John from the United States

Marshal Hotel was excellent- very good location-close to everything but quiet neighborhood so you can really relax.
Your customer service is outstanding. Keep up the good job!
Eliza from Poland

I wanted to thank you for your willingness to fulfill my every request. I want to first say that Derbishky Hotel is fantastic. It was my first trip to a foreign country and I would like to say that the warm welcome and patience due to my lack of ability to speak Russian has been remarkable. People who I met at the time when I was in Russia were very friendly. Unfortunately, my stay was short, for various reasons. I can only say thank you warmly, because even though I was far away, I felt as if I was at home. I also sent this e-mail the hotel. If for some reason they don't receive it, please let them know that I can only speak well of my short stay. Thanks, thanks, thanks infinitely. I will certainly come back shortly.
