“Refurbished, surprisingly far more than adequate”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

It was quite a surprise to find a quite decent hotel in a fairly out-of-the-way Russian city like Kursk, located not far from the Ukrainian border and city of Kharkiv. The rooms were very spacious, the Internet worked very well and the restaurant was more than reasonable. A bar area was undergoing renovation (which I assume has been completed by now). The location as far as I could ascertain was quite reasonable, though Kursk is not a large city, certainly by Russian standards (400,000+). The front office staff spoke reasonable English - already an improvement over most Russia hotels. The only weird "Russian" thing was the TV in the bedroom: not only was it not a flat screen (if you're doing renovations, why not put in flat screen TV's?), but it sat on a dresser that faced away from the bed, i.e. there was no way to actually watch the TV unless you plopped a chair in front of it. Quite strange. Other than that, it was an excellent stay.

on arrival at this hotel i was greeted by english speaking several english speaking staff who were always happy to help me they after a few days my a/c stopped working so they transfered me to a different room which was a alot better room throughout my stay everyone went out of their way to help as i was totally unable to speak russian. there is a large supermarket next door to the hotel also there is a tram stop and a taxi-bus stop outside the hotel so you can get into town easy enough

Room Tip: For good wifi ask for the third floor

Reviewed 2 August 2009

This hotel is relatively new - 1 or 2 years. After spending some time travelling in Russia, this is definitely one of the better hotels. Front desk staff spoke english, as did some of the serving staff in the bar. We spent only 1 night here, but it was one of the best on that trip. The rooms are classic Russian, with small beds, etc. This is to be expected.

Cost was the equivalent of $120 USD or so.

Kursk is a decent sized town, and has a good selection of restaurants. Definitely somewhere I would visit on leisure travel in the future.
