Think spy novels not only here but out the window as you gauze at the Moscow Hotel. You can't beat the location of this hotel. The staff alway are friendly. The waiters during the big, free breakfast are straight out of an Agatha Christie novel. The rugs in the room are looking a little old but the wifi has improved... More

They let us check in to our room at 7am which was incredibly welcome given that we'd arrived on the night train from Bulgaria and were desperate to freshen up.

The hotel is in the centre of town and the reception staff was very nice and pleasant.
