“probably only hotel in Belomorsk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Stayed 1 night in this hotel on our way from Petrozavodsk to Solovetsk. When arriving by car this hotel was very hard to find as there are no signs visible to the main road, not even in the facade.
This hotel is probably renovated from a former block of flats. The staff was very friendly but unfortunately the only spoke Russian. Our rooms were clean and had all we needed for 1 night (no flat-screen TV as advertised). The tap water looks very brown so we just to a short shower and washed teeth with bottled water. Small restaurant served breakfast which was adequate but no specialties available, and only instant coffee and tea bags.

Room Tip: Try to have a room from the river side as the view is far better.

Hotel rooms are clean with normal equipment. The TV could of course be a bit bigger; we had one with a screen size of about 16”. There is only one exit signpost written in Arabic letters, all over the hotel everything else in Cyril Russian. The toilet and shower water looks awful, dirty, so don’t even wash your teeth with tap water.
In spite of the English language education in the schools, no one speak English. It even looks like they don’t understand a slightest word, not even the clerks in the reception.
The hotel facade don’t look very attractive, as the whole architecture around is all around, but the inside is clean and quite comfortable. No elevators for handicapped people, so the four floors have to be climbed by foot.
There is a small restaurant, and the food is good, even if there is nothing special to be expected for breakfast, very very simple. There is no other coffee than instant, and tea is served only with teabags not stewed.
The view is excellent though, if you get a room to the river side.
