Both I and my family travelling companion selected this hotel of a series provided by a local travel agencies that arranges visas by way of letter of invitation. We were left with very little choice here. The hotel has a few merit worthy points: it is central and within a few minutes walk to Abay Metro station bearing in mind the limited scope of the metro. The rooms are a decent size and the bathroom contains most of the amenities one would expect. The shower had a frequent tendency to leak from the head causing the floor to become inundated. The cleaner performed a perfunctory servicing of the room, not replenishing the toilet roll for many days.
When I checked in at 5am the receptionist was in a slumber and had to be awaken in order for me to check in.
The breakfast is one of the most miserly I'd experienced. When coming in the dining room to have breakfast the staff were distracted, texting away; upon seeing us they seemed displeased that they would have to do something. We bad to sign a docket to have breakfast which seemed like an oddly bureaucratic procedure. Breakfast consisted of some fried eggs, sliced omelette, anaemic sausage bathing in hot water, something in a deep metal container which looked like dried out mashed potato that turned out to be porridge, which when accompanied with the conserves to one side was actually the most appealing on offer. Breakfast was in short, very limited.
The staff at the hotel, particularly at the reception seemed very disinterested. When passing in or out of the hotel their interest seemed to be to take stock of who was coming or going rather than greeting is I'm any way of showing an effigy of a smile.
When asking if we could call Eco Taxis to prebook our taxi, the receptionist refused insisting we use their taxi company which is almost 50% higher in price.
