The brand and the Zen contemporary décor are Korean; one of the celebrated restaurants (Megu) is Japanese-by-way-of-New-York, and the other is haute French cuisine; the cosmetics used in the spa’s facials are Swiss (Bellefontaine) and the overall vibe of this 300-room property is international-man-of-mystery. One of Moscow’s newest luxury hotels, the Lotte has quickly become a city fixture with its two celebrated restaurants (three when the Terrace is open in the summer) and the cozy Lounge bar. Work off the calories in the blue-tiled indoor pool, then relax in the Jacuzzi.
In the Area
You can walk to the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral and to the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, which has Russia’s best collection of impressionist and post-impressionist works. And, given that the hotel is on the Garden Ring, the vast six-to-eighteen-lane highway that circles Moscow, it’s an easy cab ride to pretty much any place else. But the nearest attraction is pedestrian Arbat Street, a 15th-century promenade that is lined with cafés, shops, churches, and statues of Russian notables.
How to Get There
I am glad to travel around the world and staying at the best hotels and easily start getting use to the best and highest standard.
Maybe, that’s why I am not the kind of person anymore who shares the good feedbacks often. I assume that we kind of take it as granted. However, actually, it should be the other way around. When we try the best and we still get positively surprised like I got this week, it is when we must share and point out.
I had an absolutely stunning stay mainly due to the well trained and bespoke staff. I would like to give a big and special hands up to Sergie and all his concierge team. They truly made me feel at home and comfortable at the mother Russia arranging all the transfers, SIM cards issues, constant follow up, orientations, etc.
A service detail was on the last day which was silently very appreciated from my side. I have called the operator and mentioned that I may need some shoe shining. A few minutes after, I am going out for another meeting crossing the lobby and Sergie approaches me “Mr. Mouta (yes, all your Concierge and bellman team was addressing me by name), I believe that you need some shoe shinning. What time shall we pick up the shoes?”. With having me mentioning nothing. Truly bespoke and above and beyond service. You mean luxury at Lotte and I can see why. What a smooth and polish luxury approach.
It is never enough, thank you Lotte hotel. You must be proud of what you are building up. See you next year!
The hotel was excellent in many ways: services, room, amenities, the view from the room (9th floor). It’s far from the red square and surroundings, a nearest hotel to the red square is the Marriot. I had fun discovering what was inside all the drawers in the room. Besides the hotel there is a nice restaurant called Kalina Bar, with a great view.
Thank you very much to all of the staff I encountered for my three nights at your hotel this week. They were all lovely and very professional. I was made to feel so welcome. The room was great. Everything about my stay was a pleasure.
I have stayed at the Lotte Hotel for 4 nights. What an amazing experience. From the time I have arrived until the last minute all were excellent. A very happy man greeted us at the entrance and had a very efficient check in and escorted to the room. What a fantastic room! Amazing dining options with a very cozy bar and a fabulous wellness centre. I will be definitely return back.
I have stayed with a friend in this hotel over the weekend as a getaway, great room (yet I still would prefer it to be a little bit more contemporary), wonderful SPA! I live in Moscow, so didn’t mind the fact that it is a bit far away from the city center. Had a nice view over the Moscow city, but couldn’t get good shots as the windows from the outside were way too dirty..
