The Grand Opening of MOSS Boutique Hotel in the historic center of Moscow (Krivokolenny Lane, 10/4) was celebrated on the evening of April 21st.
MOSS is filled with vibrations of urban, contemporary Moscow. The hotel is a reflection of the modern city: the people, the atmosphere, the events representing Moscow here and now.
The MOSS Boutique Hotel has 30 rooms, each one encompassing the harmony of minimalist modern design, bright textures and an eco-philosophy. Only natural materials are used in the decor of the hotel: wood, stone and iron, creating a unique tactile interior. The project was implemented by the Adwill Architects company (Bela Badmazhapova as lead architect) in collaboration with Natalia Belonogova (NB STUDIO). The value of the investment is about 1 500 000 000 Roubles.
During the official opening Mikhail Andreev — founder and the creator of the hotel — shared with guests the philosophy behind the hotel and alongside marketing director Ira Shapiro announced the plan to turn MOSS into a national brand. MOSS is currently developing its own perfume in collaboration with the renowned Israeli perfumery Zielinski & Rozen. Furthermore, the hotel has released a CD with MOSS music and has also created a jewelry line (silver bracelets with the inscription “Nothing behind. It all begins now”), which is available for purchase in the hotel.
One of the great successes of the opening night was the acoustic concert performed by the Iranian-born singer from the Netherlands, Sevdaliza (Sevda Alizade). In Moscow for the first time, Sevdaliza gave a mesmerising performance for the guests of the event, amongst whom were a millionaire Oleg Tinkov and an artist Gregory Emvy.
The view from the hotel’s rooftop overlooks the most famous sights of Moscow: Red Square, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and the MSU. The rooms and other sections of MOSS host a collection of artwork by Russian and international artists, meticulously selected by the curator of MOSS ART gallery Oksana Bondarenko (Tretyakov State Gallery ). The art exhibitions will be changed 2-3 times a year and all the artworks are available for purchase.
The MOSS Chef Сoncierge — Anna Еndrihovskaia — is a member of the Executive Committee of the International Concierge Association Les Clefs d’Or.
Individual approach to every guest and the lack of impracticable tasks for the MOSS Concierge Service makes the entire city it’s playground. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week the team of MOSS Boutique Hotel is ready to assist guests with any requests. The bar & restaurant are managed by the trendiest restaurant chain in Moscow — «Coffeemania». Room service is available for the guests and the bar is open 24/7.
A gym, a meeting room and an outlet with clothes and accessories by the Italian fashion brand Dondup are available in the hotel.
Opening rates start from 16 000 Roubles (approx. $280) per night. The event had been teased with a countdown on its website, ahead of its official opening.
