If you like superlatives, this is the place—its 334 rooms and suites are arguably the largest in Moscow, at what might be the closest proximity to Red Square (less than 500 feet away). Add to that contenders for the city’s best sushi (prepared by chef Seiji Kusano at the 02 Lounge) and the largest Russian collection of Macallan Single Malt, on offer in the Lobby Lounge (where you can also get traditional afternoon tea) and, just maybe, the best views of Moscow’s spires and steeples from the rooftop bar and the top floors in this 11-story tower. The rooms spoil with dark cherry, burl wood and marble imported from Portugal and the Altai mountains.
In the Area
This hotel is so centrally located, the concierge measures the distance to museums, sights and shopping in the minutes it will take you to get there. That’s 30 to the thrilling views from Sparrow Hills, 15 to Tsvetnoy Central Market, 10 to the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, 4 to the Bolshoi Theatre, 3 to Red Square (where the hotel can arrange for a private tour of the Kremlin’s Palace of the Facets), and 2 to the 19th- century Alexandrov Gardens.
How to Get There
Despite its excellent location, 2 min walk to red square and metro and impressive well equipped rooms, something is badly missing making my experience less than optimum...
Despite my office in Moscow doing booking they took my card at checkin stating that itz only for blocking against petty uses like mini bar. But they debited entire amount for 3 nights !! Also we checked in at around 10, they took entire full day charge for early check in...crazy...
My card was debited for other amounts which I had to protest to get reverted...even the day I checked out the card was debited again...upon query they apologised for mistake and reversed...but all these made my stay agonising...
Otherwise also there seems many gaps...the guy who brought me to the room struggled to tell me about tv channel choices, bed side light never worked...reception was not fully aware how to get my boarding pass printed ..and all such small slippages...
They need to plan and coordinate better...won't advise staying here at such huge price...better search other such hotels nearby...and there were plenty...
My first time at a Ritz Carlton and I wasn't disappointed. Everything about this property reeks of opulence from the door-man in his top hat and tails to the superb furnishings of the hotel. My room was stunning in black and gold with a view over the main drag which is eight lanes wide - but no noise.
Loved the bar but the prices are well over what one would expect to pay for a drink but I guess that goes with the territory.
Highly recommended for those who can afford it.
Went there for 3 days to attend a conference and was immediately greeted by there staff, the service is second to none. One of the staff by the name of Kristina blondie also guided us to near by attractions and a theatre, the front of the hotel was lined up with high end cars as part of concierge service .Everything in the room was top notch
Keep it up
