It is noteworthy that an order for this house was made to П. Kizevetter by Alexander Dobrolyubov, a Nizhny Novgorod clergyman, the father of N.A. Dobrolyubov, the famous critic and publicist. In the middle of the 19th century, the house of the clergy of a parish and asylum for the poor were located there. One hundred years after, in 1950s the house was partially rebuilt and acquired some Stalin Empire style features, such as luxury, pomposity and monumentality.
Nevertheless even refashioned, this building is an architectural monument, as evidenced by a commemorative plaque inaugurated in 2011 in the former house of the clergy of a parish in connection with 175 anniversary of N.A. Dobrolyubov’s birth.
Today the 3rd floor of the building is completely renovated. The design-hotel “Pokrovka, 9a” is located there, that presents an interior project which preserves a mark of an epoch and at the same time ready to offer a modern leisure time at the highest level.
At guests’ disposal is the following: a twenty-four-hour reception of guests, delivery of foods from the best restaurants of the city, a family atmosphere of coziness and comfort, Wi-Fi access in the rooms, individual concierge-service thoughtful to all guests’ wishes.
