Roomy hotel, with still a bit of an aura of the Soviet times. Comfortable room with large bed. Quiet ambience helps good sleep, although curtains cannot be easily fully closed to provide total blackout.
Room was clean, but with empty minbar. Shower was either 'hot' or 'very hot'. Wifi fast, but should be free. Room service swift. Both in the Flight Bar and Link bar, service was at times glacial. Three staff behind bar seemed more interested in i-phones than keeping a lookout for customers.
In a throw back to times gone by, one lunchtime the 'soup of the day' was borscht. Until it arrived and was red bean soup. One evening, after two vodka drinks, I was told they had "run out". What?
The restaurant was empty in the evenings during my stay, so rather than dine in a mausoleum, we opted for the limited choice in the Flight bar. Starters and main were served at the same time and were very uninspiring. If, like us, you are not keen on halal meat, the choice is tiny. At least one can construct sandwiches to taste, using a request card.
