“You have to be desperate for saving”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I'd rater do camping than staying another night at that hotel.

The rooms were terribly noisy. I could hear people from two rooms away whispering. The staffs of the hotel is far from being friendly. They seems to be coming directly from the Soviet era. No room services for all of our staying and honestly that was probably better that way as I wouldn't have trust them at all. They have a pool table (300 rub per 1 hour) which is worth looking at because this is the only time I see balls being bigger then the holes... Not saying that they were all white... Good luck with that.

The worse was the breakfast (included)... OMG that was disgusting! Baloney Sausages, rice, black breads, scramble manufactured eggs and some strange brown stuff which I have no idea what it can be...

Rostov is off the bitten track therefore it is very difficult to find good place to go when searching the internet. My recommendation, if you come in this region, is that you get in touch with a local expat who might be able to give you good address. Don't expect the internet to be very helpful.

Rostov in general was fun but we were fortunate to meet someone who gave us the hints we desperately needed to enjoy this place... Young people (20-30) in Rostov are more likely to talk to foreigners than people over 30,,,

Room Tip: Ask for their best suite... if you really want to stay here!

Not a fancy hotel but a clean comfortable place to stay. Near the bus stop easy to get to city center. We did have one day without hot water. But it was ok. Breakfast was ok but not special. Overall good place to stay.

After some of the cheaper hotels in Rostov were renovated (and now more expensive) I decided to give the Zvezda a go. While not glamorous looking from the outside, rooms were clean and reasonably modern, although finishing touches a little cheap. I stayed in a single room on the 7th floor (a non-smoking floor) and to my surprise, room was a double bed and bigger than expected. Odd numbered rooms have the best view but even numbered rooms still have an outlook of sorts. Carpets need replacing and may have contributed to a stale smell when first entered but a few hours of the window open sorted it out. One big plus in summer is that the window had a flyscreen and there is also airconditioning. Breakfast was a nice buffet but not what you'de call a Western-style breakfast. Mostly hot dishes like stroganoff and goulash and Russian salads, cakes, chocolates and sandwiches (perfect for dinner!). In the cheapest rooms, towels are only changed every 3 days (or you can pay to have them changed more often). Laundry service is cheap but the drying part is hanging the clothes in your room. WI-FI was free. All the usual services you would expect from a large hotel. The best part about this hotel is the location and value for money... cheapest hotel in the centre- 4 bus stops from B. Sadovaya Ulitsa or walking also possible (about 15 minutes). Supermarket nearby and ATM on-site. Cheapest rooms around 2000 roubles a night in the summer.

Room Tip: 7th floor non-smoking. Odd numbered rooms have a better view. 5th floor has a cafe so a lot of peo...
