This is a good hotel if you want something different from the big, anonymous national chains that all offer much the same thing. It's quite small, very clean, with staff who speak good English and try hard to please. The room we had was large, light and well-equipped, with fresh fruit provided The bathroom was perfectly adequately and everything in it worked well. But there are tell-tale signs of a Soviet past, for example in the over-manning in the reception area and the restaurant, in the rather drab interiors, and in the ladies who watch who enters and leaves the bedrooms. But the staff all make you feel genuinely welcome. The buffet breakfast is ample. The location is OK, but it's not in the city centre and it's away from the main sights. It is, however, very near the funicular that takes you up to the central area. It's cheap and frequent but it stops running at 10 p.m. in the winter, so you have to get a taxi from the centre. There is also a nearby metro station if you feel brave enough to take your chances on it - a hair-raising experience but very satisfying if you finish up where you want to be. The hotel is close to a McDonalds (ugh!) and to a very good Italian-style restaurant.
