0.49km from Kazan State UniversityStayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. It's very functional, so fine for a business trip but lacks character that a leisure traveller may want. Check in was swift and polite. The rooms were big enough and very clean, lots of wardrobe and shelf space. No kettle, I presume these are kept in reception. Breakfast had a good selection for everyone including vegetarians like me. Cereals, pastries, salad, scrambled egg, toast and also freshly made omelette - I didn't have one but my colleague did each morning and it looked delicious. Evening dinner in the restaurant wasn't quite so good. The English spoken by the staff wasn't great considering this was a business hotel - there were a lot of misunderstandings which we laughed at, but could have worn thin and we actively avoided the restaurant on the final evening. One evening, there was a valentines dinner so we were escorted to the bar downstairs to eat. I had my dinner within 20 minutes of sitting down but my colleagues were kept waiting for an hour or so, although when we passed back through the valentines dinner, there was no-one in the restaurant, so I'm not sure why the food took so long. The food was nice though - the pizza is huge though so either be very hungry or share with others!! On the final night there was a wedding, which was quite loud, but as we were checking out for a very early flight, it didn't matter. I noticed there was a spa on the premises with some great value treatments - it would have been great to have a poster in English for this as each morning when I got in the lift and saw the sign, I just didn't have time to translate and then work out how to book. Overall, this is a nice hotel with all the essentials in place - clean, friendly, close to amenities and perfect for the business traveller.
