I stayed at THE RUSSIA HOTEL: I stayed at THE RUSSIA HOTEL

The rooms ran us about $100 USD per night for a double room. Ask for a renovated room (new bathrooms)

Hotel Russia is one of the worlds largest hotels. It can hold up to 4500 people.
This place had everything you needed. A post office, dry cleaners, spa, casinos, a theater, many restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

I slept on a fold-out couch in the kitchen. I thought it was great having a room to myself. I usually kept the window cracked at night which dropped the temperature of the kitchen - it was October. However, I slept great!

My home for two years was an apartment on the second floor of this building, which is typical Khruschev-era housing ('Khrushebi').

Don't expect something special, except spending a lot of money for little and no so pleasant rooms. I was in MINSK hotel, the only positive element was that it's in the center of Moscow. ................................. Don't forget your hotel registration card, the hotel security cheks it when you come back.................................................... You are planning a trip in Moscow, you need an hotel, make your choice ! : HOTELS IN MOSCOW '

It is really difficult to find a good hotel for a reasonable price in the center part of Moscow.
I stayed in Moscow Hotel ('Moskva') in the very center. The price was around 80 USD for a single room that time and although I had a booking for the room in the 'renovated' part, they put me into the non-renovated part for the first night. I've heard that now prices are lower right now - I was staying there before the crisis.

It is a huge building, so be prepared that you will be walk a lot inside. There is no typical reception - only a registration desk and then you can obtain your key on the floor where your room is.

Heaven and Hell all in one day!

Heaven and Hell...in one day.
by Michael_D

PETER ASSURED ME he had a lady that he stayed with EVERY TIME HE VISITED MOSCOW! COOL huh? Well 18 hours, 2 metros and 20 slammed doors later we had still not located HIS FRIEND that he STAYED WITH ALL THE TIME. IF you are keeping score that is 3 missed trains, $50 saved by not getting a visa, possible jail time if caught, 10 hotels I couldnt check into and an entire day wasted searching for a friend Peter ALWAYS stayed with we never did find.

I was spent physically and emmotionally. It was 38 degrees. Hotels from The Rossia to Izmailova had sent me packing and I just ate my last can of Chef-Boyardee beefaroni. Its midnight...we are shivering in Red square and Im worn out/cold/depressed.

THEN I remember a phone number and address a classmate Paul from grad school at Rutgers sent me. It seems a mutual friend that was at Cornell when I was there happened to be the head of AFL-CIO trade union education programs in Moscow. I called him, got chastised for not calling sooner and(drum roll) was offered a 4 room apartment with a view of the Kremlin.....one of four earmarked for visiting dignitaries...the price?? Free...libre...gratis!!!. ZIP...well actually cost me dinner at Gorbys Pizza Hut. What a deal! If you looked out the window...you could see the gold domes of the Kremlin.

Thus started my oddessy ...and a pattern I called "heaven 'n' hell" because more often than not, between the long lines and red tape, you went through a bit of each every day in Russia.

Thank you Barb and Rudy..you made my trip a gem!

I stayed at the Ismailovo Delta, which was built for the 1980 Olympics. It was OK, although the security was a pain in the A**.
It was $52 a night

Typical tourist trap. Things were 3 times as much in the hotel than the little kiosks by the metro which is about a 5 minute walk from hotel. Rooms were OK if you go 1st class which ran me about $52 a day. Kind of far from the center of town

Local citizens will offer rooms at what seem like bargain prices. Whereas most are honest, the usual precautions apply. Additionally, understand exactly the location of the proffered room and whether it is expected you will be sharing and if so, what you will share.

once in lipetzk I went to my hotel... the best in lipetzk I was told. I also had a colour TV set in my room... quite old but still working... ok let see some russian television... I could not believe! the first thing I saw was a serial... Santa barbara... and I begun to understand... gorbaciov was doing everything slowly.... the only way you can manage such a transition... in that period they had the worst TV examples, they could find everything in theyr shops but they could't buy it! A pair of reebock was about two month of a common wage... of course people was upset! As my interpreter told me: some years ago at least we knew what we was... now we know nothing and have nothing.... I do hope things has changed.
