For a hotel in provinical Russian city where foreigners rarely tread, it's a soid choice. Common areas and rooms are spotlessly clean. Good security. Polite service. Air conditioning with electronic thermostat. Mini fridge. Newer bath fixtures, shower curtain. Decent WiFi. Bed is a bit on the firm side but sufficiently comfortable. Several cafes/bars just a few steps from the gate. Or course, it's not the Ritz or the Intercontinental. Breakfast choices minimal and mostly from instant/prepackaged goods. Still, nothing to complain about.
