I got recommanded this hotel from my Moscouvite girlfried that was once in restaurant there. I was planning a last minute weekend trip to Moscow and hotel was quite high on my short list due to excellent position and unsually favourable rate. After the Interconti (although I am premium gold member) refused early check in free of charge, even if there was availability, I decided to give a try to Savoy. Now, there are phrases you keep hearing all the time. One of those we that we work with people repeat: there is: there is no chace for a good first impression. Well Savoy prooved that there is one. As I arrived to the hotel at 7am, the start was not good. Bell boy somehow unatentive, did not open the door, did not take care of my suitecase. The young man at the reception did not wear a jacket or a name tag. I could have checked in right away, but for the extra payment of 3000 RBL. No hard feelings, because early check in was agreed per phone from 10am, but could have been dealed otherwise I think. Anyway, they made me a huge favour. I had a splendid breakfast at Dr. Zhivago and I had chace to see Moscow like I never did before. Almost without traffic, withoung madening crowds, Red Square almost empty. When I came back shortly after 10am, the impression was totally different. Another bell boy very attentive. Two very nice ladies (Olga and Nina) checked me in frinedly and efficialy. They were at disposal for questions also later in a very friendly manner. I was escorted to my room. Everything in hotel is in a perfect condition. Elevator, floors and of course room. Very nice and stylish furniture, also bathroom very confortable and everything what you expect to get in a 5* hotel. Bed also very confortable, enough of electrical sockets, lights and internet fine. They brought me vase for flowers. I stayed in many 5* properties around the world, but I think this the first time they brought porcelain and not a plastic or glass vase. Very stylish. I had some time to test pool and sauna. Sauna normal, pool very big for a hotel pool. Easy to reach from the room. Before we went out, we had aperitff in hotel bar. Also there service was very friendly and fast. Breakfast ist beeing served in magnificent Savoy Restaurant and it is experience by itself. Choice is on the level of Russian upscale hotel, me personally I would wish a bit more choice of cheeses and better bread, but there are other things such as sirniki and blini that compensate for it. Omlette was hot an tasty. Piano player makes a very special ambience. Check out also very friendly and I am sure I will come again if the possibility will arise. The only negative thing is the turn down service. The rooms are perfectely clean on arrival, but in the evening the room maid only leaves chcolaits and goes. No preparation of bed, no curtain donw. Nothing. Generally, many room mades are from central Asian republics and on some occassions even communication in Russian is a bit complicated with them.…
I am very impressed that Savoy Moscow, voluntarily agreed to cancel my booking and refund in full, due to my flight being cancelled. I will definitely book with your hotel again, once travel restrictions are lifted.
We’ve stayed at Savoy a few times due to its location, room comfort, style. Still very good but some bullet points: * no tea/coffee making facility in room but you can ask for it * no iron/ironing board, and it’s not listed as available, but you can ask for it and it arrives. * junior suite 212 has 3 windows overlooking some other structure, so no view. Not a problem for us on this trip, but do check in advance if it matters to you. * very comfortable bed * breakfast room is really nice with a pianist and fish in a fountain.
We enjoyed our 4 night stay in this beautiful hotel. Clean, beautifully decorated for Christmas, all the facilities in a castle - like building. There is doorman always to open the doors for you, as well as umbrellas available. The reception staff were always amiable, helpful and ready to help with directions and to connect to wifi (In Russia you have to have a local number to connect to Wifi.
Hotel Savoy is very nice, coasy, enaf small hotel. Very nice staff at hotel. Nice rooms, good service. Normaly I visit Moscow 10 times per year. Try stay this hotel as often as it’s possible. Very good breckfast. Real luxury hotel.
