Moscow hasn’t just embraced capitalism, it’s capitalised itself into the world’s richest city in the space of a couple of decades. Moscow has the most billionaires, the most popular nightclub is called ‘The Most’, and it also boasts of having the world’s most expensive cup of coffee. Moscow has accommodation to suit every pocket, from budget hostels to hotels worthy of a Tsar — or an oligarch. Many of the best places to stay in Moscow are close to Red Square and the historic centre.
Even before the fall of the Soviet era, Moscow was home to many very beautiful, very opulent buildings. The red brick of the Kremlin and black cobbles of Red Square are steeped in history and many treasures built by the Tsars stand as a reminder of the pre-concrete block era of architecture. But since then many of the less glamorous buildings — factories and warehouses — have been converted into more beautiful ones, now housing art galleries and museums and even clubs and restaurants.
One of the best ways to experience Moscow is on a tour with a local. There are plenty of themed tours such as cooking and eating. Setting up one or more of these tours in advance is also a good way to get local insight into some of the best places to stay in Moscow. Alternatively, check out our guide on how to spend 36 hours in Moscow .
If you’re only here for a short time the best places to stay in Moscow will be close to the centre of town. The Metro system is good, but sprawling.
One of the oldest buildings in Moscow is the Novodevichy Convent, originally constructed in the 16th century. On the convent’s grounds is the even more famous Novodevichy Cemetery. Moscow has many other interesting churches, one of the most architecturally notable is the Church of the Ascension, built to commemorate the birth of Ivan the Terrible.
Old Arbat Street is also worth a stroll and, if you can afford it, a visit to the Bolshoi.
New Arbat Street is one of the best places to stay in Moscow if you’re here to see and be seen. This is where you’ll find some of Moscow’s most expensive restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Tverskaya Street is another fashionable hangout, especially around the Yeliseev Grocery Store, which is like a Russian Harrod’s.
Moscow has some amazing shopping and one of the most interesting retail destinations has to be GUM, right next to Red Square. Once full of mediocre Soviet-era goods, this mall has been converted inside into a haven of the high end. The architecture remains relatively unchanged….
What Not To Miss.
As far as the headline sights go most people start in Red Square; visiting St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum and the State History Museum.

Gorky Park was a Communist era leisure centre, with an injection of culture into the mix, and is a fascinating place for appreciating the changes that have taken place here in relatively recent history. .
Moscow has a number of notable art galleries, the most famous being the Tretyakov Gallery and the Puchkin Museum. The Tretyakov is mostly works by Russians artists, which the Pushkin is more western, and has one of the world’s most significant collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works.
If you want to pick up a few traditional souvenirs then head out to the Izmaylovo Market on the weekend.
While in Moscow it’s worth trying a banya — Russian bathhouse — where the menu involves a hot steam followed by a sound whipping with birch branches.

Moscow has a deserved reputation as an expensive city to visit; however, people who travel here do have a range of options.
Here are 10 good choices of places to stay , whether you’re here for sports events such as the World Cup , business meetings or tours of historical sights. And we have a range of options from luxury hotels to budget choices if you need to rest your head somewhere inexpensive:.
The sweeping panoramas seen from the Swissôtel’s 27 cylindrical stories outclass those of the low-lying luxury hotels near the Kremlin. Floor-to-ceiling windows in every room add drama to the scene.
The design strikes a balance between comfortable and ostentatious, with grand marble bathrooms softened by earthy upholstery and simple hardwood floors.
Although slightly outside the city center, Swissôtel has the advantage of being right by Moscow Paveletsky , the railway station for trains to and from Domodedovo Airport .
The highlight of any stay is a cocktail at the flying saucer-like City Space Bar .
Forget vodka. At the O2 Lounge crowning the Ritz-Carlton, you can order shots of oxygen to go with your sushi, while looking down on Red Square and the Kremlin.
Rooms come with polished cherrywood furniture, feather bedding and heated marble bathroom floors. The Ritz-Carlton Suite has a grand piano, library and sauna, as well as gorgeous views of St. Basil’s Cathedral.
Gothic iron staircases and black pillars lead to the Lobby Lounge, where the who’s who of Russian society eat caviar: beluga, salmon, golden.
