Moscow: Milan Hotel Review

Our travel agent put us up in Milan Hotel when we were touring Moscow. This hotel is relatively new and the facilities available are commendable. However, it is located in a non-happening area, almost devoid of commercial or cultural activities in the immediate vicinity.
Milan Hotel has 297 rooms. It offers free parking, free airport shuttle and free WiFi to its guests.
This hotel is about 18km to Red Square (Moscow City centre) but it usually takes more than an hour to get to the city by bus as one stretch of road is often jammed up.
Even though Milan Hotel is not near the city centre, Domededovskaya Metro is just a 10-15 min walk away. Hotel guests without own transport will find this a blessing to get around Moscow. There are a few attractions like Tsaritsino Park and several museums within a 2-10 km radius around the hotel.
Front desk staffs are helpful and they speak English while staffs from other department do not appear to do so.
The hotel has a contemporary setting. I especially like the lobby and lounge area as it is well appointed. The banisters, pillars, and ceiling lamps are charming and the stairs leading to the first floor looks elegant. 

The lobby lounge is furnished with ample sofas. There are a few hotel shops adjacent to the lounge.
Standard Twin Room
We stayed in 'Standard Twin Room' which measures 25 sq meters. 
The furnishing is simple but the facilities available are adequate for a very comfortable stay. There are ample power points, a mini-bar, a safety box, a flat-screened TV and enough space for us to open two big luggage. Bottled water and WiFi are complimentary. 
The washroom is equipped with a hair dryer, a heated shower, and towels but toiletries provided are just shampoo and body wash.

Hotel Facilities
Hotel facilities include a fitness centre and four F&B outlets. There is no swimming pool.
The main restaurant is Tiberio Restaurant which has quite a big seating capacity. This is the restaurant where buffet breakfast is served every morning.
The hallway into Tiberio is lined with stained glass walls.
The Piano Bar, tucked away at the corner of the lobby floor offers not only cocktails and alcoholic drinks but snacks, desserts and coffee for take-aways in the morning.
This is a great area to hangout.

Visconti Restaurant offers European food in a cozy ambiance.

Review Of Buffet Breakfast 
At Tiberio Restaurant
There is a good spread of breakfast cuisines but the menu remains the same each morning during our stay there.

There is a good selection of coffee, a variety of tea and three types of fruit juices to choose from.
The food is quite good but if you eat the same thing four or five days in a row, it can get a little boring too.
Overall, my stay in Milan Hotel is pleasant and quite memorable.
