Reconstruction of hotels will be completed by the end of 2009
Two large hotels of the capital - "Moscow" and the former hotel "Minsk", which are now in the process of reconstruction, will be hosted by the first guests at the end of 2009, a source in the city’s tourism committee said.
In accordance with the reconstruction plan, the hotel "Moscow" will be open for guests in the fourth quarter of 2009. In addition to hotel rooms, the hotel is equipped with shops, restaurants, office and business center. In the underground part there will be a multi-level parking. Construction work at the hotel was completed last year, and now finishing works are underway.
Around the same time, a new five-star hotel will open on the site of the former hotel Minsk. The total area of the new hotel will be 65 thousand square meters.
“Instead of a three-star hotel, Muscovites and guests of the capital will see a modern five-star hotel. Guests are expected to have comfortable, spacious rooms, a shopping center, an office and business zone, and an underground parking for 400 cars, ”added an employee of the tourism committee.
