Average time to visit

The main tourist season is between June and August, when the weather is the warmest. Standout seasons to visit Moscow are late spring (May or June) and early autumn (September or October), when the city’s parks are filled with flowering trees or colourful leaves.

The deepest, darkest part of winter is undeniably cold but if you are prepared it can be an adventure. Furs and vodka keep people warm and snow-covered landscapes are picturesque. A solid snowpack covers the ground from November to March. The city gets fired up to ring in the New Year, when Muscovites emerge from their warm homes into the winter night for free concerts and fireworks.

The Hotel Baltschug Kempinski is one of the most famous landmarks of central Moscow. Founded in the 1900s, it has undergone a tasteful and attractive renovation. Right across the river from Red Square, the location is ideal.

The elegant 5 star Baltschug Hotel is excellently located on the banks of the Moskva river, within walking distance of Red Square and all the major sights of central Moscow, as well as the designer stores of the 'GUM' shopping arcade.

With standards of service which befit a Kempinski Hotel, and as member of "Leading Hotels of the World", the Kempinski Baltschug Hotel is one of the best luxury hotels in the city, and has been frequented by a long list of dignitaries and celebrities since the fall of communism. Many of the rooms offer spectacular views across the river to the domes of St.Basil's Cathedral.

The hotel offers a range of deluxe suites, from spacious Junior Suites to the Princess Suite, which boasts a large tastefully designed sitting room with views over Red Square.


Children are welcome to come and stay at Hotel Baltschug Kempinski. However, there are no specific child facilities available at the hotel. Babysitting can be arranged upon request.


The Baltschug Grill and Cafe Kranzler have reopened following a major facelift in 2012. The fine dining option, Restaurant Baltschug, offers classical fine dining with the added excitement of the Russian table – lobster ravioli, prime beef fillet, Osietra caviar, Beef Stroganoff… There is a choice selection of more than 80-wines-by glass, live piano music, and every course is accentuated by magnificent views of the Kremlin and St Basil’s Cathedral.

The Spa at Baltschug offers a range of health and beauty treatments. There is a modern gym and a 70 square metre indoor pool for guests.



Anne Bamber (Staff)

Kempinski Balschug offers good sized, extremely comfortable rooms and most have been recently renovated. Whilst the hotel is located further away from the main city centre sights just over the river, it does mean that from the river-facing rooms you get a wonderful uninterupted view of St Basil's Cathedral. My room was at the side of the hotel but I still had great views of the river and Kremlin.


James Ferguson (Staff)

The views from the Suites and Deluxe Rooms on the upper floors offer the best views in Moscow: definitely worth paying the supplement!
