First of all, coming from either the bus or train stations, which are next to each other, this is the perfect place to drop your luggage. It is barely two-hundred metres to the hotel. This means a longer walk into town to go out for lunch, dinner etc, but for me that is perfect, I only stayed one night, but my impressions of all the staff I met were positive. They spoke good English, if that is what you need. The room was fine; clean, tv, wifi etc and big enough for a solo traveller in my case, but don't expect well lit corridors or amazing views. There is something a little Soviet about the hotel, which I liked - reasonably basic, not a lot of charm, but a decent price. There is a café next door where they serve breakfast and which is open most of the day, but I didn't try that. I was quite happy and if I stayed in Brest again, I'd be happy to stay as I would know what I was getting.
Apparently this place classes itself as a speciality lodging house but there was nothing special about it at all. Bedroom were arranged on two dimply-lit floors, and the single rooms consist of long, narrow high-ceilinged boxes which seem like monastic cells. My window led straight out onto the street so I had my curtains drawn whenever I was in the room. The bathroom was poorly arranged so it required a contortionist to get into the shower. The only public room in the entire place was the white-tiled, fluorescent-lit, windowless restaurant which doubled as the bar and lounge. There was no choice at breakfast, which was simply dumped in front of us, without any clue as to what we might expect in each dish. On the positive side the receptionist was friendly and spoke good English.
Though our room was slightly dated, it was very clean. Breakfast in the adjoining restaurant was very good, as was the dinner we had one night. The price/quality rating of this hotel is excellent. Although not all the staff speak English (and we only speak very basic Russian), we were always helped with our questions and requests. We used their laundry service, which I would definitely recommend. Very fast and cheap! I would definitely recommend this hotel to people staying in Brest for a couple of days.
