stayed here 2 weeks in december on business. found the hotel very pleasant, but is more expensive than you would think , i paid 3000Rubles per night (approx £60) for a single room in which you couldn't swing the proverbial cat! seriously small, single bed and suitecase, the room was full! bathroom was just as compact. everywhere was clean , strippey bed linen was a suprise!
wifi was dreadfull, dont book a room and be depending on it, in the loby was strong enough.
breakfast was good and the dinner was also ok. dont expect to book anything to your room though, its cash payments in restuarant and bar.
rooms in the winter are extremely warm, there is no regulation. if you open the window within a few minutes you are at minus temperatures!! this made sleeping a little uncomfortable.
its seems that generally everywhere is geared towards cash only. i only tried paying in one restuarnt with a card and it took over half an hour to complete. i was told thats just the russian way!! so you have been warned ;-)More
