An historic hotel built in 1876 just behind the Bolshoi Theatre so within walking distance of many of Moscow's major attractions. Although this hotel has a local four-star rating, we prefer to offer this hotel as a good value three-star option for Moscow, especially as you can not beat the location. There are 116 rather old fashioned rooms of 7 categories spread over 5 floors. The hotel has a bar, lobby bar and restaurant. The decor is looking a little tired-looking but the staff are really friendly and did we mention the location?
