In 2004, Golden Apple became one of the first trendy boutique hotels to open in Moscow. Inside an eight-story renovated building from the 19th century, it's about a 10-minute walk from Red Square and other central sites. Its interior, by the Canadian architect Raphael Shafir, is modern and quirky, with dark shiny surfaces in the lobby, and even a bronze apple seat to sit on. Rooms are spacious, with comfortable beds; colorful furnishings made of wood, marble and stone; and such whimsical details as curtains that zip up. The staff is very attentive, and they all speak at least some English. However, the usual breakfast, which is a typical hotel buffet, is less pleasing: opt for the cooked-to-order option for better coffee and a fresher meal. And the Wi-Fi is slow here, but at least it's free.
