Breakfast was very poor. Rooms had no curtains or anything to cover from daylight. Windnows were on the ceiling that was super high so we could not open/close 'em. Besides it was so warm in the room that we had to sleep with the fan on the whole night. Bed was not comfortable either. Internet did not work in the... More

Location is the best. 5 min walk to Red square, close to metro station, restaurants and shopping malls. The reception staff were helpful. The rooms are small and poorly equipped. Breakfast is ok. I would recommend this hotel for it's great location at reasonable price.

We booked a double room with a window and were given a twin room without a window. This is a budget hotel, so we went expecting much, but this room looked nothing like the photos online and it was very hot and humid with no air con or ventilation. We asked for the room we had ordered but one wasn't... More

There's also plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and malls around to check out. STAFF 3/5 The staff were semi helpful. They wouldn't go out of their way for... More

I cannot fault the location of this hotel, it is within walking distance of many of the central sites and is worth its weight in gold. It also represents good value for money. I spent my time in one of the central inner rooms with no window which do have charms of their own. A little like the old communist... More

This hotel gives you an accurate picture of modern Russian life, history and politics. My room, although not being of the cheapest category, had its window in the roof, with no view on the street. (The breakfast room doesn't have windows at all.) Once late at night I was woken up by loud rock music, and again in the early... More

Stayed at Matreshka for a few nights.I must say I kind of knew what I was expecting so I had no disappointments. Firstly, location is a top, top bonus. 2 minutes to Lubyanka's metro, or 5 to Teatralnaya or Kuznetskij Most. Entrance is through a narrow close jammed between two old style Russian buildings. There's a bar, restaurant and a... More
