A former KGB Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2006

The rroom I had was VERY well "appointed" a china cabinet with dishes, a "minibar" refrigerator, a comforatble American style queen sized bed a TV, a davan, several extra pillows, blankets . The only real "draw back" was, (as is often the case in European hotels), the lift was TINY I had two suitcases. a camera bag and a backpack. There was bearly room of all this on the car with just myself, so I ended up having to "porter" my own bags to my room. This was supposdly built as a KGB hotel, FAR removed from "downtown" (it only has 66 rooms). BUT right next to the local university campus (just a block away) Plus there is a large confrence center right next door and a business center on the other side toward the street. If you have "business" at the University, this would be ideal! Getting downtown involved selecting the right bus number, walking to the bus stop and riding for 20+ minutes. (MAKE SURE you have a map WITH the bus routes with numbers on it. The inbound routes do not always follow the outbound routes so looking for landmarks can be a real problem!!)
The restaurant was nice, breakfast was a mix of eggs cooked to order and a buffet of yogurt, ceral, sliced cheeses and meats, rolls, muffins et al.

Unique Quality: Notice the apparent "extra spoace" between some rooms", did the KGB use the large mirrors to spy on it own too?
