Where to Stay in Moscow
A city that never fails to impress, Moscow has more than enough attractions, history and character to pack a traveler’s diary.
The iconic Kremlin and Red Square with Lenin’s Mausoleum and the colored domes of St Basil’s Cathedral are just a few of the ‘must see’ sites on any visitor’s list. And with a 14-line metro system spanning the city and a wide choice of accommodation options, a visit to Moscow is a true adventure whatever the weather.
City Center/Red Square Hotels
If being on the doorstep of the Kremlin, Red Square and the State Historical Museum is important to you then look no further than the hotels in the city center close to the heartbeat of the capital.
The Ararat Park Hyatt is an upscale hotel less than 15 minutes by foot from St Basil’s Cathedral and four minutes from the Bolshoi Theater. The well-appointed rooms have scenic city views, while guests can choose from a sushi bar, a sports café and an Armenian restaurant or relax in the indoor pool and luxury spa.

On the lower end of the price scale, the Kitay Gorod Hotel offers basic lodging but in a convenient location – the nearest metro station is a five-minute walk away, while Red Square and the Bolshoi Theater are just 1.1km (0.7 miles) and 1.3km away respectively. Complimentary breakfast is also provided and children under the age of seven stay for free in their parents’ room.
The Arbat district is dominated by Arbat Street, a 1km pedestrian street dominated by souvenir shops, outdoor performers and plenty of dining options. A popular area for tourists who can also visit the nearby Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and the Novodevichy Convent.

A beautiful city, loved it. I've been to Moscow 3 times, each time I fell in love. A lot to see, a lot to do, a lot to eat... must see before you die!
Beautiful city, full of history and beautiful people! The food is delicious!!
For quite a while I was in two minds about my attitude to the city. I saw its pluses and minuses, and generally considered the ratio to be 45/55, or 40/60. (Please, remember that I'm viewing it from within (Russia) rather than from without). Now I've changed my mind: I love it and I feel responsible for it. The better and the worst parts of my days passed here. The atmospere and the overall feel of the city has been changing for the better (more hospitable, humane and attractive) of late. Come feel the unique blend of predominant Asia and deep-rooted Europe, come see how the present generation of Russians is tackling the problems it inherited from its ill-fated predecessors.
A beautiful and understated city, Moscow has over 1000 restaurants to choose from, a sprawling city of things to do and is often misunderstood for its coldness and how expensive it is to travel here. There are many options from museums to parks, from theatres to metro stations and from pizza to caviar.
