The Swissotel Krasnye Holmy is an upmarket hotel housed in a 34 floor, 460ft-high skyscraper overlooking the Moscow River and it is primarily geared towards a business clientele. Its best assets are its gourmet restaurant, spa and swimming pool, though the 'piece de resistance' is the panoramic bar, perched up on the roof like a flying saucer, where you can relax with a cocktail as you enjoy 360░ panoramic views over Moscow- unforgettable!

    Location 3.5 /10

    The hotel is located in a business district on the banks of the Moscow River, at 52 Kosmodamianskaya in the south-east of the city. It stands just outside Moscow's ring road, near to Paveletskaya underground station, the Moscow station from which Cityexpress trains depart every 30 minutes for Domodedovo international airport, 45 minutes away. Paveletskaya station is also connected to lines 2 and 5 of the undergound and is just two stops from the city centre. Sheremetyevo 2 International Airport is about 16 mi away, with a transfer time of around an hour, whilst Domodedovo International Airport is located some 28 mi south-west.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The spacious (over 320 sq ft) guest rooms at the Swissotel Krasnye Holmy are all different but all very comfortable and feature sober and minimalist ultra-modern decor (with just a single abstract painting and carpeted floors). Amenities include a large plasma-screen television broadcasting 49 cable channels, very discrete individual air-conditioning, a minibar-refrigerator with tea and coffee-making facilities, a telephone, Wi-Fi and ADSL Internet access (which incurs an additional charge). There is also a free electronic safe, a desk and an armchair. As for the sparkling and spacious bathrooms, they are accessed via a sliding glass door and include a large bathtub complete with a flexible shower-head, a large separate tropical shower, a toilet, a telephone, hospitality products from the Japanese brand Sakura, a professional hair-dryer, bathrobes and slippers, tissues, a heated towel rail and a magnifying mirror. The rooms also have large picture windows offering superb views across Moscow, particularly from those on the higher floors.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Swissotel Krasnye Holmy, a member of the Swiss Swissotel group of hotels, opened in 2005 and houses 233 guest rooms, including 27 suites, in a 34-floor, 460ft-high skyscraper. It is also home to the Amrita spa, which consists of 5 massage and treatment rooms (using products by Italian cosmetics brand Saturnia), a gym, a large, 5ft-deep heated swimming pool complete with waterfalls and hydromassage jets, two saunas (one for men, the other for women) and a jacuzzi. Deck chairs, towels and complimentary bottles of water are also provided, and the spa is open from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    Meals are served as a buffet or a la carte in the main restaurant, the 80-seater CafÚ Swiss, from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. From midday until 1:00 am, however, you can try the Ka´ a la carte gourmet restaurant which serves French cuisine with an Asian twist, prepared under the watchful eye of Michelin starred French chef Daniel Chambon. The stylish chairs, crockery and crystal glassware are very much in keeping with this beautiful 64-seater dining hall, which even has an aquarium full of crayfish, lobsters, crabs and other crustaceans. The Lightbar in the lobby is also open from 7:00 am to 1:00 am and serves a variety of home-made pastries and macaroons from the kitchens of French chef FrÚdÚric Andrieu, but if it's cocktails you're after, head for the City Space, a flying saucer-like bar on the roof of the hotel that offers 360░ panoramic views across Moscow and serves the best cocktails in town (the Transsiberian Express comes highly recommended!). The bar, which opens at 5:00 pm, was listed among the top ten bars in the world in 2008 by the Bartender's Book, and a DJ provides music here until 3:00 am.
