A nice hotel small, new and clean, close to the river, stayed 2 times before went for a couple of days on Baikal lake. rooms at the top floor 5th level, doesnt have curtains in the roof windows, so very early light, the reception ladies speak very good english, which is perfect to help you wth the map of irkutsk.

We only stayed one night here before catching the train to Moscow. The hotel enjoys a central location next to the cathedral and main square, but it was actually a bit hard to find because it hides in a small back street. The rooms are large with a nice clean bathroom. There's free wifi and the staff was nice to... More

Don't stay on the fifth floor if you are claustrophobic! First hotel I ever stayed in without a window but a skylight! The air conditioning was not adequate and when we opened the skylight there wasn't a screen on it so the bugs could come in and then it rained on us so it became a choice of either swelter... More

Our party of four stayed at this hotel while on a break from the Trans Siberian Express train service. Bed was comfortable and room was very clean. Breakfast was excellent. Staff made us feel comfortable and was very helpful. We were able to walk to a local grocery store to obtain supplies not available on the train.

The rooms varied but all were definitely adequate -- two with showers and one with shower and bath. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast that came with the... More

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

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
