My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights for a city break, and he stayed on for a further 3 nights with a colleague on business. We selected the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and others. It is very reasonably priced for Moscow and in a fairly central location. In summary, we found that it met all our requirements and we would stay again if we went back to Moscow on business.
The hotel is located just 3 stops/10 mins on the Metro on (Green) Line 2 from the stop you require for Red Square. It is also just one stop from Paveletsky Metro/station where the Aeroexpress train from Domodedovo arrives. And one stop the other direction gets you to Kolomenskoe Park, which was a favourite summer residence of the Tsars. We never waited more than 2 minutes for a Metro train in 4 days!
The hotel is, quite literally, right next to the Metro exit. Reception is 24 hrs and staff all spoke decent English and were helpful. There is a 24/7 security guard and barriers at the entrance to lift lobby. You also need to swipe your room keycard on exiting the lift to access your floor. There is CCTV on the landings. One plus was the free wi-fi connection which we found to work very well. You are supplied with log-in details on check in which expires after 24hrs. You simply call Reception for another code when needed. Your can also hire a laptop from Reception and photocopy documents etc. There is no safe in the room, but you can put things in a safe at Reception for 50roubles a day which is about ?1.
Breakfast is a staid continental affair which is the same every day - fruit, museli, yoghurt, juice, tea/coffee, strange sausages, potatoes(!), salad, cheese, bread rolls and a DIY toaster. They did have mini pain au chocolate available every day though so I survived!

We stayed here at the start and finish of our Russia trip. The hotel is located on the Metro far enough out of town to offer good value but not too far that the travelling time makes it a chore. The staff spoke good English and were more than happy to help. In mid summer the room could be a little too hot but in June it was no problems at all.
The room was very clean, beds comfortable and also quiet as it is a residential area. It seemed to be run to the same or higher standard that you would normally expect from the upmarket chains. Breakfast was good by Russian standards and plenty of staff are on hand to assist. It also had a good bathroom and a couple of English news channels on the television.
We would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Moscow who wanted to save their money for the rest of what can be an expensive city but still stay in quality accomodation.

This hotel is situated in the north-east of Moscow. For Moscow on a quiet area. The employees are almost 'unrussian' friendly. Check in in a few minutes. The rooms are not to big but clean. The breakfast is good with enough variation. Next to the hotel is a huge shopping mall where you can buy everything to survive (food, cloth, pharmacy etc etc). There is even an McD and there are a few other restaurants. There is a shuttle that can bring you to the metro but you can do it by foot as well.

Rooms were nice and clean, service excellent. We needed a visa support in a short time and it was without problems. The only small problem was the connection to the underground, but the station VDNCH is reachable by trolley or buses or free hotel transport in about 20 minutes.

I was pleased by this hotel cause it is clean, with large rooms, with all comodities needed. Free WiFi in the room, big wardrobe, free Tea and Coffee. The Metro station is in 10 min walking & the price is great for Moscow. Take the room with breakfast cause it's very good and it will be more expensive to eat in the city (fair center or airport, or city centre).

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. A reasonable price for Moscow. The room was very nice, big, comfortable and clean. Bathroom also ok and very clean. Breakfast is bufet and it is nice too. The girls at the reception are nice and speak English quite well. The only low point about this hotel is the wifi connection as it does not work properly ( very slow connection at all times).
The closest metro station is at 10 minutes walking. The train takes about 15 minutes to the center. Not bad considering the city you are staying.
I do recommend this hotel!!

I just got back from Moscow. Maxima Irbis is really good hotel. The Metro station Vladykino is located 10 minutes away by foot and it takes you about 20 minutes into Tverskay st or Red Square . But that is ok, because the hotels in the centre are more expensive. Rooms, lobby and restaurant just has been renovated. Everything is nice and clean. Reception stuff are very friendly and helped me with excursions and concert ticket . Turkish hammam is very nice.

A big international style hotel, the same as you would find anywhere in the world, it did not feel Russian. I arrived very early on my check in day and my room was ready so I could go straight to it. If you want breakfast on your arrival day, this is possible - you have to pay in cash (only roubles accepted) in the restaurant. The breakfast is a large buffet (international style). There is a restaurant in the hotel for evening meals which I found very noisy (they had some kind of disco/ loud music on in the restaurant) and there is a minimum charge in the evenings which I recall as being fairly high.

Have visited Moscow many times since the Intourist Hotel days next to the National Hotel beginning in December 1984 and have also stayed in the Cosmos and the Renaissance Moscow Hotel over the years when in the city on business. Selected the Panorama because of the location with easy access by Metro to the entire city and departure via train to DME. My next stay in Moscow will be the Panorama if rooms are available. An excellent hotel, fairly priced and staffed with excellent people. Retail stores, banks, restaurants and small shops surrounding the hotel enhance the experience of a stay.
