Mixed feelings about this place.
Fabulous location - and anyone who moans about the access to the hotel (entrance, stairs etc) really needs to get out a bit more.
Rooms clean & pleasant. TV reception dreadful & some of the furniture was delicate to say the least. Gentls hints to the hotel staff on brokered no response. Hot water always available.
Interior lobby clean & bright but cramped. If the occupants of two rooms decided to take their breakfast together - it was full. Water & tea/coffee always available. Tourist brocures maps always laid out which was helpful.
Reception Staff were more than pleasant & kind - however for a place that advertises itself as having English speaking staff, the ability of some staff was poor to say the least. My Russian was better than one or two. Still - we were always greeted cheerfully & registration was swift & efficient.
Breakfast was satisfactory however running out of staples like butter, milk before 9 as happened on one occasion is poor - especially given the size of the place.
For what was provided - I would say this place was on the expensive side - then again, the closeness to the centre is the selling point. If you're just looking for a bed - then this place is fine; if you want more then look elsewhere.
