Fodor's Review

What opened in 1876 as a club for noblemen became a hotel for visiting Soviet bureaucrats to stay while on official business and now is a homey if somewhat outdated place to stay in the city center with high ceilings, skirted bedspreads, and tasseled lampshades. A restaurant serves a conservative range of European dishes, there's a cozy bar, and just up the block there's Gogol, a trendy and inexpensive café that serves traditional Russian food. The Kremlin is also just a short walk away.

Faded, but nice.

After much searching, I chose the Budapest mainly based on price and location. The location was indeed very good. My room was more than a bit faded, old draperies, stark bathroom (but quite large) with poor lighting, and a worn down bed (sagging in the middle). Staff seemed disinterested whenever I asked directions. Wifi just plain wouldn't work in the hotel so I had to go to nearby internet cafe to use my laptop. I have no basis of comparison,

but compared to the prices I saw for other hotels in the area, I feel I probably had a pretty good value for Moscow.

overall a good choice

Although it is by no means swanky, in fact it tends toward shabby, this is still a good choice for a value hotel. The carpets may be stained and the furniture from IKEA, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is great and the staff is pleasant and very helpful at about half the price of other nearby hotels.
