“Mixed feelings about this hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

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.

The hotel is located by the river Dvina, just a block away from the main square and main street. It is clean and warm, and the breakfast is excellent. Everything works and the free WiFi is working in all parts of the hotel. There is nothing fancy about the hotel, but everything is really OK there. That is all you can expect.

Room Tip: Ask a room facing the river; the other rooms face the backyard, and there is really not much to look...

The hotel was given to me by colleagues as "the only one suitable in Arkhangelsk", which I think is not the point, and I plan to check another one next visit.
The hotel is well built, clean, comfortable. The rooms are large and fine.
Breakfast is served in a relatively small hall - there can be problems with free tables.
Main problem is the price - ~100euro per night is too much...

The furnishings are pretty basic but the rooms are big and have all you need for a short stay. Good service levels, WiFi works well and the dinner I had in the Sky Bar was very good. The location is good, both in the city and overlooking the river. I would use it again.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view - I didn't!

The Pur-Navolok has a range of different rooms; we stayed in a "double." The location was near the center of town, but along the river off the main street. The room was clean and decently appointed, with two beds, table and chairs, wardrobe, refrigerator, and hairdryer. Not fancy (and in fact a bit down-scale), but new and well-kept-up. The bathroom was a little cramped, but completely servicable.

The front desk staff were extremely helpful and (luckily for us) speak excellent English: we asked them questions about a number of things, and always got good answers. Rooms have wireless if you want it, and there's a business center we used with internet-connected computers and a printer connection. They have a room with ironing boards, and a number of other amenities on site.

The only real downside was I thought the room was a bit noisy--the hotel construction seems thin, so it's easy to hear people walking above you. We paid about $125 per night, which isn't a terrible price but neither is it a great value. Still, we were completely satisfied with the Pur-Navolok.
