Historic Central Moscow Hotel With Cheap Rooms

Ideal Central Moscow Location with Affordable Prices

A perfectly located hotel in Moscow's historic city center, the Budapest Hotel offers you a chance to explore all the cultural highlights of this amazing city within just minutes of leaving your room. The Bolshoi Theatre is just one hundred meters from the hotel, and the world famous Kremlin and Red Square are just five hundred meters away. The area is packed with boutique shops, historic landmarks, cultural buildings, and world class restaurants. For an indulgent meal, try Café Pushkin, where you'll feel like you've stepped into a richly decorated nineteenth century aristocrat's house.

It's not just cultural and historic tourist spots that are plentiful in this part of the city, with Tverskaya street and the Okhotny Ryad shopping centre also within a stone's throw of the Budapest Hotel. Once you've explored the hub of activity around the hotel and you're ready to see some of the city's other sights, you can hop on one of the surrounding metro lines, which will take you around the city throughout the day and night.

Charming Hotel Offering an Authentic Russian Experience 

The Budapest Hotel is situated in a classic Freidenberg designed building, which dates back to 1876. The interior decoration and furnishings have retained their historic Soviet feel, giving guests a truly authentic Russian experience unlike anything on offer in the city's mainstream chain hotels. All rooms come with air conditioning, satellite TV, Internet access, and excellent views of the city. 

The cozy bar is an excellent place to relax and unwind after a long day sightseeing in the city, with drinks, snacks and bar meals available each evening. The hotel also boasts one of the finest restaurants in the entire city, offering lunches and dinners. The menu contains many classic Russian dishes as well as popular European options, and the warm and laid back atmosphere makes it perfect for a romantic dinner for two.

The Bottom Line 

While not offering a traditional luxury experience, the Budapest Hotel does provide an efficient friendly service to its guests, as well as a perfect central city location from which to explore the delights of this incredible city. It is an ideal choice for anyone looking for an authentic Russian experience with a prime central location, and at an affordable price. The rooms are basic but the service more than makes up for this.

Close to the city centre, this late 19th-century building offers old-world charm with individual rooms, each different, remodelled in classic décor.

This historic hotel feels a long way from its glory days. But despite the faded (and slightly jaded) interior and lack of on-site restaurant, it’s not entirely without appeal. The...
A sturdy stone example of the imposing scale and solidity of Stalin-era architecture, the Budapest is slightly farther from the main streets but abuts several intriguing lanes most tourists never see.
