Khitrovka hotel - Moscow

Directions to Khitrovka hotel

         Located in the heart of Moscow the Khitrovka Hotel makes the accommodation very appealing for Russian and foreign visitors. It takes 12-15 min to get to Red Square and the Kremlin. Kitai-Gorod, the nearest metro station, is in 7-min walk. The Hotel’s windows look to the quiet back streets, so, even in the proximity to the busy capital’s center, relaxing is guaranteed. The Hotel is named after the area around. Several years ago the city administration had to face a great protest from the Muscovites who stood up against the decision to build a business centre with the parking lot on the Khitrovka square. The authorities were perplexed - why save Khitrovka, that old-Moscow Harlem, the place which a hundred years ago used to be slums? But its history is much richer. In the Ancient Moscow, estates for the high nobility used to be built here.
      After a great Moscow fire in 1812 the devastated land was sold to major-general N.Z. Khitrovo. He invested into a trade square to establish a food market and donated it to the city. Thus, the district received his name. Several tenement buildings around the square served as flophouses with taverns. One of those notorious buildings got a name of Utyug (the Iron) for its sharp corner facing the square. The respectable apartment house nowadays, Utyug is still there, on the same lane. Khitrovka’s peculiar and notorious lifestyle attracted the artistic circles. In 1900-s K. Stanislavsky, the creator of the world-known theatrical system, specially visited one of the flophouses to observe the way its dwellers live to enable a truly staging of “The Lower Depths” by M. Gorky. Today Khitrovka is a quiet and clean district in the center of Moscow.
     The Khitrovka Hotel is a good choice for those who look for an inexpensive accommodation of high quality. The Hotel offers comfortable standard, business and duplex rooms, and suites. Each room is equipped with an air-conditioning system, TV, telephone and internet access. The duplex rooms and suites also include Finnish sauna and can fit up to 4-6 guests. There are a bar and a themed restaurant recreating the atmosphere of a traditional old Russian refectory. The menu offers Russian, European and Asian food. The bar and hotel service is available 24 hours. The friendly atmosphere of the Khitrovka Hotel and area are sure to fill the customers with warm memories and a desire to come back here again.
