Hotel Check IN National Hotel Moscow  |  Moscow, Russia  |  One of the landmark hotels of the city of Moscow, located right across the Red Square, the Kremlin and the National Museum. Built in 1903 by famed Russian architect Alexander Ivanov, Hotel National has been an awe-inspiring historic landmark for more than a century. Member of The Luxury Collection. Check out and follow my Instagram Photo Album on Russia.

We were upgraded to a fabulous Corner Suite, with almost 180 degrees view of the Kremlin over Mokhovaya Street. Each of the 201 luxuriously appointed guest rooms feature genuine exclusive furniture, spacious bathing and dressing areas. The hotel’s suites are adorned with authentic and rare Russian antiques.

So far our stay has been amazing, although I would have to say: that their mattresses are not the most comfortable I have ever slept on, and their breakfast falls a bit short compared to other hotels in Moscow. But hey I must admit that the views and 100 years of history make all worth it.

The history of the National is a journey into a past rich in events. It is a tale of the people who were at the origins of the hospitality industry in Russia, a tale of our contemporaries and a story of the traditions of Russian entrepreneurial spirit and hospitality. Over the years, the hotel’s guests have included heads of state and government, diplomats and businessmen, military officials, scientists, writers and musicians.

The hotel’s restoration in the 1930s marked yet another milestone in achieving even greater grandeur. Artifacts from Russian Tsar palaces and aristocrats’ estates were added, and the hotel was decorated with museum-quality furniture, exceptional paintings and exclusive art objects. To this day, visitors can still marvel at the majority of these precious antiques forming part of the National’s interior. More upon Check OUT. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator –
