Best for Luxury - Expert review of Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow
The Baltschug Kempinski is one of Moscow's most glamorous hotels. With a beautiful location overlooking the Kremlin, it brings to mind other grand hotels built at the turn of the century throughout Europe. A byword for style, the hotel serves business guests as well as tourists, but you may find it hard to do any work in such luxurious surroundings. The hotel caters well to large-scale formal occassions such as weddings and offers a range of packages such as celebrating Easter in Russia, golf weekends and and arts and culture package which would make fantastic gifts.
A perfect location in central Moscow, the hotel is a short stroll to the Kremlin and Red Square. If you are only staying in Moscow for a few days and want to see the city's highlights this would be a good choice.
The Baltschug Kempinski's beautiful rooms complement the hotel's great views of Moscow. Expect thick carpets and plush interiors, with some of the hotel's newer rooms providing a more modern take on luxury. The Linley Suite was designed by David, Viscount Linley, nephew of Her Majesty the Queen. While the Princess Suite, with its marble bathroom, will make you feel like royalty.
The main communal area is the lobby bar, which serves ceremonial afternoon tea, including delicate pastries.
There are a number of eating and drinking options at the Baltschug Kempinski. The Lobby Bar serves complementary early bird breakfast from 4.30am to 7.00am, before opening for a buffet breakfast and serving afternoon tea later in the day. The Baltschug Kempinski restaurant's menu is as extravagant as its interiors and features Russian dishes such as sturgeon and beef stroganoff. At the weekend locals join guests for one of Moscow's best brunches. In the evening the bar is a nice place to sip cocktails and smoke cigars.
The focus is on relaxation rather than working out at the Balschug Kempinski's leisure facilities, but the equipment and personal trainers are there if you really want to work out. Other facilities include a heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, saunas, solarium and massage rooms.
