Fodor's Review

This 1955, Soviet-era tower is a Moscow landmark, offering old-fashioned accommodations that, though upgraded, still evoke Stalinist Russia, as may the service and amenities. Guest rooms vary in size, so it makes sense to ask to see a few before checking in. Request one on a higher floor if any are available, so you can enjoy the views of central Moscow.

Feeling like in the Cold War

I swear I felt like if I was in the middle of a secret mission during the cold war. And it was so because of the decoration, the architecture of the building and the location. That was the best part of it. It was very well located and in fact that allowed me to spend a few hours each day at the Moscow Conservatory's Tchaikovsky Hall, which was really close. The hotel was renovated but still you can feel like a Russian James Bond. Bad things about

it were: you must pay for internet because it is not included. That is a shame. And the beds were not very comfortable in any case, specially considering I requested to be changed to another room.
