There is a bit of confusion over which hotel is which - they share the same building and reception area but not desk. As far as we were concerned, we stayed at the Hotel Sibir (Siberia) and simply loved it. The staff were superb, the room very comfortable and the location close to perfect. The so-called ‘café’ on the ground... More

Great hotel with some old world charm, good facilities and centrally located. The room was perfectly clean, good size and very comfortable with good wifi, though the bed was a bit soft for my liking. Even though on the main Lenin Street, noise was not an issue. English well spoke at reception and the girls were very helpful with any... More

As a last minute "do you have a spare room??" booking we weren't expecting much but we're pleasantly surprised!! Friendly staff who spoke adequate English and were keen to help. Cleaning staff happily allowed us to use their washing machine, which was a life saver after 2 months traveling. More than decent breakfast included, and an English menu. Filtered and... More

This little hotel is a solid choice in Tomsk. It is cheaper than its competitors, centrally located, and has the kindest and most accommodating staff we have met anywhere. Irina, the front-desk person, is beyond compare. Her English is fabulous and she went out of her way to help us at every turn. Other staff members were also pleasant. We... More

Lovely hotel with good facilities and great location, great for walking into town. The bed in this hotel was really comfortable, and even better was the adjustable heating control!! The Russian's do tend to overheat their hotels. The room was perfectly clean, and very comfortable; I probably had my best sleep in Russia in this hotel. The lady at reception... More

I stayed a couple of nights in jan and found the room perfect for the price and the location was right where you want to be for sight seeing. The staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist with train tickets, taxis etc, I would definitely recommend.

The staff was great and the hotel is in a good location. The rooms are a little small, but the decor is ok. Just make sure you stay on the back side of the hotel!!

The "Sibir Forum Hotel" is actually two hotels at one location. They are managed by two different organizations. We stayed at the Hotel Siberia. The Forum Hotel was located on the second floor. The Hotel Siberia is a great mid-range hotel for stays in Tomsk, Russian Federation. Pictures do not do justice to this hotel. Our room, a "studio" was... More

The Hotel Sibir is a basic but clean hotel in a very central location in Tomsk. Since it is relatively cheap, we adjusted our expectations downwards, so we were not disappointed by what is a simple no-frills hotel (with no lift). For that, the staff are helpful and very friendly – the poster above obviously had a bit of bad... More

Really poor value for money and some serious management issues as well. My room facing the main street (pr Lenina) was seriously affected by traffic noise through the night even with windows shut, and I had to wear earplugs to get any sleep at all. The blanket was too small and I kept waking up to rearrange it because my... More
