“Try some comunism”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

This hotel was booked for us by partner travel company in Russia. We did not havy any clue what kind of hotel was offered to us until we arrived to place. It is situated on river bank of Volha river. Reception is very big marbel hall with wifi connection. Hotel bar was a first surprise. Waiter response to "Do you speak english?" was "Of course... Not"
Second surprise waited for us in elevators. This is practical example of Soviet computer driven elevators. Sometimes you go to 1st, 2nd, 13th, 4th floor even that hotel has only 9 floors.
Third surprise was room. It was clean, no bugs and only four dead moths on walls.
Very soviet blue wall covering with traditional soviet carpets.
Beds was clean, but very unconfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms on south side have clear sight to Мамаев курган

Reviewed 3 July 2008

From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to go horribly wrong. Our operator changed us to this hotel as we were double booked at the Intourist hotel.
Our Russian companion laughed when we said we were being moved to the Tourist Hotel and she said now here is a chance for you to see what life was like during communism!
So what was wrong with it...the complicated ticket / key system that took nearly an hour for our group of five to check in, to the bare carpet and howling gale coming through the windows in the bedrooms, the freezing shower, the fact that most of the group could not fit in the beds made for people under 5'4'', the drunken fighting russians on the floors below which kept us all awake all night were just about the final straw... but then came breakfast...
it was a joke - stale bun and instant coffee sachet.
