At the same time, and for the second year in a row, the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow, has also been awarded Russia’s Leading Luxury Hotel.

“We feel honoured and proud – both awards are a thank you and a great motivation for our team,” Wolfgang Nitschke, General Manager of the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow at the award ceremony in Antalya, Turkey.

“Our key goal is to create absolutely comfortable conditions for a most delightful stay.

“We are not going to rest on our laurels, but will keep on improving.”

The Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow - formerly known as Hotel Ukraina - is a landmark in the heart of the Russian capital city.

The elegant complex was built between 1953 and 1957 as part of Stalin’s ‘Seven Sisters’ project and showcases Soviet Neo-classicism architecture.

Soaring at 206 meters high, it was the largest European hotel of its day.

Today, fully renovated, the Radisson Royal Hotel offers 497 rooms (including 38 serviced apartments), seven gourmet restaurants with International, Iranian, Fusion, Italian and Japanese cuisine, a Spa & Wellness Centre spread across 3,500 square meters, 13 meeting rooms and a fully equipped business centre.

The World Travel Awards were founded in 1993 and are considered tourism’s top accolade. The jury comprises professionals from the travel and tourism industry worldwide, and their key focus is on the quality customer experience of companies that consistently excel beyond expectation.
