Moscow is the capital of Russia, its administrative, business and financial center. Moscow is the largest and populous city in Europe. The capital of Russia is developing dramatically: a few metro stations open every year, new traffic intersections are under construction. The transport infrastructure and hotel business are developing in the city very actively. Annually hundreds of new different level hotels grow in Moscow.
When choosing the place to stay in Moscow, please pay your attention to the hotel location. Unlike other host cities of the football tournament (Kazan, Sochi and even Saint Petersburg), the hotel transport accessibility is of primary concern. You have to know that there areas in Moscow from which a trip to the stadium or the airport can take a few hours.
Hotels near the “Otkritie Arena” stadium
Otkritie Arena is located in the southwest of the capital in one of the most well-planned and prestigious districts of the city. Near the stadium there are several parks, and also the Moskva River.

- Hotel Metropol Moscow
- The Ritz-Carlton
- InterContinental Moscow Tverskaya
