A view of the Kremlin from the Baltschug Kempinski, Moscow
The whole splendour of Russian history and architecture is reflected in this luxury five-star hotel, rising like a mighty giant from the bank of the river Moskva.
10 DECEMBER 2009
The Baltschug is strategically located in the heart of the old centre of Moscow; it offers views of Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin, and is only 600 meters from the Tretyakov Gallery. The monumental facade, dating from 1898, looks like a palace, and inside, classic style and modern facilities combine in perfect harmony in the beautiful decor and excellent service. There are 230 rooms, including 31 suites; all are spacious and comfortable with elegant furnishings and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Nothing is missing from the facilities on offer, and everything is in keeping with the five star rating. Work out in the gym, unwind in the sauna, pamper yourself with a therapeutic massage, or take a dip in the indoor pool. Relax at the Berlin-style Cafe Kranzler and enjoy Russian and European cuisine at the Baltschug restaurant, overlooking the Moskva river, or Japanese cuisine at the Shogun.
