Metropol Hotel

The Metropol Hotel is situated in the very center of the city, just minutes from the city’s most prominent sights, including the Kremlin, Red Square and the Bolshoi Theatre. From the upper windows of the hotel, guests can see not only the glistening domes and star-topped towers of the Kremlin, but the vast expanse of Red Square, famed as the site of numerous Bolshevik demonstrations, Soviet parades and now occasional pop concerts. The Square is flanked by the red and black granite cubes of Lenin's Mausoleum, the brightly-colored onion domes of St. Basil's Cathedral, the celebrated GUM Department Store and the country's central Historical Museum.

Just a few steps from Red Square guests can enjoy the beautiful greenery and fountains of the Alexander Gardens and the plush underground shopping mall of Manezhnaya Square. Directly opposite the Metropol stands the impressive stucco facade of the world-renowned Bolshoy Theatre, the gem of Moscow's performing arts scene and home to the magnificent Bolshoy Ballet. The theatre has an extensive repertoire of breathtaking ballet and opera productions and visitors simply must see a performance before leaving Moscow.
