Kempinski Moika 22 Hotel
On February 22, 2009 the Kempinski Moika 22 St.Petersburg Hotel will celebrate three years since its opening day.
The hotel is located in the very heart of Russian cultural capital. The renovated facade of the 1853 building is an example of classical St.Petersburg architecture, while the interior decoration combines splendid history and modern comfort.
In 2006 the hotel was listed among Hot Spot Hotels, the most popular hotels selected by Conde Nast Traveler magazine. This high status hasn’t yet been awarded to Russian hotels. In 2008, two years since the hotel opening, US Conde Nast Traveler magazine included the Kempinski Moika 22 Hotel into Top-100 Hotels of 2008 independent list. The Kempinski Moika 22 is the only Russian hotel recorded in this list, which is based upon public survey.
The Kempinski Moika 22 Hotel is housed in a mansion designed by Basil von Witte in 1853 during the reign of Nicholas I. The classical facade of the building has been retained, while the interior has been entirely reconstructed and decorated with antiques of the period. This elegant building is situated on the Moika river embankment, one of the many rivers and canals, which make up the historical and cultural heart of the city, known as the Golden Triangle. The hotel faces one of the city’s most famous sights - Palace Square. The hotel is just several minutes’ walk from Nevsky avenue and all major sights and shopping areas of the city. Pulkovo-2 International Airport is within 30 minutes’ drive. More about the hotel
