I have been to Murmansk 5-6 times before and stayed at Park Inn, but always left with the feeling that they had taken advantage of me. So I wanted to try something different. Not speaking any Russian I was bit hesitant. After reading reviews I decided for the S-Terminal Apartments. Located in a block of concrete slab flats was not an attractive location, but you soon find your way around to shops, restaurants, etc. S-Terminal is basically a new well-equipped gym with 6 flats upstairs. You have a nice lounge/bedroom with desk, TV & phone and free wifi (except room 6). Entry hall, kitchen with dining area and good size bathroom (shower only). All very clean and well maintained. Staff speaks little English, but are sweet and helpful. There is a small restaurant/coffee bar "Gamardzhoba" 300m down the same road at no. 27 and the manager Anton, who speaks a bit English, will take good care of you. Wifi is available at Anton's. Just opposite to Anton's in the corner of the next block is a small supermarket with fresh food. Walking around the next block there is a larger well-stocked supermarket. S-Terminal only has a few soft drinks and coffee, so you better get a few basics for the kitchen. Apple's iTranslate app is great when finding the right meal at a restaurant with Russian only staff and menu card, or getting the right things when shopping. For the money it's good value. You may find the area bit grim, but many places are modern and well-equipped once you get inside. I am definitely coming back to S-Apartments again.
