“THE ONE CLOSER TO THE KREMLIN”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

It is a big luxury hotel with a smile. Yours that is. Everyone of the people working there is smiling that put you on a very jovial mood. The Moscowites don't speak foreign languages and it is hard to find one smiling when you ask them something. The rooms are huge. Especially the club floors that are 8th floor and up are fantastic but with no view. Ours looked to a patio with a very beautiful sculpture. The bath rooms are fantastic with rain style showers with amenities that are very high class. The breakfast is the, you can skip lunch kind, with a very big and great variety. NOW: Don't forget to visit the 12th floor Q2 bar. The view to the kremlin and Stalin's seven sisters (seven high rises that he put up for prestige and politburo) is with one word stunning. But there will always be an instance that they will not let you forget that you are the new kid on the block. When the bar is nearly empty, the waitress will tell you that all tables are reserved from a week back and show you the worst table in the bar. Don't give in. Do like you are leaving and mumble that you are a hotel guest. THAN a very beautiful and leggy maitre'd will approach you and show you to a very much better table. But don't forget, there isn't a door that a smile would not open. Luxury does not come cheap. Be ready to cough $900 a night. You should arrange for your daily excursions in advance or be ready to pay really big bucks. The concierge (it can happen to anyone, so I am writing that as a joke) when we asked the address of Noyan Tun restaurant (an Armenian restaurant that has a branch in Armenia as well) wrote us the address in Yerevan in Armenia. We had a good laugh going up and down the Nikolskaya street asking everyone about this restaurant and getting blank stares. Be good.

My Russian colleagues booked the hotel for me, using their Corporate rates - otherwise the hotel would simply be overpriced. The Ritz-Carlon is perfectly located, at the end of the Tverskaya, neighboring the Red Square. The hotel offers the service and facilities of a great luxury hotel, there is nothing to criticize - what also means, that there is no real character within. The hotel could be located in every city of the world.

Stayed here for 3 nights with club room floor. Worth the extra cost of club room floor as restaurants very pricey in Moscow. Great service, comfy beds and spacious rooms. Within walking distance of kremlin and red square. Quiet rooms too.

The Ritz can only really be compared to one hotel in Moscow and that's the Hyatt (although pretty soon the Four Seasons will provide a little competition). The Ritz is lovely. I would have given it 4.5 stars if I could. The rooms are variable; I prefer the club room with a view to the superior rooms. And the executive rooms are very nice with a lot of additional space. The view from some of the rooms, the club lounge and the O2 terrace is fabulous. Service is fairly good though not everyone in the hotel speaks English very well (which is where the Ritz loses out to the Hyatt). Service and food are the comparative let-downs. There are very limited options for both room service and restaurant, with the only exception being Novikov - which isn't technically a part of the hotel itself but is situated at the lobby level. Hotel food options aside from this are seriously lacking in choice and very overpriced for what they are. Getting your car to the front entrance can also be a chore - but the advantage over the Hyatt is not having to negotiate the traffic on Neglinayya Street. Lobby areas are nice but can get crowded with tourists, etc. Breakfast is far better at the Hyatt but at the Ritz the spa, gym and pool are incomparable. Overall, this is a luxury hotel with real class in a perfect location close to tourist attractions, restaurants, the metro, etc. Of the two I would perhaps choose the Hyatt but that is as a business guest who has been travelling to Moscow for many years. As a tourist, go for the Ritz.

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Everything according to expectation on a five star in a metropol.

Great terasse on 12th flor with magnificent view in the evening. Staff friendly service minded.

We used conference facilities on 2nd flor and where happy with that.

Breakfast very well. Lunch a bit below expectations.

I spent over a week here on a business trip, and love this hotel...Great location, wonderful restaurants and of course amazing attention to every detail! Walking distance to Red Square, a under ground mall is nearby. Make sure you visit the roof top restaurant/lounge, it has an amazing view....Interestingly enough, I passed by a McDonalds and noticed that alcohol was being served, not just beer and wine, but mixed drinks?!....go figure?!

We did an extended weekend and were busy everyday. Luxury and spoiled. Easy walking to ballet, kremlin, red square and shops. O2 bar is delight. Loved the shisha. Couples spa was just wonderful after a day out in the winter cold.

Concierge are very helpful.

Room Tip: Everything we expected.
