Description of Shuya

Shuya is located in the Ivanovo region. For two hundred years, the Shuya princes owned the Shuya, the most famous of which was Vasily Shuisky. Historically, Shuya was the center of the soap and textile industry. Therefore, apparently, the city emblem is a yellow bar of soap on a red background.

Hotels, motels and where to sleep

Hotel "Golden Lion" Zolotoy Lev, st. Anikin, 7A (in the northern part of the city). ☎ +7 (49351) 3-32-21. Economy: 450 rubles per person, double room with amenities: 1800 rubles (2013). Located a bit on the outskirts, but quite tolerable. In winter, it is very difficult to drive along an icy street, where the track is a high and narrow ice trough. Amenities in the rooms (standard) or on the block (economy). Reviews are somewhat contradictory.
Hotel "Old Shuya", st. Sovetskaya, 8 (in the center). ☎ +7 (49351) 3-85-70, +7 (906) 513-70-30. Double room: 1800–2100 rubles, places in a hostel: 400 rubles per person (2013). A hotel without frills, which also offers apartments for days and places in the hostel for any period from days to months. All hotel rooms are comfortably furnished, but very modestly furnished. Mostly bad reviews.
Grand Hotel Shuya, st. Lenin, 2 (center). ☎ +7 (4932) 93-93-69. Economy: 600 rubles per person, double room with amenities: 3080 rubles (2013). Very nice hotel, clean, bright, with excellent but unobtrusive staff. Economy implies a multi-room - apparently without amenities. Breakfast can upset gourmets and those who do not like porridge - but they are fed for slaughter. The staff is slow as, by the way, and diligent. The desire to meet high standards is a bit tiring. The hotel is very well located in the city center. Free Wi-Fi in the restaurant and in the lobby, in the rooms paid wired Internet.
