Un hotel Olímpico - An Olympic Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2012

Estuvimos buscando un hotel pequeño , céntrico con un buen precio y acabamos en estos grandes hoteles del grupo Izmailovo que se construyeron para alojar a los participantes de las olimpiadas de 1980 y que ahora se han convertido en grandes hoteles con un precio razonable . todas las agencias te dirigen a estos hoteles en cuanto buscas habitaciones a precios reducidos
Nuestra habitación estaba en el piso 28 y pedimos una de las que están renovadas , que salen un poco más caras , pero están bastante bien . El problema que tuvimos es que no bajaba la temperatura de la habitación de los treinta grados a pesar de que nos cambiamos a varias habitaciones y todas tenían el mismo problema . Según los señores de recepción se debía al buen tiempo que hacía y al número de horas de sol que había , pues estábamos en el momento del año en que los días son más largos
La parada del metro Partizanskaya está a trescientos metros del hotel y desde allí se tardan unos 20 minutos , 6 estaciones , hasta la Plaza Roja que es el centro de Moscú
Tiene al lado el parque Izmailovo , que es un paseo muy agradable y el mercado más grande de artesanías de Moscú , que el fín de semana está dedicado a los turistas y entre semana está dedicado a los locales y a la gente que hace y vende las artesanías
No es lo ideal pero permite visitar Moscú desde un hotel relativamente céntrico que está bien

We were looking for a small, centrally located hotel with a good price and just finished in these large Izmailovo group hotels , that were built to accommodate the participants of the Olympics in 1980 and now has become a big group of reasonably priced hotels. All agencies will target these hotels when you ask for rooms at budget prices
Our room was on the 28th floor and it was one that had been renewed, they are a little more expensive, but they are pretty good. The problem we had is that the room temperature did not lower from thirty degrees even though we tried and moved to several rooms , because all had the same problem. According to reception personnel it was due to the weather , that was very good at that time of the year when there are many hours of hours of sun, because we were at the time of year when the sun hours are longer
The nearest metro station , Partizanskaya , is 300 m from the Hotel and it takes about 20 minutes, 6 stations, to reach the Red Square station that is in the centre of Moscow
It is nearthe Izmailovo Park, which is very pleasant to walk and here is the largest handicrafts market in Moscow, that on the weekend is dedicated to tourists and on weekdays is devoted to the people who make and sell crafts
It's not our ideal but it allows you to visit Moscow from a relatively central hotel , that is reasonably well

Good value for money by Moscow standards

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 5, 2011

We just stayed at hotel Gamma. All in all, it is good value for money by Moscow standards.

Upon exiting Partizanska metrostation, one immediately sees the different large concrete blocks each housing one of the hotels of the Izmailovo complex (Alfa, Vega, Gamma,...)... and this first impression is rather negative.

Once inside, it turns out to be not that bad...

Indeed, most people at reception do not speak English... However, all were polite with us.

Indeed, they do not especially care about smiling or being friendly, but that is no different in most Russian places.

Credit cards accepted.

The room was clean, beds are ok, bathroom well-equipped.

This room is probably cosy and warm during the cold Russian winters, in summer however, on the 13rd floor with the window facing southeast, and without airconditioning, it is definitely too warm... and the fan installed next to the television is too small to help.

Wifi is free, connection was also possible from the room.
Very near to the room, there was a sort of common room with a water dispenser and ironing facilities.

Different bars and restaurants on the first four floors cater for the hotel residents, we haven't really tried one of them, preferring to spend time in the city centre.

Breakfast is not included and costs 400r (10EUR). It is organised as a buffet with very wide choice. Good value for money (again... by Moscow standards).

Security inside the hotel is very good. You have to show your guest card to a guard before you can reach the elevators. Also outside the hotel and near the metro station entrance, all feels safe, there are always a lot of people around, at any given time. Note that upon exiting the metro station, you will invariably be approached by touts working for the different hotels of the complex offering you a room.

The distance between the hotel and the metro station is really small and metro connections to the centre are really frequent (up to every 90" and never more than a few minutes) so the fact that the hotel is outside the centre is really no issue.

Do pay attention when browsing through other hotels outside the centre. They all claim to be close to a metro station but Google Maps often shows a 20 minute walk).

