Stayed for 2 nights at the Baltschug. Like always everything perfect, typical Kempinski style! Room, food, service was perfect. Next time I come to Moscow I bring my wife, she will love it. Not so sure about the cold weather. Definitely recommend the Baltschug for business meetings.

The hotel is situated just across the river from Red Square and thus is in walking distance of the main sights of Moscow. My room had recently been refurbished and thus was in a very good condition. The view to Red Square and The Great Kremlin Palace was amazing. I suppose you cannot really have a better one. However, I... More

Lovely hotel but room was very small. We had booked a grand deluxe room so goodness knows what the standard rooms were like. The staff were very helpful.

The hotel is seriously outdated. The price is completely unfair for the service. The conditioning and heating service do not work properly, so the try to put oil heaters in the rooms. The only advantage might be a location, but it does not matter after a sleepless freezing night in an old room ...

Hotel is centrally located just across the river from the Red Square / Kremlin. In truth I found this hotel a little old and in need of an upgrade when compared to the Ritz Carlton.

Beautiful hotel, very plush. Staff made us feel really special! The breakfast buffet was incredible, so much choice. Have stayed in the Waldorf Astoria in New York...... Kempinski was by far the best!
