The Taganka Hotel&Hostel is located in central Moscow. It is the first purposely built project in Russia that combines hotel style accommodation alongside backpackers-dormitories (hostel rooms). These are located in a separate two storey building that was finished in November of 2010. The building is located in a 24hour security area with video surveillance cameras and security guards working all around the clock.
The Taganka area, in which the Hotel&Hostel is located, is close to the Kremlin, Red Square and St. Basil's Cathedral (about 1-3 metro stops or 5 minute drive). The area also has quite a few famous historical sites of its own for example the Novospasky monastery, the first monastery founded in
Moscow in the 14th century.
