Great location and wonderful staff, but....
Posted Aug 11, 2013
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.
