... making vegetable dumplings with the owner lady. There is an art to making different shapes, and I was all thumbs… But the finished dumplings were divine, steamed for our supper. We spent the 3rd day in Mongolia at the Hustai Nurwuu National Park - 100kms west of UB. This park is home to the endangered Przewalski horses (called Takhi locally). They are much lighter in colour than the local horses……but otherwise not too ...
... longer than usual; therefore, the next year a new mausoleum of marble and granite was built. When Stalin died in 1953 he was embalmed and laid along side Lenin until Krushchev came along with his de-stalinisation programme in 1961. His body was removed and buried in the walls of the Kremlin Necropolis.
The Kremlin Necropolis is an area of the Kremlin wall behind Lenin’s tomb where famous and revered Russians are buried. These range from ...
... then, but qualifying on time was the least he deserved for a gutsy run. After a short session, I headed to the Pushkin museum. An easy ride on the metro, 5 stops from the stadium, it's easy enough to find if not immediately obvious which beautiful building holds the museum. The queue outside looked bad, but moved quickly if sporadically. 400rub entry. They've gone large on the pre-raphaelites (finally, use of the word 'pre' without my having ...
... goods & cosmetics. However a statue of Lenin still beckons imperatively in front of the building. The ‘Fountain of the Friendship of Peoples’ is stunning. Of the nine pavilions most are monuments to Soviet science which have lost their original exhibits & filled with goods for sale. One of their boldest monuments, the ‘Space Obelisk’ consists of ...
... was the way to move around and enjoy the beauty of the different stations. It truely is a museum. Every station is different. At least 15 of them have a theme and wall paintings or mosaic color the stations, art deco style lamps and beautifully decorated pillars. A pleasure for the eye. The Kremlin was an experience by itself. It was reasonably calm and we were, luckily, ahead of the tour groups. The churches within the Kremlin ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Moscow - Lesnaya
Buen servicio y precio
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
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
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!!!!
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.
Stayed at the Holiday Inn from Thursday25th till Sunday 28th Jan.
Value for Money?? maybe
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
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
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
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
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.
