Yekaterinburg hotels to receive star ratings

Over the course of the next several years leading up to World Cup 2018, Yekaterinburg's hotels will face a certification procedure that will assign a number of stars as a rating for each hotel.

Approximately 40 out of the 99 hotels that have operated in Yekaterinburg since 2005 have gone through the category assigning process so far, the Yekaterinburg Council said, according to URBC.ru.

As a result of the starring process, two hotels were deemed to be five-star hotels, 12 are four-stars and 17 were awarded a three-star rating.

A roundtable will be held on June 20 at the Yekaterinburg Council headquarters to discuss assigning a rating to all Yekaterinburg hotels, URBC.ru reports.

Cities hosting World Cup 2018 games are required to assign star ratings to their hotels.
