Sovietsky HotelPosted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: décor, quality of food and service
Location: on the circle metro, station 10 minute walk meant everything in the city is easily available
This hotel is decorated to lavish standards, very old Russian style. Magnificent marble staircases and décor. Large comfortable rooms, Breakfast was very good and relaxing harp music played whilst you ate. Generally a very good experience and I would recommend this hotel highly.

Very very nice hotel with soviet style.Posted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: Breakfast. Soviet rich style inside. Not inside apartments though. Only in corridors.
Cons: The hotel needs to be renovated overall.
I've ordered by my mistake the room in wrong number, and figured it out only at reception. However, they let me stay for the amount I've booked even for different dates. Very nice hotel. Breakfast if awesome!

Not just a hotel stay BUT an experience to cherishPosted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: The Hotel was very much an intrinsic part of the trip – if you want character - this is for you, if you want modern - book into a contemporary hotel
Cons: Free Wi Fi in all the rooms
Location: Possibly not the best location for some, but for those with a little sense of adventure it’s perfect & safe. 15 mins walk from Dinamo Metro Station
The Historic Hotel Sovietsky was fabulous, exactly what we wanted – an imposing Stalinist structure steeped in history of the USSR. It would have been so easy to have booked into a modern hotel with all the services one has come to expect – but do have done so would have meant we missed a priceless opportunity to step back in time. The ambience of the Hotel is quite breathtaking, the white marble sweeping staircases, the green marble pillars, the wooden panelling along the long corridors and the red carpeting throughout, the large portraits of past leaders, the chandeliers and original lighting. The twin room was clean and comfortable, a very high ceiling, lots of character from the intricate window and door locks, to the very functional bathroom - Who needs air conditioning when one can open the large wooden windows. The lounge and restaurant where excellent, valuble free wi-fi (not in the rooms though) and friendly staff. The ‘all you can eat’ buffet breakfast was to die for – omelettes cooked to order, fruit & salad, porridge, meat and cheese, sausage – coffee, tea, orange and apple juice….. and as much black Russian bread and butter as one could eat. Not just a hotel stay BUT an experience to remember

Great stay in MoscowPosted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel overall is great, clean quite room, very friendly and welcoming staff, nice breakfast selections, close to the center of Moscow, few minutes by bus or taxi to all touristic sites and museums. Many thanks to Nina and Kirril at the front desk for their outstanding customer service.

Good option for tourists and kitsch loversPosted Jul 24, 2013
Pros: I really appreciated the helpful front desk staff who stored my baggage and went to the extra effort to send me off on the train with breakfast.
Cons: Breakfast is not as good as other reviewers stated. Sparse on fresh fruit. WiFi only available in the lobby.
Location: Hotel is just off main street, but 8 looong blocks north of nearest metro. Nearby services sparse (restaurants, currency change). Be prepared to walk.
I stayed here twice between visits to another city, first for one night and then an additional two. For Moscow, it is a reasonably priced option for a roomy, if not luxurious space. The 15 minute walk from Belorusski train/metro station isn't bad unless you're toting luggage. If you never experienced the aesthetics of hotels during Soviet times, the nostalgia trip is great - though bear in mind, this hotel would have accommodated highly placed party officials and celebrities, not your average proletariat traveller. A shame there is no gym. The repertoire of the nightly piano player is limited; I think I heard "Feelings" 3x in an hour, unless that is an intentional inside joke. The hotel offers taxi service (efficient) prices are neither competitive nor a total rip off. I was, however, momentarily dragged into an awkward tug of war between the hotel and dispatcher, well handled in the end by the front desk. Glad I stayed here.
