Best speaking russian
This a pleasant hotel in Kostroma although on a very busy way (Magistralnaia) on which traffic begin early. If you do not speak few words of russian it would be difficult to chek in. English is totally unknown. The center of the city if 2 km far, however the taxi are incredibly cheap (as low as 50 RU, i.e. less than one Euro, to go to the center of the city, or 120 Ru i.e. 2 € for the Ipatiev monastery) The room I booked was large , clean and clear. However they did not clean the room during my two nights stay !!!! The breakfast is included, however it is the first time I found the system they use: you have the choice between only three kinds of breakfast, and you have to indicate the exact Schedule you choice for eat. It is not a very good breakfast in fact. At least you are not starving. People at the reception are kind and if you show that you are a russian beginner, they enjoy !
Les plus: very cheap
Les moins: zabtrak (breakfast)
Emplacement: nothing, you have to go to the center of the city. Use taxi they are very cheap !
