Yaroslavl hotels and hostels
The ‘Volga Pearl’ is an atmospheric ship that is docked at the river bank – pricier rooms have water views. Polished maple furniture and plenty of natural light ensure that the place does not feel too cramped.
Located on the central pedestrian street, this historic hotel is a throwback to prerevolutionary Russia. High ceilings and architectural details give it an air of faded elegance, despite the dark entrance.
Ring Premier Hotel
This modern six-storey building offers predictable but plush rooms with heated bathroom floors and king-size beds. The slick business hotel also contains a well-equipped fitness centre and an Irish pub (a must for any four-star hotel).
Overlooking the Kotorosl River, this is the city’s largest centrally located hotel, leftover from Soviet times. It’s the usual concrete slab building, but rooms are completely renovated, simply decorated and comfortably furnished.
It looks sketchy from the outside, but the service is friendly and the recently-renovated rooms are up-to-snuff.
A mammoth hotel that is within walking distance of the train station.
