The Pushkin Hotel is wonderfully placed, with a very slow 20 minute walk to Red Square, 15 mins to the Bolshoi and very close to Yeliseevskiy Gastronom and the Main shopping drag as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Contemporary History, Hermitage Gardens and Tchaikovsky Concert Hall. There are 2 Metro stations close by and the streets are safe. Location is therefore excellent and the hotel is exceptional value for money.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, room spacious, the beds are super comfortable and the amenities are good, although if you want to watch tv in English you will have to settle for news and discussion programmes. We ate at the hotel throughout our stay and the food was cheap and excellent in quality. The service was impeccable too. I don't understand why this hotel isn't listed on the Trip Adviser Moscow App....it is really very good indeed.
My primary thanks go to the amazing receptionist who not only seemed to work tirelessly 24/7, but found time independently to organise a card and gift for my partner's 50th birthday. We were overwhelmed by this gesture and thank you unreservedly. This member of staff went above and beyond the call of duty and really enhanced our experience; he also gave us excellent advice, chatted warmly, translated and booked a cheap taxi to the airport for us.
When I return to Moscow I will book the hotel Pushkin without a moment's thought and I would recommend others to do so too - brilliant experience.
We chose this hotel for its location to sightseeing and price. It was situated only 5 minutes from the metro and high speed train to our airport.
The hotel and its staff were excellent and breakfast which was not included was only £12 per head and excellent value. We used the metro exclusively and found it easy once you get used to the system and at approx £1.00 per journey good value and easy to sightsee Moscow
Difficult to find entrance but this is a utilitarian business hotel next to Lukoil headquarters and subway, walking distance to Kremlin, Red Square, GUM. Staff was lacking in English but pleasant and I was able to get by. Breakfast was an excellent buffet and they had an excellent business lunch at a good price.
The room was small and needed updating but was comfortable. Seemed like a good value.

Whenever you are in Moscow- always be sure that the Ulanskaya hotel will provide you the best and the most dedicated service …More
Although there was a large building site directly in front of the hotel working through the night, I had a room at the back and was not at all disturbed. Friendly and helpful staff, large room with a desk to work at, good shower, very clean. The TV only picked up a couple of channels, but my stay was not to watch TV, I arrived after the hotel's cafe closed, but a few metres away is an "English Pub" with good food. About 10-15 minutes walk from Kitai Gorod or Kurskaya (or Chkalovskaya) metro stations. Very good wi-fi.
Matreshka is for those who is on a very restricted budget. It's one step up from a hostel You will have Red Square and Bolshoy Theatre next to you. Look at the pictures of the rooms and make sure you know what you will get. I booked this hotel for my Russian relatives, who are not spoiled by the luxury of life and they were very happy with the hotel.
