Hotel Atlantida: 5 Star hotel Atlantida Hotel Review
Show Prices

Another confusing stay ...

The list

Hot water ... all the time !!!
Spare roll of toilet paper !!! :-)
Jacuzzi in the room !!!
Airco
some have internet
Swimming pool , sauna
minibar
restaurant

One reception lady is soooo nice ...

Unique Qualities: the result

I stayed in 4 different rooms. In 3 of them , once i filled the bath tub it was impossible to drain the water.
Airco was leaking water during the night.
Internet ... russian manual. (yes, it needs a manual) ... once all is set, the server does not work.
swimming pool is not free ... about 100 euro for half an hour! Say what? (but you have privacy, caus you are always alone with these rates :-) )
restaurant is ex-pen-si-ve.
Every single service has a price. Whatever you can imagine.
no elevator

... the other reception lady is the devil!!!

Hotel is very good though , ... only ... 100 euro a night? 5 Stars???

FYI
I went back one year later. 04/2009
The prices are a little lower, but still too much. And still this is not a 5 star hotel.
I connected to the internet server, but it will not accept the login and password given by the hotel. So again, a waste of time.
The devil woman is still there ... never thought is was possible , but she is even meaner than before. Never a smile...one emotion on her face. Maybe she OD on botox? ;-)
and now ... she had a little devil friend at the reception.
However , in the restaurant they've found somebody who is friendly and speaks excellent English.

Hotel Orel: Hotel Orel

It was a very confusing stay.
The towels are not changed every day, or two days, or ... even when they are really dirty and i 've thrown them on the floor next to the toilet. They just hang them up again.
Toilet paper is changed when you give a empty rol, not any sooner.
In mai and septemper the hot water goes off for two weeks. Brrrr... I was so lucky.

There is no elevator. Can be a challange when you have a heavy suitcase and you are on the fourth floor.

I can live with all this ... no problem ... but in this case, 70 euro a night is rediculous.

no internet.
Laundry service is ex-pen-si-ve!

Unique Qualities: The resataurant and food is okay. There is no English menu, but one woman speaks some German and a few people try to speak English. Russian is no problem ;-) The price of the food is right.

Compared to the reception ladies ...The floor ladies are very nice and helpfull. Or maybe it's because older woman like me more ... :-) Mother instinct.
