Photographer's Note

Metropol Hotel is located in front of Bolshoi Theater, it was built between 1899 to 1907 and was the largest of Russia in those days. After revolution it was transformed in the second House of Soviet and after used as home for Soviet bureaucracy. In 1930 it became an hotel again.
The façade in Art Nouveau is adorned with relieves of plaster and many colorful tiles with scenes. I didn't like the scenes in the tiles..
The interior of the hotel has a giant roof of glass and decoration of each room id different.
Famous Guests: Bernard Shaw, Sophia Loren, Michael Jackson, David Bowie...

O Hotel Metropol fica localizado diante do Teatro Bolshoi, foi erguido entre 1899 e 1907 e era então o maior hotel da Rússia. Depois da revolução ele foi transformado na segunda Casa dos Sovietes e depois abrigou a burocracia soviética, voltando a ser hotel em 1930.
A fachada em estilo Art Nouveau é adornada com relevos de estuque e azulejos coloridos com cenas. Mas eu não gostei muito das cenas dos azulejos.
O interior conta com um pátio interno coberto por um imenso telhado de vidro. Cada quarto tem uma decoração diferente.
Entre os hóspedes famosos: Bernard Shaw, Sophia Loren, Michael Jackson e David Bowie.
