Accommodation in Moscow
Spend some time exploring the city centre
Most people begin their journey to Moscow in the heart of the city. Many of the best attractions are clustered around this urban centre, with the elegantly-appointed public Metro providing easy access to most sites. From Lenin's Mausoleum in Red Square to the fortifications of the Kremlin, the city centre will keep you engaged for days.
At the heart of it all you'll also find a generous selection of hotels providing a comfortable place to stay as you explore. Though, this is not the city for skimping as premium quality and star rated service are the norm. Such international brands as the Park Hyatt and Ritz-Carlton offer 5-star stays, while a handful of boutiques provide reasonable mid range pricing.
Experience Russian culture
The Russian culture is palpable throughout its capital city as Moscow is home to many cultural highlights. You may want to consider a visit to the historic Bolshoi Theatre to see the Bolshoi Ballet in person, or simply marvel at the 18th-century architecture and opulent interiors. Or, head to the Pushkin Museum to view some of the world's most significant Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artworks.
The accommodation in this area encompasses everything from hostels to exquisite hotels in striking period buildings. If you're travelling on a smaller budget, the Antihostel Cosmic is a unique option with the choice of a personal module or bunk. Alternatively, the Marriott Royal Aurora Hotel is a centrally located option with 5-star service .
Venture to the outskirts
There are a number of parks located throughout the city that provide a chance to escape the usual tourist destinations. Though, the Kolomenskoe nature reserve is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Moscow along the Moskva River. It is home to the historic, white stone church and many more 16th- and 17th-century structures.
There are a number of quality hotels located within close proximity to this pastoral reserve. Reasonable pricing abounds with plenty offering good value for money, clean rooms and quality facilities. This includes the Azimut Moscow Tulksaya Hotel, which offers easy access to the reserve as well as Donskoy Monastery.
