“Good and central”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Hotel is in the center. Everything worked. Room was extremely hot - but just turn of the water to the over (red switch) and open window. Lots of shops nearby, and ATMs for cash. Bus stops outside. Lifts are slow. Breakfast is fine and efficient. Good choice of food.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

The rooms are tiny and with bad ventilation. They bring hookers right into the hotel and the bouncers let them in for a bribe. It is certainly not a place i will recommend. The reception was not helpful and did not react to my requests. The noise from the night club on the second floor was loud even on the 9th floor up until 6 am

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This hotel is absolutely in the centre of Murmansk, so very conveniently located. It is very clean and functional (not exactly luxurious but is comfortable). Fast WiFi is free (unusual in Russian hotels) and all the usual amenities are present. The staff are welcoming and helpful. They also arranged my airport car transfers which all went very smoothly.
I had a standard single en suite room - this came with shower & wc (no bath - not a problem for me) and the bed was quite large for a single and comfortable.
My only real complaint is that the room was very hot and the only way to cool it down was to have the window open - which allowed the city noises in (especially one really annoying car alarm which persistently went off all night). It would have been nice if coffee had been provided to go with the kettle in the room. There are only 2 lifts (elevators in American) which means that the journey between room and lobby can take 5 minutes at busy times.
I had a meal in the bar - reasonably priced, surprisingly good menu, but they do have large screen TVs with the volume up high. Service was polite but rather slow.
Overall, a good business hotel for 1 or 2 nights and I will stay there again since it is very convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors at the back are quieter.

The hotel is located just in the centre. It is comfortable, safe, silent, reasonably priced. You can park your car in the guarded parking lot. The breakfast was reosonable. The restaurant (the name I dont remember) to which you go from the lobby very good. Remember the Russian way is to have starter, main dish and propably a dessert as well.

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor

This is modern, comfortable and convenient hotel for business trip especially. Very good location right in the city center. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable, with all the facilities. Wi-fi is free of charge. Breakfast is nothing special but quite good. Restaurant of the hotel provide some tasty dishes. Most of all I recommend lenten cherry strudel. Unfortunately, it is cooked only in lenten period.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

Stayed here for two nights in July. I had a twin room with shared bathroom with another guest in the other room. Worked out fine as we were never "home" at the same time. When I walked into my room I got a "dorm feeling". It was like I was back in college again, but the room was nice and clean. Very central location and friendly staff. I would probably stay here again if I were to go to Murmansk again.

Room Tip: If you don't want to share a bathroom, go for double room.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2008

The Meridian is a comfortable, modern hotel where it was worth splashing out on staying for a few nights. The staff were friendly and unfailingly helpful, willing to accommodate our unscheduled extra night's stay - even moving us to a superior suite at no extra cost when they feared that maintenance work might disturb our peace. There is a reasonable bar/restaurant, which suits those seeking a quiet, relaxed meal and drink. I particularly loved the views from the large rooms of a city that is my favourite in Russia - highly recommended.

  • Liked — The service was excellent
  • Disliked — The internet access was occasionally temperamental
