The best part of this hotel is its location. It's not luxurious, but it fulfills its purpose in a 5 * way. You have to walk down the hall for the bath, but for the price and location, it is worth every bit of it. Based on my requirements and experience as a world traveler, it fills my bill, but I didn't want people who don't like the lack of extravagant amenitiesI to consider it, thus a four star rating.
As I said, it is close to the center of just about everything. You are located about 15 minutes walk from Red Square, six minutes from the Bolshoi, about eight minutes (downhill) to the Teatralnaya Metro station, around the corner from the Ritz, etc., etc. It is located on Kemergersky Pereulok (Lane) which is a walking street full of restaurants populated by tourists, so there is no problem getting service. Just beside the door is a chain restaurant whose name is directly transliterated as "chokoladnista" (my poor work) and which provides good light fare for not too much. I mentioned before that there is a fast-food blinnie establishment (Teremok - Tepemok in Russian) on the corner of Tverskaya Street. Great for a fast breakfast as there was no breakfast available at the hotel - as far as I could gather. There was a full kitchen available and tea kettles with tea bags and instant coffee there at all times. There are five rooms and two baths that must be shared (down the hall). Svetlana and Irina are the two attendants and don't speak English very well, but I had no real problem with them (arm waving, smiling and nodding - liberal use of the word "Da"). I found them very nice. To get in, look for the door to the West of the Chocolate (above) Restaurant. There is a sign there for a company called Pharos - no sign for the hotel that I remember. Ring the porter on the call box by pressing the two bottom-left most buttons twice. A porter will let you in. Take the lift to the third floor where there is a door with "Hotel" written in Russian on a sheet of paper. Just walk in.
