This would have to be the pits
I arrived at like 9am after an amusing but relativly sleepless overnight 2nd class rail sleeper trip from Moscow, (another story) to be told by an unsmiling woman that I could not register till midday so go away and come back then.
I was not paticually amused since I was in a little pain with my leg which had been a *** on this trip so far, but that was certainly not their fault.
On another occaision, I asked at the desk could they change some notes so as I could use the Internet facility (you needed coins). WE DONT HAVE CHANGE HERE I was told go to a cafe or shop. Considdering my russian language skills were zilch, I was not paticually amused.
The building was apparently built late 19th centuary. but the plumbing there was from the 18th centuary. I had read that when you wanted a shower, turn on the hot tap 10 mins before you want hot water. Those comments were not wrong. There was no shower curtain so the entire bathroom got saturated when you showered.
The beds there were out of the arc. Mine were wire wove frames, with wood ontop of the wire wove, and then relics from the origional innerspring matress sale on top of that. The pillows were KAPOC and lumpy.
The dining room seems to be the only part of the hotel renovated and was quite nice, but the breakfast could have been better, however i suppose it was sufficent. (the coffee was the pitts)
