Real Russian Hotels

The best source for discount hotel reservations in Moscow, St Petersburg and in more than 500 cities throughout Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and the region.

Our rates for rooms, apartments and suites provide options for the budget traveller, tourist or business person that you will be hard pressed to match, let alone beat.

If you book a room for three or more nights in Russia we will issue the Russian Visa Invitation Letter free of charge.

How do I get started?

Simply fill in the form below telling us where and when you want to go and click the Search Hotels button. We will then display available hotels and the total price, inclusive of all taxes and fees, for any available rooms for the dates selected.

Are there any dates that hotels will be more expensive?

Yes, like most hotels, the periods around Christmas (both Western and Orthodox), New Year and public holidays are usually busier and therefore usually more expensive.

In Moscow there are trade fairs and exhibitions throughout the year at which times the hotels may charge higher room rates at their discretion dependent upon local conditions and available for rooms.

In St. Petersburg, you can expect to pay higher room rates during the peak tourist season from May to August.

I’ve found just what I need, how can I pay for my booking?

The price you see is the total price you pay, no “prices from” or “bait rates”, there are no hidden extras or additional charges and as all services are fully paid for in advance there are no nasty surprises on arrival!

You have several options to pay for your visa including:

The quoted rates must be fully prepaid before we confirm your hotel and are subject to our standard booking terms and conditions.

Hotels may also be booked directly from our Moscow office, payment there may be made by Credit or Debit card or by cash in Russian Roubles.

Can I cancel a booking once I have made it?

Yes, generally you can cancel a booking if it is within 5 days of check in without penalty, however many hotels have their own specific policy that may extend or reduce this period. Please make sure you read the cancellation notes for the hotel before you book.

Why can’t I see hotel prices and availability for a specific date?

We only show hotel prices and availability for a maximum of seven months in advance.
