Just down the road from the kremlin this hotel is on the high point in the city with views out to the river from the back.
We checked in here for three nights as part of our trans siberian journey to explore Kazan.
Our room 113 at the back of the hotel was huge with a big sofa and coffee table, plenty of room for our luggage. Everything was clean and comfy although all a bit old fashioned.
For those with mobility issues this is not a viable choice. There is no lift and there are lots of stairs and changes in level.
Wifi was not great here, you need to keep logging in. There are english language stations on the tv.
Its an easy stroll down the hill to the main pedestrian fare and down the road from the kremlin and the museum of tatarstan. There are plenty of restaurants close by as well.
Breakfast is in a formal dining room and there is plenty of seating and food to go around. Food ok but three breakfasts were enough.
Reception is friendly and helpful. They will store your luggage after checkout if you need it.
The railway station is close by down the hill. We paid 300 rouble by taxi to get there and 110 by yandex to get back.More
