For a deep dive into the Soviet era, stay at hotel Aist. Picturesque location by Dnestr river, its rooms overlooking either the "old town" of Tiraspol or the steamboat on the river, its the perfect place to hang out after a day of walking back in time through old-style Soviet. The rooms are superbly hideous, with golden brocade as far... More

This place is not to be believed, and one could argue that it is the highlight of Tiraspol, as the Soviet barometer explodes the moment you enter. But be careful, the step down from the front door is high. For €20 you get a room which is modernized in the style of 1974. You get a decent bed, a pillow... More

This hotel is full-on Soviet grimness. From the ice cold shower, non-existent heating in winter, peeling wallpaper and genuinely surly staff, nothing has been changed or repaired in this place since Andropov was in the Kremlin. Absolutely awesome, for one night only if you're not looking for luxury! In theory there's a restaurant and bar somewhere, but we couldn't find... More

Hotel in great location, on the riverfront. half the hotel is being refurbished so not all rooms have hot water. not many tourists staying there, and you have to register yourself with the Ministry of Interior if staying over 24 hours in TransNistria.

We were looking for a budget option as we were already required to pay 20€ when entering Transnistria by our own car through Bendery. Aist seemed to be the only plan in this respect. Staff was friendly, the location near the Dnister river and the main sights as well as the window view were neat. There were a lot of... More

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.
