Igumenskaja: This hotel has no fancy neon signs

The hotel is situated in second and third floor of main building (right side in the photo). It is build 1860's and renovated in the beginning of 2000. There are 20 rooms almost all single and the bathrooms and toilets are in floors.

Very clean, very safe and very quiet!

Remember. No lobby bars, no restaurant, no room service, no mini bars, no extra beds but a lot of spirit and nice wake up on the morning when bells of the main church invites you to mess. Don't even think about bringing your wine or champagnes here, there is always the possibility that you will be removed to other accommodation on the area (so I was told). I was close to forget but it's obvious, no smoking (no smoking inside whole monastery area).

If you need meals, arrange it in advance from restaurant Trapeza (only fish, no meat on the area).

Booking in advance.

You really have time of your own here. You can go to evening mess (might last 5 hours, there are so many Saints to glory). No noise, no running and no wild kids and the environment supports your voyage to your mind.
