As has been referenced by other reviewers this is not the Ritz. However in my opinion the location and price more than made up for the lack of facilities.
The hotel is located on the top floor of an apartment block down a side alley. You need to buzz up at a metal outside door and then walk up a few flights of stairs to the reception. We never had a problem with this. A couple of times when we arrived back late the receptionist was clearly woken by us buzzing up but they always responded.
We stayed for four nights. We stayed in a double room. It had a nice bed and was very clean. There was a television but it had no English speaking channels and only fuzzy Russian ones. The showers are shared but there was never a queue for one.
The location was superb allowing us to walk to all tourist destinations. We were able to navigate to the train station for the train to St Petersburg without issue and we took the train in to the hotel from the airport also with minimum fuss.
