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
We recently stayed two nights at this property. It was our first time at a Ritz Carlton and we don't regret it.We have stayed at many five star properties over the years and I must say the level of service here was exemplary. The view from the club room was great. Food selections from the club room was very nice. My only suggestion would be an expanded hot dish selection in the evening
I stay at the ritz moscow for 5 days was espectacular. The place is unbelievable
Is less that 3 minutes walking from the klemlin.5 minutos from bolshoi theater and the best restaurant just near.and the price is the best in their category.
Had a great five days at this hotel . The location is first class and close to Red Square and the Kremlin . We had no problems walking to many of the attractions and used taxis a few times . The staff at the hotel and the service could not be faulted and nothing was too much trouble . The rooms were marvelous and very comfortable with excellent fittings . We did not eat at the hotel and their are plenty bars and restaurants nearby .Would certainly like a return visit if they had competative pricing .
