The Historic Hotel Sovietsky was fabulous, exactly what we wanted – an imposing Stalinist structure steeped in history of the USSR. It would have been so easy to have booked into a modern hotel with all the services one has come to expect – but do have done so would have meant we missed a priceless opportunity to step back in time.
The ambience of the place is quite breathtaking, the white marble sweeping staircases, the green marble pillars, the wooden panelling along the long corridors and the red carpeting throughout, the large portraits of past leaders, the chandeliers and original lighting.
The twin room was clean and comfortable, a very high ceiling, lots of character from the intricate window and door locks, to the very functional bathroom - Who needs air conditioning when one can open the large wooden windows.
The lounge and restaurant where excellent, valuble free wi-fi (not in the rooms though) and friendly staff. The ‘all you can eat’ buffet breakfast was to die for – omelettes cooked to order, fruit & salad, porridge, meat and cheese, sausage – coffee, tea, orange and apple juice….. and as much black Russian bread and butter as one could eat.
The hotel would not be in the best location for some – but for those with a little sense of adventure it’s perfect. 15 mins walk from the Dinamo Metro Station & 3 stops to Red Square.
Not just a hotel stay BUT an experience to remember
