Hotel Zhemchuzhina
Ranked #7 of 33 Hotels in Vladivostok
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I stayed for two nights and booked a deluxe room (4500 rbls/night). The size of the room was very good, the bathroom very large with a huge showercabin. Bed-area could be seperated from the sitting/desk area by a curtain. Big fridge in the room. Most important, the room looked nice & maintained, no run down furniture or such. There is some noise from the street, but it did not disturb me very much. I happened to see also a single room (2500 rbls/night), which compared well to what I have seen in other Russian hotels and would have absolutely been an acceptable and clean option.
In the winter, as in plenty Russian hotels, they switch of the airco, put on the heater and you have no further control over it, except for opening the windows from time to time, which is what I did.
The hotel gives overall a good impression, elevators, pool-room, ironing-facilities, a restaurant, reception was fine although communication prior to my arrival failed from the hotels side. Breakfast is the usual Russian selection with sausages, pancakes, rice, macaroni, eggs, potato, buckwheat, dairy, some fruit, vegetables. Coffee was poor. I was happy with my stay. The city center of Vladivostok is within easy walking distance and it is about 8 minutes to walk to the railwaystation. I found the price for the room very reasonable and pretty much got what I expected.

I stayed for 2 nights in the hotel on 28 and 29 Nov 2012.
I was greeted by a rather lukewarm reception with just one receptionist being able to speak English. However, she was rather helpful in answering my queries and provided relevant information.
I was slightly disappointed upon arrival on seeing the building but was pleasantly delighted at the small but practical room with a well equipped bathroom which has a hot shower within minutes.
The hotel was conveniently located within walking distance to sights around Vladivostok and restaurants such as Republic and Vustok. More importantly, it is close to the railway station of about 10 minutes walk.
I would love for the hotel to have an ATM but there is one at the supermarket next to it or at hotel primorye across the street.
I would strongly recommend for anyone looking for a cheap and comfortable stay in Vladivostok.

Zemchuzhina Hotel - Vladivostok

external looks can be deceiving ...................

Intro

-Looks old and very ordinary from the outside, rather like a typical old Russian apartment block
-A former military hotel and still used by uniformed military officers and other personnel
-Now under new management and has been completely refurbished inside.
- Very modern with good fixtures and fittings throughout making for a comfortable stay

Good points

-Met at airport on arrival as requested and, the taxi driver spoke fluent English and turned out to be a great contact in the city
-Most receptionists speak English- some better than others-some smile, some don't !
-Location very good 10 minutes brisk walk to centre and station, lots of bars and restaurants close
-Room - business double very comfortable and very well equipped including tea and coffee making facilities and a limited selection of kitchen utensils if you should need them
-Bed extremely comfortable
-Shower excellent-invigorating
-in house cafe/restaurant with good menu
-free Wifi fast and stable
-City centre and all sites and buildings of interest walkable
-24 hour supermarket very close

Bad points

-Hotel surrounded by typical Russian style old apartment blocks- at first sight - location doesn't seem good-but the standard of accommodation in the hotel and with Vladivostok city cente and trappings at your finger tips, this image quickly evaporates.

Conclusion

-Good value for money considering hotel amenities and city centre location
-An alternative 3 star hotel is located very close which does have a better reputation than this one, however slightly more expensive and not yet listed on search webite I used
-A nice stay, nice hotel in a very cosmopolitan city-a city with attitude!! I have travelled considerably now in Russia and Vladivostok is a different city that’s for sure-with now maybe Moscow prices.................food for thought

Room Tip: -Single rooms are quite small -a businss doubleat a skightly higher rate are much more comfortable
