Not all hotels of rosa Khutor resort can promise their guests proximity to ski slopes and lifts. This does not apply to large network complexes that have a world level of standards. We are talking about small hotels that were opened by local residents for guests of the resort. The owners of the Guest House Pyramid are just those lucky ones who managed to open a hotel in close proximity to the ski infrastructure. You can get from the airport (50 km) by taxi, train or bus. No shuttle service is available. Guests with pets are not accepted. Smoking is allowed only in specially designated areas. Check-in time at 14.00, check-out at 12.00.Check Rates

It is located near three mountain slopes. From here you can walk to five lifts at once. On the territory of the hotel around the building there are flower beds, trees are planted. Motorists are provided with free parking.
The owners are big fans of the history and culture of Ancient Egypt. Near the main entrance, they installed an exact copy of the pyramid of Cheops, reduced by 29 times. This to some extent justified the name of the hotel, although the building itself is somewhat reminiscent of a truncated tetrahedron, but only from a certain angle. Inside the pyramid there is a place for meditation. For those who are engaged in relaxing and wellness practices, there is no need to explain how cool it is.
A nice bonus for guests is their own spring with spring water in the courtyard. A printout containing micro and macro elements is placed at the reception. The chemical analysis of water is impressive. Drinking will benefit and relieve digestive problems.

“Good location, close to shops, restaurants, cafes, glaco to the most beautiful mountains and cable car. The hotel does not have a kitchen, but there is a microwave. Clean towels. I was in a single room. There is no shampoo, you need to take your own. Cramped even for one. It’s nice to communicate with the staff. Always ready to offer help or solve organizational issues. For a more comfortable stay, I recommend booking a room of a larger area. * squares really not comilfo” Nelya, Russia
You can refuse food and organize it yourself. The hotel has a microwave, it is located next to the entrance. In the next house (Berezovaya, 59) there is a restaurant “Adriano”. This is one of the catering points of the family restaurant chain. At one time, the brand began with an ordinary pizzeria, and now its Italian restaurants are considered one of the best in Krasnaya Polyana. The menu offers a huge selection of pastas, Mediterranean dishes, pizzas with all sorts of fillings, juicy steaks and an abundance of salads. The kitchen prepares meals on request with room service.
On the street there are cafes, shops, eateries. You can always find a kitchen to taste and at an affordable price. In the village there are many good and familiar institutions. For example, in January 2020, the first McDonald’s (Estonian, 95A) opened in Esto-Sadka. The organizers took care of the motorists, arranging the parking, and the people, making the dining room very spacious and roomy.
One of the cheapest catering facilities is the dining room “Let’s Eat” (Estonian, 39). It is located in the courtyards of houses, the stand installed on the road will indicate which arch you need to dive into. The kitchen offers a standard selection of dishes, but at very reasonable prices. Inexpensive khinkalnaya is located opposite the shopping center “Gorki Mall” on the street Estonian. There is also a kiosk selling burgers.
Dining room “Chalet” is located on Berezova Street in the hotel of the same name. Good cuisine, private terrace, cozy courtyard, lake with ducks – in a word, comfortable. Another dining room “Sat down, ate” opened on the second floor of the house, which operates a supermarket “Magnit” (Estonian. 33). New interior, reasonable prices, traditional lunch menu.
If there is a desire to visit fashionable restaurants, then there will be no shortage of them. Each premium class hotel has on its territory a restaurant with author’s and haute cuisine, a bar with a good wine list and a selection of cocktails.
The hotel is chosen primarily because of its proximity to the ski slopes and lifts on them. The owners have long calculated this trend and prepared to meet guests fully armed: ski passes with discounts are sold at the reception, there is a room for storing skis and sports equipment, to the nearest lift to go leisurely 5 minutes, to others a little longer.
Carousel-1 (450 m) – gondola lift leads to the slopes and facilities of the sports and tourist complex “Mountain Carousel”. In winter, 36 tracks of different levels of difficulty, a complex of springboards for freestyle, 4 freerides open here. There are illuminated trails for evening skiing.
The ski season opens in September and is divided into 4 main periods:

The Alpika Service ski area is located on the slope of Mount Aibga. Alpine territory begins from a height of 2 thousand meters. Here are located alpine meadows, where you can find plants of the pre-glacial period. The terminus of the cable car on the Alpique is called the “Shelter of the Winds”. The peak is located at an altitude of 2256 meters. Here you can visit the highest-altitude bath in the resort. This “Not Easy” with panoramic windows is officially registered in the Russian Guinness Book of Records.
The owners of the hotel have provided comfortable accommodation for families with children, but there is trouble with children’s entertainment. The building is too small to equip a children’s club. And is it necessary if there are so many interesting things around! The village has an excellent infrastructure for organizing leisure activities for young guests.

The hotel is located at the foot of the Achishkho Range. Translated from the Adyghe language, it sounds like Horse or Goat Mountain. If you look at the ridge more closely, the outlines of one and the hills really look like the head of one of these animals. Thanks to the gentle slopes, there are many hiking trails that the child can cope with.
The Mzymta Mountain River is 200 metres away. It divides the village into two halves. On both banks there are embankments. You can walk along them, and at the same time visit the entertainment facilities located nearby. The embankments have pleasant names – Polyanka, Panorama and Lavender. Benches are placed everywhere, trees are planted. The vegetation of the embankment resembles a botanical garden.
The lifts take you to the Black Pyramid Mountains and the Psehako Range.
Staying in the guest house “Pyramid”, guests first of all save money. Service and conditions are suitable for unpretentious tourists.
