Bed was fantastic. Breakfast was not too bad. But there was no hot water the morning we left. Staff were very helpful. Good location. This is a great spot to have a break from the train and this hotel is in a good location in the city.
Good chain hotel, staff were friendly, rooms clean and service on the whole was good. Breakfast was ok with the usual buffet style help yourself. Well located for walking into town and many shops and restaurants nearby
The hotel is located in a quiet side street and all major attraction can easily be reached after a few minutes walk. The internet worked just fine. Everybody was friendly. Room was big enough with a good efficient bathroom. I liked that the mini bar was empty but could be used as a fridge. One time a towel was missing, but I called room service and everything was solved within minutes. The room was always cleaned very well and was always ready before I came back from my first walk in the city. There is some construction going on in the neighborhood, but it didn't bother me at all. The windows are sound isolated. The road is closed of, so you need to make a small detour to get to the river, but it takes only a few minutes. Breakfast was tasteful and there were enough options to choice from. Omelettes are made when you order them. There is some room for improvement (for example the breakfast in Novotel Bucharest is better) but for Russia it is a very nice breakfast I had a room on the top floor facing the river. Although you can not see the river, I liked the view. The bed was big, but a bit too soft for my liking. But I guess that that is a personal feeling. There are different kinds of pillows to choose from. There was an ironing room available. A small food shop is just 2 minutes from the hotel a big supermarket is 10 minutes walk away. Become a Club Accor member (free), and you get immediately a discount when you book the room directly on their website. If I come back to Yekaterinburg, I'll be staying here again.
I stayed 3 nights there. Reception personal were helpful. Cleaning is not bad. Wifi connection is good. Location is perfect. But I was wondering much more good room. They need some changing in public area. I mean lobby and lobby bar. But better than the other hotels in Yekaterinburg.
I've been loyal member to the chain - so i used to stay for both business and personal purposes in the chain. Frankly speaking i got the feeling staying more in 3* rather than 4*. The reception and restaurant staff is attentive and friendly as well as roomservice. But housekeeping is the issue to work on it. I was really surprised that even my bed wasn't prepared as it should be. There was water missing so i had to address reception for a water. I had only one plastic cup so when i use it once a have no chance to have a cup of tea in the room. Shampoo and showing gel were not updated regularly so i had to use shampoo instead of gel. The cleaning staff at the lobby was not polite marking than i dirty the floor she just had washed. The location is good. The room has all necessary staff - but i would recommend to put glass cups instead of plastic ones. All in all i can recommend the hotel for a short stay.
The beauty of stay in trusted hotel chains is to enjoy similar environment and service in any city or in any country. This hotel is built in accordance to the Novotel style and standards, quite fresh, located in a very center of the city. However it has some disadvantages. The hotel is smelling. Either it's chlorine or other disinfection agents or it's the smell of water coming from the tap (you can perfectly smell the strange odor when taking the shower). Soundproof is miserable- you can hear any talk in the corridor or in neighboring room. That's very disturbing. Breakfast is really poor. What I liked was the staff. All are very young, pretty well trained. Not perfect, but enthusiastic. My stay was very short, but I think you better consider another hotel for longer stay.
The hotel is located within walking distance from al the sites. Room had everything you needed. The breakfast buffet was good as was the dinner in the restaurant. Taxi to or from transtation is around 500 RB. It is a good option for the trans siberian traveller.
We got a good welcome from the efficient receptionists. Room was well furnished with contemporary items. Mattress sagged in middle and pillows were hard which made for less than a perfect night's sleep. Choice at the buffet breakfast was very good for Russia. Dinner was not so exciting - fairly bland and small portions. Would stay again.
You get the standard Novotel room and service which is quite OK in such a distant location. Breakfast could be better selected, rather taste-less and the setting is also boring. The gym is Ok - do not expect a big room, however reasonable.
Everything was fine. Friendly staff. Not far from center of Yekaterinburg. Very tasty breakfasts. Clean and bright room with multimedia system. It was comfortable to work and relax there. Strong wifi signal.
