Comfortable, modern rooms occupy this renovated prerevolutionary mansion and a modern eight-story annex, complemented by nice views and friendly service. Dark-blue furniture contrasts smartly with the yellow-fabric-covered walls, which are lined with watercolors. A fully stocked—and free!—minibar is a pleasant extra. Staff is friendly and helpful, views of the picturesque Moskva River and New Savior Monastery are splendid, and the on-site Stockholm restaurant, serving
traditional Scandinavian and Russian cuisine, is a big plus.
