The Izmailovo Hotel is a four-building hotel located in Izmaylovo District of Moscow, Russia. Its 3,500-person capacity, with 2,000 rooms,[1] made it the world's largest hotel from 1980, when it surpassed the 3200-room Rossiya Hotel, also in Moscow, until 1993, when the MGM Grand Las Vegas was expanded to 5009 rooms.

It was built for the 1980 Summer Olympics,[2] because Moscow lacked enough hotel rooms. It is usually rated a three star hotel (Alfa, Vega and Delta are rated four star hotels) and its four buildings, Alfa, Beta, Vega and Gamma-Delta, are independently managed.

The nearest subway stations are Партизанская (Partizanskaya)[2] and Moscow Central Circle station Izmaylovo.
