The five-star hotel is currently being built over 27 floors and will also include a 3,400sqm spa.

The 1,900 sqm event area of the Astrum Hotel Shelkovo will occupy seven separate event rooms on three floors.

A 335sqm conference hall with amphitheatre seating, a 600sqm event room, and five large meeting rooms will accommodate events for up to 1,000 attendees.

A separate entrance to the conference area will minimise the impact of external events on hotel operations.

In addition to the main hotel restaurant, the Astrum Hotel Shelkovo will also feature a Japanese restaurant with a show kitchen as well as an intimate French à-la-carte restaurant on the 23rd floor offering panorama views and a seating capacity for 44 guests.

A sky bar will also be housed on the same floor. Further facilities will include a fitness lounge, a lobby bar and an exclusive VIP club.

"I am pleased that we are making good progress with our expansion on the Russian market. For the greater Moscow area, the Astrum Hotel represents something new in the sense of a city resort," said Dr Andreas Karsten, chief executive of Vienna International Hotel Management.

"We expect that the hotel will become a new landmark with corresponding appeal in the greater Moscow region."
