Fodor's Expert Review Budapest
2/18 Petrovsky Linii, Moscow, Moscow, 127051, Russia
What opened in 1876 as a club for noblemen became a hotel for visiting Soviet bureaucrats to stay while on official business and now is a homey if somewhat outdated place to stay in the city center with high ceilings, skirted bedspreads, and tasseled lampshades. A restaurant serves a conservative range of European dishes, there's a cozy bar, and just up the block there's Gogol, a trendy and inexpensive café that serves traditional Russian food. The Kremlin is also just a short walk away.
- great location
- nice Old World ambiance
- Soviet-style service can be a bit indifferent
- dated decor
