A little more luxurious than the usual Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Sokolniki Hotel is just outside the city center and adds some European glamour to a classic American staple. From the atrium café, complete with a grand piano, to the 25th floor restaurant with views over Moscow, the property injects some elegance into this tourist class hotel. Located in a residential zone next to Sokolniki Park and directly opposite the metro station, Holiday Inn Sokolniki Hotel is more affordable than its inner city counterparts while offering complete ease of transit into Red Square - and this ride will take 15 minutes at most. When all the sightseeing is done, Sokolniki Park provides a picturesque backdrop for walks in summer or for ice-skating in winter. On the way back to the Holiday Inn Sokolniki Hotel, guests can refuel with some Russian fast food from one of the stalls near the park entrance.
