      Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Moscow Lesnaya

      Buen servicio y precio

      from

      Muy buen hotel, no tan caro como los otros hoteles internacionales en Moscú. El servicio es muy bueno- los recepcionistas son amigables, las camareras son meticulosas, la comida es muy sabrosa...Al registrarme, el recepcionista me explicó claramente cómo ir al Kremlin y me recomendó algunas excursiones buenas. El restaurante tiene una gran variedad de platos y bebidas y los meseros son muy atentos. Regresaré muy pronto.

      La segunda vez en este hotel- excelente como la primera vez- regresaré

      from

      Me quedé en este hotel durante mi segundo viaje a Moscú. Servicio excelente, habitaciones fantásticas y precios muy buenos. El personal era servicial, como siempre. Yo recomiendo sumamente el restaurante en el hotel, la comida es muy buena. El bufé de desayuno también es muy bueno. ¡Me alojaré aquí de nuevo cuando regrese a Moscú!

      2nd time at this hotel - Great like the first time - will go back

      from

      I stayed at this hotel during my second Moscow trip. Great service, great rooms and very good prices. The staff was helpfull as usual. I really recommend eating at the restaurant in the hotel, the food is very good. The breakfast buffet is also very good.

      I willk stay again when I go back to Moscow!!!!

      Horrible hotel

      from

      It is totally horrible hotel. I reserved a nonsmoking room, but received the heavy tobacco smell everywhere in the room, even the bath towels were stink of tobacco. Receptionist refused to change the room under the pretext of full loading of the hotel.

      Also in my room was a door to the next room (happily it was closed) but I could hear every word in the next room. Do not recommend.

      Weekend in Moscow

      from

      Stayed at the Holiday Inn from Thursday25th till Sunday 28th Jan.

      Overall a pleasent hotel typical of a good Premier Lodge or Holiday Inn, nothing fancy but very clean and tidy.

      Breakfast was ok but expensive (£13 each).

      Didn't eat lunch as i prefer to go out to a local restaurant than the soul less hotel ones.

      Location about 1 mile from the centre but it is very close to a Metro stop and once on the metro it is only 3 stops from Bolshoi/Red Square.

      Overall good, i would stay again if i got a good deal.

      A few facts about Moscow for anyone thinking about going.

      1. Very few people speak good English and there are even less signs in English, so don't expect an easy time if you don't know any Russian.

      2. The Metro is good but it doesn't have machines to buy your ticket so you will have to use the desk. I got the hotel reception to write down what i needed because the first time I tried to buy tickets was a disaster.

      3. Restaurants towards the centre may have an english copy of the menu, so ask.

      4. It is far from cheap. In fact it is the most expensive place i have been. Expect to pay about £3.50 for a half beer in hotels and restaurants in the center. Less as you travel towards the outskirts.

      5. If going into any musuem or to the Kremlin invest in either an englisg speaking guide or the audio guides available, most displays do not have english descriptions written next to them.

      6. If you want tickets to the ballet then book online at the Bolshoi's own website and collect there. I have seen some websites selling tickets for over £100 each when you can buy them from the bolshoi at approx £15.

      7.DON'T buy champagne at the Bolshoi. I rushed in and ordered 2 glasses of champagne (Veuve) without looking at the price and had to be revived when charged £70.

      8. It is very cold in winter, it had just snowed when we arrived and soon reached -10, and it feels like it, so don't under estimate it.

      9. Get your hotel to prebook your taxi at the airport, expect to pay about £45 if you have it arranged and scapled for about £65 if you leave it to the guys outside the airport.

      10. If you haven't booked yet don't forget you need a visa and these are not cheap and need to be arranged in advance.

      Hope this helps, if i can answer any further questions then please contact me.

      Value for Money?? maybe

      from

      I was not so impressed overall. But then, it's only Holiday Inn.

      The internet access is expensive if you use their business center.

      The laundary service costs more than the price of clothes. Am I the only one surprised? Rooms are bland and tasteless. Location is ok, in the sense it is close to metro Belorusskaya. Lobby is dull. The whole decor is simple and boring. The price is still aboiut $300 a night (more if you add all the conversion rates). Moscow is an expensive city, what to do.. There is no concierge service

      or no help in buying train tickets.

      For about $50 more, the nearby Marriott Tverskaya or Sheraton are more value for money.

      Very Nice Hotel

      from

      We stayed here while completing an adoption. Found the staff to be warm and friendly. Service was excellent compared to other places we stayed during the adoption process (2 trips).

      Lobby and Bar area was smokey, but what else would one expect in a country where smoking is not assumed to be pure evil, and is excepted. Overall the staff is making a valiant effort at western service and values!

      Clean and polite

      from

      Enjoyed my stay at this holiday inn. Room (executive suite) was clean and comfortable. Stated there was a gift shop, but it was not there. Business center is a joke, do not plan on finding internet service unless you bring your own PC/ portable / blackberry / etc. Smoking in lobby / bar area. Long walk to city Red Square. 10 minute ride will cost about $30.00 each way. Food is great - but be prepared to pay for it. Staff is polite and helpful.

      Comfortable and clean room

      from

      My mother and I went to Moscow for New Year's and spent four nights at the new Holiday Inn near my mother-in-law's apartment. We were impressed with the high ceilings and the comfortable beds and slept well there (no street noise). The location is excellent, near the metro station (three blocks). The coffee pot broke in my hands on the first morning, and when I told the front desk they wanted me to pay for it! After that misunderstanding was cleared up the manager sent chocolates to our room and we enjoyed the rest of our stay. The lobby was smoky, but our non-smoking room was fresh and clean. Would stay here again and recommend it for visitors to Moscow. The internet rate was very good compared to other new hotels in the area.

      My favorite hotel in Moscow

      from

      After having stayed at two of the other outrageously expensive Marriotts (Renaissance and Aurora) - I was pleased to find the perfect business traveler hotel. Located just off the main Tverskaya road, this hotel is perfect. Brand new, clean, and $250 a night makes it half of any of the other major US chains.

      Free wireless Internet in the lobby, and hook in high speed Internet in your room for $25 per 24 hours.

Many of the propaganda in the west seems just that. He took us to an amazing metro station filled with brass statues. Where so many people had touched the dogs noses as they walked past, leaving the noses bright shiny. Charlie then guided us to a theatre for a drink the theatre had opened at the collapse of the USSR. With ...

We spot a slightly better situated seat with our backs to the wall and move there as we are now being entertained by a man on the grand piano set up on this floor. He's actually quite good. We haven't eaten since our piece of toast at 11.00 so I go a check out those kiosks, although Ian's not fancying anything at the moment. The choice of pasty type things in ...
