My colleagues and I chose this hotel primarily because of the location and reasonable price. The location is ideal as for transport accessibility for business trips and for promenade along the waterfront and the historic center Vladivostok. Recommend to book a higher category rooms on 8-9 floors: they are clean and recently renovated. As for breakfast, it has a modest... More

Check in and check out are surprisingly fast. This is not usual for Russia. rooms at floors 8 and 9 are new, renovated but greatly overpriced. breakfast deserves 2 points out of 5. Very poor. Big surprise - huge metall doors to each room on floor where i stayed. Poor wi fi. I believe mentioned metall doors are the reason.... More

Mould in the bathroom floor to ceiling. Old sheet vinyl on the bedroom floor - with cigarette burn marks. Doors that need slamming to close properly. Noisy tour groupes from neighbouring country. Old creaky beds. Room service changes towels daily but doesn't make the beds. No fans or air con in rooms. $150 for a twin room ( hugely overpriced... More

A very basic soviet style hotel. Conveniently located. The rooms are clean and well maintained, but are very basic. Internet in my room wasn't working well. The quality and choice of food at the the breakfast buffet is not that great. Apparently, they serve lunches and dinners there as well, but if it is the same quality as breakfast, I... More

All hotels where I usually tay in Vladivostok was full and my colleaguses booked this "hotel" for me. It is not a hotel. It is "wayback machine". If you want to try the worse side, dark side of exUSSR - you must visit Equator hotel in Vladivostok. Just look to my pictures.. No more comments.

This was the best hotel out of the three we have stayed at in Vladivostok. Neither Hotel Vladivostok nor Moryak can compete with the service we got in Equator Hotel. The reception staff might have been stressed by Chinese tourists speaking very loudly in the reception hall, but they were very service-minded and really did their job (what can`t be... More

I'm stayed three night in this hotel. it was my business trip. Then I arrived, hotel staff was unsmiling, and not warmhearted. My room was quite small with old furniture, TV look like at beginning 90's. Breakfast begin at 8 A.M. - very inconvenient, and portion were small, quality not good. Never more will not stay here.

Stayed one night (checked out and went to the Vladivostok Hotel which was somewhat better). Good points - large room and good location - one of the best locations in Vladivostok at the time of writing (although there are some new hotels opening soon that will have as good a location. Stunning view from the window. On the negative side,... More
