This hotel not only met but by far exceeded my expectations. It is definitely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. First - the location is amazing, right in the centre of Yekaterinburg, on the bus from the airport to the railway station, in the walking distance to all the major sights and other important places in the centre. There are also restaurants and shops around (and a small shop in the hotel itself). Second - the rooms are beautiful, very clean and cosy. I had a room on the 6th floor with the view of the skyscraper Vysocky. The room was very modern and had a fridge and a coffee/tea making facilities as well as various bathroom necessities (tooth paste, bathrobe). It is quite unusual, at least in Europe, to find all that in a 3star hotel. Third - the staff at the reception were really nice and helpful. They were always ready to help (arrange the taxi etc.). Fourth - the breakfast was very good and there was a variation from one day to another (though I regretted the variation meant there were no "syrniky" on some days, as I liked them a lot). All in all, I have to say, I was really impressed by this hotel and would definitely choose it again for the next stay in Yekaterinburg (which, by the way, is a very nice city).
My only regret is that I had to leave.
Very central location in Yekaterinburg, right on main thoroughfare, Lenina Prospeckt, ease of travel in every direction. Tram and trolley bus stations nearby. Good restaurants and coffee shops very close. Museums and historic Cathedrals in easy walking distance. Air conditioning and air filtering was excellent.
Ventilation in bathroom, mirror steamed easily, could be rectified with a small exhaust fan. Tap water quality, recommend visitors drink from bottles supplied.
Breakfast was very good, almost the best on the trip, with a good choice and excellent coffee. The room was well-appointed and clean. Good central location, easy to reach from the station.
The only thing I did not like was the water in the room. I do expect hot water in a hotel bathroom even in a hotel that is muck less upmarket than this one. I asked at reception and was told I should run the hot tap for ten minutes. I ran it for 20 and it became close to lukewarm. (This was an appalling waste of water.) For this reason alone I have rated the facilities very low and would not stay there again. This was the case both on the evening I arrived and the following morning.
A stay at Grand Avenue by Usta Hotels places you in the heart of Yekaterinburg, steps from Sverdlovsk Academic Theatre Of Musical Comedy and 3 minutes by foot from Butterfly Park. Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, express check-in, and express check-out. Planning an event in Yekaterinburg? This hotel has 2454 square feet (228 square meters) of space consisting of a conference center and a meeting room. For a surcharge, guests may use a shuttle from the airport to the hotel (available 24 hours) and a train station pick-up service.
