This hotel is right next to the forests and cross country ski area. In spring it becomes a great place for outdoor jogging or walks in the nearby park. The staff here provide service with a smile which is rare in Russia. They are even a bit chatty which is a nice change. Check in was smooth and quick, but... More

Santa is typical Sakhalin resort hotel with large room, with enough comfort. Bathroom basic but everything in. They have sauna. More outside the city with the green nature around, so well located for joggers. Like a lot places on Sakhalin, restaurant can make excellent seafood, breakfast okay but not exceptional. Some Japanese influence in the building.

This was my first time in Sakhalin and I hadn't high expectations in relation to the hotel. I was very well impressed. Rooms are very comfortable, worm and has all what you need. Food and breakfast is not the best but personel is very friendly even with limitations to speak other lenguage than russian. Location is far from city centre... More

Great hotel, location and service. Definitely one of the best hotels in Sakhalin. If you decide to stay here, get the ski package deal, it's cheaper. Make sure that you get breakfast as well, as there is not many places to eat around the city. It has a sauna as well, it's free for the people staying there. Overall, would... More

Probably one of the top if not the best one in town. Very convenient for business trips and business events. Good food, nice location. Rather on the expensive side but pretty good value for money considering rates in other hotels in Yuzhno.

it wasn't the first time, we stayed at Santa during our Sahalin trips, and most probably not the last. The hotel has everything, we need. It is located in a quiet, foresty area just outside the city, something that suits us perfect. There is a good internet connection, a decent breakfast, a couple of bars/restaurants in the area, as well... More

Santa is my favorite hotel in Yuzhno, it was designed and built by the Japanese, so it has this calming peaceful atmosphere. The service has always been great, the food in the restaurant is delicious but slightly expensive, so include taxi rides in your budget. There is a small convenience store/gift shop on the first floor. There are no other... More

Friendly staff, huge rooms with comfy beds, 5MB daily wifi allowance, gym, hot tubs, pool/snooker room, cross country skiing... ...but strangely empty when I was there, and all one step away from being what westerners would consider "normal". Nothing you could quite put a finger on, but could definitely be considered quirky! Fairly mediocre food in the main restaurant, but... More
