I recently stayed here for the 4th time in 3 years. This is THE quintessential Soviet experience, cheap, poor service, 70's decor, ladies for hire on the 4th floor and not any hot water literally anywhere, and I mean anywhere. Very cold during the winter. Do not stay here for comfort, only stay here if you want a truly Soviet... More

Well, I can't say this was one of the nicer hotels I've stayed in, but it was a fun experience. The hotel brings back memories of the old Soviet "Intourist" era when the hotel choices for foreigners were extremely limited. The rooms were very basic but perfectly adequate. No hot water, but we were told there are hot showers available... More

For those of you wishing to travel back in time and experience the ultimate Soviet Hotel, then look no further! Hotel Aist has a mildly dilapidated appearance with the odd smokers standing conspicuously outside. A security guard might be on Sudoku when you enter, but the ubiquitously unsmiling administrator will be there behind the window to the left. A betting... More

I slept 3 nights at this hotel in july 2011. The room was large and clean, with balcony facing the Dniestr river. They didn't have breakfast serving, but there was no problem finding som food out in the city. There were a bit tricky in the reception because they did not speak one word english. They had a price list... More

This hotel is a must! it's so bad , it's good. The single member of staff encountered was a very kindly woman. It's a ghost hotel perfect for a visit to this city stuck in some soviet time warp. Two standard of rooms ,one with and one without hot water. Take the hot water room and you get an extra... More
