The new glamour hotels in Russia

Russian hotels regularly top “world’s most expensive” lists, so it should come as no surprise that rooms across the country take luxury to new levels. Here is one of the most over-the-top experiences that money can buy in Russia.

Note that the most expensive hotel in Moscow is The Ritz-Carlton where a standard room costs from RUB 29,000 (US$931).

Formerly the Nevskij Palace Hotel, 5-star  the Corinthia reopened in 2009 following the extensive restoration of two adjoining 19th-century buildings, now home to suites and executive rooms.

Guest rooms and suites were given a contemporary retouch and now come with polished blonde-wood floors, colorful throws and artwork spotlighting St. Petersburg; some suites also come with private balconies and round-the-clock butler service.

In a nod to the building’s history, the hotel is also home to a small museum paying homage to the Samoilov family of actors who lived here in the 1800s.

Rooms start at RUB 5,890 (US$189) per night (US$189) per night.
