“Lovely hotel, great room”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

Pros: Very nice room indeed; very clean throughout; good central location; helpful English-speaking staff; Decent food in both restaurants.

Cons: Everything a bit too pricey-restaurants etc. even the laundy cost £3 to wash a pair of underpants! Some breakfast items a little disappointing-fruit salad came out all brown and tired-looking.

Overall a pleasant stay but you pay for it.

This was a very good hotel. The amenities were great and the location was very good. The staff spoke less English than the web site would have you believe. They were very adamant about check in and check out times. The Sushi restaurant in the hotel was good. Internet access was included in the room price and was available with WiFi.

The hotel is in Japanise stile. If you need to go in Irkutsk this is the best choice you can do, the hotel is a good hotel in Western standard, the room are great and it seam a design hotel. All other hotel in Irkutsk are very different form this. I strongly suggest this if you do not have experience of Russia. Good Japanise resturant in the hotel.

The hotel was nice and the dtaff was very polite. Rooms were good, spatious. Location is fine, in the very center of the city. It is expensive, but in contemporary Russia everything is becoming very expensive.
