Yes you feel that you're in Russia, but in a positive sense! If the hotel was built during the Soviet era, then it has been fully renovated. Don't expect anything fancy or extraordinary, but everything seems to work and there's all you need; clean room, mini bar, hair dryer, shoe polish, tooth brush & shampoos, flat TV , fluffy towels and bath robe with flippers. What more do you need! The front desk personnel was very helpful and they did everything to fulfill my needs, which they always did with a smile. Ythe best about the hotel is without doubt the exellent restaurant. The breakfast wasn't anything overwhelming but good enough, but the lunch and ala'carte is among the best Russia Irkutsk has to offer. The reataurant is modernly decorated, but they have cabinets that are more Russian style. The music they play in the restaurant should however be changed! The hotel is perfect for meetings and conferances and they offer different sized rooms for that. To downside of the hotel is that it's a bit far from the center. Then again Irkutsk is such a big city that you can't discover it all by foot, so you have to use a taxi at some point anyway. Irkutst also has an inexpensive bus and tram system. The hotel is convinietly situated near the airport, which again isn't that far away from town.
