Cold War style Lenexpo lodgings
Posted Jun 3, 2013
A reminder of the Soviet era, the only really good thing about this hotel is its location close to the Lenexpo conference Centre.
Set amongst menacing looking tower blocks, it has a lock o the front door which you have to ring, which is a concern when people are loitering at night.
The room was ok...the curtains were damaged which is not ideal when White Nights occur and the bathroom was not exactly spotlessly clean. It had a feeling of the 1970s and a smell to match. All very basic.
Despite a vehement no smoking policy, it stinks of old smoke - which I gathered was from staff smoking by a doorway which was left open.
The breakfast looked so uninviting that I did not try it.
