“Very good but very expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I stayed 3 times at this hotel which is very big, spacious rooms, very big bath and very clean. Unfortunately no one speaks any other language than Russian, except two or three ladies at the reception.
Breakfast is bad, food is not very good in Russia so this was no surprise. The hotel is in the middle of the city, near a shopping mall and near McDonalds.
But Kaluga is really nothing spectacular. There is a nice park though that needs to be seen but I couldn't recommend anything else.
The hotel is good, the internet works fine and it is very clean however I have to say it is very expensive and if you compare it with other hotels in Europe, it is really overpriced.

Very good Hotell in the middle of Kaluga. No disturbing traffic and big rooms but some of them with a slight smell of tobaco. Nice personal very helpful with everything. Breakfest was good but not so big. There could be a lot of people at one time because it opens first 07.00. Separate aircondition in each room, not tested.

Hotel is located in the center of Kaluga. Room is spacious, bathroom is very clean, breakfast is average but ok. In walking distance you have a small shoping center and a Mac Donald.
