Really enjoyed my stay here. Big rooms, decent menu...good choice of light and full on meals. But best part was the staff who were all really friendly and helpful. Not within walking distance of the sites but the metro is only 5 minutes walk. I'm going back next time I'm in Moscow.

"Good hotel but quite long walk from metro station"
Generally good for Moscow: means good quality and comfort at reasonable price. Room is small but still OK, however some important things were definitely missing - for example the closet for coats: I did not find it. There are no even hooks for coats on the wall. Restaurant is really good. Breakfast is excellent. Location: nothing interesting is around, and if you need to get at downtown - call taxi, for walking to nearest metro station "Taganskaya" or "Rimskaya" - too long distance and you'll get completely dirty in fall or winter time walking there and back. Nevertheless I would recommend this hotel as having reasonable quality/price ratio, and I'll stay in this hotel again when I'm again in Moscow for 1-2 nights.
The Bascilica Hotel is in a great location and the staff are extremely helpful. For the price you pay, it's well worth booking this hotel for your stay in Moscow.
However, there are a few little white lies they say on the website that you should be aware of...
The back yard is not a beautiful oasis, yes there are flowers, but it's also a dumping ground and workshop for the maintenance team.
It is the best part of 30 minutes walk to the Kremlin/Red Square, if the weather is hot.
All rooms do not have WiFi; the first 'superior' room we were given was in the courtyard block and had no wardrobe, or any other furniture for that matter, apart from the beds and the view from the window was a wall. The second room we moved to was in the main block and 100% better, with two windows and storage - it turns out that the only place you can get WiFi is in the courtyard block!
I hope you enjoy your stay, we did.
