A boutique hotel for me is a small, petit hotel, with nicely thought through furnishing and staff that cares.
By that definition, St. Peter's Boutique Hotel has to cross-out the "Boutique" from its name.
Technically the hotel has everything: a very central location close to the river and the old town with cafés and restaurants, a free & fast wi-fi connection, rooms with relatively new furniture, mini-bar, etc.
Problem is though: it's lacking atmosphere and the staff hangs out in the lobby, watching you when you enter, smiling at you but they they really don't care, btw. when you ask them something they do it, but it always feels you have to apologize for asking something and disturbing them from chatting to their co-workers.
The rest are details, such as the the night-club next-door (note: if your room is on the other side of the club you don't hear it), a once open door when I returned to my room, some water-boiler going on-and-off in the middle of the night so that I couldn't sleep, the not-restocked mini-bar, the breakfast at the lower end of the scale.
If that hotel would have more caring staff, it would change a lot. Like it is now, it is just a relatively cheap and relatively clean hotel with free wi-fi in a central location. Don't expect more but if that's what you need the hotel is a good choice.
