I chose the Prikamie due to a disclaimer on the Hotel Ural website that stated "we apologize for any inconvenience during the renovation of the facade of the building." That's all I needed to read, plus the rates were more than double - I was not going to risk a noisy hotel stay. I am so glad I made the change!
For more than a month before I arrived, the hotel administrator Anastasya helped me plan my stay in Perm, from making sure I had an airport transfer to the hotel to arranging a rental car. She went above and beyond her job responsibilites to make sure my stay at the hotel would be perfect. Excellent, personalised service!
The hotel is situated in the very centre of Perm, directly behind the Hotel Ural on Komsomolsky, within three minutes walking distance to shopping, restaurants and nightlife. It's merely a five minute walk to the Ballet and Opera Theatre. The location cannot be beat.
Rooms are clean and bright, completely renovated and decorated nicely in a Western European style with color sattelite television and refrigerator. The furnishings in the rooms are new and the bathrooms are spotlessly clean and modern. Towels and amenities such as shampoo and soap are replaced daily. The front desk staff is amazingly helpful and kind, and although English is limited they do their best to communicate and make you feel at home.
Rate for a single room in November, 2010, is 2600 RUB, and although I arrived at the hotel at 6AM there was no charge for an early check-in.
Breakfast is included in the rate which consists of six set menu choices, and is offered in the hotel cafe or the hotel restaurant, Locos Gringos. The breakfast choices are made fresh and are enormous, almost too much, although I had no complaints about that! Coffee, blini or kasha, bread with ham or butter, yoghurt drink, orange juice...I was full for the entire day.
All in all I would say the hotel Prikamie is one of the best hotels I've had the pleasure of staying at throughout my many trips to Russia, and there is little doubt I will be staying there again!
