I've just returned from a weeks stay at the Stolitsa Pomorya. And when I return to Arkhangelsk, I would love to stay here again. I was given a river view. There were no street sounds. Breakfast was typical, good and relaxing. I recommend the oatmeal. The location is right along the river, one block of the main street. The evening meal at the hotel was very pleasant. This was a much better experience than staying in Moscow!
