Accommodations range from very deluxe to basic, depending on the region of the country. Hotels are usually quite clean, comfortable and more than adequate. There are several classes of hotels (hostels, bed-and-breakfasts, two-, three-, four- and five-star), which must be specified when booking. In summer, the best bargains are the dachas
(country houses) outside of Moscow—stays can be arranged at Moscow travel agencies upon arrival.