Courtesy Hilton Moscow Leningradskaya.
It may be located in one of Moscow’s so-called Seven Sisters skyscrapers, built in the 1950s in a Stalinist neoclassical style, but the Leningradskaya is more posh than proletariat.
The heritage lobby has 12-meter-high (39 feet) bronze ceilings draped with enormous chandeliers. Bronze statues, marble pillars and gilded cornices complete the dramatic entrance.
From here, guest rooms are accessed via a sweeping staircase overhung with another chandelier — this staircase was, until recently, the longest of its kind in the world.
The Gothic-style Janus Restaurant is a festival of marble and dark oak, and offers Russian specialties such as okroshka soup with kefir, sparkling water and vegetables.
The Kempinski isn’t only host to royalty, it was in part designed by royalty.
Princess Michael of Kent and David Linley are the talents behind the Princess and Linley suites respectively. The former is decorated with lace and chintz and the latter is done up in a masculine combination of Italian marble and sustainable hardwood furniture.
The breakfast spread in Restaurant Baltschug Grill is one of the most lavish in town — scrambled eggs with caviar, for starters — while the spa offers yoga sessions overlooking the Kremlin, massages incorporating rose quartz and Philippine seashells, plus royal grooming treatments by Truefitt & Hill.
5. The Golden Apple.
The Golden Apple’s slick combination of historic and avant-garde makes it one of the best of Moscow’s boutique hotels. It’s housed in a 19th-century mansion painted Easter egg blue just off glamorous Tverskaya Street, a 10-minute walk from Red Square.
Every floor is painted a shade of the rainbow (naturally, there are seven in all). Each of the guestrooms has a different design based on its color.
The best room is the Chekhov Deluxe: a sculpture of a seagull nods to the playwright’s best-known work, while the excellent view and heated bathroom floor might inspire you to linger over some Russian classics.
Arbat House is an inviting place in the city center. Located on a quiet side street surrounded by embassies and mansions, it’s several minutes’ walk from the pedestrian-only Old Arbat and about a 20-minute walk to Red Square.
The staff is polite and friendly. It has 136 rooms that are comfortable and modern in a variety of sizes: singles and doubles up to suites. A major plus is the expansive complimentary buffet breakfast served in its BB cafe.
Courtesy Aquamarine Hotel.
This modern hotel was opened in 2010 and occupies a spot on the south bank of the Moskva River, but it’s still walking distance to Red Square on the north bank.
It’s in the Zamoskvorechye district, which has parks and plenty of its own historical sites.
Along with comfortable rooms and suites, Aquamarine also has a gym, Finnish sauna and massage rooms. Its Topaz restaurant serves breakfast and then follows with European-Asian fusion cuisine for lunch and dinner.
Surly Soviet monoliths on the outskirts of town were once the budget traveler’s sole lodging recourse, but the new Moscow branch of this Russian hotel chain is a gracious, relaxing haven just one stop outside the central metro line.
Azimut is housed in a 19th-century textile factory, and maintains many features of the original design: exposed brick, vaulted ceilings and cast-iron columns. Rooms come with mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
First of all, there’s just the cool factor of staying in a place with name of the first satellite. And then there’s the cool factor of saving money in an expensive city.
You can get anything from a double room to one where you share space with up to eight people for maximum savings and a chance to make travel buddies. There’s also a large kitchen and living room, three shared showers and bathrooms, a lounge area with a projector and a space for storing luggage. It also has free Wi-Fi.
It’s an eight-minute walk to the Moscow Museum of Modern Art and close to several Metro stops.
This hotel was built for the 1980 Olympic Games and has the early ’80s look of it, too, on the exterior. It also features about 1,000 rooms, some of which offer wallet relief in pricey Moscow.
If you want to spend more, you can get an executive room with sauna, jacuzzi and rain shower. The hotel has a gym and bicycles to rent if you prefer to pedal around Moscow.
It’s located on the edge of Izmailovo Park, which has several buildings dating back to the 17th century and is the home of the popular Vernissage souvenir market. It’s about 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) from Red Square.
Be sure to catch these sights in Moscow.
