Ok but tiny roomsPosted Nov 20, 2013
The hotel is ok for 1 star, but anyway the rooms are tiny! I was alone in one room and despite that I almost couldn't move, my parents used one room and that was terrible. The staff was so nice, and also the breakfast.

Very basic room but cleanPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms here are no frills though the furnishings are newer and the hotel is clean and well maintained. Its not a long walk to get to all the sights and the surrounding neighborhood has lots of restaurants to offer. For the price in Moscow, where hotels are quite expensive, this provides a pretty good value.

Great location and wonderful staff, but....Posted Aug 11, 2013
Cons: No WiFi in every room
Location: Within walking distance (or short Metro rides) of all major sights
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.

Good location and cleanPosted Jul 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was about an 8 minute walk from the Kitay-Gorod metro station and about a 20 minute walk to Red Square, there were several places to eat nearby and a couple of supermarkets. Although we didn't have much contact with the reception at the hotel they were helpful when needed. The room was quiet and clean although very hot with no air conditioning and only a small window for ventilation although to be fair Moscow was experiencing an uncustomary heatwave when we visited in July 2013!

Good budget option close to Red SquarePosted Jul 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay at the Basilica Hotel. The reception staff was friendly and spoke English well. The metro and Red Square are a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The surrounding neighborhood is a tad dodgy, but there is a nice grocery very close to the hotel. Our primary complaint was the lack of air conditioning in our room -- it was VERY hot and so while our room was clean, it wasn't particularly comfortable. However, we felt this was still a good value in Moscow. We took a taxi from Domodedovo airport and our taxi driver had difficulty finding the hotel -- it is located on a tiny side street. We would recommend that you request driving instructions IN CYRILLIC from the hotel to give to your taxi driver. You could take the metro in from the airport, but we think it would be very hard to find the hotel on your own from the closest metro stop unless you are already familiar with the area.

ok hotel for the pricePosted Apr 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
flat screen tv had just been fitted, it didnt work but the mess from the drilling was still there for the 3 days of our stay. tiny room was never cleaned. this is next to the basillica, not in it, so you dont expect some old fashioned religiuos building. however, conveniently located between 2 subway stops, nice bar 30 seconds away and the staff speak good english. 20 minute stroll to red square.

Great Hotel for a City VisitPosted Dec 18, 2012
Hotel was very comfortable and warm considering the -16 temperature outside. You get what you pay for and the receptionist is very helpful. Would of been lost without her! Once you leave the hotel, you won't meet many English speaking people and finding your way round is difficult.

Great deal in MoscowPosted Jun 6, 2012
Very well located -- 400 m. to Metro-- nearby supermarket and way below average for Moscow prices. Not the Ritz -- it's a hostel/hotel after all -- but would definitely stay there again. We stayed in the hotel --- room had no place to store clothes, so lived out of suitcase for 4 days. Helpful and friendly staff.
