The doors in the shower stall of the hotel’s lobby were left wide open as a result of a fire in February 2016, the first to hit the city since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
A young student, who was staying with her mother and sister in the hotel, was awakened at around 1am by a loud thud.
She rushed to the lobby to see if anyone was injured and was met by a woman in a white T-shirt who had just come out of the shower.
“She was crying, she was hysterical, she said there had been a fire,” the student said.
“I remember her crying and she was crying. “
I said, ‘I need to get out of here, I’m not going to be able to go back’.””

The fire quickly engulfed the lobby and was extinguished but the hotel was left without the proper sprinkler system and the hotel management did not make any attempts to remove the debris from the walls.
The hotel is still closed and no one has been able to find out who was responsible.
“We were very lucky,” the young woman said.
The student said she was devastated by the lack of assistance from hotel management, the hotel staff and other guests.
“I thought, ‘What am I going to do?'”
The young woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she had spoken to some hotel staff who said they were not aware of the problem and that the hotel had not made any efforts to clean up the room.
“When we arrived, we found that the bathroom was completely blocked off,” she said.
The student is now planning to continue her studies in a different city. “
There were people with towels everywhere.”

“It was very difficult to stay in the same city as this,” she added.
“Because of this, I am not sure how I am going to get a job in Ireland in the future.”
