Sleeping Eating

Three blocks west of Lenin Square, the Hotel Pechora (ul Lenina) has decent but expensive rooms aimed at oil businessmen. A cheaper veterinary dormitory is only for those with connections. The hotel has the best-value restaurant (mains R100), with good, cheap breakfasts and a wide menu, including excellent reindeer and wild-mushroom zharkoye (hot pot). Further from the centre, Sibir Restaurant (mains R140) is also recommended, with strings of Christmas lights on the walls, candles on the tables and some private booths. Lakomka is a no-frills café for sandwiches, salads and microwaved lunches. It's downstairs at the rear of the public auditorium next to the kitschy new Lukoil building. Its kotlet Naryan-Marski is a ground meat patty served with a dollop of mashed potato. There's a 24-hour supermarket around the corner from the hotel.
