Home Hotel History


Construction of the Cosmos Hotel Complex was intended for catering to the XXII Moscow Olympics in 1980. The architectural project, overlooking the VDNKh fairgrounds (now the VVC, All-Russia Exhibition Centre) and Space Explorers Monument was carried out by a team of Soviet and French architects based on the French project that had been approved by the executive committee of Moscow City.

The hotel project included:

  • 1,718 Standard Twin bedrooms
  • 53 two-room Suites
  • 6 four-room Suites
  • catering outlets for about 3,600 seats

While planning the premises layout, the architects had to follow the Soviet building codes strictly, which not only strongly differed from the Western ones, but were much more rigid. The property was built by Sefri Co., France.

Official opening of the hotel took place on 18 July 1979. That was a big fest with many politician, businessmen and pop stars participating. During its more than 20-year history the hotel had a pleasure to see many famous people staying at the property: Joe Dassin, well-known French singer, Alla Pugachyova, Russian pop star, Garri Kasparov, a Russian Olympic Chess Champion.
