We stayed at this hotel with a KGB voucher. The proprietor was a very friendly and helpful person but I definitely wouldn't pay full price to stay. The hotel is in need of serious redecoration to start with. Our room was very tiny but perfectly clean. The room did, however, need redecorating as the wallpaper was coming off the walls and there was a very dirty line around the room where I assume a border had previously been.
The bathroom was very small but adequate. It did not have any heating in or an extractor fan which made the room very cold and all fitments had become rusty. There was liquid soap and shower gel for guests to use which was a very nice touch. I would recommend that the hotel provide larger towels in the bathroom as I don't find a small bath towel adequate, especially when the room is so cold and you want to wrap yourself up when you come out of the shower.
I wouldn't recommend eating in the restaurant. When we checked in we were asked to chose our meal straight away as the hotel was very busy and this would help the kitchen staff. We did this but, when we went down for dinner, there was only one other table with diners on. The room where we ate our meals was quite grotty. There was even a vacuum and cleaning equipment in the room. The food was extremely basic (I wouldn't want to pay the prices which were advertised on the blackboard). I had to return mine as it was cold too. We did not enjoy the food at all. We didn't sample the breakfasts so I cannot comment on the quality.
I was extremely pleased that the centre of town was only a 5 minute walk away so we could enjoy an evening out and did not have to stay in the hotel.
