The hotel is in a great central location. Our room was superior with top end fixtures and room appointments. Our only issue was that the internet in our room did not work so we had to go to the lobby for wifi.

Loved getting a taste of Japan (unexpectedly, we booked it last minute and didn't even realize) in Siberia. Love the toilets, the huge bed and the breakfast we got, which was included was really, really good! Highly recommend.

Bit strange finding a Japanese themed upmarket hotel in the middle of Siberia but I'm not complaining it was fantastic. Loved all the bathroom additions and many Japanese hotel functions that made the small time spent in the room really nice.
