Wondering about our ratings? Here you go...
As two keen travelers ourselves, we know that reviews are always opinion, but ratings need to be exact. So we've compiled the very latest data from TripAdvisor.com and Booking.com to create our percentage guide of exactly how many travelers rate the hotel as excellent or very good. Additionally we've asked a first-hand opinion from all our previous customers and foreign friends who have slept there, and we even went the extra mile by visiting some of these Russian hotels personally.
During the review and rate process we looked at each hotel and took into account four key factors: if the hotel is good value for money; if the staff are friendly and helpful; if the hotel is in a good location; and if the hotel rooms are comfortable, quiet and of course clean. In short we've tried to think of the sorts of things anyone, including ourselves, would look for when choosing a hotel room. ☺
We hope this guide will help to find a hotel you like.
