Home Hotel History


The Construction of the Hotel Cosmos Complex was intended for servicing to the 1980 Summer Olympics which were held in Moscow. The architecture of the building with a view of the VDNKh Park and the Monument to the Conquerors of Space was designed by Soviet and French architects based on the French project. Already approved by the Moscow City Executive Committee, the hotel plan included:

  • 1,718 Standard Twin bedrooms
  • 53 two-room Suites
  • 6 four-room Suites
  • Hotel catering network for about 3600 seats

While planning new facilities, the specialists had to adhere strictly to Soviet architecture standards, which not only differed greatly from the Western ones, but were considerably more stringent. The construction of the building was conducted by Sefri Co., France.

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