Izmailovo Vega Hotel Moscow Reviews
Affordable piece of Soviet style hospitality May 18, 2008
The Izmailovo Vega hotel is situated in the complex built for the 1980 olympics. The four conrete tower blocks that were used to house the participants and press have now been converted into four near-identical hotels, (Alpha, Beta, Vega and Gamma) and all predominately cater for group tours. The size of the hotel and proximity to the excellent Moscow Metro make this hotel an affordable option for what is now officially the most expensive city in the world.
The hotel is built in typical Soviet style architecture complete with '1984'-style marble corridors and starways. The rooms range from spartan rooms that clearly have not been refurbished since the 1980 Olympics, to luxury VIP suites.
The hotel serves a sumptuous breakfast in the morning, complete with KGB-style welcome and live keyboard muzak.
Other amenities include an internet cafe, a coffee shop, a pub, several restaurants, a night club and a hairdresser.
Close by is the huge Izmailovsky souvenir market, as well as several supermarkets and restaurants.
The city center is an acceptable 20 minutes by metro.
