I liked this place. It was small, uniquely decorated with culturally authentic Russian mid century furnishings, and most certainly NOT American feeling. Our room was actually a crazy, but very large and warm collection of eastern, asian, Turkish, Russian rugs, textiles, woods, and art. The bathroom was modern enough to be fully functional, and roomy without feeling too homogenous....which is what we wanted.
The staff was quite friendly, if not compleatly trained for serviceing guests the way hotel staff are in other European and American hotels, but again, this is what we wanted.
Overall, it was a great location, quite cozy, and fun, not trendy or cookie cutter, and run by a very sweet and concientious young staff.
