Moscow Metropol Review
I stayed in the Moscow Metropol for two weeks in Sept. 2008.
Bad: The Internet access is terrible. It's available only in the smoke-filled lobby/bar area at $40/day. There are no desks and power receptacles in smoky lobby. The hotel has an open sewer line that you smell in the parking lot at the unflattering entrance. The rooms are charming but the bed and pillows leave much to be desired. The staff is unfriendly and doesn't know how to smile. Good: It's adjacent to the Kremlin. The Concierge has all the connections for tickets/tours. Easy Metro access with lots of restaurants in the area.
The hotel has history but the over priced amenities will mean my second visit will be at the Hyatt/Hilton/etc.
Unique Quality: Some decent antique decorations.

For the severely well-heeled
For the ultimate luxury when in Moscow, I'd say you'd be hard pushed to beat the Metropol. Its prohibitive prices meant that it was not an option for me, but I was able to enjoy the hotel bar during my stay in Moscow - comfortable leather chairs and a relaxed ambience. Friends on business have said that they have had a great experience when staying here.
Unique Quality: The building is something to be seen - being recently refurbished having been built in 1905. You could stay in one of Stalin's Seven Sisters for the experience and the views, but for elegance and grandeur you'll struggle to beat the Art Deco Metropol. It might seem somewhat over the top in certain respects, but the hotel is impressive. If you can't stay there at least sneak in to admire the lobby and enjoy a drink at the bar - at a price admittedly!
Directions: Just round the corner from the Bolshoi
Art Nouveau splendour
With its central location right by Revolution Square, elegant facilities, big comfortable rooms and professional service, the Hotel Metropol earns the right to consider itself Moscow's premier hotel. Whilst it certainly isn't a cheap option (what in Moscow is?) if your budget runs to it you will be staying in a part of Moscow's history, and that combined with all the hotel has to offer in the way of comfort and style, makes it a great base for your time in Moscow.
Unique Quality: Built in 1905 the hotel is the epitome of the grandeur of pre-Revolutionary Moscow. Everyone who was, or is, anyone, has stayed here, and the banks of photos on the upper lobby floors of famous guests range from Lenin to Elton John with a phalanx of royalty and political leaders, film stars and astronauts - a cavalcade of the 20th century . The beautiful, glass-roofed restaurant is a tourist attraction in its own right - eating breakfast under its chandeliers to the sound of a harp is a great way to start the day.
Directions: Right next to the Bolshoi and less than 5 minute's walk from Red Square.
One of Moscow's Oldest Hotels
I know it does not look like one on the outside, but it is still one of the best hotels in Moscow. It was there before the great hotel chains arrived, and it was there before the upheavals of the year 1917.
Unique Quality: The sheer luxury comes as a surprise.
Luxery for a night
After a month of the Moscow State Dorms and traveling through homestays I splurged and spent a night in the Metropol. It is truely luxerious. Great rooms, Sauna and pool downstairs, Excelent Breakfast and Sunday Kremlin tours included. Extremely helpful concierge.
Unique Quality: Expensive but worth it for a night
Directions: Across from the Bolshoi Theater

There are no buildings in Moscow to match the Metropol Hotel with its abundance of sculptural and mosaic ornaments, which was built in the late 19th century. The centre piece of the facade overlooking Teatralnaya Ploschad is taken by the mosaic panel, 'Princess Gryoza' (Princess of Dream) created on the basis of Vrubel's famous painting.
Located downtown across the road from the Bolshoi Theatre. Only 5 minutes from Red Square and the main shopping area.
