I like it when hotels have made an effort, done something extra, f.ex. created an interior consept like the one in Happy Pushkin. We had booked two rooms, one double room for my sister and myself, and one single room for my mum. The double room was on the 4th floor in the "famous" dark corridor. But the room was great; spacious, quiet and with an air con. It was cleaned every day. The single room however had no air con, and since it was summer, the room obviously was quite hot. But after some days, the staff helped us with a room change, and we got two rooms with air con. I appreciated the location which was a bit outside the main street. Then it's easier to explore different areas. The area was quiet. The breakfast was good and the staff was helpful. The staff in the reception spoke english, though I don't expect everyone to speak good english.
My biggest concern was actually the fire safety. I don't know the standards of Russia, but I'm used to fire plans, emergency lights in the corridor and knowing at least two entrances. Our corridor was a dead end (and very dark as mentioned before), we also needed the key to get to the main corridor, which I didn't see the reason for. Though, I'm sure there are some ways for the hotel to improve this. In that case, I wouldn't mind at all to return to Happy Pushkin.