Note that Partizanskaya metro station hasn't got any escalators. Also transfers from one line to another in the Moscow metro often include stairways. You may want to consider a taxi when travelling with heavy luggage.

Unique Quality: Good value for money in the overexpensive Moscow hotel market

Directions: Partizanskaya metro station

a nice experince

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 24, 2009

We stay 5 nights in Izmailovo Gamma in September. Our room was nice and clean enough. It was on the 21th floor with a very nice view of Moscow city.
However it is a little far from the city center but as the metro station is right in front of the hotel, you don’t feel the distance.
Another advantage of this hotel is the “izmailovo market” near it, Which includes a museum and very nice colorful architecture in addition to the souvenir shops?

Unique Quality: you can find everything you require easily. there are lots of resy=turants, shops, pool, sauna, ... in the complex.
and one of the other important points is the tv room with cold and boiling water(for tea or coffee) and iron room in every floor that you can use whenever you want.

As rooms are fairly inexpensive try First class

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 25, 2007

I liked this hotel. As rooms were inexpensive i ve taken First Class Double room which still was two times cheaper than standard room in SAS or similar. It was newly furnished room with everything i needed. I liked the electronic security system in hotel as only guys with room keys from their floor can enter the floor. Generally i like hotels that are big, middle priced and located a little bit aside from the center. That makes them cozy place to stay while you're doing your sneaky tourist things :).

Unique Quality: Huge.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 3, 2007

We stayed here for 5 nights in Dec 06. It is an enormous hotel as it originally was the accom for the athletes competing at the 1980 Olympic Games. It is used by lots of tour groups because of its size but also has lots of locals who are holidaying or working in Moscow. I'll start with the good bits: location - near a train station and the markets, facilities - 24hr internet, post office, lots of little shop etc. Terrible bits - we had unrenovated rooms that were awful!! The bathroom (esp the toilet) was horrendous, the two single beds were tiny - my husband hung of the sides and the two chairs were mouldy! There is a prostitution ring running out of the lobby - you will easily pick the madams and the postitutes sitting the lobby. I would only recommend the Turkish restaurant to eat in - we tried two others inclusing the Golf cafe and wouldn't go back.

i was helping one of my friends to check in in the hotel-it took more than 1 hour to do it and not because there were too many people going through same procedure-women at reception are very slow, not nicely talking, no sign of smile..hopefuly foreign people mostly dont understand what they say, to summarise-it reminded me of old soviet union times service..:(
but as i know accomodation is not too bad and the price not too high, so maybe you could close your eyes at such inconvinience..

The Izmailovo hotel is the building that was constructed for the Olympics that 1/2 that world boycoted. Some for the features have not been upgraded since, but the hotel itself is fine.

I did not experiance the "COCA COLA" water that others have, But I will say that the attitude of the counter staff could well be improved. Having said that, I have read that in Russia many people have never experianced customer service so do obviously not know how to deliver it.

The Breakfast is HUGE, and enjoyable, (russian coffee does take a little time to get used to) but the location although out of the city, given the proximity and frequence of the metro is no hassle at all

Cheap Hotel Complex

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 23, 2006

Actually, I stayed at the Izmailova Delta building, which is next to the Gamma building. Huge complex, which has nightclub, bowling, billiards, casino, gym, restaurants, etc. Price was not that great, since we went through a booking agency...think I paid $100 a night. Took 3 hours to check-in, since they couldn't find my reservation number. Thank God, they finally figured it out. You would think they would be able to pull it up using my name...but no...welcome to Russia!!! Good location, only if you want to be close to the huge Izmailove Flea Market. Best place to haggle for Russian gifts. Otherwise, going to clubs/restaurant in Moscow at night will require a long taxi ride back. Is right next to a subway stop and the subway system is great, once you figure out the cyrillic language. Found it also amusing that hotel security will gladly be your pimp and provide you with a "nice" Russian girl and will gladly make arrangements for her to come up to your room. Moscow doesn't have too many affordable hotel rooms, so I guess the Izmailova Delta/Gamma complex is not too bad for the price.

Directions: Northeast suburbs of Moscow

The Cheapest accomodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 4, 2005

Huge buildings, really not typical but Gamma-Delta is clean and safe. Body guards are checking the cards and documents before to let you get inside the elevators.. they offer you even beautiful russian girls... Inside there is everything you need, amusments, ethnic restaurants, beauty saloon and shops. It is not in the city centre but just 5/10 minutes by walking there is the metro station Ismailovsky Park and in 20 minutes it is possible to reach the city centre. The subway system is really efficient and fast. Close to the Gamma-Delta there is a crowded market. Be carefull on the thiefs. There it is possible to find nice russian typical souvenirs.

