I think this hotel rates a solid 4/5 -- not quite 5/5, but definitely 4/5. It's located a bit over a mile from Red Square, which is very convenient if the weather's nice and you don't mind a walk. The hotel's construction is super-solid: you can run down the halls and your footsteps are whisper-quiet, without the echoes you hear with modern construction.
We got a good rate when staying here because the management gives a discount to families in Russia. That's us. We got a two-room suite which was really impressive- tall ceilings, a wide living room, huge bathroom, and overall pretty comfortable.
The few annoyances were pretty minor: the elevators were tiny and slow, the internet's expensive, temperature control in the rooms was a bit spotty, that kind of thing.
The (included) morning breakfast buffet was just great. We ate at the restaurant and got room service more than once for dinner, and it was good but pricy. Front desk staff was helpful and knowledgable.
Overall, I think it's probably a pretty good combination of location, price, and quality for Moscow.
