Best Hotels in Khimki – where to stay between flights

In most cases, if Russian travelers have to fly to distant countries, a long transfer is made at one of the airports in Moscow – in this case, it is more convenient to rent a room in one of the best hotels in Khimki, located within a radius of several kilometers, sleep and overcome the distance with new strength.

This smallsatellite city of the capital is also surrounded by picturesque nature, boasts a beautiful view of the Moscow River Canal and various ancient estates, so spending time here will be interesting and informative.

Holiday Inn Express-Moscow

Khimki is considered a great place for transit passengers who want to catch their breath between long flights – a large international airport (Sheremetyevo) is located nearby. One of the terminals is right within walking distance of the hotel, which is very convenient.

The option is perfect for a long connection of flights in Moscow and offers the following rooms: standard or double (with one or two beds). Also available for booking are special apartments for people with disabilities – the shower in such rooms is not fenced off by a side and a wall.

One of the main advantages of the hotel is the organization of a free transfer to the terminals of the airport. A conference room with fax and printer facilities is available on request. If you need to urgently wash or iron clothes, you need to contact the laundry – the service will be provided immediately.

The in-house international restaurant serves a good and highly accompanied breakfast. In the bar in the lounge area brew excellent aromatic coffee – be sure to try!

Alina, Vologda: “Despite the fact that the property is right next to the airport terminal, the rooms are quiet and cozy. The place is ideal for early departures – you can sleep peacefully, and then with the help of a transfer quickly get to the terminal. Breakfasts are good too – we loved it.”

Novotel Sheremetyevo Airport

For tourists heading to a major airport, we suggest exploring another accommodation option, which is located next to the Aeroexpress stop and the entrance to the terminals.

The number of rooms has several categories of apartments: standard, superior and executive suite. When booking, you can choose the number of beds in the bedroom or ask to bring a baby cot. If a guest under sixteen years of age sleeps in existing beds, his accommodation is not paid.

Staff can arrange a free shuttle service to all terminals and offer a host of wellness services that can be useful before flights: swimming pool, steam bath, sauna and gym with spa lounge. Parking space for guests is available to all comers.

In two restaurants operating on the territory of the facility, they offer dishes of different cuisines of the world – from the usual Russian and European to Italian and grill. On request, a special menu for toddlers is available.

Natalia, Murmansk: “I liked that the transfer service is free, and the bus itself comes strictly on schedule – it is impossible to be late for your flight. Lovely spa area – we were able to relax before a long flight, as well as have a great night’s sleep in the room (inside is quiet and comfortable).”

Radisson Blu Sheremetyevo

The main feature of the luxury hotel of the famous network is the presence of its own covered passage connecting the hall of the building with the Sheremetyev terminal. The option is highly appreciated by tourists – it is perfect for spending the night waiting for your flight.

The number of rooms has many more categories than is customary in objects of this type: standard, executive, superior, luxury, junior suite and premium. Some rooms boast an unusual view of the runway (you need to specify when booking).

In the “Radisson Blu” guests can not only wait out the hours between flights, but also relax – they have a swimming pool, gym, sauna, bath and relaxing massages. A special play area is available for children.

In “Radisson Blu” you can also eat deliciously – a variety of dishes are served in two restaurants in the hotel building. If desired, food can be brought into the room, for kids there is a separate menu.

Andrey, St. Petersburg: “The option is ideal for transfers – there is no need to leave the airport area at all, the buildings are connected by a corridor, but still a quick transfer is provided, which can be useful for tourists with heavy suitcases. The breakfasts are delicious.”

Hotel Alexandria-Sheremetyevo

Just a few kilometers from the international car two years ago, a mini-hotel was built, which received a lot of positive ratings from guests. The main attractions of the town are within walking distance.

Apartments in “Alexandria” differ in the degree of comfort and equipment: a superior suite with a large bed, a deluxe studio and a room with its own jacuzzi are available. Extra beds are available upon request.

