Still Excellent value, but slipping a bit
Posted May 14, 2016
I have stayed at the Allegro a few times now and I can recommend this place for it's excellent location and general value for money. However, on this occasion it stated to get full and busy towards the end of the week due to people arriving for the "Russian Easter holiday", and this caused problems in the breakfast room on a morning (which is now open 7am -10am). Everybody seems to go in there between 9am and 10am, so there's no where to sit. On my last day I tried to go in earlier to avoid the crowds, but it was just as bad. So I decided to stand by the worktop to prepare my breakfast of corn flakes cereal, then I found out there was no milk left. So when I asked the waitress if she could bring some more "Moloko", she said there was no more left.!! - For goodness sake Allegro, Get your act together, There is a big supermarket next door, So there is no excuse for running out of such a basic item.
I do appreciate this was not normal circumstances with the hotel full to capacity, but maybe something should be done the next time this situation arises, for example breakfast room sitting times for guests if need be.
Other than that, I had a pleasant stay in the hotel in a nice quiet room at the back of the hotel overlooking a courtyard. This room still had carpet, which I prefer over the new laminated floors which some of the rooms have.
I would have liked my bathroom towels changed a bit more often, Then again, maybe they only change them if you leave them on the floor.
