Perched among other historical houses and architecture along one of Kazan’s most charming streets, this spot has been offering warm hospitality since the mid-1800s. The 49 rooms are spacious and come in singles through to suites. The excellent location means guests can access the Kremlin and all the central sights with ease. Appropriately, the cosy and inviting Giuseppe Restaurant offers an Italian and Mediterranean based menu, as well as a log fire for those romantic dinners.

It’s not often you find a kids’ club under the same roof as a strip club, but here it is. The Korston Royal is another glitzy and lavish hotel that is worth the visit to check out the restaurant and bar’s bright interiors and blinding lighting schemes, even if you’re not a guest. An entertainment complex with bowling, billiards, an 80s disco, a cinema and a bunch of options for the children, it’s never a boring night in. The multiple eating choices offer a global array of food, and the slew of clubs and bars means you can grab a drink or a dance no matter what music you’re into, any time of day.

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from all of the action, the location of this hotel is excellent. Bauman street and all of the Kremlin’s sights are within a casual stroll, so home is never too far away. As the hotel is in a residential courtyard, away from the tourist thoroughfare and the main drag’s hubbub, you won’t be kept up at night. The ground floor restaurant, Aquarium, serves up seafood along with European, Asian and contemporary cuisine, and in summer you can curl up with a drink on the terrace.
