I have stayed at this Hotel a number of times over the past two years using mainly the superior class rooms.The Rus is an old Soviet style building that has been updated and renovated over the years since the fall of the iron curtain.The rooms are a little dated but functional, Bathrooms tend to be on the small size with showers in the bath, but generally kept clean.The duvets on the beds are rediculously small and you will need to ask for more towels and pillows if you go as a couple.Also with the tea and coffee making facilities you only get one cup and meagre rations,take a supply of drinks with you.No milk is supplied but can be ordered through room service for a small charge.
The lobby bar is good for coffee and tea and light snacks, drinks and bar meals are from the first floor bar, food generally ok though can get smokey at busy times and the service is a bit casual!Use the main restaurant for the good buffet breakfast, take your key card with you as you have to be swiped in,loads of choice for everyone.Evenings meals are either a la carte, reasonable prices,Ukranian borsh soup is good, or a set price buffet meal - check what is on offer before you commit.
The Hotel is right next to the refurbished football stadium and it is an easy 10 min. walk into the centre of the city for sightseeing, shopping and more restaurant options.If shopping take note that the idea of queing at the Till does'nt come into play, be quick and get in there.
Levels of service are good and the staff are generally friendly, though conversational english is limited.Many of the younger members of staff do speak a reasonable amount of english.
A good, fairly cheap city centre option for business and pleasure.
