Petroff Palace is a real castle, a palace built by Catherine the Great from 1776 to 1780 to host royals coming from St. Petersburg to Moscow. Through its over 200 years of history the hotel was burnt (no other than by Napoleon), rebuilt, used as military headquarters, a museum and educational institution, and turned back into a luxury hotel following extensive renovations.
What else is there to say, we stayed at a palace in Moscow, a very Russian palace. And the service? Top Russian quality. Food was superb too. One day we didn’t even leave the palace, spending all day long going to the spa, eating, and just being part of this piece of history.
