Hotel Evrazia is a middelclass hotel and is centrally located in Ekaterinburg, about 10 minutes from the railway station and 20 minutes drive from the airport. Accommodation The hotel was built in 1967 and offers value accommodation in twins and singles. All rooms have private facilities.
This is defintely some left over from the Soviet era. A dezhurnaya is garding each floor and the rooms are old fashioned (or is it retro style?) but clean. The toilets on the floor better go undescribed... To shower you have to go the first floor and pay an extra 20 Roubles. Some rooms already have been renovated and have a bathroom attached though.
Sorry y'all, I have no idea what it's like to find public crash pads, I stayed at friends houses the entire time.
But from what I experienced, don't stay at anyone's house that you haven't actually met, like a friend of a friend's house, unless you are with that first friend.
Don't expect the hotels to be the same quality as their counterparts in the rest of the world, even mexico hotels are probably better....
What can I say, we stayed in the semi luxe room and it was not luxe I can tell you, but clean and we had two rooms, one with the beds and t.v ( wich not worked) and one with a sofa and table and toilet and showerrroom. No breakfast, but we bouhgt bread and used the window ledge as a fridge ( it was winter so that was a cold place)
There was not a water kettle but they gave me one so every morning I went downstairs and they boiled water for me so we could have coffe and bread with cheese and yoghyrt
You can have look at Lenin outside, and see the fire station and the local goverment!
This is an sample of hotels in the country side, they can get worse or better. But bearwe people do not speak english so communicating if not speaking russian can prove difficult
The rooms are big, with a big bathroom, fridge and telly. Breakfast is okay, and the people are nice. It is a small hotel with only 5 rooms. And actualy I did not want to tell you aboyut this hotel because it is my little secret. But I found the adress , but it is listed now in the Lonely Planet.
It is central near the tram stop, but you can do most things on foot.
There is a quiet atmpsphere in the horel, and when they know you people make you extra cups of tea. the only - thing is they do not speak English, but they do try to understand you, but be aware they do not regrestir your visa, yoy have to go to the ovir by your self or let a travel agency do it
Oh and when you book the hotel your self it will safe you at least 10 euro. we booked in Holland for one night ( needed the visa support and it cost us per persom 40 euro,s while i booked some extra trough the hotel and it cost us 25 euro's per room!!!) But the same with all the hotels in Ekat, they are putting up their price everty time we visit there
I was fortunate enough to rent a flat in Eburg. It was a true exercise in everyday Russian life. Anyone can stay in a hotel, flats are more like upscale camping. :-) feel the culture
They call it a one-room flat but that doesn't include the kitchen area, toilet, and shower/tub areas. For about $10-20 per day, you can get a better cultural feel.
There a few hotels Ekatrinbug, I stay always with friends, but the Atrium is expencive, but hotel Iset it central and cheaper, and they registeryour pasport for you, safes a trip to the OVIR. I mean I use tostay withfriends, but now when back i stay in a small hotel. Most hoptels are expemcive in ekat. at lest 80 dollars a room when you are lucky, and the prices are going up. Most expencive is the atrium. nice but 250 dollar a night. Service is good but standard rooms are not that big.
The iset is set in the middle of the centre, but there to prices are going up, aspecgaly now they are ronvating it. here proces are at least 80 dollars for a standard
the plus about those are they will registre you, so you do not have to bother going to the Ovir your self
It is build in the shape of a sickle!
And it is big That is the iset. Atrium is just big new buidling, just a bit out of the centre, but near the circus
