“a good base when visiting Kaliningrad”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

The Skipper forms part of the "Fish Village" urban revival complex, a bit Disneyland but an improvement on the Soviet era concrete. It is on the edge of the city's central area in a part of Kaliningrad that was totally demolished following WW2. Rooms are very comfortable, nice views over the river and Kant Island. Staff on the desk are very friendly and helpful, people in the adjacent tourist information office less so. The attached restaurant is expensive in relative terms and poor value for money, other eating options in the vicinity are limited. Kaliningrad is a historical curiosity and provides an interesting taste of Russia, the Skipper makes an excellent base.

We were travelling to the Kaliningrad (most western Russian region) on April 2011 for weekend. I booked the Skipper hotel there. The hotel is located in nice place just on embankment area. Our view was on the river side. We had pleasant time at hotel. I have broken credit card at that time (chip wasn't working) and the POS-terminal didn't recognize it. But we resolve this issue with one of a bank ATM. The room price is a bit high I could say. Nevertheless I recommend this hotel.

Located in the newly built "Fish village" just in front of the Cathedral (the Kant island), Hotel Skipper is a very good place where to spend your stay in Kaliningrad and without a doubt the best choice in the whole city. Rooms are spacious, clean and the view over the canal is really relaxing even cloudy or sunny.
Breakfast is served on request at the nearby lighthouse (the "Mayak") and it's good enough to make you hang around until dinner time.
