Having no other Russian hotels to compare this to, I have no idea if this is normal, but compared to London and the US, this place is rough. When we were there they were doing what looked like a cosmetic upgrade to the hotel entrance, but other than that, the place is old and dark. The beds are not comfortable, the sheets didn't fit, the shared bathroom (shared with one other room) was really rough (see pics), if your in a semi-private bathroom set up, the outer door doesn't lock so you have to walk from the toilet room or shower room to your room in an unlocked hallway - unless you know your roommate, then you can request a key to the outside door. It was noisy outside (there's a train yard across the street and they seem to operate late into the evening and early in the morning with the whistles and the loudspeaker). The previous poster is right about keeping the windows shut, but if you're there when the government has turned on the heat, then there is no other alternative if your hot (there is no way to turn the heat up or down or off - if the government turns it on - it is ON!). We were there volunteering and the company must have had a food service agreement on a tight budget because although the soups where quite good, the other food was lacking.
