When I was in Moscow I stayed at the hotel Tsentralnaya. It is on Tverskaya street about a ten minute walk from Red Square. It is a no- frills, Soviet style hotel with common toilets and showers, but it's in a great location. And it only cost 800 rubles a night for a single room. However, the reservation was made by a Russian and they may try to screw with foreigners who call or wander in off the street. As far as I know they don't have a website. You could probably contact a Russian tour agency for info.

Do they still have a dual pricing system for hotel rooms ? In the old days in the USSR and other states in the "bloc" there was one price for citizens and another for non-citizens. Residents were usually, but not always, allowed to pay the "citizen" rate.

Dear Albulbul:

As far as I know, there is no dual pricing system in Russia today. Wink

I did experience this highly unpleasant phenomenon in Romania 8 years ago, but I haven't encountered it here in Russia during the 2 years I've been here.

If you don't speak Russian well enough, you might get 'ripped off' a little at the big outdoor markets, where prices are not always clearly marked ... but that could happen anywhere.

ItsOnlyMe,
