Hotels in Moscow are among the most expensive in the world. A stay in an average Western-style hotel in Moscow will run between $150-200 per night. The Izmailovo hotels are an excellent alternative. The complex consists of 5 very large hotels originally built for the 1980 Olympic Games. Now, they represent a good quality of hotel at a reasonable price. A room at the Izmailovo Vega will cost between $60-80 per night.
One reason for the lower prices is that the Izmailovo hotels are a bit far from the city center. However, the hotels are only one block from the Partizanskaya Metro station, making any part of the city a quick metro ride away. The ride into the city center will take about 20 minutes.
The room that we stayed in was of adequate size and comfortable. It included a small mini-fridge, which was very nice. A few downsides-- there were no individual temperature controls in the room. The first night we stayed there was a bit cool, but the rest of the stay was comfortable. Also, don't expect a large-screen TV. However, the was a good selection of channels.
Unique Quality: This hotel is extremely popular with tour groups, so you'll see many tourists here from all over the world.
The hotel itself offers a wide variety of amenities and services. There are a number of different restaurants. We made use of the breakfast buffet on a few different mornings. Some of the room rates include a free breakfast. If it's not included in your room rate, then the cost as of August 2009 was 400 rubles. Again, not the greatest breakfast buffet I've ever been too..... but adequate for the price. The hotel also has a few bars, many different shops and kiosks, an internet cafe, and a small coffee shop.
Bottom line-- if you want to be pampered (and can afford it) then there are a wide selection of hotels in Moscow that will better fit your needs. If you would rather have an adequate place to stay while saving quite a bit of money, then the Izmailovo hotels would be a good choice for you.
Directions: One block from the Partizanskaya Metro Station. Directly outside of Izmailovsky Park and the Vernasage Souvenir Market.
Well It's average. The staff could come across as beigna bit rude, but it wasn't too bad.
The rooms were basic and functional.
Unique Quality: Very close to the Metro station, but the best part about this hotel was it's proximity to the Izmailovo Markets. The shopping here was amazing, and we bought so many things at great prices. The cheapest prices in Moscow
