Shelestoff Hotel is a great choice for a stay in Kostroma. Guests can grab a bite to eat at the restaurant, and the sauna makes for a relaxing end to the day. There's also a steam room, and rooms offer jetted tubs and room service.
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well served and coffee was great.
Cons: Beds were old and uncomfortable. So was the TV set. There are no elevators as well.
Cons: Back to the USSR!
Cons: Old design and little off the center. The only real problem is that you would believe that the neighbour is in your room, so thin are the walls. You go to sleep & wake up with him..:)
