Location and history

The hotel is set in a building dating from the early 19th century. Its first owners were merchants Balasheva. They not only traded, but also had their own production of the famous Tula samovars. Later, their estate and business was bought by the manufacturer Santfleben. He expanded production and established a brass foundry in Tula. With the outbreak of the First World War, the company closed, and the premises for a long time passed from one organization to another, until they fell into complete decay.

In the 2000s, a complete reconstruction of the historical complex was carried out. As a result, the former merchant house turned into a luxury boutique hotel.
