Worst hotel in my life

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Night club music was so noisy that I couldn't sleep until 7 AM! Old decoration, no elevator, no breakfast restaurant, no telephone at room.

Great location and artsy vibe but HORRIBLE rooms

Posted Sep 25, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff at desk. Awesome location. Great bar on 2nd floor.
Cons: The rooms were horrible. HOT HOT HOT, even though it was cold outside.
Location: Near Bolshoi and Kremlin.
My room was a windowless cell that was extremely HOT. I had to have too fans on my at all times. The bathroom smelled. Breakfast was retro-gulag gruel. I seriously felt like one of Stalin's political prisoners in the 1930s.

Hyvä budjettivaihtoehto mutta epämukavat huoneet

Posted Jun 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hauska hotelli suoraan baarin yläkerrassa. Hauska atmosfääri. Huoneissa ei ole ikkunoita eikä ilmastointia. Kesähelteellä huoneessa oli yöllä tappavan kuuma ja ainoa keino viilennykseen oli pieni pöytätuuletin. Kannattaa välttää hotellia jos ulkolämpötila ylittää 25 astetta.

Bohemian alternative but a bit extreme

Posted Jun 29, 2014
I choose Artel because I wanted something a bit different and I certainly got that. It has amazing character but it's a bit of a challenge. It has the look and feel of a hotel created by a group of students trying to make a designer/art hotel on a budget. The result has flair and improvisation mixed with a dash of Berlin in the 1930s, on account of the crumbling 19 th century apartment block it is located in. You have to make your way up to the third floor in a clunky Soviet lift. The bedrooms are quite wild - one had amazing have painted walls with UV paint which glowed in the dark. Unfortunately there was no window ( I didn't realise, when booking, that 'no view' meant 'no view at all'). The breakfast is a small basic continental served in your room. On the upside the young staff are really helpful, it's right beside Red Square and there is a wonderful louche bar like something from the Titanic. If you want a totally different experience from the usual boring stuff and don't mind weird stuff and discomfort then go for it.

Personnel sympa, lit affreux, boite de nuits au 1

Posted Jun 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Personnel sympa, lit affreux, boite de nuits au 1 étage qui ferme à 9h du matin ... Soit vous chercher le Moscou by night avec une chambre à proximité d'un "after" soit passez votre chemin. Dommage parce que l'emplacement est très bon et le petit café théatre au deuxième étage est très sympa.

Spennende og eventyrlig

Posted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Street art, musikk, kunst og kreative mennesker. Det møter deg å Artel hotell. Beliggenheten er gull. Et setinkast fra Den Røde plass. Ja, den kan hende musikken er høy - ta med ørepropper bare. Hotellet byr på så mye annet. 1. etasje en deilig Fretex-bar med DJ. 2. etasje livemusikk (høy kvalitet). Du bor i 3. etasje. Irriterende at ikke internet på rommene, men et lite offer sammenlignet med resten. Er du eventyrlysten, go for it!

Otima localização, descartar a primeira impressao

Posted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
O hotel é muito bem localizado, muito próximo do Kremlin, Praça vermelha, Catedral de São Basilico e teatro Bolshoi. É possível ir a pé a esses locais. Para encontrar o hotel pela primeira vez não foi muito fácil, não há boa sinalização. O hotel fica numa viela, em frente do Hotel Savoy ( outro lado da rua). O quarto era muito apertado, muito mesmo. O banheiro também é minúsculo e a conservação estava ruim, azulejos soltos no piso dificultavam o banho. A limpeza era boa. O serviço de café da manha é feito no quarto. O hospede avisa no dia anterior o horario que deseja comer e a camareira leva no quarto, por ser muito pequeno, foi preciso comer em cima da cama. O inconveniente é que o hotel fica no terceiro andar e há um pub no andar de baixo. Não há barulho, mas os frequentadores fumam na escada e a fumaça impregna os corredores do hotel. A aparência de "bastidores de teatro" pode impressionar, mas o hotel não é mal frequentado. Mesmo assim, pelo custo beneficio eu ficaria novamente neste hotel. Dica: caso não encontre o local, leve o endereço na recepção de outro hotel, os concierges falam inglês e poderão te auxiliar, embora o hotel não seja tao conhecido, pode ser encontrado por pesquisa na internet.

For openmined mennesker i sentrale omgivelser

Posted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotellet var som en kunstfabrikk. Kreativt innredet, helt annerledes enn hva man er vant til. I 1. etasje finner du en sjarmerende bar i Fretex-stil. Klientellet er musikere, artister og kreative mennesker. I 2. etasje nattklubb med livemusikk. Jada, ta med deg øreplugger. Hotellet ligger supersentralt i Moskva - ut dørene og du er så og si på Den Røde plass. Pass på: Vi bestilte de billigste rommene - de var av enkel standart, men helt ok. Det går an å oppgradere til flere "standarder". Så er du kresen, bestill litt dyrere rom.
