, We did not have any problems. I recommend it.

Not a outstanding one but very confortable and friendly... The rooms are big enough for a long stay, and the restaurant staff is very good Nadejda is very sweet and always smiling... At the reception you have Vera, Vika, kristina and the Princess Malika.. that will welcome you with a wonderful smile. .

The room was great and very clean. The city centre was about 20 minutes away by metro and very easy to reach. The staff however was incompetent. The check in said we had breakfast included and every time we went to the breakfast hall the asked for our room number, checked it and let us go through to the breakfast room.This happened every day until our last day when they suddenly decided that we didn't have breakfast included and that we had to pay asap. When i ask for an explanation they were very rude and absolutely not helpful. It turned out there was a mistake in the voucher that the reception knew of but for some reason didn't say until the last day. It feels like the restaurant and the reception were acting together on trying to steal from their guests.

Very good service, has a very good restaurant, and descent Wi-Fi. The people in the front desk are very helpful. And housekeeping people come everyday. Although could use outlets by the bedding area and have air conditioning.

The hotel looks good. My room was small, but can not complain. Bathroom was also tight but clean. Restaurant is good, nice wines. Easy to access Moscow using the Metro which is 5 minutes away. Not so expensive and reasonable.

The hotel is situated about 10 minutes from a metro stop that will take you directly to the centre (Kremlin) and the area is nice and quiet. If you have the time it is definately worth going to the All Russia Exhibition Centre which is a 20 minute walk through a park. The hotel itself is terribly noisy, but that could have been because we were there during the New Years/Christmas holidays and there were LOTS of children running in the hallways. The inhouse restaurant is pretty okay; the food is relatively good (and simple) and the staff is not unfriendly.
