To sum up, before I go into details: good location, good service, awful breakfast with ok coffee, not worth the price.
This is a great hotel! It is conveniently located in the city centre, yet just a bit off the busy and noisy streets. The staff is very friendly and the service is good. Room service obeys the "do not disturb" sign, which is a rare thing (from my experience, even in Europe staff usually has a bad habit of entering the room despite any warnings...). The rooms are kept very clean.
Even though it's good, it is not worth the price you're paying. The furniture feels very cheap, so as the sink and other bathroom equipment. The breakfast is terrible.
Let me put it in a standalone paragraph, so that everyone sees it:
The breakfast is terrible!
Coffee was okay, so were some of the sweets and red peppers, but everything else was either not fresh, or you would never consider trying it. Who on earth has marinated fish for breakfast? Or pasta? Or steamed vegetables and boiled potatoes? Perhaps the people of Tatarstan Republic do, but I very much doubt their guests share that passion...
Tomatoes and cucumbers were dried up. There was no fruit. At all. Not even a single canned peach.
This hotel is exploiting the fact that it is one of the few good hotels in the city, even though it's not worth the price. However, you can find a hotel that's just a little bit further from city centre, with equally bad breakfast, but for about 2/3 of the price.
