Hotel Rus: Quiet hotel in the city centre

The room was clean and tidy, with television (Russian only), buffet breakfast and a small bar (enough room for 4 or 5 guests). There was one working girl who i had a long chat with about fish from Lake Baikal and my poor eyesight!

It is a favourite with government officials.

If you book directly it much cheaper than through Intourist. The Russian embassy wouldn't except their invitation for my visa application, even though they had accredition of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Its also handy for it ATM/ cash machine.

Baikal InTourist: Expensive hotel, somewhat good

Service was good, although English was quite hard for them apparently. They took major credit cards for payment, American Express as well.

Loundry system was quite interesting, they counted all of our clothes including socks and loundry for few guys costed 800 rubles. Hotel restaurant was quite nice and not that expensive. Hotel had a few bars, Casino and a night/strip club. Every day we got a phone call from a prostitute offering services, so I guess they are a full-service hotel.

Expensive but quite nice.

They have a domestic railway ticket boof, with good English speaking staff. Available for non-hotel customers as well.

Accomodation in Irkutsk in winter !!!!

When you did not organise anything in advance it can be very difficult to find a confortable and affordable place. Of course, if you do not care about money, just go to Intourist Hotel, that is more than 100 Euros/night, but with good standards.
If you have to care about your spendings, first, do not rely on lonely planet “Transsiberian” 1st edition july 2002: the prices have changed a lot…
If you are tired, and do not want to spend time looking for the best cheapest place, just go to Angara hotel www.angarahotel.ru .
If you can book in advance by internet, then try www.baikalhostels.com . I did not stay there, but it is the cheapest accomodaiton I have heard about. They have double rooms and dorms, are very friendly… But they are on the other side of the river, so not in the center. It is close by bus anyway, but I you want to spend time in the discos, you will have to find a taxi to come back there, and you may check as well, but it is possible that they close at midnight.
I have tried to stay at the Rus Hotel…. They proposed me a single room for 45 Euros….but without heater (and it was minus 33°C outside), so I think that actually, they did not want any foreigner at this time. No English.
If you are alone, or want to meet local people, homestay is the best solution. Generally, it is about 15 to 20 Euros per night, breakfast included. Contact any travel agent in Irkustk and they will find a family for you. I met some dutch tourists who booked a homestay in Moscow and they could not find the house of their family, so if you book from outside, be sure to have a map, telephon number, clear information

PS: Check the price by email before: on virtualtourist some people write that Angara is more than 180 USD, but I have paid about 40 Euros, others say Arena is 15 Euros, and they asked me 40 Euros. Maybe the price is very different in winter....????

TURBAZA: LISTVYANKA (LAKE BAIKAL)

Pros :
- Terribly cheap.

Cons :
- Toilet is hole-in-the-ground outside but after being China-trained, it was alright for me.
- I was unable to locate running water to wash my hands. I inquired about it and the Russian woman-in-charge inexplicably yelled at me. I had to walk to Lake Baikal outside to wash them.
- No bathroom
- Very large room with beds stacked in the entire room, making it appear very utilitarian.

Dorms : R50 (R30 = US$1, July 2000)

Baikal Dunes: Baikal paradise

"Baikal Dunes" holiday center is a small, but very comfortable tourist center. It is situated in the most picturesque place of lake Baikal between Cape Malyi Kolokolnyi and Gendarme Cliff in Academical Bay, on the territory of Pribaikalsky National Park, which is one of the first-rate parks of Russia. It is one of the most beautiful places of the lake - taiga mountainsides, which are more than 20 million years old, slip down to the Baikal; a lot of big and small rocks, cedars, larches, blank rebby beach - create excellent mood. The nature of this bay you can see on pictures of artists, landscape painters, on labels of different goods, on TV programs about nature. It is unique place of lake Baikal where the average temperature is above zero degrees Centigrade, that's why the bay has its own unique climate. In May and June, when the ice has already moved, the water in the lake become the clearest, and you can see the lake floor at a depth of 40m. The bank of the lake is blanked with luxuriant lilac flowers - it is the Labrador tea (wild rosemary, rhododendron) - flower, which is noted to The Red Book. During the water walking it may be cool, that's why it is necessary to take warm jackets and caps with you. There is the warmest weather in July and August and you can go swimming and getting a tan on the beach. September covers all forest with unusual bright colors: yellow, red, orange: . You can go mushroom-kicking to the forest. It is not rare to meet squirrels, birds, wild animals here. Holiday center "Baikal Dunes" was opened in 1998. It is built in unique place, which is surrounded with cliffs and beautiful Siberian taiga by one side, and with lake Baikal by the other side. There are no automobile roads; this place is separated out of civilization for tens of kilometers. You can meet wild animals or dip into water of the most ancient lake on the planet. Here you can really touch original nature and your rest remains in your memory as an afterglow.
