History[edit]

Alexander Klyachin opened his first hotel in Samara in 2004, and then later in the same year he acquired further hotels in Kostroma and Ufa. In 2005 the chain acquired hotels in St Petersburg, Vladivostok, Astrakhan and Murmansk.

In 2006 these hotels were brought together under the brand-name of Azmut Hotels, along with a unified room-standard and service in all their rooms. In 2008 the hotel group obtained a series of hotels in Germany and Austria.

In 2010 the group acquired properties in Novosibirsk and Voronezh. In 2011 a hotel in Nizhny Novgorod joined the group, and in the same year the European and Russian divisions of the company were merged into a single company structure, with its head office in Moscow.

In 2012 a new concept for the hotel rooms was developed (SMART),[27] and is being introduced gradually throughout all of the company's hotels (the first hotel with the new concept – Azimut Moscow Tulskaya Hotel – opened at the former site of the Danilovsky Factory in Moscow in a building first built in 1867).

In 2013 the company obtained long-sought management contracts for the large hotel complex built for the Winter Olympics in Sochi,[28] and also for the management of the Moscow Olympiysky Hotel.[29]

In 2014 the company opened after renovation a hotel and business complex Arctic, symbol of Murmansk, the tallest building north of the Arctic Circle .[30]
