Receptionists tired and indifferent to the point of being rude, but hey,
this is no Hilton. The croud is on the "workers' hostel"
side with an occasional "flat-face", however, perfectly safe
(safer than many other capitals). For me the biggest pain is the
location, but I have a minor medical condition, otherwise perfectly
reacheable by public transport.
Unbeatable value for money, this is Moscow... Full-sized room with
proper bathroom, polite maids, good WiF, clean. The best authentic
Chinese in town, no joke, 24-th floor, separate elevator (ask the
security for direction). People come here fore real Chinese cuisine in
Moscow without having to pay an arm and a leg. And now - a Korean
restaurant on the -1 floor (take the stairs). 100%. This hotel is a
special world in many respects, give it a try for a night, if this is
not yours - move somewhere else.
