We stayed four nights at the Empire Hotel. The room was very good. Comfortable bed, nice seating area, very good bathroom. Tidy and clean. Staff is very friendly and extremely efficient and helpful. Excellent and free WiFi. Good breakfast. Central location at the river walk. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay there again.

Relatively ok hotel in downtown Irkutsk. Nonsmoking rooms still smell of smoke. The reception staff was pleasant enough. Hotel breakfast was of average quality for Russia. One problem is that the curtains are quite thin and don't block the sun, which is an issue in mid-Summer when the sun sets well past 10:00 pm and rises around 4:00 am. The... More

I spent just one day/night in this hotel on my way to Chita - but the location was good, room quite comfortable and clean - with good shower. However the highlight was the quality of the staff - Anastasia, Nina and Alina all spoke very good English and were some of the most helpful staff I have come across -... More

We arrived in Siberia at the Empire Hotel after 11:00 p.m. Due to a communcation gap between our guide in Mongolia who took us to the airport and waited with us for extra hours due to plane delays, and the driver who picked us up at the airport in Irkutsk (Siberia), we had not eaten at all; each thought the...

The hotels at the Empire are clean and well-priced with a most helpful staff. However, note there is an absurd charge for "early check in." And while the restaurant of the hotel is good (excellent breakfasts), make sure the prices charged for lunch and dinner are the same as those appearing on the menu--I was once told, "old menu, new...

Three star hotels in Asian Russia are different from Western Europe or Japan, but I have to say that Imperia (also known as Empire in some of their literature) hit the sweet spot. A friendly and very helpful desk, clean and spacious rooms, and a swift and responsive staff (to fix a broken light; to help me with the safe).... More

Far more better than expected. Good location, clean rooms, helpful staff. Breakfast could have been better, but still acceptable.
