Newly Renovated Hotel Ukraina

Hotel Ukraina, one of the distinctive Stalin-era high-rises known as the Seven Sisters, has been completely renovated and reopens today under the new name of the Radisson Royal Hotel. Built in 1957, it was the tallest hotel in the world until the Peachtree Plaza Hotel opened in Atlanta, Georgia in 1975.

 

When the hotel changed ownership in 2005, the decision for total renovation was made. With the selling price of $275 million, and the reconstruction project totalling $300 million, it will take 20 to 25 years for the project to pay for itself, reports chief executive of the hotel, Alexei Mikushko.

 

Located in the center of Moscow, the new Radisson Royal Hotel offers every service guests can expect of 5 star luxury accommodations, including gourmet restaurants, conceirge services, boutiques, a complete wellness center, and more. There is even a karaoke bar on the 34th floor beneath the 73 meter spire. Pleasure yachts can also be rented for sightseeing cruises along the Moskva River. There are 505 hotel rooms, and 38 apartments, with a regular room rate starting around $200 (150 euros) per night.

 

The Radisson Royal Hotel Moscow links the unique architectural ensemble of the Stalin era with the best traditions of superior service and comfort. If you're planning a trip to meet some gorgeous girls from Moscow, consider staying a few nights in this classy, historical hotel. For more information, visit the hotel's website.
