Yaroslavl is a typical small Russian city: the choise of hotels is low and prices are too expensive for the quality and the place. This hotel offered a price of +/- 55 euro for 1 night, which is still expensive if you compare with simular cities in Europe.
The first problem is to search out where this hotel can be: google maps doesn't work in this city, but Yandex is a good alternative. The hotel is located in the city, but even with explanations, you will never find it from the first time. It's located in a very big building (with at least 2 entrances) where many appartments and other offices are located. There is no indication that you will find a hotel and only with experience you know that you need to take stairs to find somewhere higher a receiption! I was lucky that the girl understood enough English to help me and show the room: this is a part of a typical communist Russian appartment and the own bathroom is outside of your bedroom. However, I can't complain: bed and furniture are ok and the shower and w.c. is western standard: this is really good! Breakfast is included, but with 1 or 2 slices of bread and no butter, I can't say it's a succes: this is - again - the old Russian way to treath guests. When I checked out, I asked to leave the luggage the whole day: the woman didn't understand my request, search and found a man in military uniform, which took my luggage, go down and put it in the street!
This is not a real hotel and indeed a guesthouse. The big exception was the young girl when I checked in, but I really didn't feel me treathed as a guest. Creditcards are not accepted and many papers show you that you must pay cash. A good point is that they do the necessary for official registration. For 1 night you can use this hotel (or guesthouse), but for a longer stay I advice to go somewhere else.
