“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I stayed at Grand Hotel Vidgof for two nights. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with excellent wifi connections. The fitness centre was a real bonus. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast buffet was delicious. I would return to this hotel on my next visit to Chelyabinsk.

At first sight the hotel looks absolutely GRAND! The room had everything you might need when travelling on business, including a bathrobe, slippers, all kinds of toiletries, and a desk to work with documents. Strange enough that there was no teakettle which is expected to be a must amenity even for a 4* hotel and which would be perfect to use in case you'd like to have a cup of hot tea in the evening as the weather was really nasty. Another inconvenience was that it was rather hot at night and it wasn't possible to turn down the heating. It wasn't possible to open the window either as the air outside was far from being fresh, it smells chemicals. The breakfast was poor if compared to european 3* hotels.

Probably the best in town.
Helpful and friendly staff
Very big and comfortable rooms
The SPA is very nice, with a real swimming pool (almost 25m) and very nice Sauna and Steam room. Price for massage affordable and very professional.
The restaurant has very nice, healthy and well cook choice of dishes
The breakfast is somewhat disappointing.

The common areas must have cost a fortune and are very Russian bling
Room is comfortable, yet noise from room next door was loud, you could follow the phone converstaion in next room
Bathroom ok, but too many amenities on very small surface, so everything got wet
Breakfast was bad : nothing was where you'd expect it
Porridge was in shallow dish, bread was stale, no bacon, eggs, omelet or anything you'd expect at breakfast
For a 5 star, it proved impossible to get a pot of tea, you had to walk to buffet each time
They did bring me fresh orange juice though, appreciated
The music was wrong choice and much too loud, i couldn't stay because of it
I do wonder, why do all the staff thing such loud rock and roll for breakfast is OK

Room Tip: The higher you get, the better the view Avoid the courage restaurant

I was staying at this hotel for business. Very clean, nice rooms.
They do have restaurants and bars (including a karaoke bar) at the hotel but I opted for room service as I was tired from traveling. Great selection and fast service.
The front desk staff was knowledgeable and helpful.

I was staying at the hotel dufing my business trip. I was amazed by difference between spectacular ineriors and dramatically low level of understanding of the staff/management how to treat adequately the guests of the hotel.

The service in their restaurant shocked me - they invoiced me extra 15% (of tax???) plus 10% for service (!!!). The menue actually contained statement about 15% extra but it was in the bottom in small size letters . What is the reason for that? Finally the bill that I got didn't reflect the actual price. Is it 5 stars?

The WiFi in my room was not working.
