We stayed for a single night while on a bus tour. As many other reviewers have stated, this hotel is very much in the USSR style.
The first room we were assigned smelled as if a waterlogged ashtray had sat under the bed for about 6 months. Fortunately we were able to switch to an identical, non stinky room. The room key is an actual key on a very heavy key chain (we figure about 2 pounds). The room we had was very small with two single beds perpendicular to each other. The only place to set a suitcase was on the floor - bit of a tripping hazard. The windows open very wide and are your only option for ventilation. No fans or air conditioning.
The bathroom is also tiny but sufficient. Our shower head rotated on it's own and succeeded in soaking the entire bathroom.
We found the breakfast very heavy on unidentifiable fried meats.
Overall, it's relatively clean but if you have another option I suggest you take it.
