If space and amenities aren't your thing, then you might find this place to be just fine, however if you are accustomed to a certain amount of comfort I would look elsewhere. The rooms were so small that I could barely walk around my suitcase. The hooks on the wall were a good feature because there was no closet. They had a nice big window that opens completely, which you will need because the room has no air conditioning, and the ENTIRE hotel is smoking. That's right, you heard me...smoking in every room, on every floor landing and in all main lobby areas. The bathrooms were OK for me, as I am only 5'4, but any taller than that, the beds and the showers become a tight fit. The location is regrettable, as you can't walk to anything, no shops, no cafe, no grocery, and there seem to be an alarming amount of wild dogs that call this hill home. However, being on the hill, provides great views of the bridge in Vladivostok. There isn't a gym, but the breakfast is free and the restaurant upstairs was OK as well. The staff was polite and helpful, and a few of them even spoke a little English. Basically, I'm trying to sound like a spoiled western traveler here, but this place just doesn't provide some basic things most people are looking for.
