Great hotel not far from downtonw MoscowPosted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: I liked the amenities, cleanliness, and the ambience as well as its great location.
Cons: Just keep up the good work and quality of service.
Location: Arbat street is very close and you could walk to it but the weather in Moscow is awful. When it rains, it pours. Bring your umbrella.
The Golden Ring hotel is a classical 5 star hotel whose staff is excellent. We arrived at half past midnight on a Sunday night, after being ripped off at the Sheremetyevo Airport with a 10,000 rubles ride to the hotel. When I mentioned this to the Front Desk, he was embarrassed by his compatriots at the airport who are eager to rip off Americans who in our case did not have any other means of transportation due to the fact that the Metro was already closed. The Front Desk attendant told us that the taxi fee should have been 1,750 rubles. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we were able to exchange dollars to rubles, a 24 hr service which I consider great.

Yes, it's a 5* hotelPosted May 9, 2017
Pros: Amazing view from 18 floor, central location, room comfort.
Cons: Standard room is way too small. No AC in Spring during hot days is a nightmare.
Location: The location is very central. Lots of restaurants, supermarkets, metro station and entertainment around.
Some people write this is not a 5* hotel. That's not right. In a single trip I stayed at a 4* Hilton in Mexico City and in this hotel, hence can compare them. My comparison is in favour of the Golden Ring hotel, it's definitely better than a 4* Hilton. I also stayed at 3-4* in Cancun and Miami. Again, this hotel is way above 3-4* by any international standards. Facilities are a bit obsolete, and you should not expect western level of service. Staff don't smile because it's a national Russian feature, not because people are not happy to help. The service is good enough. Rooms are clean. The gym is spacious with all necessary machines. You don't find such big a fitness room in a 3*, and not in every 4* western hotel. The price is cheap comparing to other 5* Moscow hotels. Highly recommended.

Another beyond expectation stayPosted Mar 11, 2017
Another stay at this hotel and once again this hotel and its staff exceeds all expectations. The standards they set are high and it is amazing to see how they meet all expectations every single time. A week before check-in I sent them an email asking particular floor and window-view. They kindly accomodated request and put me exactly to the room I wanted. Rooms are clean and spacious as usual. Amazing job, guys!!! Absolutely love this hotel and looking forward to my another stay there!
