Hotels in Russia

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

Discreet and distinguished, this little-advertised hotel exudes serenity in the heart of a city on a 24-hour coffee buzz.

Distinct among Moscow’s top hotels for its sleek modernity, the Ararat is epitomized by its glass-topped penthouse lounge—where power brokers and visiting European celebrities gather for breakfast mocha or evening vodka, along with spectacular views over the Kremlin’s star-peaked towers.

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.

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

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.
