Radisson for Moscow and Budapest

One of Moscow’s legendary landmarks joins the Radisson Hotel Group’s elite Radisson Collection division next month as the group also starts work on another property in Budapest.

In Moscow, the Radisson Collection will welcome the arrival of the Ukraina Hotel, currently the Radisson Royal. Formerly the tallest hotel in Europe, it stands on the banks of the Moskva River and is one of the capital’s ‘Seven Sisters’ neo-classical skyscrapers.

Features of the property, which has 501 rooms and suites, include an art collection, a diorama of Moscow, 26 on-site shops, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and its own collection of 10 yachts offering city river cruises.

Radisson Hotel Group executive vice-president and chief development officer Elie Younes said: “This property is the perfect illustration of what Radisson Collection stands for, combining timeless architecture with exceptional experiences.”

In Budapest, Radisson has started work on the Radisson Collection Basilica, which will offer 71 rooms and suites in an historic building facing the landmark after which it is named.

Set to open in mid-2020, the hotel, which occupies a prime central location, will feature a fitness centre, restaurant, lobby bar and a second rooftop bar with extensive views over Budapest’s historic skyline.
