We attended an event in Karelia Hotel and after it was finished, we reserved a trip to Kizhi Island directly at the hotel reception desk. We were coming back in the evening and we had to catch our train to St. Peteresburg, but the boat was delayed by about 40 minutes, so we had no chance to catch the train...

They have bigger rooms (more than 20 sq/ meters) where you can stay with your child in comfort. 300 meters from here there is a pony club on lake shore. It costs only 500 rubles for 30 minutes. The lake is very close.

Basic, but clean rooms. Nothing fancy, but had a great view of Onego Lake, about one block from the lake's edge. The food restaurant was very good. The staff at the front desk speak English, but the staff in the restaurant didn't, (and I was too lazy to try to learn Russian), but luckily they had an English menu. I...

A hotel from Soviet years but compitely renovated. Tidy rooms, some of them with lake view. Polite service at reception. Generous breakfast. And in weekends (at least during winter) 50 per cent reduction in room prices. Siisti, hotelli Äänisen rannalla. Pienehköt huoneet mutta palvelu hyvää, aamupala runsas.

Good hotel, nice placement, good service. Facilities are godd maintained and the internet connection into the rooms is good and fast. I like this hotel with some flavour of old Russian style hotels but renewed and updated. There is spa, swinpool and saunas, free of charge some hours for guests. The only problem but important for me, is that the...
