If you like small friendly hotels, then this is not the one for you ! The staff at reception were very unhelpful and barely polite. I have never stayed in such an unfriendly hotel! The provided breakfast was minimal and there was very little choice and the service extremely slow. Best to avoid the breakfast and go to one of the many cafes situated along this street .
Rooms were satisfactory ,warm and clean although there was some black mould in my shower. The location is excellent, close to the Kremlin, The Bolshoi Theatre, and Red Square but I would not go to this hotel again myself.
