The building of the hospice, built in the late 19th century, is situated in the best preserved street of Sviyazhsk, the Moskovskaya Street. After the revolution, when the hospice was closed, the building was for some time used as one of the buildings of the school for blind and partially sighted children. Starting from the 80s of the 20th century, the building housed the Sviyaga Hotel, which was a part of the branch of the Fine Arts Museum of Tatarstan.
In the course of restoration, the investor performed a large scope of work to make it a hotel and a café of the Sviyazhsk museum. Every room in the hotel has its own name – ”Pike”, “Bream”, etc. – after traditional types of the Sviyazhsk fish. The performed restoration included the reconstruction of a wooden out-house of the hospice complex, which also has rooms for guests of the museum, and some administrative structures, including the baths, community toilet, and the museum workshop for children.
