If you’re heading to Moscow without the help of a tour company or the generosity of a local friend, it has to be a somewhat stressful trying to figure out where to stay or which neighborhood to temporarily call your home away from home.
The capital city of Russia is also the largest city in the country. So you’re right, it’s okay to be just a tad perplexed prior to your travel research. The good thing is, this neighborhood breakdown is quite simple. Most areas in Moscow are fit for residential living, which doesn’t trigger a traveler’s interest anyhow, especially if it’s your first time in Moscow. Thus, it comes down to 5 neighborhoods you need to know.
To make things easier, here are 12 hotels you can choose from. They’re mostly 4-5 star options to ensure a lovely stay for both business and leisure travelers. Just remember, Kremlin is in the center. If all else fails, you can’t go wrong booking a hotel in that central area. Good luck!
