Inconvenient Location

Posted Sep 24, 2012 on Hotels
There is very little information provided by the hotel staff and the website about how to reach the hotel from its nearest metro Kitai Gord, particularly when you arrive from another part of Russia with luggage. The walking distance between the hotel and Metro station is at least about 10 mins and the Red Sq another 10-15 mins hike. The information provided in the hotel website are inaccurate as far as convenience of the distance is concerned. The hotel room is bit tired the mattress of the double bed is sagging. Bathroom of my room was clean and the room had abundant natural light. The general info about the surroundings is bit hard to come from the hotel staff, they could be more friendly particularly to those who are not familiar with Cyrillic alphabets.

Great location

Posted Jul 1, 2012 on Hotels
Decent place. Great value and good location. Only 15 minute walk to red square. Shared bathrooms was a drawback. Moscow is a really cool place to visit. Hotel attendant poke good English. More like a high end hostel. I would recommend to anyone that doesn't mind a shared bathroom.

Better than expected

Posted Jun 8, 2012 on Hotels
After reading the reviews I was expecting a right old dive. But the rooms were clean (we had a private) and the location was a 10min walk to town. quiet streets so not too much noise at night. bathrooms need a refurb but the price is cheap. staff were friendly and helpful.

Pros: deutsch sprechendes Personal
Location: ca. 10 bis 15 min. zu Fuß von der nähesten U-Bahnstation
Nettes Personal, sehr einfache aber ausreichende Ausstattung. Küche gut ausgestattet, Bad könnte sauberer sein - geht aber. Hausschuhe nicht vergessen!

Hostel Basilika is so far from metro station ...

Posted Apr 9, 2012 on Hotels
Hostel Basilika is so far from metro station and to find it the first time is not easy. I stayed just for one night. But I think many workers from any russian places live here long time and feeling like at home. I was in private room but at night these people walked near my door and made a noise. The shower is too old and the water was cold. The window too old and not open. After all the clock on the church near hostel strike every hour. I not recomend this hostel to other travellers.

Basilica Hostel

Posted Oct 24, 2011 on Hotels
Naam op website (Sweet Moscow Hostel) klopt niet, moet zijn Basilica Hostel. Prima en schoon hostel, met gedeelde badkamer/WC's. Op loopafstand van het Rode Plein en Kremlin, nog dichterbij Kitay Gorod (het oude stadscentrum). Bij KG ook de metro. Blij verrast met het gratis WiFi. Ook mogelijk om voor geringe kosten een ontbijt op de kamer te laten bezorgen. Prijs/Kwaliteitverhouding erg gunstig, aanrader voor korte vakanties in Moskou

Basic but good, great location!

Posted Aug 28, 2011
Basic, not for people who enjoy pampering. Very helpful friendly staff. Communal bathroom but not a problem at all, it was kept very clean always. Self catering in communal kitchen, which can get busy, living room with tele and PC. Cheap accomodation with a really great location, Red Square is a short walk away, Metro also not too far, supermarket 5 minute walk. Very helpful information/welcome pack in the room giving tips on travel, resturants, clubs etc. There were mainly young people staying so it had a great atmosphere but not a problem for older people either. We are a family of 4 with teenagers, so it was great for us. Artwork from local artists adorn the walls and sculpture on show in the outside. Gazebo was nice to just sit in and chill. I would definately recomend this but don't expect 5 star.

Situé dans un endroit sinistre. Cet auberge est très ancien. Le service reste à désirer.

Sweet Moscow Hostel is actually Basilicum Hostel

Posted May 3, 2011 on Hotels
The name Sweet Moscow Hostel is wrong! The actual name is Basilicum Hostel, the best way to come is to take metro to Kitai-gorod station and then follow Solyanka str, you may also take tram nr 39 from f ex Chistiye Prudy metro station. Quite comfortable room, clean and even fresh, while shower is quite dirty, seems to be unhygienic and feels very uncomfortable. Take some shower flippflops/shoes with you! Anyway, if you stay just for some days, it`s OK, because the hostel is so good located in the center, easy way to the Red Square. Receptionists are pleasant.
