This hotel is pleasant and nice with beautiful gardens and grounds. The old Soviet consulate was there and there is still a bust of Lenin. Hotel is quiet, air conditioning works well, wifi is decent.
Staff does not speak English well, even at front desk. Breakfast is served in a different building, which might cause problems if it is raining, as you have to walk outside to get to the other building. Also breakfast is completely Chinese, so if you like western breakfasts, beware.
However, I would stay here again were I to pass this way again.
