Alexandra has just reviewed the budget accommodation scene in Murmansk. A total of of over 100 apartments seem to be offered, plus 20 hotels and “boutique hotels”. Main sources of apartment rental information are Arenda51 and Sutki51″. Each lists about 80 apartments in the 1500-2500/night range ($50-80/night). Both outfits offer a standard set of services associated with apartment rental: receipts, registrations, train station and airport pickups. In Murmansk these are cheap: $10 for the train station and $20 for the airport. Neither site has an English version.
