I stayed there once. The rooms weren't actually that bad, but it took an hour and half to check in as they wouldn't accept that the room they'd given me was in part of the hotel closed for renovation.

It included an example of famed Russian customer service, where the reception staff who dealt with me previously, suddenly decided to pretend they didn't speak English any more.

It's bad to read that, it's like tearing down a little piece of valuable historical art. I think we won't see that sort of modernist buildings constructed again, as architecture develops and explores new designs.

Drive by this one every day, most would be shocked if they knew what this building used to look like.
