Great value hotel!
Very nice hotel, great value for money! Breakfast is good and varied and the rooms are large and comfortable! Hotel is a little out of town, but it's easy and cheap enough to get to both the airport and the town centre using either public transport or taxi.

A nice hotel in a great location
A comfortable hotel right in the centre of town, close to all the attractions. We enjoyed their restaurant for dinner. The breakfast was OK for us. We would stay there again if we were in Suzdal.

Expensive Hotel for 4 stars hotel
For a 4 stars hotel it is unacceptable to have a soap feeder without liquid on it. The breakfast area was louzy without proper coffee.Staff on this dept have no a supervisor/manager to coordinate actions. Only exception the front desk staff which was supportive and polite.
Tony, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Breakfast needs looking at.
The hotel was great and the staff helpful. There wasnt much within walking distance except a cafe and a big shopping centre. The restaurant food was excellent. The breakfast was indifferent. Orange juice, champage.hash browns and bacon all at the same temperature! A good choice of things but could have been better.
