From the outside, the hotel looks rather grim and uninviting. Inside, it's not much better. The bedroom was comfortable to a point, but there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke (also right through the hotel). The carpet was almost clean. The bed was like sleeping on a wooden board. There was no air conditioning, and it was stiflingly hot. The bar had no atmosphere whatsoever and resembled an airport departure lounge. (An empty one). It closed at 9pm. So there was nothing to do for the rest of the evening. On the plus side, the views were good from certain rooms (not mine!) ant the breakfast was passable if unimaginative. May have been excellent in Soviet times, but we have moved on from then. The hotel hasn't.
