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
I stayed in this hotel two nights at the beginning of March 2019.
the room was very clean and with all comfort.
the staff group, in my opinion, is one of the best ever!
just one little negative point: breakfast doesn't give you a wide range where to choose as you can find on this level of hotels.
generally it was very good!
We stayed at the Savoy Hotel for 7 nights and absolutely loved it. We booked an executive room which was just perfect for our needs. The bed was larger than your usual king size and very comfortable, the room was warm and clean. The only thing missing was the tea making facilities, there was no kettle or coffee machine in the room, but you could order room service if you wanted tea in the morning. Breakfast was amazing, and the dinning room itself with its marble floors, painted ceilings is wonderful in itself but then to be sat by a fountain with fish swimming around, and a pianist playing the piano whilst eating breakfast is just quiet surreal. The staff are welcoming, attentive and polite. The only negative I can say about the hotel was the evening restaurant. We booked a table for the Friday evening, it was our 20th anniversary so wanted it to be extra special. We had read the Savoy Hotel restaurant was one of the best restaurant's in Moscow to eat. We sat at the table and I requested a vegetarian menu, I was told there wasn't one. When I asked if there was anything that could be made for me, I was told I could have a salad from the starter menu with chips (French fries) and vegetables from the side menu. I did check again that there was nothing else that could be offered to me, but again I was told 'No', so we left the restaurant I took off my cocktail dress, dressed more appropriately for the outside weather went into the town for our meal and had a great evening. I should say the experience did not spoil our stay, we just did something different than originally planned. It's just we were so looking forward to eating at the Savoy and drinking Champaign to our anniversary after all the positive reviews, we felt the evening would have enhanced our stay. Such a shame really, but the location is great for Red Square, the Bolshoi Theatre, Gorky Park and all the main 'MUST SEE' sites. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Moscow loved it !!!!.
walked past this hotel in SEP last year and I saw the print of "SAVOY" which kind of made you think of other SAVOYs in London and elsewhere.
i was thinking to get a quick lunch plus a good local beer (as it was quite hot that day).
wow, the decor exhibited after entering the vestibule tells you that the restaurant probably doesn't serve anything casual.
if that's the case, let's be it!
so i ordered something which one didn't easily find it elswhere, not to mention the quality being served.
"OX's cheek", that's what i ordered and enjoyed so much the tenderness, while the richness of the taste well kept.
being for too long in China, where every service step has been omitted or simplified to match the "igorant" level of servers and their managers, Moscow is the place to visit if you desire quality food and services at very resonable prices.
the cheque for my appetizer + entree + beer and the fresh bread is 32 USD (2100 rubles).
WHAT a deal !!!
The staff, for Russia, were happy, smiling and helpful. The pool beautiful, the sauna a body cooking 85 degrees which was delightful. We had a peak in the Grand National Hotel, very traditional Russian with heavy atmosphere and furnishings and ambiance, the Savoy was traditional yet light and fresh and welcoming.The restaurant is amazing, we only had breakfast, which was for a hotel of this calibre, disappointing, but the room it's self is ode to the original and stunning. The piano player for breakfast was sublime. Seeing a Sturgeon in the fountain was appreciated as a part of Russia's history and culture. The only draw back, which compared to other Moscow hotels was not as bad, air-conditioning is so dry it dries out the back of your throat causing problems breathing and sleeping. Which we alleviated with a $5 kettle to create steam and a glass of water by our bed.
All in all a delightful hotel.
We had a wonderful stay at The Savoy Moscow . It is well situated for all the city sights. The reception staff are extremely friendly and helpful . The rooms are beautiful and housekeeping is a high standard .
