Stepping into Mercure Hotel from Bakhrushina ul. is like stepping out of 19th century Moscow and into a snazzy modern setting slightly reminiscent of Kubrick’s Space Odyssey. This design hotel features stylishly decorated rooms with all amenities (including robes and small kettles and coffee machines) necessary for absolute comfort and some open up a romantic view of Moscow’s rooftops. The spacious suites were certainly made to impress and satisfy the most discerning tastes with fine touches such as imported Arabic tiles in the showers and silk wall decorations. Central yet tranquil location, just a few minutes walk from Moscow’s Paveletskaya Station and the vibrant Pyatnitskaya ul. with restaurants, bars and shops.
