Excellent hotel located next to one of the main walking streets in Moscow. You can walk to the Kremlin and Red Square in about 25 minutes. On Old Arbat Street there are plenty of local cusine and some bars including Hard Rock.
I have stayed at the Golden Ring on many occasions on business and always been very impressed - rooms nice, clean and spacious.
One negative point - a colleague was staying there and asked them to look after his luggage between checking out and flying from Moscow. They mistakenly loaded his stuff onto a coach that was departing elsewhere, and he lost the lot.
Unique Quality: The breakfast buffet is vast, and the food excellent.
The location is ideal, right by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and very close to the Old Arbat and Smolenskaya subway.
it depends on your money:)I can advice u hotel Golden Ring moderate prices ab 140 per day in standart, corporate and business apartments. Hotel Marriot Grand good also average-300$
Unique Quality: locates just 3 min from The Arbat street once selebrated as bohemian heart due to its tiny literary cafes filled with the capitals great writers actors and scientists so it situated in down town and close to all famous shops and sights:)
Directions: Smolenskaya ploshad 5, and marriot-tverskaya str 26
A Moscow Morning from the Golden Ring Hotel
Thanks for all the suggestions and tips.I really appreciate them a lot! :)
But now it seems that I've got another problem..haha...I cant seem to find a decent hotel in Moscow..they're all either expensive,far from the Metro or outside the ring,far from the Red Square.
Could anyone help me recommend a hotel..guest house or motels,whatever that's got a reasonable price and convenient?I've tried looking through the net but the resources are limited and its rather difficult because most of them dont state the price either.
Thanks a lot.

If you are willing to travel a bit, the Aerotel at Domodedovo Airport is around 60 US a night. They have a free shuttle bus to the airport and you can then get the train direct to the centre of the city. If you do go for this, try and get a non-smoking room as the smoking ones stink!
Other than that, I can't think of any decent hotels that are not ridiculously over priced. The Golden Ring Hotel is very nice, but at 250 US a night, I only stay there when my company pays...
I have heard that the Sputnik Hotel is adequate for the price.
Hope that helps.
There are a number of rather cheap hotels not in the center but close to metro stations. So, to get there will take 15-20 min. Traffic in Moscow is absolutely crazy, and metro could be 10 times faster.
Look through this hotels list: http://www.besteastern.com/online/gethoteldescription.asp?id=201431
Near metro Ismailoso: Ismailovo-Alfa at rate about $100; Ismailovo-Betta and -Gamma are twice cheaper but lower class. Check also "Voskhod" (not in this list) near metro Vladykino. See: http://www.voschod.ru/en/ (site is not fully English, prices are in roubles, see two last coloumns and divide by 28) price varies from $40 to $150.
