Moscow has some grand hotels, many of which are renovated palaces or me-too business hotels.
That’s not news. But what is news is the Golden Apple Hotel,, built in 2004, and now staking its claim to being the first boutique hotel in this huge city. With a Red Square vicinity location, this apple is definitely modern and minimalistic, yet kitschy. It offers a so-so restaurant and a sauna, with rates from 8,820 RUB and up per night.
