Since ancient times, Vologda - the same age as Moscow - was considered the capital of the North. Ancient buildings, wooden architecture and dozens of museums - the city has a unique historical and cultural heritage.
Elegant lace and delicious butter are often called traditional symbols of Vologda. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay with family, work colleagues or friends. Vologda hotels are designed for a wide variety of travelers - the city has budget accommodation options and luxury apartments with spa services.
Vologda seems very cozy and compact to tourists, the hotels of which are concentrated in the historical center. Five minutes from the Kremlin is "AurA", where guests are promised a wonderful holiday at an affordable price.
The small hotel "AurA" (Vologda, Blagoveshchenskaya str., 54) is located in an old mansion. Only eleven rooms are available for booking, due to which the management manages to maintain a certain level of service and reputation.
Single, standard, superior and comfort - all rooms are equipped with a refrigerator, air conditioning, LCD TV andcrockery set.
The hotel does not have its own restaurant, but you can always order delivery to your room from the neighboring hotel "History" with a 5% discount. Breakfast for guests is served in a small buffet located on the basement floor. There are always cereals, dairy products, desserts and hot drinks on the menu.
Clean and cozy
One of the main criteria for travelers when choosing a hotel is cleanliness, but there are no problems with this at the AurA Hotel. Guest reviews note the excellent condition of furniture and plumbing, fresh renovation and attentive attitude from the staff.
The registration procedure takes a matter of minutes, and at the counter there are always brochures about the sights of a city like Vologda. Hotels in the center are located in small mansions, which causes some inconvenience to guests. “AurA” is a pleasant exception, Wi-Fi works perfectly throughout the territory, and the rooms have a large number of sockets and tea sets.
- small car park;
- noise from the street;
- uncomfortable pillows.
For guests of the Atrium hotel, the trip to the railway station will take only five minutes, and in fifteen minutes they will be able to reach the Vologda Kremlin at a leisurely pace.
An unusual building stands out prominently in the urban landscape. The hotel project was implemented on the initiative of the Business Communication Club and the Government of the Vologda Region.
Hotel “Atrium” (Vologda, Gertsen St., 27)located in the administrative center, so most often they stop here during business trips.
Business class, suites and apartments - regardless of the category of the room, they are equipped with a refrigerator, TV and telephone. For fruitful work, there is a desk and stationery.
For an additional fee, guests can use the service center with a computer and office equipment, as well as rent a conference room with all necessary equipment.
The Atrium restaurant is ideal for business meetings, negotiations or romantic dates. In the mornings, a breakfast buffet is served here (cost 250 rubles), and in the afternoon on weekdays there is a special offer “Express lunch”.
The most modest room at the Atrium Hotel without breakfast will cost 3,800 rubles. For Vologda, this is above average, so guests expect appropriate living conditions and service for their money.
Most of all, guests are disappointed with breakfasts, which hardly fit the definition of a "buffet". A small selection of food and drinks, instant coffee - a rather sad picture for a business hotel.
- lack of air conditioning;
- weak Wi-Fi signal;
- lack of first aid kit;
- high prices in the restaurant;
- poor water pressure.
- located in the heart of the city;
- spacious rooms;
- friendly staff.
Immediately after the opening, Atrium was considered one of the best in such a beautiful city as Vologda. Competing hotels tirelessly worked on their own reputation and service, and over time, Atrium ceased to stand out. The management should pay attention to the opinion of regular guests and add some “freshness”, such as expanding the breakfast menu, inventing special promotions and making the stay of travelers even more comfortable.
Some tourists on trips are not limited to the cultural program. As you know, not only the soul, but also the body needs rest. SPA-hotel "Aria" (Vologda, Predtechenskaya st., 68) welcomes guests with an unusual design and a whole range of additional services.
Ultra-modern hotel located in the heart of the city. There are five categories of rooms available for booking:
- standard loft;
- luxury loft;
All rooms have an unusual design and magnificent king-size beds. For romantic getaways, we recommend choosing a suite with a transparent wall in the bathroom.
The main highlight of the Aria Hotel is the SPA area, which includes a Finnish sauna, a swimming pool with a font and a hammam. A gym is scheduled to open soon. You can clean up after relaxing treatments in the beauty salon.
To the great disappointment of the guests, visiting the SPA area is paid even in the morning, but all guests get a discountthey can count.
Traveler reviews highly appreciate the location, service and interior of the Aria Hotel. There are two restaurants on the territory, which are often booked for weddings, corporate parties and other events. Noise and loud music cause inconvenience to the guests, but, as a rule, the staff clearly controls the end time of the festivities (until 23:00).
Guests in the attic rooms pay attention to the noise of the ventilation, which works all night.
Hotel “Svetlitsa” (Vologda, Embankment of the VI Army, 123A) was opened in 2015. The building is located in the historical center of the city, close to the main attractions.
Travelers "Svetlitsa" attracts with its novelty, free parking, affordable prices and round-the-clock service. Each room has a comfortable bed, TV, Wi-Fi and tea facilities. There is a cooler with cold and hot water on the floor.
Practically no additional services are provided at the hotel. In the morning breakfasts are served in the room - the time is determined individually. According to the guests, the lack of a restaurant causes certain inconveniences, because after a busy day you don’t always want to look for a suitable place in the city.
For those who are planning a trip, who is waiting for Vologda, hotels in the center offer good conditions and prices. The main disadvantage, according to tourists, is street noise, which is more disturbing in the summer due to open windows.
“Svetlitsa” has a uniquelocation in a quiet area, which is separated from the main cultural sites only by a bridge. After a short walk you will find yourself near the Kremlin, the old market and the Lace Museum.
Reviews note the attentive attitude of the staff. The girls at the front desk are always available to give advice on the itinerary, the best restaurants or room service.
