Historical Traveler Reviews Maxima Zarya Hotel Moscow
Ich bin dieses Jahr schon zweimal im Zarya gewesen. Der zweite Aufenthalt war sehr viel besser als das erste Mal. Für ein 3-Sterne-Hotel ist der Service recht gut. Nehmen Sie keines der Economy Zimmer, Standard oder mehr ist besser. Man kann leicht buchen, es ist leicht zu finden, die Lage ist gut, die Angestellten sind nett und es ist sauber. Im Vergleich zu anderen Hotels in Moskau ist es reicht billig. Am Empfang spricht man Englisch und ist hilfsbereit.
Man sollte nur kein elegantes Hotel erwarten. Es ist ein preisgünstiges Hotel mit sauberen Zimmern, einer recht guten Lage, einigen Annehmlichkeiten, es ist nichts Besonderes, fast schon langweilig aber wenn Sie nach einem guten, sauberen Hotel zu einem fairen Preis suchen ... ja, dann ist man hier richtig. Es bietet ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Ich zahle nicht gerne zu viel. Ich komme oft nach Moskau und ich komme häufig hier unter, ich habe insgesamt bestimmt schon 15 Tage hier verbracht und alles war gut.
I travel to Moscow once in a couple of month, and i can assure you that this is a good place to stay. I stayed at Zarya for a couple of days during my business trip last week. Rooms are nice and clean, stuff is friendly and heplful and it's worth the money you pay for it. It's deffinately underrated by some other reviews.
Viajo a Moscú una vez al mes y te puedo asegurar que es un buen lugar donde alojarse. Me quedé en el Zarya por unos días durante mi viaje de negocios la semana pasada. Las habitaciones son buenas y limpias, el personal es amigable y servicial y vale el dinero que cuesta. Los otros críticos definitivamente lo menosprecian.
Ich komme alle paar Monate nach Moskau und ich kann Ihnen versichern, dass das Zarya ein gutes Hotel ist. Ich habe hier während meiner Geschäftsreise letzte Woche ein paar Tage verbracht. Die Zimmer sind schön und sauber, die Angestellten sind freundlich und hilfsbereit und es ist sein Geld wert. Es ist auf jeden Fall in einigen der anderen Bewertungen nicht genug gewürdigt worden.
Cet hôtel est situé dans les faubourgs de Moscou, prés du métro (et du parc) Vladikino. D'après ce que j'ai pu comprendre il s'agit des anciennes chambres construites pour les Jeux Olympiques de 1980.
Les points positifs : tarifs peu élevés (50$ la nuit), expérience « roots » avec des russes... (Parfait pour les wannabe sociologues... dont je ne suis pas !)
Les points négatifs : le reste, chambre petite, literie hors d'âge, petit déjeuner indigent.
Cet hôtel illustre le fait qu'il y a peu d'hôtel intermédiaire à Moscou. Il y a les hôtels de classe internationale, hors de prix 300-600$ la nuit, pour les étrangers et les nouveaux riches russes, et des hôtels de ce type pour les russes « moyens »...
Bref à éviter, sauf si vous voulez vivre une expérience sociologique (pendant un jour tout au plus...).
Dodgy Room from Hell!
Well - where should I start? I stayed at this hotel which was booked through a Russian tour. When I got there & met some of the others, we were shown to our rooms. Some of the rooms we luxurious, with giant bathrooms, massives beds & even private lounges. They had been recently renovated, although many of the other rooms were just mediocre - a bit old, but still tidy, & with all features working.
When we got to our room I got the shock of my life. This was meant to be a 2-star hotel (or 3-star, depending on where you look), but I have stayed in 1-star hostels that have been a million times better!! The room stunk of decay, & we couldn't open to windows so that we could actually breathe any fresh air (we just breathed in rot for 4 days)! Every single piece of wallpaper was falling off the wall. The beds & pillows were ancient & also reeked. The bathroom ceiling was cracked, the paint was peeling off, & some of it was even falling in. When you used the shower it made a huge noise that woke up the whole building. It looked as if the room hadn't been touched for about 20 years, neither customer nor cleaning-wise! Somone elses room had building materials stored in it & cigarettes on the floor.
This would not have been so bad had all the rooms been this way, but we were irritated to know that we were paying just the same as everyone else, & had the worst room out of our entire group. The guests with the nice rooms didn't even realise that other people had such terrible rooms. We were gutted that we got the bum rooms, & I'm not quite sure why the tour cost so much with accommodation like that!
The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the metro. I didn't have any problem walking around by myself at night, but many people said they would not even walk around in a group after dark. The area looked quite dodgy & you had to walk down multiple dark alleyways. The metro had some OK markets around it, but in general, the area wasn't up to standard & the hotel was so awful. I've really seen it all now - I'm suprised we even had any water, judging by the condition of the room.
Shame we went there - I wouldn't even receommend the whole tour (Beetroot Express) purely because they expect people to stay in accommodation like that when paying a small fortune for the tour itself. Not good enough!
Good Value, but location is not great.
Firstly, be careful when you are looking for this place. We were tired after a train journey, and some of the maps on the web show the location of the sister hotel. We stayed here for a week during our trip to Russia. It was much cheaper than most accommodation in Russia, and the room was clean, spacious and comfortable.
Our main gripe was with the location of the hotel. It is about 10 minutes walk from the nearest tube station, which is still a fair bit from the centre of town.
The staff were helpful. The breakfast buffet was passable.
Considering some of the other place with which we got stung in Russia, this wasn't bad.
This is a bog standard 3-star Russian hotel, which would be 1-star in much of the rest of the world. We ended up here as it was booked by the same people who booked our train tickets. There was nothing especially wrong with it out of the ordinary, but it is located way too far from the central tourist sites. It's not worth the commute to stay at this place.
Good job on renovation
The renovation is stilll in progress.
Rooms are above the average, food is great, front desk person is very helpful, knows everything, just do not speak English. Everything is new and shiny.
A little bit far from center. Ten minutes to nearest Metro station and 20-25 min ride.
Nice place to stay!
It was my second visit to Moscow and i can say i am quite satisfied with my accomodation in Maxima Zarya hotel. Michael on the Reception was very helpful. Good luck!

