Hotel Moskva

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 17, 2003

Our room faced north, with a view of the Duma, House of Unions and Bolshoi Theatre. There was quite a bit of walking involved in getting to it (very long hallways), but it was comfortable, clean and even allowed up to hear Paul McCartney's concert in Red Square, on the other side of the building.

Its location was simply unbeatable and I had looked forward to staying there again, on a future visit, but my intuition tells me the newly built replacement will most likely be out of my price range.

Unique Quality: Most of the guidebooks we read mentioned prostitutes and mafia as potential "complaints" about the hotel, but we never saw anything that made us the least bit uncomfortable.

Refurnished rooms were simple and perfectly adequate for our needs. The bathroom was very nice and the price range quite good for Moscow ($100 US per night).

Directions: 2 minutes from Red Square and the Kremlin.

A Treasure Lost. . .

NOTE: Sadly, I have since learned that the Hotel Moskva was slated for destruction shortly after we left in May 2003. Despite the hotel's historical status, it was decided that the expense and added work of repairing the aging building was too much. The plan is to rebuild a hotel in the same spot, but price/service/amenities will likely be quite different.

Unique Quality: This huge hotel is (in)famous for its asymmetrical facade. Legend has it that, in 1931, the architect showed Stalin two different designs, Stalin nodded his approval to them both, and the designed was too scared to probe for which one was the choice. Rather than pursue the issue, he combined the two designs into the current form.

The side facing Manezhnaya Ploshchad has fifteen stories and a huge portico, the side facing Okhotniy Ryad has ten stories and two small towers.

Directions: 2 minutes from Red Square & the Kremlin.

Hotel Moskva is in a superb location (opposite Red Square). The 3 star hotel was built under orders from Stalin and has hosted many famous guests.
The staff are quite helpful, most speaking good English. I would avoid the left luggage though, they charge 15 euros!!
Note this was demolished in 2005!
