The 19th century Ritz Carlton Moscow on Tverskaya is an architectural nod to Imperial Russia: the vast, gold-plated lobby is enhanced with fine paintings, sculptures and impressive sparkling chandeliers.

With an unbeatable location close to the Kremlin and Red Square, The Ritz-Carlton is one of Moscow’s most luxurious hotels. This hotel is as central as you can get! Moscow traffic is the only drawback being this central. Not that you will hear it once you are inside.

A fusion of history, architecture, culture, art and shopping makes Moscow attractive to families, couples and solo travellers alike. The smartly dressed hotel staff are experts on the local area and are glad to craft personalised itineraries based on your specific interests.

The Ritz Carlton is moments away from the Bolshoi Theatre and on the opposite side of the street to Red Square, GUM and the Kremlin. It’s a 5-10-minute walk through the square to St Basil’s Cathedral and the Moskva River, and just one city block to the Manege Central Exhibition Hall. Designer shops and top-end restaurants are all on your doorstep too. The hotel also offers an educational program of culinary workshops and tastings. But if you want to sit back and relax you can head to the hotels ESPA spa and fitness centre and choose from 14 treatment rooms.
