In general, the hotel was nice (clean, comfortable, helpful staff). However, the air conditioning did not work all the time and it was quite noisy at night because it is such a large hotel. We tried to go to the swimming pool but for some reason it was 'booked out' on that evening. The breakfast was nice, however. The location is very central, so this suited us.
Excellent Central Hotel

Really nice hotel right in the heart of town on Kirov Square. The rooms were very small but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There's too much ti do in Irkutsk to stay in yiur roim anyway! There is a great bar attached to the hotel, the London Pub. The staff were very helpful and the hotel was so convenient for all the main sights like the cathedral and the riverbank. I think its a great option for anyone coming to Irkutsk and I'd have no hesitation in staying here again.
It was ok

Stayed just one night. Reception welcoming and helpful. Room not brilliant - quite small and not very well furnsihed, Wi fi in room poor - much better in the floor seating area. We were checking out very very early - the hotel very helpfully provided an excellent packed breakfast. Hotel positioned on main square so very convenient.

I was here on a Trans-Siberian rail trip and we had 2 rooms for the day while doing a walking tour of the city before catching the Train for our next leg of the trip. The rooms assigned to us were small but adequate to hold luggage and rest as needed. I enjoyed the city walking tour and later the bar lounge at this hotel. The staff are very welcoming and attentive. Good selection of beverages . I particularly enjoyed the British style restaurant at the other end of the Lobby. There is another by the Bar/Lounge that is Asian style cuisine and appeared popular by Asian tourists. A special note must be given to the antique shop in a farther wing of the lobby. There I purchased a couple of very unique Vintage/Antique items for a very reasonable price!! The shop is tiny and easily overlooked amongst other more flashy shops!! The location of the hotel is central to all the amenities of a city center and worth being at for exactly that!!

This hotel is on Kirov square which is a great location. The room was ok but the restaurant was pretty bad there are not enough seats and they ran out of most things. It is decorated like a dodgy night club I think they use it for dinner as well but once a day was more than enough for me.
