A Dobraya Stolovaya is connected to the hotel internally. It serves good food at considerably reasonable price. Receptionists were all friendly and quite helpful. The price was cheap, 2400RBL including tax per night.
Many foreign guests were staying, but the room where we stayed did not have a hotel guide book in English. TV was a CRT type and no channel in English was available. The room was 203-2 on the fiirst floor, an economy twin room with shared bathroom. We saw the other corridor. That looked just nicely renovated. What a differrence!
Rooms are spacious, I had some good nights of sleep without to much noise around. It is warm inside during winter and I had two TV's in both living space and bedroom. Overall, it is not bad hotel and it will be just enough for a week or two visiting Kazan. Location is not perfect but taxi is cheap and affordable. You can also buy some interesting souvenirs in a hotel lobby.
Hotel is basically a big building full off flats with mostly outdated and old fashioned furniture. I can't call this bad but it leaves not so pleasant feeling, especially carpeting that desperately need changing, both in hallways and inside rooms. This also goes for linens and towels, although they are clean it was long time due replacing them for new ones. Electronic card locker on entrance door is frequently malfunctioning so you will find yourself visiting receptionists quite often for magnet card renewals. English speaking receptionists are rare so better catch some common Russian phrases. Food in ground floor restaurant is nothing to write home about, mostly sweet with surprising mix of ingredients that I did not enjoyed much.
Old Soviet style hotel with rusty refrigerators, carpet with the holes in the main hall and wooden window frames that was repainted hundreds of times without removing the old paint. Extremely cheap restaurant with tasty food : you can have tea, soup and main dish just for $3 Total... Wooow... If you want to feel the spirit of old USSR - just check in and enjoy!!!
This is an actual hotel so you get your own room. Shared bathroom with another room.
Our room did not had ac so it was hard to sleep since it was really hot. We tried to move to an ac unit room, called business rooms but there was no availability.
Includes one meal, people is very nice
Some rooms you have to share bathroom, they have a very old carpet and it’s smell is not good.
