The second tallest of the Seven Sisters—Stalinist Gothic towers that define Moscow’s skyline—this symbol of an empire is a city unto itself with 497 rooms and apartments, an on-site art gallery and row of shops, six restaurants (Iranian, Italian, and steakhouse among them), three bars (one with karaoke, another with panoramic views), and a spa complete with an Olympic-sized indoor pool. And like many of the best cities, the Radisson Royal Moscow can be approached by land or by sea, thanks to the hotel’s seven yachts.
In the Area
It’s located at the crossroads of two major thoroughfares, but what really defines the location of the Radisson Royal Moscow is its position on the banks of the Moskva River. Not only does the site make for great views while you’re inside the hotel, but from here, the hotel’s seven yachts leave for two-hour cruises past the city’s greatest waterfront sites such as the Kremlin and the Cathedral of Christ our Savior. To make sailing even smoother, there’s a bar onboard.
How to Get There
My clients typically put me at this hotel. Great location I stayed on the Executive Floor which is really nice. The employees know your name and use it. Extremely helpful. I got spoiled great views. Everyone knows where the hotel is
I stay regularly at the Radisson Royal and am never disappointed. Comfortable rooms, excellent buffet breakfast, proximity to stores and restaurants. Staff is friendly and efficient. Would recommend to anyone.
The hotel was great with its design, staff, cleanliness and breakfast. The only issue may be the distance to metro, but it was eventually better for me as I learned that taxis are convenient in Moscow. Highly recommended!
Radisson Royal Hotel (ex-hotel Ukraina) feels like one of the old grand hotels. Doorman are everywhere, it has a grand entry lobby, limos zooming in and out all the time. Check in was easy, rooms are nice and big, beautifull bathroom. We had a front view of the Moscow river and of the "Russian White House" on the other side. Location on Kutuzovsky Prospekt is great, with a few good restaurants on the river bank just below the hotel within 2 minute walking distance. Breakfast spread was great, with a large variety of food. Staff however is almost too eager to please and to clean your table even if you are not quite yet done. If breakfast is not included in the price of your room, be ready to shell out RUB2500 or about $45. A recommendation to stay from me, as this is one of Moscow's signature buildings - one of seven that Stalin build in the same syle.
This is historical hotel not far form the city center. It has great view to Moscow City. Very comfortable room with soft bed linen and absolutely quiet inside which made very deep sleep. I would definitely stay there again.