A shuttle service organized by the staff provides quick access to the airport. For travelers by their own car, the plus will clearly be the availability of space in a private parking lot. For business trips, it is offered to use a fax and printer.

The small restaurant serves dishes from the standard and diet menus, and breakfast can be delivered directly to the hut.

Natalia, Ufa: “The transfer is served very quickly, to go to the terminal no more than ten minutes – the location is excellent. The staff is attentive, helped me lift up a heavy suitcase. The interior is quiet and comfortable, the plumbing and furniture are completely new.”

Hotel Gold Shark

From the mini-hotel with an unusual name you can easily get to both the entrance to the airport and to the very center of the capital – there are stops of trains, public transport and taxi ranks nearby.

Guests can choose one of the following accommodation options when booking: large double apartments (you can specify the number of beds in the room), a superior room and a small studio with a sofa bed.

Staff are ready to offer many wellness services that will help you prepare for a long flight: a swimming pool, a Turkish hammam, massage sessions and a SPA-lounge. On request, a mini-bus is organized to any necessary place, in the evenings karaoke and performances are arranged in the lobby.


In the restaurant of the same name, the service is à la carte, guests can try a variety of delicious treats. Kids bring separately prepared dishes, familiar to young children.

Maria, Yekaterinburg: “I liked the Gold Shark because the minivan is provided free of charge, the driver will meet and disarm in the place you need. Inside is clean, fresh renovation, furniture is all new. We loved it – a great choice for connecting flights.”

Hotel Concept

“Concept” boasts a location closer to Moscow – a few minutes away open metro stations, ground transport stops and a railway platform, from where you can go by train to any city. Nearby there are exhibition centers and concert halls.

On the hotel’s website, rooms of different types are available for booking: double (one or two beds), double suite with an increased area, family apartments, junior suite and deluxe.

In the building there is a whole business hall with a conference area – for employees on a business trip are ready to provide fax, photocopying equipment and a banquet lounge. A private mini-bus to the building can be arranged at an additional cost.

Breakfast is served in the on-site coffee shop and restaurant, and there are special treats for children. Breakfast, fruit or drinking water can be delivered to the apartment upon request.

Tamara, Nizhny Novgorod: “The staff is very kind, I was even settled a little earlier at no extra charge. A bottle of drinking water is brought into the room, very convenient. Breakfasts are simple but delicious and hearty. It’s a great option for one night.”

Edem Business Hotel

The hotel with an eloquent name is located a little further from the noisy zone of the Moscow Ring Ring House and the airport – closer to the forest park areas and metro stations. To Sheremetyevo from here about fifteen minutes by taxi or own car.

All rooms are decorated in a restrained classical style and are divided into several main categories: standard, superior, suite. The apartments can safely accommodate from one to four people (extra beds are provided).

On the territory there is a free guarded parking, a conference hall and a business area, which can be useful for business travelers, as well as organized walking tours along interesting routes. In any corner of the building catches a quick Wi-Fi.

In the restaurant owned by “Eden”, serve a variety of dishes – both Russian and European. On special request, the chef will prepare diet meals, and the waiters will deliver the food directly to the apartment.

Kirill, Krasnodar: “We stayed here with the baby – everything is fine, the crib was brought immediately, settled quickly. We enjoyed ordering food in the room – delivered without delay. The restaurant serves delicious and varied meals.”

Editor’s choice

If you have a long night connection of flights in Moscow, we recommend you to stay in a hotel owned by a well-known network and famous for its excellent service – “Radisson Blu”. This option compares favorably with several features:

  • closest location to SVO;
  • availability of its own corridor leading to the complex of the a/p;
  • developed infrastructure;
  • a wide range of wellness treatments;
  • great restaurant.

When ordering a suite, we advise you to pay attention to the suites, which offer a panoramic view of the GDP – it will be very interesting to watch the planes taking off and landing from afar.
