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.
Why we love it
The hotel is perfectly located to explore Moscow, whatever your particular passion.
