Lux hotel next to Red Square
Posted Sep 11, 2016
Repeat visit to this charming art nouveau hotel. Very very central - Red Square 200 yards. Only downside of this, it puts hotel within security cordon for major city events, so access sometimes restricted.
Room rate was so keen, it made breakfast buffet seem expensive. But you have to experience it at least once: since if you take Moscow vacations frankly you're not banking on going to heaven, so enjoy the harp playing as you scrum your eggs in the magnificent gilded hall.
Moscow now seems more relaxed, welcoming & outfacing, compared to our 2005 visit.
