Hotels in Russia

Spend the night in one of the 60 new suites at the Taleon Imperial Hotel, a favorite of Russian high rollers.

National landmark with neo-Baroque façade and Art Nouveau interiors that is the perfect base from which to explore the city's cultural attractions: it's near the Russian Museum and the Mikhailovsky Theatre.

A luxurious refurbishment of a stalin-era villa, the 40-room Rodina is set on manicured grounds with a private beachfront in the year-round resort town of Sochi.

It bucks the Moscow trend of bigger-is-better, and it’s a bit off the well-trod tourist track—and that’s exactly why this boutique hotel is such a welcome find.

Elegant interiors (parquet floors; white marble bathrooms), opposite St. Isaac’s Cathedral and within walking distance of the Russian Museum. 

Room to Book: Request a room looking out on St. Isaac's Cathedral.

Doubles From $1,050.

Real presidents stay in the Presidential Suite at the National—Moscow’s most vaunted historic hotel, set just across the street from the Kremlin.

This 19th-century behemoth, one in a series of palatial Baroque and Neoclassical buildings—and actual palaces—lining the city’s famed main thoroughfare, reopened in 2009 after a $135 million refurbishment.
