The fans came to the game of their team, which took place on June 15 at the Yekaterinburg Arena. A week before they arrived in the city, they found the hotel “Bolshoy Ural”, and from photographs it seemed to them suitable. For two days in a room for four people Uruguayans paid 20 thousand rubles – 2.5 thousand rubles per day per person, the newspaper writes.

However, when they arrived at the hotel, the men “were horrified,” Herman said. According to him, the situation in the rooms did not match the photo, and other Uruguayans refused to stay at the hotel. Herman and Mauricio still decided not to cancel the reservation.

This is not a hotel, it’s a time machine! We are sure that Lenin was the last guest here. Honestly, every night I was afraid that a monster would come out of the hole in the toilet and eat me. The only plus of the hotel is the location, although we were lucky.


By June 18, the hotel page on presents the same photos as in the material Some hotel guests left negative comments with complaints about hard and old furniture, lack of hot water, food, as well as showers on the first floor when living in a room on the sixth floor.

Last updated at 17:26: Deputy Head of the “Great Urals” Sergey told that the photos on the site are luxury and “retro-numbers”. Some “retro numbers” are under reconstruction and are not allowed to work, but they are open to builders, and photos of Uruguayans could have been made there, the hotel representative said. He explained that the administration had begun checking.

According to Sergei, there was no refusal from other fans, nor did anyone make any claims. He also added that the cost of living two people was 6,250 rubles for two days, not 20 thousand.

Photos with the cabin and so on – these numbers we have, they are posted on the sites, taken luxury, romantic and studio. […] All the rooms that are for sale, they are all photographed. When a person comes in and orders, he sees what number he is booking.

Photos in the article [], they refer to the numbers “luxury” and “studio”, but not to the numbers “retro.” And to compare – this is tantamount to comparing Mercedes with “Zhiguli”.
