Hotel Tiflis: "Moscow's Best Boutique Hotel" Russia Hotel Tip by astashan

Russia Hotels: 75 reviews and 56 photos

Hotel Tiflis, also known as Hotel Kebur Palace is a great little boutique hotel in a fantastic area near Park Kultur in Moscow. It's location close to the Moscow river and a short walk to the Kremlin makes it an ideal spot to rest your legs for a week or so. Other spots close by include Little Arbat and Pushkin Museum. It has a superb restaurant which serves delicious Georgian-style cuisine, and the breakfasts were an experience in themselves - a huge choice of hot and cold foods, fruit, pastries - it became an obscession! It was mid-August and extremely hot in Moscow and the small pool in the basement of the hotel was a welcome site after a full day of heat, humidity and sight-seeing. Service was excellent and staff friendly. There is also a small 24-hour supermarket with a great deli section up the road.

The area around the hotel is interesting, old-style buildings slowly being renovated and restored, quiet tree-lined streets with cafes and stores - takes one out of the hustle and bustle of Moscow's busy boulevards. It's also a short walk to Gorky Park and a great wander down to the river and across to Kievsky train station. I strongly recommend this hotel for it's quality service and location.

Unique Qualities: The pool area, although indoors, has been done in a way that it gives one a sense of being outdoors!

The food and restaurant service was superb.
