Looking at the Red Stars from the outside, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is just another standard hotel inside a concrete cube. But this apparent ugliness is only skin deep. The interior of the hotel has been decorated by the best street artists in Russia creating a bold aesthetic that will not fail to leave you with an indelible impression of artistic flair. Contemporary and cool, the idea behind the unique décor was to bring to the surface some of the talented artists usually consigned to work in the city’s subculture. Each of the four floors has been themed on the world’s great hubs - Tokyo, London, New York and Rio-de-Janeiro. The concepts extend into the guestrooms. Lightboxes, which use java script to display images and video, are installed on each floor showing conceptual videos based on street perspectives. There is a restaurant and a round-the-clock bar where you can meet friends and hang out when visiting the historic St Petersburg city.
