If your work brings you to the out skirts of Moscow, or at least outside of the center, then this is a good hotel.
Close to a metro station, and several main arteries.
Breakfast is not great, but good enough.
Staff at reception, restaurant and room level are very good, and all speak English.
There is an Uzbek restaurant close by.
Rooms need to be refreshed.
Smokers smoke in the room, and it can never be removed....so there is that stale cigarette bitterness stench in many rooms. (Shag carpets don't help.)
Bathrooms are upgraded and clean
With fairly low expectations of Moscow and Russia in general, we were blown away by the people, buildings, food, beer and tourist attractions. The hotel was true Soviet splendour with marble throughout and more gold leaf than you can imagine. Despite it's opulence, the staff were charming and so we hope to return in the depths of winter to experience it all again.

Historic section of Moscow, growing livelier towards Belorusskaya (Belorussky Square), located where Leningradski Prospekt joins with the bustling Tverskaya Street. The area is a main transport hub in Moscow, and Belorussky Railway Terminal is one of the grandest stations in Moscow. Trains to Europe depart from here.
