Hotel National was built in 1903 by the famous Russian architect Alexander Ivanov in a pompous eclectic style, which was very popular at the turn of the century. The construction cost nearly one million roubles, then a huge sum of money. Very soon hotel National became extremely popular among Russian businessmen for its luxury, restaurants and its services: it was the only hotel in the city with elevators.
In March 1918 the hotel became the First House of Soviets and accommodated members of bolsheviks government which moved to Moscow from Saint-Petersburg. Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the government, stayed in room No 107 before he moved to the Kremlin. A lot of world famous celebrities and businessmen, such as an american tycoon Armand Hammer, writers Anatol France, Herbert Wells, Henri Barbuss and many others were among the hotel guests.
In 1991 hotel National was closed for renovation which took four years to complete. In May 1995, when it was open, it looked just as it did in 1903 but in fact it was quite a different hotel in terms of equipment and services. Now it has a state-of-the-art kitchen, the most up-to-date fire-fighting equipment, a sophisticated security system.
