Generally this seems like a nice hotel. However we had an issue upon check-in as we booked 3 persons instead of 4 and therefore had to pay for an extra room for one night then checkout to another hotel the next day. I feel the solution provided was not ideal. In fact we didn't use the extra room whatsoever but still had to pay for it. Surely there could have been another flexible solution to the problem? However, I do appreciate the polite and professional attitude of the staff, so thank you for that. Secondly, on the location, I did not feel safe every time I entered and exited the Stalingrad Metro station nearby. There are a LOT of troublemakers hanging around and trying to get your attention. I did not feel safe in this area, in general. So please take care when you are travelling to/from the hotel.

Very nice hotel, helpful and friendly stuff. It is located in a very beautiful place on the canal not far from the subway. The hotel is very beautifully illuminated in the evening. You can easily get to the centre of the city on one subway line without transfer. Only one minus there was a little bit cold for us at the hotel. They did not switch on the central heating. But breakfast was very rich and wonderful as for French hotel.
