Separate bedroom for 2 people (double bed) in 3-room apartment within 5 minutes walk from the train station and 10 min walk from the downtown (Kirov Square). It is a clean, cozy and modern apartment with a cheerful and most helpful host Tamara who speaks basic English. There is a computer with Internet and Wifi in your room, breakfast included. Perfect location close to the city center and the public transport stop, comfortable and quiet place (the flat is on the ground floor), pick up upon arrival.

Tamara's place is just by the old Irkutsk bridge across Angara river, that's 5 minutes by bus to the central Kirov square or 15 min by bus to the central market. Tamara will explain in detail how you get around the city, she is always available on the phone in case you are in trouble!
Tamara war eine Traumgastgeberin, ich habe mich wie bei guten Verwandten gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist sauber und ruhig, das Bett bequem, das Internet schnell, und Tamara hilft bei Ausflügen und kocht vorzügliches und gesundes Essen. Jederzeit wieder und vielen Dank!
Tamara welcomed us very nicely! Her flat is close to the train station. Quite clean. Very good stay.
Staying in Irkutsk its a total MUST to stay with Tamara: She is such a lovely and generous person. Even though she does not speak English, communication with Google Translator worked smoothly. We were lovely welcomed by her, were given a nice room and ended up drinking tea with her and tasting her tasty self-made jam.
We had to leave really early in the morning, so she prepared breakfast at 6am, which we never expected her to do - this was so nice!
We really really enjoyed staying with Tamara.
Tamara is very nice! Give us many advice .and even make food for us at 9 pm .the room is comfortable !
Meeting Tamara at the train station was like reuniting with a long lost family member. Staying with her was the perfect homestay experience. She cooked authentic Russian meals and gave streetsmart advice about things to do and see around Irkutsk. If my mother was Russian she would be Tamara.
Perfect.she is the most kind person that i ever met during trip and the apartment is placed near train station

About the Host, Tamara
I am Tamara, my apartment is located in a quiet area near the center of town, I am retired and do not need to get up early in the morning to go to work so you can sleep on and have breakfast with me at low pace. I speak some English - enough to understand and express myself. But anyway I believe that people always manage to understand each other if they have good will and open hearts . I like to cook,laugh and learn new things. I hope you will enjoy staying at my home place.
