“Actually pretty decent, nice bar downstairs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

My first trip to Syzran. My Russian colleague had stayed there in the late '90's when he said it was very much an old school Russian hotel with the "massage room" next to check in to allow rental of company for a couple of hours. That has gone, but being Russia I am sure you can find company if you really need it.

Now the hotel has been renovated and they have done a pretty decent job. Rooms are comfortable with a fridge and a TV, beds are clean and comfortable and bathroom is decent, including soap and shampoo.

The bar downstairs which is open until midnight is nice and the beer is good value. We had some food and that was okay too, even though the restaurant had closed. Menu was in English....I assumed the "cheese stuffed with mushrooms" was in fact "mushrooms stuff with cheese" that famous and omnipresent Romanian stable.......but in fact it was "cheese stuff with mushrooms!"

Not a lot of English spoken, but that isn't a big surprise, this is pretty much up country Russia. We had a translator as we were working, but I think you could get by, and the menu was in English as I said. Internet was free and pretty fast. Leave out the space in the password in the book and it works.

Can't remember what it cost, but it wasn't a lot by international standards.

It is apparently one street away from the main drag in Syzran, but I never went (only being there one night). There is apparently another hotel worthy of consideration, but it was full. The Chayka is fine though. No complaints at all. I travel quite a bit up country in Russia as well.

One thing to note......there is no lift/elevator, but it only about 4 floors.

Room Tip: No lift, if you can't carry your bags upstairs request a low room. I am sure someone will help...

Comparing to other hotels in Russia, for that price and in that location, I must say It was nice surprise. Hotel is renewed, rooms are comfortable, with LCD TV, very good bed, some chairs, fridge and nice bathroom with hairdryer. I have paid like 75 USD per night. In their hotel Beer-bar you can get Baltika beer for 100 Rbl (3 USD) and quite good food, menu in english is available. Hotel is non-smoking but they have nice smoking room in 3rd floor and smoking shad close to restaurant. Breakfasts are stange, choice of 5 menus with only tea of coffe to drink, milk in tea you gotta pay extra, but who cares. Some personel speeks english, but a little. The people working in bar and restaurant are very nice and friendly. For bussines trip or even a longer stay I can really recommend.

Room Tip: If You smoke go to third floor to be close to smoking room. There is no lift inthat hotel, so If you...
