Not a hotel, security concerns

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: price and location
Cons: many things as stated above
Location: central location, close to theaters and good restaurants
Excellent location ,reasonable price, spacious room, friendly staff(when you can find them) and reasonably clean but...there are problems. It is definitely not a hotel, at most partially refurbished apartment. Hard to imagine a hotel which does not provide room telephones and continuous access to the front desk ,definitely a problem in case of emergencies. In some rooms there are no commodes or shelves for storing clothes. The security box operates by a key not a code ,the room can not be bolted from inside and the room key does not always work.The access is through a dark, dilapidated courtyard and stairway or one person antique lift. All of this raises security concerns . Bathroom tissues are scarce ,no coffeemaker or kleenex tissues provided, TV access can be problematic .Instead of dishwashing liquid, soapy water is provided. The room service is sporadic ,at their convenience ,not that of a quest .

Had a great time staying at the hotel - a spacious, very clean room with a small open plan kitchen, extremely close to the city centre. The staff was friendly and very helpful throughout the whole time. Would recommend to anybody.

Historical part of the city

Posted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Location in the historic area
Cons: Shoul not save money on the toilets, doors, towels, etc
Location: Nice charming surrounding
What can decorators make from the Soviet style building - come and see. Does not worth money spent. 3+ stars rate. Personal was nice anyway.

From the outside, the was nothing special. But once we got into the rooms we were amazed at how beautiful the room was. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable with different types of pillows. I will definitely go back to this hotel. Tatyana the administrator was very, very friendly.

Very nicely appointed, and large, apartment hotel.

Posted Apr 24, 2013
Pros: Location, size and comfort of the room.
Location: Location is just 1 1/2 blocks away from the main street in the City Centre. Plenty of places to eat, drink, and shop, within 5 minutes of walking.
There is a small sign visible from the road, with the name of the business, that is above the entrance to the inner courtyard of the building that it is in. Once you get in the courtyard, though, there are no directions about where to go. Finally called the number, and one of the staff met me outside, and took me up to the floor where my room was. The checking in process started a little "rough", but ended very well. I should have known better, since Am Ex isn't accepted a lot of places even in Western Europe, but since AmEx was an available payment on Expedia, I thought I would be fine.... Well, not so. Am Ex wasn't accepted, and besides my VISA debit card (with not enough cash in my account to cover a full 8 days), and cash I brought for the week/tours/etc, that's all I had. Ended up having to pay over a couple of days, from my bank account, after having a family member deposit more through Paypal. They were very helpful/friendly about it. The room was beautiful. Great windows, that could open either as a window, or in a door "open/closed" fashion. Balcony was nice too. Nice small fridge, stove, drinking glasses, wine glasses, coffee cups, cooking items, etc. Washing machine (ask for detergent and they will put some in for you), but no dryer, so I just laid my stuff out in the bathroom to dry. Marble floors, comfortable bed, nice couch. Barely watched the TV, but it was nice. Place was cleaned daily. Would definitely stay again.
