This art nouveau diamond in the rough recalls Samara's heyday in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, though from the outside at least the hotel has seen better days. The ornate lobby is eye-catching. The modern rooms can't match the decor, though they are clean and comfortable, and the central location is within easy walking distance of the Volga and sights.
The most expensive room in the hotel is the one where opera singer Fyodor Chaliapin once stayed, using the balcony as a stage to sing for a crowd of adoring fans.
