Hotel Pushkin is located in the heart of Moscow in a quiet Nastasyinsky side-street, connecting to famous Tverskaya street. Nastasyinsky side-street stretches only for 200 meters. It was one of the four side-streets in the Old Vorotniki. Perhaps it was named Nastasyinsky after the wife of Prince Volkonsky, who had there a large estate in 1730s. Sometimes the side-street was called Knyazh-Nastasyevsky and Medvezhy.
Hotel Pushkin is located in the historic mansion, which was built in 1883-1891. On the second floor there was situated a cozy little theatre named after Vera Komissarzhevskaya (established on the basis of the studio), directed by her stepbrother Fyodor Komissarzhevsky, an architect by profession. He raised the banner of theatrical “romanticism” in the pre-revolutionary Moscow. Fyodor’s workshop had prepared unique actors who mastered actor technique, stage movements and singing. The debuts of A.P.Ktorov, I.V.Ilyinsky, Mikhail Zharov etc were held in this theatre.
In 1880s there lived a ballet dancer M. P. Stanislavskaya, who danced leading roles of the Bolshoi repertoire. The audience delighted with her in “Swan Lake”, “Faust”, “The Humpbacked Horse”, “Esmeralda”.
In 1920s Soviet Landscape painter P.I. Petrovichev lived here. More recently the building was completely renovated.
We are confident that our guests will really appreciate the flavor, hospitality and high level service of Hotel Pushkin.
