Traveling on business to Moscow, I booked for the first time the StandArt Hotel. I was encouraged by the positive references I had found on specialised websites. Indeed expectations were fully met. A brand new concept of art hotel, with very nice and attentive staff as well as international comforts. Rooms are spacious, modern and well equipped. Breakfast room is also awesome with a nice selection of Russian and international cuisine. Special mention goes to Ilya of front desk for being so good and accurate. Indeed StandArt is a place where to go back.
Nice modern hotel with great location. Rooms are small, but modern and comfortable with large bathroom. Gym is very new and excellent equipment. Restaurant is good but portions are very small for the price. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The lobby is the main drawback as the hotel does not really have a ground floor and the restaurant and bar are upstairs above shops. I would stay here again at the right price. Location is great but hotel is not as nice as Intercontinental and some other nearby options.
Loved this hotel, great location to Red Square and the shopping district. Rooms are excellent, you can’t hear any noises from other rooms. It had everything you needed from internet, coffee making facilities and fresh bottled water. Beds really comfortable, great powerful rain shower. We used the gym it’s small but has views out onto the city, it has a treadmill, bike and cross trainer, some weights and a yoga/stretching studio. All staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. I’d definitely recommend this hotel.
I just came back from Moscow and stayed in this hotel for 8 nights. The location cannot be better. 15 min walk to Red Square, less than 1 min to a metro station (3 lines) and underground souvenir market. A lot of attractions and restaurants are within short walking distance. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Rooms are decent size and beds are very comfortable. Being in the very center and looking on to a busy street, the rooms were very quiet. Daily maid service was impeccable. Included a lot of travel needs supplied every day. Will DEFINITELY stsy again when visit Moscow again. Highly recommend!
Firstly the good points....friendly and helpful lobby and reception staff. Large room. Good location for Red Square and Cafe Pushkin. Now the disappointing parts.....lobby area looks like a 2 star hotel. The staff uniforms look very downmarket, the light switches in the rooms are too complicated, if you need glasses, you’ll need them every time you want to turn a light on or off. The bathroom, although large, only has an over bath shower. A ‘city view’ room is not actually a view into the city, but of Pushkin Square. The service in the bar and at breakfast is excruciatingly slow, even though there was hardly anyone else in there. I finally need to say about our last evening, 26th Nov, when we went to the bar for a drink before going out for our meal. There was a group of older Italian ‘gentleman’ in there who were entertaining a ‘lady’ (she obviously wasn’t Italian as they were speaking English with her). While we were waiting 20 minutes for our one beer and one cocktail, I noticed one of the ‘gentleman’ and the ‘lady’ leave the bar area, I just assumed they were going to their rooms. When we were about to leave I went to use the ladies, on the way I noticed that there were no rooms on that floor and in fact the only doors were the toilets. I went into the ladies, turned the cubicle light on and locked the door, only then did the noises begin from the other cubicle. Yes, that’s right, that’s where they had gone and were having very loud sex!!!! Classy! Now I know that the hotel can’t be held totally responsible for their guests behaviour, but, I’m pretty sure all the staff must have known what was going on and, not only did they not call security, but they allowed me to walk into a very compromising situation! Definitely not a 5 star establishment!…
