The so called Seven Sisters of Moscow are arguably the most famous Stalinist buildings. To me, they evoke the Soviet Union and are quintessentially Russian. Well, the Hilton Moscow occupies the former Leningradskaya Hotel, designed in the 50’s to be Moscow’s premier luxury hotel.
The lobby is outstanding, with the biggest lamp I have ever seen. Be sure to ask for a room in one of the top floors, all corridors and halls still boost the original cherry wood panels. A full view of the city doesn’t hurt either. It’s great when a hotel chain offers the same high standard of service anywhere in the world, while still managing to convey a local touch. Hilton delivered!