... Packed with Japanese tourists (they get everywhere !!!!).
I had been told that the queue for Lenin's Mausoleum would be huge but I couldn't believe there only about 50 people in the queue.
I'm no freak or fan of Lenin, but I really wanted to go in.
So in I went !!!!
Just outside the Mausoleum are memorials to the past Russian leaders. The only one's I can remember that I could figure out were Yuri Andropov and Leonid Brezhnev.
Also the remains of past ...
... Along the Kremlin walls in Red Square are the ashes of many Russian VIPs both political and military as well as scientists and Heroes of the People. They include Yuri Gagarin, Stalin, Brezhnev , Andropov and many many more. The inside of the tomb is a black marble and very difficult to negotiate when your glasses have gone dark in the sun! The body itself was spotlit and looked for all the world like a waxwork. When we were there it seemed ...

Tsar Ivan the Great (Ivan the Terrible’s grandfather) had finally booted out the Mongols and in celebration, he invited Italian architects to complete the Kremiln’s walls, towers and 30 meter wide moat. It is expertly maintained, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Moscow’s 2nd most popular destination.

... tower was cool. So After another whistle stop tour, it was back to the hostel to get ready for the mini buses at 12 to take us to the train station to board the Trans Siberian Express... How f**kin exciting!!!!!! P.S. am having the best time ever, I keep reminding myself to take it all in and take note of how much fun we're having & that am not at work & don't really have anything to worry about.... When am I ever gonna be able to do this again. Not that I'm rubbing it in or owt ...
... three weeks to two months, the posits so unreliable!) I then headed back through the snow and spent the day at the hostel. I finished off my risotto for dinner, then at 11:30pm it was time to head out to the metro station and in to the Leningradksy station to catch my 01:00am train to St. Petersburg. Once my train arrived I was surprised to find out it was nice and new, and even had the welcome announcements in English! Then it was time to sleep on my comfy bottom ...
