Moscow Hotel - SimferopolPosted Oct 20, 2013
Pros: The buffet, the cleanliness, the friendliness, very good staff
Cons: Responsiveness to my cancellation request, which was placed with a week's notice. Also, it was very loud some nights in the hallway with drunk guests
Location: Wonderful marketplace 2 blocks away. Also a nice park a block or two away. Hotel on bus line which is good
Very nice property, nice clean property, breakfast buffet was very good. Everything about my stay was very good. All except for my refund for the last night..... My original reservation was through the night of the 29th. I discovered shortly after getting there that I had made a mistake, and my flight home was for the day of the 29th. So I notified the front desk of this error on Sunday, the 22nd, a full week before the night in question. I confirmed the last night's cancellation on Tuesday the 24th, at the front desk. It is October 19th now, and I have yet to receive my refund for that last night.

ex soviet era hotel?Posted Sep 18, 2013
Pros: Cheapness and availability.
Cons: Total overhaul and upgrade?
Location: historically interesting places, e.g. Sevastopol and Balaclava. (Charge of the Light Brigade in Crimean War, e.g.).
Could have been worse. I did not eat there and left early to catch a plane. Big hotel - so it was easy enough to find. For westerners and other aliens, it would help to have a big sign that was clearly visible - and said Moscow in Roman letters - as well as Cyrillic. Chief merit was low price and availability at short notice. Simferopol is a special place for me personally. Simferopol has a useful measure of nightlife for the younger types. Local wine is of interest, especially dessert and fortified. Simferopol is a kick off point for black sea resorts such as Yalta, Alyushta and Sudak.

Some Way To Go YetPosted Sep 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Most things worked pretty well, but there is still too much of the Soviet Union about this hotel. Modernised, yes, but not to 21st Century standards. We had a junior suite (although we booked a standard twin) so there was plenty of space, but the beds were narrow, the pillows lumpy and the bath short and narrow. The buffet breakfast was OK, but only part of the restaurant was lit, making it feel very depressing. No wi-fi. So nothing much actually wrong with the hotel, but I wouldn't really want to stay there again.

Would not recommendPosted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
My overall impression of the Moscow Hotel was not good. The staff is not helpful and, in fact, seem to want to cheat you with extra charges at times. The room is clean, however, the rooms are still circa 1970 with hard beds and virtually no amenities (they did include a refrigerator that was not functional). The included breakfast was the worst I've had in the last month of traveling. Furthermore, I spent an hour arguing with the manager about the fact that my "economy" room was supposed to have air conditioning, as stated on Hotels.com desciption of the room. This was apparently an "extra-charge" by the hotel. Would not recommend this hotel.

Helpful and friendly staffPosted Jul 19, 2013
Pros: The non-smoking signs everywhere.
Cons: The curtains that did not meet in the middle.
Location: On the main routes for most marshrutkas and busses. The bus station is nearby and, if you have a car, it is easy to reach Yalta or Sevastopol.
The Hotel Moskva displayed a lot of positive qualities for me. For a start, the hotel seemed to be non-smoking throughout and I was impressed to note that they provided disabled toilet facilities beside the restaurant. The reception staff were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. Some were better at English than others, but English is only one of many foreign languages and I never had any trouble being understood. The breakfast staff were efficient and provided an extensive selection which would surely have had something for most people. I tried dinner one evening and enjoyed the food as well as the help from the waiting staff. The only reason why I am not giving a 5 overall, is that the curtains in my room did not quite meet in the middle, but the room faced north-west, so it was not really worth complaining about, but nonetheless, it should not happen in a hotel of this standard. However the room, and the bathroom too, were always impeccably clean and the cleaning staff were friendly when you met them in the corridor. I was also extremely grateful that the café was open on the fifth floor when I arrived around midnight and still offering a full menu. Everything cost a fraction of what I would have paid in a similiar hotel in my own country. When you consider the standard of social housing anywhere in Simferopol, you can only admire the staff for what they achieve and reflect on what they're going home to after a hard day at work.

Moscow HotelPosted Jul 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very good service without delay. Breakfast was excellent. On departure, we had to leave early morning before breakfast time. Hotel brought us breakfast bags to take with us to the airport. That was very nice. Thanks!

Average remodeled former Soviet hotelPosted Apr 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
THis is jsut a former Soviet hotel that has remodeled. Nothing has relaly changed except that it is in a little nicer condition. Even the breakfast is the same as 20 years ago. Nothing special about this place but nothing bad either.

Value for moneyPosted Apr 2, 2013
Location: There are better places to stay in the Crimea than Simferopol.
Most enjoyable stay. Very helpful and friendly staff. Not particularly busy at the time I was there, nonetheless, a good, clean hotel.

Reasonable and quality Ukrainian HotelPosted Nov 11, 2012
This hotel is reasonable price and good quality for the price in Ukraine standards. Room is very clean and reasonable quality although small by Western standards (standard single room). Staff was very kind and helpful very nice ladies speak English well and smile. Breakfast is great nd worth it staying just for the full quality breakfast. Restaurant turns into club with quality band and clientele in evenings. It is close to bus station you can walk there. From bus station you can go to Evpatoria or Sevastopol. Stay here I gladly recommend.
