    High End, Poor Location

    by

    The Radisson Royal Hotel is a 5-star hotel. There isn't much walking distance to the hotel and it is a long 15 minute walk to the Metro in the winter. Taxis are always waiting in the hotel parking lot but the hotel takes a portion of the fare passing on the fee to the customer.

    Unique Quality: Historical property, Largest swimming pool in Moscow.

    This is the biggest hotel I have ever stayed at! Unlike Lotte Moscow, the Radisson Royal doesn't seem empty and lifeless, and the rooms are done with taste and style. However, there are some thigs that don't allow this hotel to be a 5 star. At check in, my booking for some reason couldn't be found in the computer, and the worst thing ever happened to me in a hotel - my credit card was charged twice!!! And I still haven't received the reimbursement, and the amount for my entire stay isn't small. Anyway, I can say I am satisfied, because the hotel is beautiful and the location was convenient for me (far from the attrations, but close to my office).

    Directions: Very noisy area. Can't be reached on foot or by metro - only taxi.

HOTEL UKRAINA. High big...

by ANDYRUS

HOTEL UKRAINA. High big building. Quiet, thick walls. 40-150$ per room.
Very nice location- ( near White House and Moscow River)
- on Kutusovskiy prospect (ave.)-the widest street with good shoping.

Shop early(via internet if possible)

by jkbarbe about Ukraina

The Hotel Ukraina offers luxurious acommodations in a Stalinist Hotel. Stalin may have been a ruthless dictator, but the buildings of his era were built to compete with the grand hotels of that age. The Hotel Ukraina is a prime example. Booked on-line, I was able to stay at this hotel near the center of Moscow for only about $130. The going rate for similarly rated hotels in Moscow was about $240. The Hotel Ukraina has many of the amenities that are seriously lacking the the Kruschev era hotels. With the modernization of the Russian Federation, many of the newly built and poor quality hotels are being torn down and replaced. But the Hotel Ukraina is a landmark. Warm wooden floors, twelve foot sculptured ceiling, original oil paintings. The rate included an enormous and elaborate breakfast. The upper floors offer great views of the Moscow River and the small landscaped park between the hotel and the river. The metro station is only a short walk away, through a beautifully manicured kids park with fountains, where mothers sit in the afternoon sun watching their children play. The Arbat is only a few minutes away.

Hotel Ukraina

by yellowstar about Hotel Ukraina

I paid one price for flight, hotel, breakfast, lunch that's why I cannot tell you the exact price of the hotel. Since the hole trip wasn't expensive, I cannot imagine that the hotel is very expensive either. It is located in a huge buildung with about 30 floors. Rooms are well equipped, but not luxurious. You will sleep well at night, but I wouldn't recommend eating or having a coffee there. Prices are much too high in this hotel. If you are a smoker, get your cigarettes from a supermarket around the corner. Everything is 20% the price you would have to pay in the hotel.
Every room has its own safe and therefore you feel secure with all your valuables.
The prices of a room are ok for Moscow.

hotel ukraina

by babeteaser about hotel ukraina

hasn't changed since it was buitl in 1957. it is one of those typical stalinistic buildings with a red star on top. viva USSR!

Hotel Ukraina

by ratherton

The hotel was built in the 1950s and is a very impressive structure. It is across the Moscow River from the Whitehouse. I've stayed here on 2 seperate occasions and haven't been disappointed. The rooms aren't modern but some are in the process of being renovated.

It's just across the river from the Novay Arbat which leads from the Whitehouse straight to the Kremlin (3km). The hotel was opened in 1957 and is one of the 7 sister hotels dotted around Moscow built during the Stalin era. There are over 1,000 rooms available holding a maximum of 1630 guests.

Inside, there is pretty much everything you will need including bar, restaurants, money exchange and shops. Check their website for full details.

