Expert review of The Savoy Hotel Moscow
The Savoy first opened in 1913, before spending the Soviet era as "The Berlin." One of the first hotels to return to type after the collapse of the Soviet Union, it underwent further major rennovation in 2005. The rococo design is opulent and luxurious although some of the city's other five star hotels have a better location.
The hotel has hosted international stars such as Luciano Pavarotti, Richard Gere and Jane Fonda as well as various foreign dignitaries.
The hotel's location is very good, but not great and it is a bit of a walk to the city's major tourist attractions. The area is very pleasant however, and well served by the metro.
Elegant and luxurious, even the Savoy's smaller rooms feel very grand. Marble bathrooms add to the atmosphere created by the plush velvet and gilt furnishings in the rooms.
The Hermitage Lobby Bar is a nice place to relax and is quiet enough to have a meeting or make phone calls without being disrupted.
The Savoy Restaurant is opulent and a good location for black tie events and wedding receptions, but be warned if you are looking for a quick bite to eat that the atmosphere may be too formal. Offering a good selection of traditional Russian fare, if you are celebrating you can order a cake in advance.
The fitness centre is open daily from 7am to 11pm and has a good range of equipment including treadmills, step machines, exercise bikes and rowing machines. There is also a swimming pool, a sauna and a beauty parlor.
Excellent old fashioned service.
Film stars, musicians, older travellers, foreign dignitaries.
Reasonable for a five star hotel in Moscow.
