Soviet luxury at the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow

Opened in 1957 as a flagship of Soviet architecture in the heart of the Russian capital, the recent refurbishment of this magnificent hotel has combined modern luxury and comfort with a sound understanding of the building's important heritage.

Recently named Europe’s Leading Luxury Business Hotel by World Travel Awards, the Radisson Royal Hotel is a landmark in the heart of Moscow. The former Hotel Ukraina is eminently state-of-the-art, although not exactly new as it was built between 1953 and 1957 as part of a project of high rise construction by Stalin known as the 'Seven Sisters'. The largest European hotel of its time, the elegant neoclassical complex rises to a height of 206 metres. Today, after a complete renovation, the Radisson Royal Hotel boasts 497 rooms (including 38 apartments), seven gourmet restaurants serving international cuisine, a Spa & Wellness Centre of 3,500 square metres, 13 meeting rooms and a fully equipped business centre.
