If you ever wanted to feel like your on the set of a James Bond film, welcome to the Lotte Hotel Moscow. The experience starts once you walk through the front doors where the lobby is lavishly decorated with large marble columns and floors, and an impressive chandelier that catches your attention.
As you make your way to your room, you can't help but notice the open center which has leaves hanging off the railings and opens up to a huge skylight looking down at an atrium garden.
I stayed in a Superior Room. The front entrance and washroom have marble floors and the bedroom is nicely carpeted. A mirror at the front entrance running from floor to ceiling is always a nice touch. Slightly on the traditional side, the rooms are a decent size and comes with a king size bed, desk, sitting area, large flat screen, and a sizable walk-in closet. The washroom is large and comes equipped with both bathtub and open rainforest shower, as well as heated toilet seats and an electronic systems that controls a bidet. The shower and toilet are situated on both sides of the bathroom vanity and divided by glass doors. The complimentary slippers are like pillows for your feet.
The breakfast was good and diverse. Juices are freshly squeezed as expected and offers the standard European cold dishes as well as warm and cold classic breakfast items.
The fitness center goes above and beyond what a normal hotel offers. The weight room is enclosed in glass and has everything you can ask for in a regular gym, albeit a hotel. Equipment is top notch. The pool area is very nice - large pool, jacuzzi and a ceiling that changes colour and has little lights that resemble stars. The change room is sleek and has digital lockers. I haven't seen many change rooms that are as luxurious as this. Both the fitness room and pool are free to guests.
All in all, many will think that the Hotel is slightly over the top, but that is what truly makes staying at the Lotte an experience in and of itself. A reasonable value for a hotel such as this, centrally located, attentive staff and attention to detail makes this a worthwhile stay for those who expect high standards out of their hotel, and for others who want to feel pampered a little more than usual.
