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.
Eating and drinking
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.
Service is one of the hotel's strong points,, with staff attentive and helpful.
