The hotel is located directly opposite red square - you can get to st basils cathedral, the armoury and Lenin's mausoleum in a matter of minutes. There is also a metro station entrance on the footpath of the hotel which was convenient for us. The rooms were classic but nice. Good air con and wifi. There is also a pool, sauna and steam room on the top level of the hotel. The concierge was very helpful and staff overall were friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here.

This was a great hotel, with a wonderful location just across from Red Square. Staff were unfailingly polite from the maids to the doormen and reception staff. Wifi worked perfectly and room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the view over to the Kremlin also great. Thank you!

For several years I have stayed at this hotel when travelling to Moskau. I love hotels with a lot of history and the National certainly has a lot of it. Located adjacent to the Kremlin the attractions around Red Square (Bolschoi, Kremlin, GUM department store) are all just a few steps away.
The rooms have a classic design, not overloaded but with a nice somber atmosphere. They are very quiet even if facing the busy streets. Everything is clean, the service is efficient but not heartwarming. Having stayed there for over 15 years the hotel also keeps up with the times and I have not seen anything run down. My favourite place is the restaurant on the first floor (also the breakfast place). It has very large windows with an unobstructed view on the Kremlin and Manege Square.
The hotel is a little bit on the expensive side, but if you book well in advance they have good deals (it is managed by Starwood) and you can economize on food: the Manege Square
shopping center on the other side of the street has an excellent food court with well known and less well known names for the western visitor at acceptable price levels. But its core point is
the location: there are few hotels this close to the historic center.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the streets - much more to see than the courtyard and the noise insulation...

We wanted an old-school, traditional, charming Russian hotel and Hotel National delivered! Our room was spacious, well-decorated, and clean. The location was perfection (our room had a view of the square). And, we were impressed with the staff. My friend needed a BlackBerry charger and the bellboy offered to go out and purchase one for us. Breakfast was pretty good as well, and had a nice view. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location across from Red Square can't be beat. We had beautiful views each morning at breakfast. And the staff went out of their way to meet any needs you might have. We had a comfortable spacious room and had a fantastic night's sleep every evening.
Marina and Julia were extremely helpful at the Concierge desk. They helped us plan our activities and gave us excellent advice on where to eat and where to go.
We will be back and there is no doubt that we will be staying at the National Hotel!!

The National is a beautiful old building situated across the road from Red Square and the Kremlin. Was a little concerned when first booking the hotel that it might be a little noisy, being so close to a major tourist attraction, however the double glazed windows ensured a great sleep. HAd a king size bedroom which was well appointed, with double doors at the room entrance (giving extra privacy) and high ceilings. The bathrooms were also the size of some rooms that i've stayed elsewhere in Europe. The location means that you can walk pretty much anywhere, with an entrance to the Metro right out the front. Plenty of nice eating options in easy walking distance - we didn't actually eat at the hotel, instead venturing out and about for meals.
