I believe haunting and somehow strange are the words.... But sad also, yes.

Welcome, Bryndis! And thank you for those excellent screencaps. I'm not sure I've seen that documentary yet. Which one is it from on Laura's site?

The first one(in your last post) is 'America' hotel at Ekaterinburg.

 Assuming that's the Hotel Amerika in Bryndis' photo, it is, or was, much , much larger and impressive than I had pictured it previously, which was as a small, nondescript single-story hotel. I'm not sure what that suggests about the Bolsheviks' meeting there , but it somehow seems different.

"The guard was controled by a sinister group of men stationed at the American hotel near the Ipatiev House"
It is indeed the Amerika hotel...hehe sorry I should have added some details :P

Yeah these screencaps are from Nicholas and Alexandra and Last of the Tsars.

Royal Russia has an article on the restoration of the Ropsha Palace. It includes a photo of Alexandra and her daughters standing on the steps of Ropsha alongside a current photo of the same spot.

The way the place has been left to ruin makes me very sad.

Nemos posted these, and I thought they'd make a good addition to the thread. It sounds like they are of a gate somewhere in the Alexander Park.
