The interior of this small and refined hotel is art-nouveau opulence. Enchanting details include a selection of chandeliers and graceful murals. Ted Turner, Luciano Pavarotti and Richard Gere have all stayed here. It is an ideal spot for those needing to be near all the business, political and sightseeing landmarks but who do not want to deal with Moscow's many larger hotel options.
Although more for business than pleasure, this posh 34-storey hotel is also well-suited for modern luxury living. Located in the oldest part of Moscow, guests will gasp at panoramic views of old and new Moscow, while relaxing in the hotel's decadent rooms with every possible amenity at hand. The staff is courteous and the service, prompt and discreet. Two restaurants cater to different tastes here, while the fitness center and swimming pool exude a sense of extravagance. Truly a hotel fit for a king, for the prices are as high as the airs of the patrons.
