I stayed twice during a week totaling 3 nights.
Both times check in was reasonably efficient. They copy all pages of foreign passports that have anything on them, which is actually no longer required in Russia, but the farther one gets from Moscow the more old habits die hard. At least when they realized I wouldn't let my passport out of my sight they did it quickly.
Rooms are just right. Everything works, desk has 2 power ports, there are power ports next to the bed, lighting is ample, bathrooms are large enough. Two small complaints with the rooms. The first room I had, the bed was lumpy like a 50 year old mattress. The second room was better, but still not great. Must have bought cheap mattresses... obviously that money went to the desk chairs in the rooms... those were great! Second small complaint - the toilets don't flush all the "stuff" down. Must be the new water saving ones, so you have to flush 4 or 5 times and it still doesn't work! Water pressure not high on 9th and 10th floor, so don't ask for 15th floor!
Gym is nice with new technogym equipment. 4 treadmills, 2 ellipticals and a bike, plus a limited quantity of weights and dumbbells. The TV's have not yet been connected on most of the equipment, and this new technogym stuff has no place to rest your ipad so you can watch something while you work out!
Gym is open 24 hours - one of my requirements.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the hotel location is not convenient to walk to alternative restaurants.
Breakfast was very complete and starts at 5am, which is good for early risers. One does have to chase down a staff member to order eggs or coffee, however. It would be better if they came to the customer.
Dinner in the restaurant / bar is from a limited menu but all the food was good. Bar service was very bad. Perhaps the barman was blind (I'm all in favor of jobs for the blind) but many efforts to wave him down didn't work so one must get up from one's table and go to him to order something.
The architecture of this hotel is straight from 1960's "Intourist" styling from the outside, but fortunately the stuff inside is pretty good and modern. Wifi everywhere and reasonably fast. Many staff speak english quite well.
I'm sure it's a huge challenge in a place like Krasnoyarsk to get rid of Soviet attitudes and actually have smiling, friendly, English speaking staff. This hotel does quite a good job.