Unique Quality: I will never forget the view of 2 real brown bears on the gate of the Izmailovo Market. All around snow and the lake in front of the building was completely frozen.
I spent a wonderful night playing pool with my Bombolina unforgetable.

Stay in the former Olympic village

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 15, 2005

I spent five nights in the Ismailovo Gamma-Delta whilst staying in Moscow. Whilst being out of the city centre, its connection via the metro meant that it was not as out of the way as originally expected. The facilities were reasonable - the room did need a refit and it had definitely outlived its intended lifespan. The breakfasts were very good and hearty - and with a wide range of foods which allowed you to skip lunch. There are a large number of facilities in-house from discos, strip clubs, pharmacies, coffee shops etc. as well as a range of restaurants. By European standards the 3* accommodation is tatty - many of the fittings are doubtless still the original ones that were in situ in the 1980 Olympic village. That being said, it is safe, secure, and was comfortable enough for sleeping. At USD 70 a night it was reasonably cheap accommodation and was fine enough for my modest needs.

Unique Quality: If you like low frills hotel then this might be for you, and there is almost a feel of being in a time capsule. I've been to better places for the same price but it served its purpose very well.

Coca Cola tap

by written on July 4, 2005

Don't drink water from the tap; if you turn on the warm tap, you'll get water like cola..
It must be a left over from Coca Cola, who sponsored the Olympic Games in 1980.

Unique Quality: A good thing was the ''Yellow Papered Book'' on the table of every hotelroom.

A hotel, specially built for the Olympic Games in 1980. (look at the colours on the building) It's an amazing building with lots of things to do. Visit Izmailovsky Park, one of the biggest in the world.

Unique Quality: A lot of souvenirshops are located in the hotel.

Hotel Ismailovo

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 20, 2004

The enormous Izmailovo Gamma-Delta Hotel complex was built in 1979 and renovated in 1998. During the 1980 Moscow Olympics the complex was used to accommodate many of the athletes attending the games and although not centrally located. .

Unique Quality: Of particularly interest to tourists, is the neighbouring Izmailovo market, one of the city's major tourist attractions due to its extensive array of traditional Russian gifts and souvenirs

Directions: Just across the road from Izmailovsky Park Metro Station, the hotel is 6 stops from Red Square and the center of the city.

Russian Style

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 23, 2004

Big complex of 4 buildings russian style. Can find nice rooms and even s-h-i-t-t-y rooms but they don't tell you before. They accept groups. In Gamma-Delta the personnel I've found is not very kind, few speak english. It's cheap. Russian citizens pay more that foreigners

Unique Quality: Unique quality of the Izmailovo-Gamma hotel is that they are able to bother you in your room at 10 a.m. because they have to put a picture on the wall. Where's the hospitality? Guys I tell you: you have to learn to treat customers if you wanna make money. Of course I won't go there anymore.

Directions: The disctrict looks bad. Nice that you can go to walk in Izmailovsky park and have 24 hour shops near the hotel. Very close to Metro Izmailovsky Park.

Izmailovo Beta

by written on August 25, 2002

Our cheapest hotel in Moscow but by no means the worst ! We use the Izmailovo for our three star tour programme and have virtually no complaints about this hotel. It is basic but rooms are clean and tidy and service is better than in many hotels and all rooms have private facilite.
Rooms: 1972
Floors: 30

Unique Quality: The hotel is located directly next to a metro Station where trains will whisk you in twenty minutes to Red Square, the Kremlin and all the other fascinating places of interest in Moscow. The Hotel is also located directly next to the best Weekend Market for Tourists in all of Russia where you will be able to get your souvenirs from the country. The Vernisage as it is known operates on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year (wrap up in the Winter!) and prices are excellent in comparison to other tourist venues in Moscow.

Directions: Location: Airport 'Sheremetyevo-2' (SVO) - 19 ml/30 km South-East.
Airport 'Vnukovo' (VKO) - 22 ml/35 km North-East.
Airport 'Domodedovo' (DME) - 26 ml/42 km North.
