Tourist Hotel Omsk
Unique Quality: We didn't stay here but its right across from the Mayak Hotel so very good location and very central to the city.
My stay at this hotel was quite reasonable. The room was fine but it is not a 5 star hotel, perhaps a 3. The room was kept very clean and the staff were reasonably friendly. I would recommend this hotel for someone looking for decent accommodations. I paid approximately $60 per night. The room had a T.V. with a limited selection of cable television stations, a refrigerator, a private bathroom and a telephone.
Unique Quality: I had to get used to the differences in the way hotels in Russia operate. There is a manager for each floor. Upon leaving, you leave your key with that manager and upon returning they will give you your key. Guest are allowed but may have to leave after a certain hour. The may be allowed to stay the night if they are also registered in that room. They must present their (internal) passport (if they are a Russian citizen) as identification to be registered.
NOTE: In Russia, internal passports are used as the ONLY official form of identification. Tourist use their passports as identification and it must be kept with you at all times.
I should also warn you that prostitution exist in Russia. It is not illegal but not official sanctioned by the government. On many occasions prostitutes called my hotel room. They have a way of getting the numbers of rooms of foreign tourist.
Directions: Near the Om and Irtysh rivers, next to the Mayak (pronounced MA-YAHK, not MARK) Hotel. Across the street from ZAGS (where weddings held).
