Hotel was very Russian but that was nice vs chain western hotel. Good location near Metro stops and also near Kremlin and Red Square. Staff english was limited but did the trick. The "garden" area in the hotel is great and was nice for a beer and light dinner. Staff very helpful when we needed to leave bags and have a shower before a late departure.
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.

Having had some experience in old soviet style apartments I wasn't expecting much, but the hotel was a great surprise. Nice large rooms, kitchen and large living room. Furnishing was pretty good, and the kitchen had a washing machine! The Russian breakfast was a treat. Two 24 hour small super markets on the street a block or two away (no alcohol for sale past 11pm).
Note, even though the metro station is about a 10 minute walk away, rather catch a taxi from the Airport Express train station or from the airport itself. Remember to haggle the price beforehand. If the taxi driver puts you on the clock you'll pay dearly. Also, when checking out, do not take the metro, you will be marked as an easy target with your luggage. Rather spend the additional cash on a taxi to the airport (again remember to haggle the price.) We negotiated 1700 rubles, but we had a Russian speaker and we used an unmarked taxi.

The location of the hotel was perfect, right near the three major Moscow railway stations. The metro station is very close, less than 5 min walk. We actually walked all the way to Red Square and it only took us 30 minutes. That's not bad at all for Moscow.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They granted us late checkout (3 pm) at no extra fee. Gym is not very big, but has everything you need. And swimming pool is great, not too big, but good size. Enough to get good workout.
