Look. If you get a room with a view of the big river and one of the even bigger 'Seven Sisters' then you'll be in for a treat. That is assuming you have a George Orwell type 1984 mask on and can only look out of the window.
Look inside and sadly you're reminded of all that makes global hotel chains rushing into new markets akin to fools and angels fearing to tread etc.
A small room. Polyester pillows, uncomfortable office chair set up. Small dingy bathroom and an aircon that I SWEAR makes the same sound as someone typing on an iphone ALL NIGHT (unless, of course, I had some unwanted whatsapp addicted iphone-ist smuggled in my bags).
I ordered a Caesar Salad and what turned up was as risible as it was inedible. Drenched wet leaves, sliced fake cheese, warm indian spiced chicken and 4 cherry tomatoes. Oh, the croutons were triangles of sliced toasted white bread.
Breakfast was similarly appalling. And largely inedible.
There's some charm in a 20420402 room hotel from 1950-hell - it's anonymous, the service is 'depressed russia' and every discussion feels like an argument (even though it isn't)...
The one good thing is the Vodka is cheap, so you can numb the pain and lick the window as you search, in vain for something to rest your eyes on that doesn't remind you of where you are.
Sounds like nation building to me.
