Spent one noght on a business trip. Said to be the best hotel in Arkhangelsk.
I travel a lot and I am used to this mid--90-ies "new Russians" chic style. Do not expect it to be anywhere near 5 or even 4-star Western Standards.
The building itself is very impressive, overlooking the Dvina River , with a magnificent panoramic elevator inside. My office has booked a Deluх room for me whicn had a bedroom and a sitting room. As usually with Russian upstyle provincial hotels, the designer did not put any thought into what he did - whats the use of having a Deluxe room if it overlooks a sidestreet? No magnificent view to the Dvina river-no way! The dressing room is at the far end of the suite from the bedroom, there are no glasses so you have to drink your drink from the minibar either from a tea cup, or from a glass you take from the bathroom. There is a fruit basket -but no knife!
The bathroom is deisgned to foolishly that you have to be an acrobat in order to manage to get into the bathtub or reach the bathroom shower.
Otherwise clean, comfortable but for the awful pillows, quiet.
Breakfast for the Deluxe rooms is in the Sky Bar, with a magnificent view again.Nothing special about the breakfast, except they get you a nice cup of espresso instead of an awful brewed coffee usual for Russian hotel breakfasts.
Well, good for a one-night business trip stay.
