Baltschug Kempinski

Just across the river from Red Square, the Baltschug Kempinski is located on Bolotny Island, Moscow’s trendiest hotspot, but also has views of the Kremlin and the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour for traditionalists.

Victoria is here to help give you the inside track.

Of the 230 rooms, the ones with river views are undoubtedly the best, but they are all elegantly decorated and larger than most in a city like Moscow where space usually comes at a cost.

The Baltschug Grill is renowned for its puddings and the newly opened Café Kranzler is fast becoming one of Moscow's most popular new restaurants. For those who may have over-indulged the night before, the hotel's spa and fitness studio have been designed with functionality valued as highly as aesthetics.

Not only is the newly renovated Red October district within striking distance - with the majority of Moscow's hippest bars and clubs - but so is the Tretyakov Gallery which houses the finest collection of Russian art in the world; the Baltschug is the ideal choice for those wanting to explore Russia's past and present.

Other places to stay in Moscow

Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow

Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow

The Ararat Park Hyatt is the most modern of the luxury hotels in central Moscow and often regarded as the best, all just a few minutes walk from the city’s most iconic landmarks and next door to the Bolshoi.

Hotel National

Hotel National

To say that the National has benefited from Moscow’s rich, and often tumultuous past, is something of an understatement; Lenin stayed here shortly after the October Revolution (his latter residence is, coincidentally, about 30 seconds away) and the hotel is decorated with numerous artefacts pilfered from aristocrats’ estates and palaces.

Ritz-Carlton Moscow

Ritz-Carlton Moscow

Since the early 18th century No. 3 Tverskaya Street has been a hotel - the state run ‘Intourist’ was here during the Soviet era - but it was only in 2007 that the Ritz-Carlton opened its doors, becoming the first of the Western luxury hotel giants to stake a claim to the city. The original, and for many still the best, the Ritz Carlton boasts not only one of the city’s most sought after addresses - Red Square is practically its back garden - but also some of its most stylish accommodations.
