Boasting landmark status, this historic hotel combines opulent guest rooms with impressive business and leisure facilities, and has recently scooped the title of Russia’s Leading Luxury Hotel 2010 at the World Travel Awards.

Formerly known as ‘Hotel Ukraina’, the hotel soars 206m high and occupies a monumental building that forms part of the legendary ‘Seven Sisters’ skyscraper project masterminded by Stalin as a showcase of Soviet Neo-classical architecture. A team of top designers, architects and technicians has meticulously restored the hotel’s exterior and interior, paying homage to the building’s illustrious past as the largest European hotel of its day.

Enjoying a prime city centre location, the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow is the epitome of luxury with its 505 elegant guest rooms and suites, 38 serviced apartments, original art collection, lavish on-site spa, gourmet dining and high-tech conferencing facilities. The hotel features free high-speed Internet access throughout, and is equipped with elegant furniture and accessories from worldwide leading brands including Baker, Provasi, Florence Art, Citterio, Villeroy & Boch, Penhaligon’s and Etro.
