We stayed there for 4 nights, we rent a room for 3 persons by internet. The room was a joke, a sofa bed in bad condition for 2 people and a mattress, not a bed, in the floor. You can imagine that 3 people there would be really uncomfortable. The room was called 'dacha' that in russian means countryside or...

The Basilica is a great hotel for the price. It is located relitivly close by the китай город station and not more than four miles and a half from red square. The room was good for the price and I would definitely recommend it. It was also near a grocery store which was very helpful especially given that it is...

My friend and I stayed here for a whole week on our first visit to Moscow from the UK. Staff were helpful and friendly, Free Hot Tea, Free Wifi and Clean Rooms. Will definately stay here again! Best Price in Moscow for location, fairly central and to all main tourist sights including Red Square. 5 Stars!

Before arriving I was slightly doubtful because of the bad reviews Basilica Hotel had gotten, but what do you know: my expectations were met and exceeded. I had some difficulties to find the place, but locals helped (I was on the wrong side of the big street). The location is otherwise good, 10 minutes walk to Kitay Gorod metro, 20...

Room 11 was terrible: no radiator in winter, no hot shower and a broken bed. The biggest problem is the reception girls: they are absolutely rude and no interested to make the staying comfortable at all. Check-in was late even when we asked for an early check-in and the check-out was a problem again as "I woke up a reception...

Located in the heart of Moscow, 10min walking to Red Square and the main sights of the city, is a simple hostel, but very clean and organized, the price is excellent for the location of the hostel in moscow and have a supermarket 24h very close.

What shines out about the Basilica Hotel is the fantastic customer service of all the staff - particularly 'Maria' who I bombarded with emails before we even went ! Maria arranged us a shuttle taxi there and back . The handsome taxi driver met us outside arrivals with a huge board and was very polite on both in and out...
