Holiday Inn Moscow – Tagansky Review

The Holiday Inn Moscow – Tagansky is located just south of the rather hip Tagansky neighborhood in southeast Moscow. The location isn’t great – you will have to walk at least 20 minutes to get to some decent restaurants and it’s an Uber ride wherever else you go in Moscow.

The hotel is pretty new but already went through a name change from Holiday Inn Simonovsky. Check-in was friendly, with Russian efficiency and attention to rules; every rule is followed, silly or not.

My Platinum status was recognized and I got a bigger room on the quieter side of the building. The room was a bit odd in design; the furniture somehow did not fit the room size.

I felt it was always too cold and adjusting the heater temperature did not help much. Plus the desk lamp and water heater were both broken, though engineering had no trouble fixing both in 15 minutes.

The Internet was initially fast at 4 Mbit (there is no Premium Internet here) but slowed down considerably at night with just about 0.5 Mbit. I mentioned the issue to the front desk and they actually seemed concerned about it and wanted to fix it on night two, which they did – to my surprise.

I asked the front desk to make a reservation at Bunker 42 for me and they did that without hesitation or drama.

There was no breakfast included in my booking, so I decided to drive off to coffee shops instead, as there wasn’t any inspiring breakfast cuisine nearby.

All in all, this hotel is a great discount option at $100, though 20,000 IHG Rewards points is a rather expensive option. It gets the job done, but does not really offer anything to make your stay special.

You can book the Holiday Inn Moscow – Tagansky here.

3.5 / 5 stars
