I stayed from Dec.25 through Dec.29/2011, using Superior class rooms. I have used this hotel number of times since 2006. Over the years, it has upgraded the section of rooms and floors and renovated portion of the lounge area. While it still bears a Soviet era flavor at ground level, but upgraded rooms (after 2010) are pretty decent.
As others reviewed here, I agree It has a consistent quality with an excellent buffet breakfast. Yes, it is a carry-over from a Soviet-era building (70's?), similar to President Hotel next door, but with a better value. Consider these as a business-class hotel - nothing fancy, but functional. The location is 5 minutes walk from Sports Palace Metro station and a few blocks away from the busy street. It is convenient you can avoid City Center traffic jam with a quiet sleep (unless of course, you have a lousy neighbor) is practically guaranteed.
In former Soviet Union /CIS countries, some of the accommodations and places are grossly overpriced, while a good quality service, if you look closer enough, still exists. I like Ukraine services better than Russia, with people - including receptions, etc - are generally friendlier in my opinion. The foods in Ukraine are excellent, as it is a major agricultural country.
