Great little place. Nice clean modern room with A/C and balcony, quiet area, functional plumbing. Lovely view out the window across the valley. Short work to the old town of Bakhchisaray. Would recommend!

Our double room cost about 32 euro / night. This accommodation was very peaceful and quiet. Our clean room had air-conditioner, balcony and bathroom. Very nice place to sleep. We were allowed to use a kitchen, which were shared with other rooms.

Excellent lodging in Bakhchisaray. The rooms were clean and well lit and the breakfast very tasty. Above all, Pavel proved to be knowledgeable of the area and very helpful. We felt like home and if we ever visit again Crimea we would not think of another place to stay.

A very nice secluded guest house close to the Khan Mosque. Excellent service and superb setting. Couldn't fault it. The village is quiet and steeped in history with superb cafes and other places of interest

Very nice "western" style guest house in quiet, but interesting, Bakhchysarai. Lots to see in the immediate area, very close to the Khan's Palace and near (with marshrutka access) the cave monastery and Chufut-Kale. Bus station has connections to Sevastopol area, so you can take day trips there and Balaklava. Guest house itself is clean, pretty modern and pretty well... More

Very nice location with family atmosphere. The staff speaks very good English and is very friendly. Simply but very nice rooms, generous breakfast. Peaceful and charming center of the Crimean Tatars, beautiful landscape with many attractions. Possibility to rent bikes at Meraba. Bedroom... the mattress could be better.

I spent two nights at Meraba and couldn't be happier! For a very fair price, I had a clean, new room with a balcony. It was conveniently located (but a little hard to find at first) as well. The owner was extremely helpful with suggestions on where to eat and things to do. The kitchen was well equipped. I would... More

Stayed one night during the trip in Crimea. We came by train from Simferopol and reached the hotel by walk (dont do that its kind of far..use a marshrutka taxi instead). It is very close to The Khan´s Palace. Owners of the hotel are very friendly, they speak very good English and can give you a lot of advice of... More

I stayed twice in Meraba Hotel. The owners and the staff are very friendly and they give good advice on the places to visit, restaurants, etc. Hotel is clean, comfortable. It has its own garden with fruit trees and flowers. The hotel has a very silent and peaceful location in the old city. It is within walking distance to the... More

So to speak in a few words, I would say Meraba Guest House is an island of Occidentalism, in a Slavic sea. And not because it is a location in Western-style, on the contrary, many things are in Oriental style (Tartar), but because the services are at the Western level. Unfortunately we stayed only one night here, it would have... More
