Two of them -Twins Garden and Artes-Chef's Table got the prestigious two stars whereas the rest 8 - one star. The Michelin guide also included a number of other interesting restaurants and cafes of Moscow though not granted the stars but worth visiting and dining.

The hotel is located close to the Three railway stations square - so it is convenient to stay here after or prior the trip to St Petersburg by the train leaving from Leningradsky station nearby. The hotel has 268 rooms including Suites, "Galerie" restaurant, "Imperial" cafe, fitness centre and a number of spacious conference rooms.

MoscowDo you know how may towers there are in the Kremlin wall? - 20. Almost all of them were built in late 15th century. They are different in shape and height. The highest is Trinity Tower (80 m) - the main entrance for the visitors to the Kremlin grounds. The smallest and also the youngest built in 1680 is Tzar Tower overlooking the Red Square. 5 of them are crowned by red ruby stars that substituted in 1937 the double-headed eagles, symbol of the Romanov dynasty. Spasskaya (Saviour's) tower is the main entrance for officilas and is famous for its clock/chimes. The chimes sound marks every hour and the start of the new year and has become the symbol of Moscow and Russia.
