Cheap Hotels in Russia
If you’re considering a stay in one of the luxurious hotels in Russia, there are a few things to know. First of all, it’s important to remember that not all hotels are the same. Some may refuse to accept you or charge you more than a Russian. Others may only offer the most luxurious rooms. Generally, you won’t experience as many problems as Russians. If you’re planning a luxury trip to Russia, you should be prepared for a bit of culture shock!
During the Soviet era, the Russia Hotel became popular among tourists. Many films were shot inside the hotel’s luxurious rooms. During its lifetime, it hosted more than 10 million guests, including world-famous figures such as the Tsar. Despite being a modern structure when it was constructed, the Russia Hotel was a glaring block in the city’s view of the Kremlin and Red Square. However, the hotel was so famous that it was demolished in 2006, and the dismantling started in March 2006.
Many Western hotel chains have a limited presence in Russia. Starbucks and McDonald’s have stopped doing business in the country. Likewise, Skyscanner and Kayak no longer display travel information to Russia. Tripadvisor, which used to sell advertising for Russian hotels, has also stopped doing business in the country. Fortunately, Google and Trivago are still in the country, and you don’t have to go through a long and difficult process to book a hotel in Russia.
Another notable hotel in Russia is the Rossiya Hotel. This building, originally planned to be the eighth Sister of the Seven Sisters, was built using the foundations of a failed skyscraper project. The architect, Dmitry Chechulin, suggested building a hotel on the same site. This resulted in a world-famous hotel: the Russia Hotel. Upon opening in 1954, the hotel was the largest in the world with 3182 rooms and a capacity of five thousand guests. It was also listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest hotel in Europe.
