A VAST HOTEL

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 3, 2011

Hotel Cosmos is situated on Prospect Mira; It was built for the 1980 Olympics in Moscow to hold the competitors and was opened 18th July 1979.
It was built by a team of French and Russian architects led by French building firm Sefri co.

The hotel is the biggest I have ever stayed in with a dozen shops, ten restaurants, a large bar, swimming pool, fitness centre and concert hall.
It also has a currency exchange, pharmacy and hairdressers.

The statute standing tall outside the main entrance to the hotel is former French prime minister Charles de Gaulle.

Opposite this vast hotel is the space explorers monument which depicts a spacecraft flying through the air.
The hotel is next to the V.V.C. All Russia exhibition centre which stands on 2,375,000 square metres, 266,000 square metres are used for indoor exhibits.
The rooms are basic but comfortable.
1,718 Standard Twin bedrooms
53 two-room Suites
6 four-room Suites
catering outlets for about 3,600 seats

Unique Quality: The rooms are basic but comfortable. Due to the planning of the hotel most of the views from the windows are amazing with the Space monument and the VVC, with its magnificent statues, just across the busy road.
There is also a supermarket and a few food stalls just outside the hotel.

Maybe even too big

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 11, 2008

As I was in a group, I ended up staying for nearly a week at the Kosmos Hotel. The first impact, after some hours of traveling by train from St.Petersburg was quite a shock, as the hall seemed something like a casinò instead of a normal hotel.

In my previous trips to Moscow I stayed at the Radissons near the Kievskaja station in 2001, and at the President Hotel in 2007. Obviously they are in different categories, and since 2001 most hotels seemed to have improved in quality.

But the Kosmos, even if quite easy to reach and near the metro, has, in my opinion, the problem of being "too big". Several times it happened that we needed to have breakfast in a different restaurant because the normal one was full of people. Most food was the same at breakfast and dinner, the hall seemed a busy railway station at all times, and it was impossible to find a even a map of the town or the metro.

Also, the usage of Internet PCs did cost twice the price of the Moskva hotel in St.Petersburg.

Excellent Large Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 24, 2008

This is a huge hotel with excellent amenities. There are shops, bars and restaurants all within its complex.

The rooms were not huge, but a least they did have hot water in the summer. I stayed in room 1057, small twin bed room. The beds weren't all that comfy but I was only staying for one night. Neat and clean rooms, if a little dated.

Excellent all you can eat buffet breakfast. Cereals, fruit, bread, cheese. Hot bacon and eggs etc.

Unique Quality: As the night went on and the bars and clubs in the hotel got into full swing, watch out for the ladies of the night. They were all over the lobby!

Directions: Across the road from the metro VDNKh on the orange 6 line.

The hotel was really huge but I liked it. A lot of the participating countries at the Ice hockey World championships stayed at the hotel. The service was good and maybe the standard was not that great but I think we got what we paid for.

2 nights, mid October 2007. Twin room. Decent accommodation close to Metro station. Beer was £3 (GBP) in the hotel bar which was expensive but we were there for a football match so hotel increased prices.

Directions: Nothing in the area but close to Metro (50 yards away)

Thats really a very good hotel, a big one with lots of accomodations and restaurants inside of it. We satyed in Renovated Room there was a tv, big comfy bad, small fridge, lots of lights, good bathroom with lots of different towels. Room was cleaned every day!
Thats a very big hotel with lots of guests. Very good security.
The most amazing thing for me was a breakfast with lots of different and very tasty food. Really that were amazing dinners and my belly all the time was extremely happy and didn't want to leave the breakfast. U can buy souvenirs in a hotel. the prices on them are not the much higher.
A very good restaurant in the hotel is that is situated on the left from the reception. Sorry i just can't remember its name. very tasty salads and drinks.
We also were in a bar that is situated on the right from the reception. I found tasty only pelmeni with mashrooms but nothing else was tasty. And prices were high and in the end they put 10% from the order for tips in the bill.
But in general i have REALLY VERY VERY VERY good impressions from staying in this the hotel.

As I left the Cosmonauts museum towards the Cosmos Hotel, I saw a huge bronze monument rising up in front of the concave towewr with white starbursts-- I knew I would soon see Yuri gagarin, the first man in space in bigger than life bronze ...

But what-- no -- It is french President Charles de Gaulle!

Unique Quality: Large casino and night club.

Directions: Metro VDNH

Convenient Location. Relatively affordable (compared to most hotels in Moscow, which as everybody knows, are really expensive). Cosmos is right by a metro station, which makes it really convenient getting around the city.

Stayed here for a few days in Nov 2004. Avoid the Japanese restaurant, VERY poor service. Casino OK but need to "join" for $50 to enter (but then free buffet and your $50 back in chips) Hotel overall was fine, nothing outstanding, nothing really to complain about. As the title says, done the job.

big one

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 24, 2006

The hotel has been built in 1980 for the Olympic Games. The furniture is from that period. The hotel could accomodate around 3600 people. Lot of sexy bars on the lobby and lot of prostitutes. Clean enough. Lots of bodyguards are controlling the entrance. You can not enter the hotel if you do not have a hotel pass with you.

People are smiling very rarely and the Big Brother feeeling is everywhere. Otherwise the city looks safe. The subway is outstanding organized. You could reach any point in Moscow by subway and you never wait more than 45 seconds for a train.

You have lots of nice things to see in Moscow and the history is everywhere. Red square is impressive.

Excellent accommodation at a good location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 10, 2004

I stayed at the "Cosmos" in 1984 when the hotel was five years aold, as it was built for the American-boycotted Olympic Games of 1980. In that time the hotel was not very nice and charming. But due to the location I decided to stay here once more.
Cosmos is a 4 star hotel (Russian rating) and it is simply excellent. I stayed in a standard room on the 23rd floor. Nothing was lacking, electronic door locks, modern bedroom and bathroom, excellent supplies, like bathrobe etc.
Service was good and friendly and the price resonable. Hotel Cosmos can be compared to any Holiday Inn or even a Hilton hotel.

Unique Quality: Location at Prospect Mira, one of the main roads in the North of Moscow. About 200 Meters away from the nearest metro station (for those who like to use metro), comfortable, modern rooms, views of the hotel, various good restaurants, friendly staff