Ukraina Hotel

by Ujamaflip about Ukraina

The Ukraina hotel is a marvelous building, one of the "Seven Sisters" with their unique style dominating Moscow's skyline. The hotel interior is decorated in the traditional communist style from its era, and whilst it may not match up to other modern hotels, it provides a nice experience you may expect from Moscow. The staff, whilst generally friendly, are not particularly helpful, and won`t even call a taxi for you. Great views from the observation deck on the 28th floor, but you have to pay 100Rubles to get there. The hotel is one of the seven sisters, and has a very unique architecture. Sean Connery stayed in this hotel in the film "The Russian House".

good location, great value

by MrBill about Ukraina

Built in the 1950's by Uncle Stalin the Hotel Ukraina is one of the Seven Sisters that dot Moscow's skyline. It is a very unique architectural style. Only one building has been built in the same style.

In any case, I always try to book the Hotel Ukraina first because it has a good location, near Novy Arbat street and within a short taxi ride of the Kremlin and downtown. Some have suggested you can walk it, but my experience was that it took a good 30-45 minutes. Not unreasonable, but not the 15-minutes suggested by others. It is located about a 15-minute walk from Kievskaya Metro station, which connects you to the rest of Moscow.

The other advantage of the Hotel Ukraina is that it is moderately priced. A normal room costs between $80 and $100 including breakfast. The breakfast is plentiful, but not lavish. This compares to $150-250 a night for some of the business hotels. The hotel has seen better days and it is only now being slowly renovated to meet Moscow's hotel room shortage.

The walls in the rooms are paper thin, so you might like to be quiet when you are practicing the horizontal hoola while in town. Or you might like to lean back and enjoy the symphony your neighbors are composing.

Also, there sure seems to be a lot of pretty, young secretaries that stay down in the lobby late in the evening? Maybe one of them will join you for a drink to help you wile away your time and money?

The taxis out front of the hotel are in general more expensive than you can find on Kutuzovsky Prospekt. There is also a bus that runs along Kutuzovksy in the direction of Noviy Arbat and the downtown.

"The highest hotel in Russia"

by Robert_Hun about Ukraina

The 30-story (206 meters) high Ukraina hotel is said to be the highest hotel in Russia
It's a combination of Stalinist architecture and Renaissance finery.
It's really huge: it has almost 900 rooms, 5 restaurants incl. a large hall where hundreds of guests have breakfast in the morning

See more pix in my Travelogue. It has a bar and terrace at the top which provides great panoramic views day and night.

Apartments

by madsy

Hi,
I am going to Moscow this summer. We are planning on renting an apartment either from Windows on Nevsky (in Moscow and St Petersburg) or from "Moscow Rick". Does anyone have any experience with either company. It is hard to know which is more reliable and we have never been to Russia before and only I barely know a little Russian, so it is likely we will need a little more help than many tourists once we are there.

Thanks,
Madsy

RE: Apartments

by karena1

I just returned from a trip to Moscow and St Petersburg, staying at Moscow Rick's apartments, as well as the Hotel Ukraina (Moscow) and the Hotel St Petersburg. For two people, we paid $104 per night, including breakfast at the Ukraina. It was lovely. We paid $135 per night for a very squalid (by American standards) apartment, with a poorly equipped kitchen, a clogged sink, and lots of dust bunnies. If you want the apartment experience, or Moscow Rick's apartments are in your ideal location, go for it. But if you do, beware of the exhorbitant rates for transfers, internet access, cell phones, etc. Rick charged us $40 per person for the visa invitation (free at the Ukraina), $40 each for visa registration upon arrival (free at the Ukraina), and asked $15 each for transfer to the Leningradsky train station (we declined, and got a taxi from the apartment to the station for ~$7 for two).

In St Petersburg, Moscow Rick had a link to apartments from "Oksana" which my friends found to be quite nice. I don't know what they paid, but they were close to Nevsky Prospect and the Moskovskay Vokzal. I'd also recommend the Moskva Hotel (on Nevsky Prospect, very close to the Hermitage) who seem to have really good rates, and a great location.

RE: RE: Apartments

Thanks for you advice. We already went with Gotorussia/Windows on Nevsky for apartments. Hopefully it will owrk out ok. There are three of us (my mom, her student, and me) so we thought the apartment situation might be better. Hopefully it won't be too grubby.
