Lotte Hotel Moscow

Opulence along Novinskiy Boulevard

As the first international property for South Korea-based luxury hospitality group Lotte Hotels & Resorts, Lotte Hotel Moscow makes quite the initial impression.

A stately marble lobby complete with gold-trimmed onyx columns and a grand central staircase lets you know immediately that this a place of decadence, and where the finer things — like a Balinese-themed spa, cuisine from acclaimed international chefs and one of Russia’s largest suites — come standard.

The opulent ambiance continues throughout the property: caviar and champagne come with afternoon tea, all accommodations boast bathtubs and the breakfast buffet features more than 100 delicacies to delight any palate. Though indulgence is all but guaranteed at this Moscow hotel, simple pleasures haven’t been forgotten. Chocolate delights are still presented during turn-down, and service is always offered with a smile.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Enjoy an ultra-regal retreat when you check into Lotte Hotel Moscow’s Royal Suite, one of Russia’s largest. The 5,274-square-foot accommodation pampers with its own steam room, a whirlpool tub overlooking Moscow’s skyline, an open bar, a piano, a private library and winter garden.
  • The Moscow property’s opulent interior was imagined by renowned design firms Hirsch Bedner Associates and Wilson & Associates using a blend of classic and contemporary elements like marble, natural woods and polished gold surfaces. Striking Asian-inspired artworks dot the public areas in homage to the hotel’s roots.
  • The sprawling, 16,145-square-foot Mandala Spa is a wellness haven for Balinese treatments featuring renowned products like British skincare brand Elemis and Swiss cosmetics line Bellefontaine. Be sure to arrive early to indulge in the hydrotherapy facilities, including a whirlpool, silk bath, hammam, saunas and 2019-opened Russian banya (sauna).
  • Perched in the heart of downtown Moscow, the luxury hotel occupies a prime location on Novinskiy Boulevard. While city highlights such as Red Square and the Kremlin require a short drive, other top attractions like beloved Arbat Street and Lotte Plaza mall are just outside your front door.
  • Need a quick blow-out or manicure before a night out? Lotte Hotel Moscow is home to an outpost of Italian beauty salon Aldo Coppola.

Things to Know

  • Be sure to look up when strolling through the Atrium Garden. Artworks lining the walls are actually reproductions of 17th- and 18th-century Moscow nobility’s coats of arms.
  • The hotel brand is called “Lotte” in honor of the main character ofJohann Wolfgang vonGoethe’s novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther, the favorite book of the Lotte Corporation’s founder.
  • The hotel specializes in weddings. It even has its own Wedding & Event Bureau, which is extremely rare for a Moscow hotel.
  • Book a Club Level room to enjoy access to the third-floor Club Lounge, where five daily meal presentations ensure you never go hungry. During summer, the adjacent terrace provides an exclusive spot to soak up the city’s mild weather.
  • The luxury hotel is home to an underground parking lot, a gratis perk for guests and ideal for avoiding those brutal Russian winters.

The Rooms

  • The Moscow hotel’s 239 rooms and 61 suites are among the city’s largest, starting at more than 450 square feet. Plush headboards, elegant ottomans and marble bathrooms imbue a sense of luxury in even the entry-level Superior Rooms.
  • All accommodations offer bathtubs, a nice perk after a long day of sightseeing in Russia’s capital. Molton Brown or Bulgari amenities ensure you can unwind in style.
  • Most rooms offer classic décor (think dark woods, carved wooden headboards and a burgundy and gold color palette), but Atrium Suites are surprisingly trendy with an olive green accent wall, black-and-white accents and a freestanding soaking tub.

The Restaurants

  • The bright and elegant OVO serves award-winning chef Emanuele Pollini’s contemporary Italian creations. Opt for à la carte selections like smoked mushroom risotto with quail or steamed sea bass with zucchini and mussels, or indulge in a three-, five- or seven-course degustation menu.
