“The Best Hotel To Stay In Saratov !”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

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.

Room Tip: Be friendly with the staff may help get a better room selection.

This is probably the best Hotel in Saratov. Its practical if you have to visit this city for business or otherwise. If you make your own reservation by e mail etc be sure that you quote your reservation number on check in , they will charge you in full in advance, so even if you have had an 18 or 19 hour trip verify the reservation form befor you sign it, there is no going back if they have charged you a higher rate than agreed, we found that out to our cost. . Check in staff are probably the most unfriendly and disinterested I have ever come across, so your arrival in the Hotel is likely to be a bit frosty, but do not be put off, they treat everyone like that. There is a lovely girl on e mail reservations called Anna however and she makes up for the others somewhat. Rooms here are very basic, they are clean but the beds are narrow and low to the ground with thin mattresses, do ask for a 2nd duvet on check in , although rooms are warm the duvets are tiny. The rates they charge for these rooms by the way is completely crazy, however there is little else around to choose from. Breakfast is interesting and apart from the bar man( who speaks English and is very friendly and helpful ) the breakfast staff are probably the nicest and most friendly lot in the Hotel, expect typical Russian fair at breakfast , its not out of this World or anything but it will feed you. Do buy bottled water on arrival in the Hotel shop ( lots of basics stocked ) and take it up to your room, its not provided. ( European style plug adaptor is useful if coming from US or UK ) We did not use the Hotel restaurant in the evening however there is a very good pizza restaurant on the right as you come out the door of the Hotel and a sort of Chinese / Japanese mixed one 4 doors further down, both restaurants being life savers in the food department. The Hotel has wi fi and there is a PC guests can use in the lobby and also two cash point machines accepting all major credit cards. . To sum up it’s a functional Hotel, appears to be safe from a security point of view, its clean and warm, but it wins no prizes for a warm welcome or any other type of hospitality / guest relations that you would expect to find in a normal Hotel – with the exception of airport ones !!
