Where to stay in Yaroslavl

Places to stay in Yaroslavl might not be as numerous as in some other Russian cities, but you can still find a good selection of accommodation to satisfy a range of tastes and budgets. The city is home to several large hotels, ranging from the luxurious, with on-site spas and swimming pools, to more modest economy options. A handful of small, charming boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts offer more intimate lodging. Fully equipped apartments and budget hostels round out the selection. Because accommodation in Yaroslavl is not particularly plentiful, it's always wise to make reservations ahead of time.
