Okay, so the place itself is very nice and atmospheric. The location is great, right next to a cliff from where the sunset is gorgeous. The sleeping comfort is good and the rooms are alright. The negative side was the food for me. First of all, I couldn't exclude it from my room rate which I could have lived with...

The price for this place includes breakfast and dinner, which is non-negotiable. Food was ok. Staff were extremely busy and often didn't seem that bothered about helping us with our questions. Excursions were well-planned and should we visit Lake Baikal again, we would probably go to Nikita for booking day trips around the island. I would not stay here again...

The ladies at the reception are helpful and friendly. Since they need to temporarily keep our passports for registration purposes, they keep reminding us if we had taken back our passports upon check out. Booking the tours with them was really a plain sailing process. No communication issue at all since they speak fluent English! Thanks one of the ladies...

Well I went in winter and I have to say that the service is quite good. Breakfast and dinner are included, really tasty and there are lots of food, so you will be full. The bedroom was hot, which is really good in Siberia, comfortable and clean. There is a bar named Bistro, is a french bar and you can...

We been trying to book a stay at this place since it has good reviews online but unsuccessful with operators who were not responsive. Upon arrival to the island & village, we think why not came to check it out. Booked a meal for 4 person a day earlier & not feeling welcomed upon arrival was an unpleasant experience. Guided...

What a beautiful place! Exactly the kind of experience you are looking for in Siberia. It's clean, it's warm, it's cosy. Food is really good and the location is great, right next to Shaman Rock! Only problem: rather rude staff. The girl that organises the excursions showed me to my room. She is friendly, until you start asking questions. Then...

Nice homestead and probably the most comfortable in the island. Nevertheless, our group was disappointed with the meals included. Very limited portion. We were late on the first day for the dinner, and left with very little food, even it is served ala-carte. Left earlier on the day we check out and was stunned with the prepacked breakfast, which include...

The Very Good rating is based on having a perfect room on the second floor with a view of Lake Baikal and Shaman Rock. We saw spectacular sunsets. The room was very large and comfortable. However the food is not good (do not go for the meal plan). Room quality is uneven, my fellow traveller had a very small dark...

I definitely not recommend this place. We have now been traveling for over 4 months and this must be the worst place we have ever been to. This mainly due to the poor reception, service and the old fashion attitude like for example not including free wifi. In every place we have been so far wifi has been available for...
