Hotels near Ekaterinburg Arena in Russia (Central Stadium)

Hotel Ekaterinburg (Yekaterinburg) football ground - FIFA World Cup 2018

Ekaterinburg Arena

The Central Stadium, which will be called Ekaterinburg Arena for the purpose of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, is one of the 12 venues which will host the event, across eleven cities. The stadium, or arena, was constructed in 1957 and has a seating capacity of 35,000. Constructed under the Soviet Union, it continues to serve the Russian Federation today in the noble cause of sport, both national and international.

During the World Cup 2018 event, demand for budget accommodation near to the ground will be at a premium. That’s why it’s wise to book ahead of the time. Also, remember, no hotel will have every feature required. Some may offer breakfast, but may not be close to the sports venue. So the earlier the room is booked, the better for you, the guest.

City of Ekaterinburg (Yekaterinburg)

Located on the east of the Ural mountain range, Ekaterinburg, or Yekaterinburg as it’s more properly called in Russian, is the fourth most populous city in Russia. It is famous for the Church On The Blood, built during the earlier decades of the century. This church is built on the site where the Russian Royal family was executed during the Russian Revolution in the last century.

The city museum features mementos of the lost Royal family. The city was known as Sverdlovsk during the time of the Soviet Union. Its former name was restored with the establishment of the Russian Federation.

The city is built on the Iset River. Special features of the city include a zoo, some beautiful, historic churches, the Historic Square and the football stadium.

Not Just A Sports Haven

For those whose interest extends beyond sport, this city seems like a fascinating place to visit. Hopefully the visitors will have a chance to explore here. But it probably depends on how the 2018 FIFA World Cup goes.

Where To Stay ?  Or Hotels On A Budget…

Where to find the perfect budget hotel in Ekaterinburg will be the million dollar question in the coming months. Others might say cheap hotels, but let’s not use that word. What most football fans will need is a roof over their heads for the duration of their stay, at an affordable price.

That’s not an unreasonable demand. Tickets - both air tickets and match tickets - will be a major expenditure. To keep things balanced, a nice hotel which offers an attractive rate and good service would be the best thing in the world.

Budget Hotels In Ekaterinburg

Like most cities of note, Ekaterinburg has its share of high-end hotels with all the trimmings. However,if you shop around, you’ll find a range of less expesive hotels offering great facilities at a much more affordable price.

This would mean a daily rate of about £30.00 - £40.00 (British) or 30 euro to 45 euro per night, give or take a rouble, with currency fluctuations being what they’re like.

If you think that rate sounds expensive, you should check out the services that hotels which charge four times that rate are offering. 

What You Can Expect

For a three to two star hotel in Ekaterinburg, here’s what you can expect.

We know that staying connected to our homes and businesses is very important when you’re out of town. Most of us can’t switch off completely, no matter how much we wish we could. It’s a great relief, therefore, to know that most budget grade hotels appear to offer free Wi-Fi.

Feedback appears to indicate that the wi-fi signal is reliable in these hotels, so they’re a good choice. Also, if you’re able to hire a car during the event, you’d naturally be interested in finding a safe, affordable place to leave the car while you sleep.

So please be aware that many hotels in this range offer free parking, which is a huge advantage. Many in this range also feature air-conditioning and offer a free breakfast, which is a definite plus point.
