Hotel VM-Tsentralnaya
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Magadan
Reviewed August 4, 2011

I stayed here with a tour group for 2 nights. The hotel is well located on the main street (which is the start of the Road of Bones, making it arguably the longest street in the world). It has a lively bar at night.

The rooms are fairly typical for a Russian hotel, but my bed was very uncomfortable - it seemed to have a lumpy box-spring section only in the middle part of the mattress.

Several of our group experienced problems with plumbing. The bathrooms are reasonably clean, and some effort has been invested in replacing tapware, but unfortunately the tapware used is very cheaply made and fails. In our room it was not possible to switch the water flow to the shower because the switch was worn out - this was reported but not fixed during our stay. Others had an inoperative bathroom and as a remedy were offered use of the sauna showers/toilets, provided they fetched and returned the key from reception each time.

To be fair, we stayed on a weekend - but as the plumbing issues were not isolated, it seems fair to assume they had been brewing for a while.

There are not many options in Magadan, but if I returned I would be inclined to try an alternative.

Hotel Centralnaya is a good, clean hotel, located in the center of Magadan. It was built already in 1947 but completely remodelled in 1996. Known as the best hotel of the city, it is close to the theater, musea, government offices and shops.
It has 63 rooms on 5 floors. There are the first category rooms for a price of 121 $ and the luxe rooms for 139 $. The de luxe rooms are just more spacious and have more furniture. Each room has a clean bathroom, comfortable king-size bed, refrigerator, TV-set and telephone. There is a business center, a restaurant, a cozy bar in a maritime style (Magadan is an important port), a game room with billiard tables and a sauna with a very small swimming pool. There is an open fireplace in the lobby. The personnel is friendly and the girls in the reception and the business center speak English.The Magadan airport is located at the place Sokol, 54 km north from the city, on the famous "Road of Bones". In case you intend to make a trip to the remains of a gulag
(soviet concentration camp), like I did, it is advantageous not to take a taxi to the city but to be met by a guide and a driver of the travel agency at the airport, travel further north and come to Magadan after two or more days. Although I had to pay the hotel room for two days in advance, not knowing that I shall stay overnight in the tajga, I got, without any problems, reimbursed the room cost for one day in cash.

Room Tip: The first category room is good enough
