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, friendly staff and very nice and clean room. Great location. The lobby is beautiful. Would definitely recommend this hotel! The receptionist arranged a taxi for us because we had to leave early. The lady at the swimmingpool was very friendly.
I spent 2 nights at the Hotel Savoy, a historic hotel in the heart of Moscow, close to the Bolshoi and to the Kremlin. Overall the hotel is well maintained with many period features and classical furniture. The Hermitage Bar is a positive as well as the friendly staff. My bed however was saggy and hard and breakfast was not even 3 star standard, not even close to the standard needed for a 5 star hotel. Overall OK, but not my style, with the bed being a major let down.....would neither recommend nor return...
Hotel Savoy is surely one of the best hotels in Moscow, boasting a delicate and sumptuous decorations of Russian Tsar living in the entire complex. We chose Savoy over Metropol for its price , which in Oct 2018 is 20% cheaper than Metropol but we think both Savoy and Metropol will enhance your stay and visit in Moscow.
Service is outstanding and all staff are highly attentive if not full of smiles. While toom is not very large its high ceiling makes the room feel very comfy and large. Bathroom is big and clean. Breakfast may be the best part of hotel with a large variety of food, juice in the very impressive and palace style with fountain and live piano for your soothing breakfast. What’s a lively and lovely BF experience. While its location may be a bit far from Red square within 20 mins walking you can walk 3 mins to nearby Metro subway station and it is surrounded by many shopping malls and shops.
The Savoy has rooms that keep the old décor perfectly. Ours was a basic room but was spacious with a huge bathroom. There was no electric jug but on request one was supplied with two types of tea on a fancy tray. The reception staff spoke good English and were mostly friendly. The only negative was the airport pickup which was just a fancy taxi that waited at the wrong terminal so we lost nearly one hour. The hotel has a perfect location for the major sights. We ate in the restaurant which is lavishly decorated. Service and food were superb, but wine very expensive. Overall value for money was good and I would stay again.
Usually I would prefer boutique/minimalist hotel with newer building. But this time I choose Savoy for different experience of staying. Classic style? Why not while we are in Russia!
Location was excellent. close to most of the top attractions, walk-able distance. Restaurants around, convenient store and mall are close by. Room was spacious, with classic renaissance details, and-amenities! the scent of the amenities is sooo classic, my husband loves it. bathroom were spacious and amenities are complete. We got free chocolates and mineral water everyday- yes, it is important for me.
Bed were spacious and comfortable as well, everything was perfect. staffs were friendly too. Nice experience, really. didnt get to try the food though.
there were band and music play across our room, so it will be a bit noisy. But it was a free entertainment to see, and anyway, they will stop before 10 pm. so it was OK
