I have stayed at this hotel on two different occasions, once in Dec 2006 and in June 2008. Modern hotel but not ritzy but they do seem to have great quality. On par with what you would find in a large city in other parts of the developed world. Very close to the Metro with one (grey) line having a stop mere feet from the front door and the ring (brown) line a short walk down the street. Quite a few places to eat within walking distance that have English menus and there is a mall right down the street by the other Metro stop. Breakfast is included in the price of the room and is very big. There is a wide range of food that is offered at breakfast and a lot. The hotel also offers options on the price of its rooms. If you are sure you are not going to cancel or change your reservation, you can get a lower price. The fitness room is not very big, couple of cardio machines and a couple of universal machines. Not much in the area as far as tourist but those are easily accessible via the Metro. The staff on hand is very helpful and can speak English fluently. They also have a rental car company and a money exchanger in the hotel along with a person who will help coordinate travel/tourist trips. In my case, they helped book train tickets to St Petersburg via a local travel agent vs the alternative of trying to buy the tickets at the train station.
I would recommend this hotel if price is in your budget which seems to be the going rates for this level of hotel in Moscow.
