I stayed in the hotel for one night to see the magnificent Stalinist building. The hotel is very nice and breakfast was amazing. However it is more of a business hotel and the location is not very good for tourists. The closest metro station is a bit of a walk which felt a bit unsafe at night. I believe the minibar and breakfast were way overpriced but as expected and wouldn’t let that stop you from booking the hotel. My room was very high and had a beautiful view; it was the best view of Moscow I had my whole trip. The room was beautiful and clean. I wouldn’t recommend staying here if it’s your first time in Moscow only because of the location. Otherwise it is fantastic.
Situated in the smallest of Stalin’s seven sisters the hotel offers a typical Hilton experience with Russian hospitality. It’s well located close to the metro which makes getting to all the major sights easy and the stations to St Petersburg, Kazan and where the Trans siberian departs are clustered together across the road from the hotel. I found lots of good cafes and shops close by. The pool and sauna area is beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are large but I found the bed and pillows uncomfortable and the room temperature was too hot and I was not able to get the air conditioning to work. The large windows open which is good for cooling but it’s too noisy to keep them open and I think rather dangerous to allow them to open at this height. Room service was excellent quality and delivered with friendly, efficient service.
