Staying in this neoclassical gem is like walking into a Russian novel — the 1913 building is a time capsule of pre-Bolshevik Russian splendor, with a fireplace in the Hermitage bar, gilded ceilings in the Savoy restaurant and marble fixtures in the 67 rooms. And a 2005 renovation means that the modern conveniences are just as impressive; the pool has countercurrent pressure to aid in your workout, the treadmills in the gym are new and buffet breakfast and WiFi are included in the room rate. More than a hotel, the Savoy continues to be part of the city’s history — locals order special occasion cakes from the restaurant, and stop into the bar for business meetings or a drink before the Bolshoi.
In the Area
Pull on your fur hat and stroll 500 meters to the Bolshoi for ballet or opera or to the Maly Theater for drama, or fast-forward through Russian history by visiting the Kremlin Museum. You’ve got modern Moscow at your feet, with the city center, major malls GUM and TSUM, and the Metro steps away. If you want to prolong the feeling of being an extra in Dr. Zhivago a little longer, the concierge can direct you towards ice skating and boating excursions.
How to Get There
great location easy walk to red square, restaurants and metro
was here for the world cup
the bar was a bit pricey but no different than any other hotel bar they did serve food 24 hours but it seemed that they microwaved the dishes
Very well located downtown Moscow, this hotel is typical from beginning 20th century regarding the decoration.
Room are nice and well equipped, indoor swimming pool is large, breakfast is very good with a pianist.
Only reservation is regarding toilets which are not separated from bathroom.
During the world cup this hotel was utterly expensive. I had paid in advance. When I arrived the hotel was not at all what I expected, and certainly not worth the price I had paid. Old, with dust, drapers and curtains looking like they have never been cleaned in years... only one elevator working, the noise in thw streets making unbearable to sleep. We checked out on the same night and decided to look for another hotel...the bathtub unattached, no shower... very bad installations!
Service is bad, reception is not friendly, beds are super-small, staff is very bad trained.
Location is good, but that s the only one good thing about this soviet hotel.
It says it is a 5-star, but I would give it only 3 stars. Missleading.
Stayed there in May, 2018. Very disappointed. Very bad service " soviet style" - constantly sleeping bell-door men (why even have them), poor quality breakfast (could not eat it, regret I paid for it upfront), the beds in the room were so small - I almost fell.
Reception was unfriendly.
And in the end of the trip - our safe was broken and it took almost for one good hour for 3 soviet men to fix it (we had to seat and wait in the room listening their discussion about how to fix the safe). Hotel though gave me free complimentary taxi to the airport on demand for inconvenience.
Pluses : 1. huge room (but bad view on some constructions); 2. quiet room - no noises. (+ and -) : The pool was huge - but again - ruined by "soviet " service (lady was sort of annoying breaking our balls with worrying about pool towels which we were supposed to bring back.
And location - it was more or less quiet (as much as it can be possible for such crazy city as Moscow).
I would say - this is not 5 star at all. I would give it 3 stars.
