Although previous reviews made me doubt, I booked four nights at Mir and the hotel was about what I expected. Finding it and getting there later couldn't have been easier as there's a Metro station right by the hotel - a two-minute walk and 10 minutes to town. The area around the hotel is mainly residential, with a large road and some kiosks and a 24-hour open shop across the street from the hotel.
The staff spoke a bit of English, and did their job. Checking in took astonishingly long, about five minutes, with no other customers for the attendant to deal with. After making it through this, I enjoyed a 15-floors elevator ride in an old Soviet elevator - these are wonderfully nostalgic, but painstakingly slow. The keykeepers on each floor mentioned here are by the way gone, replaced by magnetic cards.
The room was a single and on the smaller side, but not uncomfortable in any way. A plus was the good storage space, the refridgerator and the fantastic air-conditioning as well as a free water dispenser on each floor with free coffee in the room. The matress could have been better, though.
If you haven't ordered breakfast, it's rather expensive (120UHA). The choices and quality are OK, but don't really defend the price. The restaurant itself has an incredible early-90s cheap cruiseship look to it, that's almost worth checking out for itself - must be quite unique for breakfast.
In total the hotel did what it's supposed to, and I wouldn't object to stay there again.
