Where to stay in Irkutsk

A famous stop on the Trans-Siberian railway, historically rich Irkutsk serves as a perfect base for trips to Lake Baikal. With its steadily increasing popularity among tourists, the city offers a good selection of places to stay. The center of the city has the highest concentration of luxury and boutique hotels, but you can also find quite a few in other neighborhoods. Numerous bed and breakfasts and plenty of hostels offer a good alternative to hotels. Likewise, renting a fully furnished apartment is another popular option. Note that the number of available apartments significantly increases during the summer season, when most tourists visit the city.
