Oasis Hotel Yartsevo Reviews
A Dump in the Middle of Nowhere Jun 21, 2009
This was a unique stop in the middle of nowhere in Russia.The Oasis hotel consists of two brick buildings at a truck stop in the middle of nowhere. In the parking lot, "Dodgy Michael" was selling shirts, CDs and vodka out of his trunk.
This place had the quite interesting. The Oasis was another Family establishment and had armed guards on patrol (to keep outsiders in line, not us). Who were walking around the perimeter at all hours.
The water here was really dodgy. It was purple and smelly water out of the taps. So no showers for you.The beds in this place were loud. Every little motion resulted in loud creaking.
You could hear everything through the walls.
You could hear the dodgy truckers yelling at all hours in the parking lot drinking dodgy vodka.
The beds, not a good place to consider sleeping naked, as they were quite rough and you give you nasty rashes. Sleep with your clothes on please.
Overall an interesting experience, for those who dare to stay here.
If you want class, pitch a tent at side of the road.
