“Excellent value - friendly helpful staff - outside city center”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

I spent three nights at the Zarina in June 2013. Ten minutes by taxi from the RR station, it is about 120m east of Karl Marx Street, as Karl Marx runs north, away from the center of town. Right off the bat, if you are looking for either a deluxe hotel and/or one located within walking distance of Khabarovsk's main sights, for example, the river promenade, close-by museums, the sport's park and restaurants on Karl Marx St. closer to the Amur, then Zarina is not for you. On the other hand, if you are travelling on a budget, as was I, and want an adequate sized, clean room with private bath and TV, quiet and secure and breakfast included, i would recommend the Zarina.

The front desk staff are friendly. All speak some English. A few are conversational. All are eager and enthusiastic about helping their guests. Examples - local sightseeing suggestions, information about bus routes, calling a taxi, registering your stay with the authorities, arranging for a box lunch in lieu of breakfast.

The number 1 bus plies Karl Marx St., the bus stop being five minutes away by foot. It is a 10 to 15 minute ride to Lenin Square (around 8 stops), the huge plaza in the center of town and 25 to 30 minutes to the last stop at the river's edge, right at the top of the promenade and across from the beautiful, blue Orthodox Cathedral. The longest bus-wait i had, either heading into town or returning, was 10 minutes.

The bottom line: a well-run, clean, hotel that offers solid value for money with a friendly, helpful staff located a bus ride away from city center.

Reviewed 15 April 2013

Khabarovsk was our first major city after leaving Vladivostok and we were very happy with this hotel. New facilities, very clean and reasonably priced.

Whilst staff had limited English, they went out of their way to help us.

The only negative point was the breakfasts which are included in the price -very Russian, ie basic and limited choice.
