The Intourist is easily spotted by the fascinating but rather tacky mural of Mother Russia above the entranceway. The old Soviet stalwart has clean but unspectacular rooms with USSR-issued red curtains and red duvets...

Sure, it’s a bit of a Soviet relic, but the Rus has clean, comfortable rooms, helpful staff and a good location on pl Lenina near the park. To use the common shower costs R60.
Its exterior may be ugly but inside the views across the bay to the castle can’t be beaten. The cheapest rooms are unrenovated. Rates include a morning sauna.
Appealing minihotel with just eight rooms decorated with sturdy wooden furniture. There’s also a sauna and restaurant in the complex.
Although the rates are lower than at the Rizhskaya and other similar, ex-Soviet-era midrange options, once you take the exorbitant R300 registration fee into account, this place is a lot less attractive.
For those who want to wake up to the same morning air that once inspired the master, this well-maintained hotel is an option. It’s also the location of the town’s poshest restaurant – which isn’t terribly fancy.
Next to the bus station, and across from the impressive WWII monument in Pobedy pl, this Soviet relic offers small, well-worn unrenovated rooms. The renovated rooms are decent and much larger, the best ones even stretching to air-conditioning...
