Baltschug Kempinski

The very mention of ‘Moscow’ immediately evokes an allure of mystery and a feel exoticness that few European cities still hold, and the Baltschug Kempinski Moscow is the perfect place to start your journey in the alluring Russian capital.  Ideally situated in the Moscow city center, near the Kremlin and the Moskva River, the Baltschug Kempinski Moscow is just a five minute walk away from the iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral and historic Red Square. The hotel’s classic façade dates back to 1898, but inside you’ll find a fully modern luxury environment with refined décor, large public spaces, and all of the contemporary amenities.

The accommodations at the Baltschug Kempinski in Moscow are fit for a czar, and feature commanding views of The Kremlin, St. Basel’s Cathedral, and The Red Square. Visitors can quickly get used to thoughtful touches like complimentary overnight shoe-shining service, free evening turn-down service, and complimentary mineral water that is replenished daily.  All rooms also feature air conditioning, satellite television, high-speed WI-FI internet access, direct dial satellite phones, and even in house mobile phones that will save you the hassle of trying to keep in touch with the rest of your party while going out on your own adventures in Moscow.

Soft ambient light envelopes the elegant Princess Suite, designed by Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent, a relative of the last Russian czar.  Light beige, green, ochre, and cream tones prevail in this three-bedroom suite that contains richly upholstered furniture, fine wool carpets, and comfortable sofas.  The florally-themed Princess Suite exudes an aura of dignity and wealth, while overlooking the Moskva River.  The Linley Design Suite is outfitted in grand Italian marble and custom-made sustainable hardwood furniture and features a glorious chandelier, a spacious bathroom, a plush living room, and sensational views of Moscow.  Meanwhile, The Executive Suite features a large bedroom and living room, a corner view of Red Square, and the Moskva River embankment, and two large plasma screen TVs stylishly integrated into the walls.  The flower and fruit arrangement is replenished daily.

The Baltschug Health Club gives guests the chance to exercise on state of the art equipment, swim in the gorgeous indoor pool, relax in the sauna, the whirlpool, and the Jacuzzi, get a massage from expert hands, and even catch some rays in the solarium while imbibing in some freshly squeezed drinks from the juice bar.  In a city known for its frigid winter climate, the Caribbean Experience Packages at the Baltschug Health Club will briefly have you feeling as if you’re vacationing in St. Barth’s rather than Moscow.  These spa packages include a relaxing and soothing face treatment (cleansing, peeling, mask, mango butter crème) that inclues a massage of the face, a body wrap with cucumber mousse (green clay, cucumber mousse, ivy gel, menthol oil, and avocado oil), and a personalized nutrition consultation.

Guests who choose to dine within the Baltschug Kempinski have a choice of venues. "Restaurant Baltschug", which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, is known for its special Sunday brunches. In the lobby itself is the hotel's Lounge Bar, where guests may partake of a complimentary Early Bird Breakfast from 5:00am-7:00am and High Afternoon Tea. Bar Baltschug is a cozy place to meet friens and partners, where you can taste over 100 varieties of vodkas from all over the world.

Baltschug concierges are proud to be founding members of the ‘Golden Keys of Concierges,’ the Russian branch of the esteemed international union ‘Les Clefs d’Or’.  As such, they can arrange for tickets at the Bolshoi or any of Moscow’s other celebrated theatre or concert programs, or direct you towards the Baltschug Kempinski’s very own guided tour of the Kremlin.  This famous building was the heart of the Soviet government for over 70 years, and today continues its role as the stronghold of Russian politics by serving as the center of the Russian Federation.  Nearby is an imposing building of a different kind, St. Basil’s Cathedral, one of the most beautiful buildings in the world.  Built by Ivan the Terrible in 1561 to commemorate victory over the Khanate of Kazan, this multi-tented, onion-domed church is perhaps the most widely-recognized building in Russia, and indeed serves as a sort of symbol for Moscow and all of Russia.  Although it may come as a surprise, Moscow is a city full of magnificent cathedrals, like The Archangel Cathedral, which dates back to 1333 and served as the coronation, wedding, and burial grounds for the czars for hundreds of years, Annunciation Cathedral, Assumption Cathedral, The Church of St. John The Warrior, and dozens more.

Look at decades’ worth of Soviet propaganda posters at the Contemporary History Museum, or see Yuri Gargarin’s spacesuit at the The Cosmonautics MuseumThe Glinka Museum of Musical Culture houses over 3,000 different musical instruments from all corners of the world, including many exotic ones that you’d be hard-pressed to see or hear anywhere else.  History buffs will love reliving the Cold War at the KGB Museum, as well as the embalmed remains of the Soviet Union’s founder at Lenin’s Tomb.  See rare Siberian tigers at the Moscow Zoo, or enjoy exhibits at the Moscow House of Photography and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.

Although it would have been unthinkable just two decades ago, Moscow now is the home to upscale stores and high-end shopping and fashion that rivals any city in Europe.  There’s also a vibrant and exciting nightlife scene that has something for everyone.

Veer off of the beaten European path and visit Moscow, a city cloaked in mystery where history is around every corner, and where the bright future is evidenced by the world-class shopping and nightlife.  The Baltschug Kempinski Moscow is the finest luxury hotel in Moscow, and is fully integrated into this fascinating metropolis.
