From Russia with Love: Moscow is a beautiful city, full of culture and romance. And for those who appreciate architecture, Moscow will blow you away.
Located in on of the city’s Stalin towers is the Hilton Moscow Leningradskaya Hotel, situated close to Moscow’s major tourist attractions such as the Red Square and the Kremlin.
The exterior of the building alone is astounding. These days we’re all so used to steel and glass buildings that we don’t take a moment to appreciate the beauty of architecture from the past.
Once inside, I was whisked away to decades in the past with the grand and opulent interior.
With large chandeliers, the tall and imposing marble pillars, and intricate ceiling fixtures, this property will impress upon you that its a one-of-a-kind Hilton property that you’ll ever find.
Check-in was swift, and after all that I’d seen from the lobby alone, I was looking forward to seeing how my room would look like.
A stark contrast from what I’d seen in the lobby, the room was very modern, typical of other Hilton properties worldwide.
There was a large work desk and a chest of drawers to store my personal effects. The furnishings of marble and wood with gold trimmings served as a reminder of the grand architecture of the building.
There were just enough lamps to illuminate the room at night, but in the day, the huge windows allowed for lots of natural lighting.
The bathroom was pretty standard, with a shower facility only and no bathtub.
For fitness enthusiasts, you don’t have to worry as all guests have access to the gym and a heated indoor pool. There is also a dry sauna for use too.
Moscow has many rooftop restaurants and bars from which you can enjoy the beautiful sunset, like I did. With a city so rich in culture and history, its offerings will keep you completely immersed.
