Member of the staff Ksenija was super helpful and nice!
Room too small for two people to share.
Maid and some receptionist were kind. City center.
Some receptionist were not kind or aggressive. People making noise late in the night. Welcoming pretty bad. Pretty expensive for that kind of hotel.
Location is great, stuff also was amazing
The hostel was 2 mins away from the subway and there's a mall opposite of the mall as well. There are money exchange, coffee shops, restaurants and subway food chain 24/7 nearby. The place itself was clean and not bad for the price.
The WC is common for both men and women also the shower. If this is common to them, it may not be for their visitors/guests so they should be sensitive to this. The receptionists do not speak English and are quick to get mad and be rude if they don't understand. I was opening my translation app and I could see her eyebrows getting together, I was only asking if they can skip cleaning our room as our stuff was all over. On our last night we asked for a taxi for the next evening going to airport and we were told it will come pick us up at 7pm. 12pm, upon check out we asked if the taxi pick up is confirmed and the girl showed me a sticky note saying it's written here so its confirmed. So we went out, came back 6 pm and noticed a different girl is in reception so we asked if the pick up is confirmed and reconfirmed if they accept card, the reception said if it was confirmed the previous night then why are we still asking?! - she was yelling and very rude.. 7:05pm same receptionist who was yelling came to my friend and said that the taxi was not booked, she said the previous receptionist only enquired the fare but did not confirm the pick up. Please if you will accept English speaking guests, you need to hire at least one person per shift who speaks English otherwise do not accept English speaking guests because it will just cause inconvenience to both parties.
BEWARE is a word for foreign guests. The place tries to charge extra fee from non-Russians for making a mandatory police notification of stay (which is called "temporary registration" sometimes). By Russian law, to make that notification is a hotel's own responsibility, and it shouldn't be paid as a special service, as service means the ability to decline it and here you can't. The trick is, they don't include the price of their work at a basic fare and then, after you agreed to let's say 1500 RUB deal for the room, they inform you it'll be 250 RUB more for that service of notification. It's pure bullshit as if they invest so much time and efforts to make it - fine, no problem, but then the basic fare should be appropriate and no additional payments should follow. Here, their style of work is similar to ask you just some let's say 50 RUB for basic fare but then 100 EUB extra if you'll use the bed and 150 RUB extra if you make shitting and their junitor will have to clean the bin of your toilet paper and then 200 RUB extra if that'll be raining and your feet will be dirtier than in hot summer. In short words, it's a plain cheat and it's against the law, which was proven in our case: just having a prospective to have police called to study the ask for "necessary additional payment", the hotel receptionist immediately backed and made all the notifications for free, as it should be. Very unpleasant impressions from that style of cheating, and the clear decision to never use the whole net wherever. Hello guys, that's the result of your clever policy of how to raise a buck.
