The mansard room was overlooking the street so it was somewhat noisy in the morning. Mansard windows meant that the room was also a bit dark. Sqeaky bed was a minus too. Pros: efficient service, tasty breakfast and good location not too far from the center. Good restaurants nearby.

With respect to my a priori knowledge of russian hotels this hotel is excellent quality. The room was very nice, and breakfast was rather good. The personnel speaks very good english, and they are helpful. The only questionmark was the cleaning, as we fould that our room was probably cleaned in a hurry during the last day we stayed.
