As others have said, this hotel isn't perfect and modern, but it was one of my most enjoyable stays of the trip because of how Russian this place was.
The staff were lovely, checked us in and registered our visas fast with no problems. Breakfast was simple but it was fresh and nicer than the buffet rubbish I'd had at more expensive hotels.
Our room was the same suite as the one pictured a few reviews down, I enjoyed having all that room to spread out. Kitschy and probably too old looking for some, but comfortable and very clean. There wasn't much heating, but I prefered it to the overheated rooms we had experienced elsewhere. The temperature was comfortable, not boiling. I had no problems getting a comfortable sleep each night. The only hotel in our whole trip in Russia that actually had a kettle to make tea, which is a plus.
The location of this hotel is fantastic, 5 minutes from the station, overlooking a gorgeous park, and a quick walk to the city centre with all it's shops and cafe's.
