“Great business hotel, excellent location, free Wifi, decent little gym.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

I spent a week staying at the Novotel in Yekaterinburg and can definitely recommend it to other travelers. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the river, lake, city center, and shopping areas. It is located off the main roads so is generally nice and quiet with no traffic noise.

The hotel is very modern and tidy and is blissfully smoke free. My room was modern, smartly decorated, spotlessly clean, and very well maintained. All the furniture was comfortable, plenty of cupboard space, and I had some very good sleeps. In-room facilities included: minibar, safe, coffee/tea, desk, free Wifi internet, and TV (mainly Russian channels). The only problem I had was with a non-functional AC unit, but hotel staff were very happy to transfer me to another room.

The gym was slightly disappointing, mainly due to lack of variety of equipment, however after I used it a number of times, my opinion of it grew. The fact that they had a gym was the main reason that I chose to stay at the Novotel. There are 3 pieces of high-quality cardio gear (2 treadmills, 1 bike), a high-quality multi-gym, and a set of light weight dumbbells (1kg-10kg). A bit more gear would’ve been nice, however it did the job.

The service was really good. Almost all hotel staff spoke at least a little bit of English and were eager to help out, answer questions, make recommendations, etc. The breakfast buffet was awesome, pretty much everything you could ever want, including fresh fruit/juices, yogurt, cereals, a huge variety of hot dishes, pastries, etc. I ate some a few dinners there as well and was impressed by the tastiness of the food and promptness of the service.

Overall, I had a great experience at the Novotel and would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended to all travelers looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay in Yekaterinburg.

This was unexpectedly plush and well appointed. I suspect it's more of a business hotel but the staff are friendly & helpful, rooms are very comfortable and breakfast very good too. A very pleasant surprise. Yekaterinburg is in easy reach in foot, too.

This hotel is well located, relatively close to the train station, city sites and restaurants. The weekday breakfast buffet is fabulous - the weekend buffet is a bit abbreviated but still good. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Pleasantly western after 48 hours on the train from Irkutsk.

Everything one would expect, lots of business travelers.

Good breakfasts and outstanding porridge.

Well located for exploring the city on foot.

This hotel is very much standard Novotel. Rooms are big and bed is comfortable. The staff at reception is helpful and speaks decent English.
TV has only Russian programmes and all electricity is turned off when you remove your key-card (so you cannot charge your gadgets when you leave the room).
The hotel is bit aside from main roads so it is rather quiet.
