The hotel location is good, rooms are clean and staff speaks english. However don't book it through the affiliate site www.boutiquehotelsandresorts.com since they redirect you to expedia and push the price up.
The room are comfortable and large, but with half windows (at least in our room) therefore the room is very dark, and you have fast no view to the street/city. However, the room is very quiet.
When asking the staff to arrange for a taxi transfer to the airport, they asked us 2000 RUB for it, and proposed us the hotel bentley for 1800 RUB. When you know that the same taxi fair costs btw. 400 to 1200 RUB depending on your russian language proficiency, and that the bus ride is as cheap as 20 RUB...
In a nutshell, we spent a nice weekend in this hotel, but it's somewhat pricey for what you get, and don't expect the staff to arrange your airport transfer unless you are willing to pay 3x the average price.
