Lodging in Russia
April 27, 2006 11:26


There are several kinds of accommodation means in Russia, which provide the tourists with the hotel services. These are hotels, motels, health resorts, holiday hotels, rest bases and tourist hostels, small vessels in bays, motor-ships serving as hotels, etc. Formed at present is a new system of classification of hotels and other accommodation means, which will take into account the WTO recommendations and will make the hotel service in Russia as close as possible to the international standards.
 

The hotel infrastructure in Russia is developed quite actively. The accommodation fund in the capitals and large cities amounts to tens thousands of places (e.g., in Moscow - 65 thousand places, in St. Petersburg - about 35 thousand places). Hundreds of hotels built in Russia during the Soviet era have already been reconstructed or are being reconstructed now so as to meet the growing demands. In every cultural and tourist center there are several hotels with restaurants, casinos, bars, parking areas, 24-hour room service, swimming pools, saunas and training rooms suitable for foreign guests. The process of very active construction of mini-hotels for 10 - 100 suits with participation of private investors is now under way and in the suburbs of cities, the construction of motels and mini-hotels of cottage type. Such accommodation objects closely cooperate with the tourist companies and are attractable by specific, more home-like comfort. These objects are well guarded, fully provided with all possible kinds of entertainment and communication, they are often located not far from a city in the country-side, which only adds to their attractiveness. Besides, all over the country and, in particular, in Samara, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Murmansk and Vladivostok, there are opened now the hotels for 200 - 300 suits, and this is done with due regard for the development of business contacts. At the same time, appearing annually in the cultural and business centers of Russia are new high-class spacious hotels of international hotel networks, namely: Hayatt, Marriott, Radisson, Sheraton, ACCOR, Holiday Inn, Hilton etc.
 

The price level for hotel services is quite different. For economy-class trips, our domestic tourists often choose inexpensive hotels with the minimum set of services costing about 150 rubles for single person (about five euros or dollars) a day without meals. However, during the tourist trips with the business, educational or recreation purposes, the Russians prefer to stay in the hotels costing 300 - 600 rubles for single person (about 10 - 20 euros or dollars) a day with breakfast or two meals. For foreign guests, comfort and safety are more important and, therefore, they choose most frequently the hotels of higher class than the Russians with the cost for a single beginning from $50 a day with breakfast.
