Breakfast is included, and you have a choice of four menus. Each has a meat option, but veggies will find that there is so much on each menu that you'll not be hungry if you just out the meat to one side and eat the rest.
The hotel is a trolley bus ride from town, but there are no hotels close to Simferopol's centre. There is also car parking and the hotel is 2 minutes from the Central Bus Station for departures all over Ukraine, the Crimea, and Europe in general.
The hotel has a casino (a room with slot machines), a bar (some settees in reception and a sulky barmaid), a newsstand (Ukrainian and Russian titles only), a nightclub (watch your wallets, these girls aren't cheap), and a restaurant (serving Russian staples).
At £25 for a double en suite this is expensive for this part of the world, but you do get LOADS of free stuff: two pairs of Hotel Moskva slippers, toothbrushes, razors, shaving gel, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, comb, sewing kit, and even a chocolate on your pillow. The staff doesn't speak much English, but is friendly and tries its best.
We LOVED it!
