Last week Moscow’s Mayor Yury Luzhkov officially opened the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow. Formerly known as Hotel Ukraina, the impressive building with a height of 206m and a total surface of more than 100,000sqm is one of Stalin’s legendary skyscrapers Seven Sisters, and reopened its doors after an extensive three year renovation. The hotel now features 506 guest rooms and suites as well as 38 apartments.
A team of architects, designers and technicians restored the hotel’s exterior and interiors. The 505 rooms and suites (25-370sqm) as well as 38 serviced apartments (70-120sqm) with kitchenettes were all re-done.
The hotel was fitted with furniture and accessories from Villeroy & Boch, as well as other well-known brands.
On the first floor, the hotel features the Royal Wellness Club – an exclusive health- and fitness center on 3,500sqm and including a 50m heated indoor pool, a perfectly equipped gym, a beauty parlor and spa area, thermal baths and massage rooms.
Business guests can use the meeting rooms and two conferencing and banqueting halls with 420sqm which can host 350 people for a cocktail reception and 150 people for a gala dinner.
The rooms and public spaces are decorated with a collection of paintings, which comprise more than 1,200 original master works by Russian artists created in the first half of last century. On the ground floor, the Diorama Moscow – the capital of the USSR is a true highlight
The main restaurant Veranda serves contemporary Mediterranean cuisine and classic international dishes, and the Tatler Club serves fusion cuisine by Russian Chef Arkady Novikov. At Bono guests enjoy Italian specialties, Farsi invites to taste exotic Iranian menus, the Takasa on the 31st floor serves sophisticated Japanese delicacies – and the best spot for a drink and a song after dinner is the hotel’s Trubadur Karaoke Bar with views over the city.
