In Kamchatka's main city of Petropavlovsk, we stay at the Hotel Petropavlovsk, the first hotel in Kamchatka to provide 3-starred service. A member of the Russian Hotel Assocation, the hotel is also part of the "Best Eastern" marketing association. Its convenient location and magnificent views of Koryaksky and Avachinsky volcanoes are highlights. Each of the hotel's 71 double-occupancy rooms has a private bathroom with hot shower, television, telephone, refrigerator and mini bar. Single accommodations can also be arranged. Wireless Internet is available for an additional fee. An on-site restaurant features European and Russian cuisine, including popular local and national dishes such as meat pies, galantine, rasstegai, kurnik, pelmeni, vareniki and blini with red caviar. Although the hotel is simple by “Western” standards, it is the best in town, with great food and hospitable service.
