There are not many choices of hotels to stay at in Saratov even though this is a major Russian city. The Slovakia may be the best choice however, if you are a foreigner or first time visitor. I am giving it 4 stars in comparison to other Russian hotels because it is a full service hotel with restaurant , business center and views. The staff will have someone that speaks English and maybe other languages besides Russian. Located on the banks of the Volga River you might have a room with a view of the Saratov Bridge that goes between Saratov and Engles. In the summer you can take a boat ride 5 minutes walk from the hotel. In the winter the river is usually frozen over. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel is a 20 minute walk to city center or taxi ride. The staff is typical Russian, they may be friendly or may be otherwise. The lobby is very nice and the rooms are adequate. There is a small shop inside the lobby for snacks and other sundries. You can visit the business center and pay a small charge to use a computer to access the internet or other services.The rooms on the higher floors have the better views and cost more but maybe the best option. If you are a foreigner the staff will take your passport for one day and register you as required by law. Breakfast is typical Russian fare, cold cuts, pastries and juices and eggs can be ordered. You might want to choose one of the restaurants outside for dinner. I have stayed in this hotel on several occasions with different experiences depending on which room I was assigned and which season, summer or winter. If the room you are assigned is not to your liking, view, etc..request another one.
