Hotel - There is a wide range of hotels in
Moscow from luxury to lower cost ones in dark, grey
Soviet style buildings. Here we describe some hotels
in Moscow. Motels in Moscow are not cheap. They can
vary widely in price and quality. The simple hotels
that are found in Europe and in the states simply
don't exist yet. You will not find a Super 8 or a
Motel 6, for example. The hotels in the cheapest price
range are dark, gray, Soviet-style buildings.
