The name of Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow has always been associated with Moscow's vibrant history and the main attractions of the Russian capital.
Located in the heart of Moscow, the hotel offers a picturesque view of the Kremlin, Red Square and Pokrovsky Cathedral. The inimitable image of the hotel makes Baltschug one of the capital's 'calling cards' for tourists visiting Moscow.
The historic façade dates from 1898, when the two-storey house standing on the site was rebuilt by the architect A.V. Ivanov into a solid building with corner towers topped with spires. A restaurant was opened on the ground floor, and the upper floors were used as artists' studios. The view from these studios of the Moskvoretsky Bridge, the Kremlin and St Basil's Cathedral has become one of the most recognisable images of the capital, and today the same view impresses hotel guests, leaving lasting memories of their time spent in Moscow.
After the revolution in 1917, the building housed the offices of various organisations, in 1928 the Novomoskovskaya Hotel was opened, which later became a hostel for the People's Commissariat for Foreign Affairs, and in 1955 it was reopened as the Bucharest Hotel. On 1 October 1992, after several years of reconstruction, Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow opened, and a new chapter in the history of the large and hospitable home started.
Today, the hotel offers spacious rooms and suites with views of the Kremlin; the Baltschug Grill restaurant, the Café Kranzler and the Lobby Lounge bar; a health club and a beauty centre; and 12 modern conference rooms.
