Admittedly looking a little out of place on the shores of Lake Baikal, the towering Hotel Mayak offers great views over Lake Baikal, especially from the 7th floor terrace; an excellent place to sit and watch the setting afternoon sun. Service was good, English spoken at reception, included buffet breakfast very good and the one meal I had in the... More

Before this we also stayed in another hotel of the same chain (Europe hotel, Irkutsk). The style is the same as Europe hotel, but this one has a lot more for a lot less money. It's just near Baikal Lake, so the view is amazing at least if you have a room on the front side. I stayed here with... More

This was my first visit to Baikal, if you didn't go to Baikal that means you missed something out of your trip to Russia. This is biggest hotel of Listvyanka facing Baikal lake, a perfect place to stay once you going to Baikal. Staff is helpful n courteous. Morning breakfast really nice and services are pretty good. Must visit this... More

The room, the dinner and the breakfast all are average. Obviously, there is a shortage of staff. One cannot feel comfortable when they see a pregnant waitress doing her best serving 5 dinner tables at the same time. The view from the dinner/breakfast hall is marvellous.

In a superb location with views across the lake, the Mayak is perhaps Listvyanka's most comfortable hotel. Tourist information, public transport, the pier from where boat excursions depart are right next to the hotel with restaurants, shops and the market minutes away on foot. Our superior lake view room was comfortable and furnished to a high standard. Breakfast was typical... More

Look, it's a post-Soviet hotel. It's very Russian. The staff are fairly helpful. The rooms are small and clean. The beds are firm. The rooms in the front part of the hotel are better than those at the back. The breakfast is Russian hotel breakfast. You stay here if you are touring Lake Baikal, a wonderful thing to do. We...

I stayed in this hotel for three nights as part of a side tour around Lake Baikal while traveling across Russia on the Trans Siberian Express. The hotel has two buildings. The big, bright shining one and then the one in the back. I stayed in the one in the back. The room was okay as was the bed. I... More

If you go to Baikal lake via Irkutsk - it is really the best choice in terms of location (close to boat station, bus station, Nerpinarium etc), but: - as if in front of the building there is a road & parking, bus station, excursions offices etc - it is very very very loudy & smelly during the day -...

I came here with my pregnant wife after travelling through Fiji, Hong Kong, Thailand, Siem Reap, Vietnam and China and was surprised at how disgraceful the service was, even after living in Rusdia gor the past 16 years.
