A guilded piece of France in Moscow
Posted Feb 12, 2014
Amazing, hidden-away little hotel of just nine rooms, very central. From the pics showed on the internet, I thought it was a private palace from 1834, sort of, restored to its former glory, but it soon turns out to be a completely new-built place from 2004, inspired by the French Chenonceau castle. Still a very nice experience. Situated in a cosy backstreet, quite calm and comfy. Imagine yourself in a period costume drama set. The breakfast buffet is actually having some original serving bowls from the 19th century. Old silver teapots. Real croissants to die for. Smiling, very helpful staff, ready to compliment you on your Russian even if its really bad. A friendly place for people in love, single people in the need for a comfortable base camp in Moscow and for people who just love guilded interiors.
