The gym, sauna and jacuzzi are all open 24 hours a day free of charge, and the hotel also has a bureau de change, an ATM machine, and two meeting rooms, each of which can accommodate 10 people.

A member of the Epoque Hotels, Avantgarde Hotels and Small Elegant Hotels networks, the Golden Apple houses 92 guest rooms, including two apartments, in a 7-storey 19th Century building. The hotel is part of the Utell Hotels & Resorts group and when it opened, in 2004, was Moscow's first boutique hotel, designed by Canadian architect Raphael Shafir, who saw fit to combine the hotel's traditional exterior with a modern interior. In the lobby there is a large golden apple (from which the hotel gets its name) big enough to sit inside! From here, a staircase leads down to the lower ground floor, which houses a gym, sauna and jacuzzi, all of which are open 24 hours a day and can be used free of charge.
The guest rooms at the Golden Apple are divided into three categories, namely standard (215 sq ft), superior (248 sq ft) and deluxe (269 sq ft), none of which are suitable for disabled guests. Carpeted corridors lead to the stylish, modern rooms, which are also carpeted. The decor consists of a painting adorning the papered walls and the complimentary apples (of the green, rather than gold variety!) are another nice touch. The rooms have a king-size bed, a desk, satellite television (broadcasting 34 channels), individual air conditioning, a minibar-refrigerator, an electronic safe (free of charge), a telephone and WiFi Internet access (at additional cost). Room service is also available 24 hours a day at no additional cost, and whilstsome of the rooms overlook the road below, others look onto a quieter courtyard. The bathrooms consist of a shower, a bathrobe, slippers, a magnifying mirror, hospitality products, a hair dryer and a toilet, and the superior rooms have both a bathtub and a separate fixed-head shower. Deluxe rooms have the luxury of two different views and even a Nespresso coffee machine!
The 'à la carte' restaurant at the Golden Apple can accommodate up to 58 diners and is open from 7:00am right through to midnight, serving excellent Russian and international cuisine in stylish surroundings. There is also a separate room where guests can enjoy a cigar or a brandy...or both. The Apple Bar in the lobby is open 24 hours a day and can accommodate 48 people. Sports fan will be pleased to hear that it also boasts two large television screens where various sporting events are shown. The bar serves cocktails, as well as tapas and sushi, and a live DJ provides the music every Tuesday and Saturday.
