Stayed here for 5 days last week on business and must agree it is certainly one of the best places to stay in Ekaterinburg. Quite a new hotel. Rooms are clean, well-decorated, styled in good taste, spacious and a very good window panel to get ample sunlight in. Restaurant and food was good if not extraordinary.
What I liked most was the absolute top-notch professionalism and caring attitude of the stuff throughout my stay. Reached the hotel after a horrible flight delay & long exhausting trip at 5 in the morning and was marveled at how prepared they were to check me in as fast and as smoothly as possible. I have stayed in many higher rated hotels around the world but rarely found this warm welcome. The reception desk didn't even forget to hand me in personalized internet access codes for my macbook and a secondary device when I pointed out I had an iPad as well.
The location is quite good although not really spectacular. There are restaurants, shopping malls, banks and metro stations very close.
An interesting aspect of the hotel was the glass floor on 11th floor. I actually noticed this in one of the earlier reviews here and decided to take a go myself. Walking on the floor with a view all the way down was fun.
On the rare drawbacks, the room service staffs kept on speaking russians in spite of pointing out several times that I don't speak a word of it. But I suppose this is quite common everywhere in Russia.
All in all, I shall definitely stay there if I visit Ekaterinburg again.
