We needed a pleasant hotel in central Samara - close to the Opera House - for a short stay. Front desk staff were excellent. The room was comfortable and very clean, and all facilities worked. The big disappointment was that, as non-Russian speakers, we were relying on the hotel's promise of light meals being available. The menus were on show - but very limited food was available (i.e. chicken nuggets). So (as vegetarians - with nothing suitable offered though there was plenty on the menu that was not available!) we made a spectacle of ourselves and managed to scrape by with a minimal meal in a local restaurant.
There had never been great hopes of the breakfast included in the rates, but it was edible and it was breakfast. Luckily a Russian speaking friend joined us for our second day so we didn't lose too much weight!
Arrived after a very long flight. Staff were very helpful and directed me to my room which was exceptionally comfortable.
Throughout my stay the staff were very helpful when it came to asking for assistance or getting me a Taxi.
I would definitely stay again.
Oh and there are a lot of facilities in the hotel which I didn't get to try, if you plan to make use of them consider the hotel even better value =>
Superb location if you need to be in Samara downtown. Good hotel with nice amenities. Room was clean and nice. There is good pool with sauna and fitness equipment. The hotel is better than some of other upscale hotels in the city.
