Ideally located a stone's throw away from the Red Square and the Kremlin, the Metropol hotel is an institution in Moscow - a listed historical monument of the Art Nouveau style, with frescoes and, in particular, a superb stained glass roof in the restaurant hall. This charming hotel also has a pool and a spa.
The Metropol hotel is in the heart of Moscow, a stone's throw away from the Red Square and almost across the street from the Bolshoi Theatre on 1/4 Teatralny Proezd. There are several very close-by underground stations: Okhotny Ryad, Kuznetsky Most, Teatralnaya (the nearest) and Lubyanka. Sheremetyevo 2 international airport is located about 20 mi away (a journey of approximately one hour). Domodedovo international airport is 34 mi south-east of the hotel, allow therefore an hour and a half for transfers.
The Metropol hotel is ideally located if you wish to explore the Red Square and the Kremlin. Gourmets will enjoy the refined cuisine as much as the hall it is served in. Indeed, what better way is there to top off a day out and about than by relaxing at the spa or in the pool. WiFi internet access is available for a fee, throughout the hotel. Three computers are also provided for guests, but there is a fee for internet access. A foreign exchange service is available in the lobby. This hotel has a gym with state-of-the-art apparatus open from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Room service is available 24 hours a day and guests have free access to the hotel car park.
Listed as a historical monument, the superb 6 storey Metropol building dates back to 1901 when it was a theatre; it now holds a total of 363 guest rooms, including 72 suites. Renovated in 2001, it has a superb original wooden lift designed in the Art Nouveau style. The rectangular indoor pool (4mx6m) is 1m50 deep and heated to 26°C. The spa houses two large saunas (one for women, one for men) and two massage rooms. It is a good place to come and relax, with its massage rooms, a hairdresser, beauty salon, and an ultra modern gym. Between dips in the pool, you can lounge on a deckchair fitted with a comfortable mattress. This part of the hotel also houses the gym bar and a television lounge.
