German B&B
Ranked #110 of 1,020 St. Petersburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

I had a great stay at German B&B. Nadja was extremely helpful and informative. I booked a last minute stay there and had no issues with communicating about the details. Before arriving, a document with specific directions was provided which was extremely helpful. The room was a good size and all the basic amenities needed. The bed was also very comfortable! They also provided a convenient car service to the airport for a very good price and there were no issues with my 4 am pick up! Thank you German B&B!

Very good place where to stay in St-Pb and feel like at home. 10 min walk from Vosstaniya metro station and Nevskii Prospekt. Shops all around to buy food and cook in the full equiped kitchen.
Welcoming from Nadia is very benevolent, and she is available to give good advices.
I recommend this place.

Room Tip: Room #4 is the quietest

All you want from a good B&B and a bit more. To reassure everybody, the two essentials, heating and cleanliness, are 100% covered. On top of that you get spacious rooms and, within a limited budget, attention for details in the interior design. The two bathrooms are maybe not the stongest point of the B&B but they in order, clean and have basically everything you need. Breakfast you get yourself out of the fridge, but the B&B did invest in a nice expresso-machine. Location is very good, quiet street, safe area (you may not go for that reason to St.-Petersburg, but there is a nice Irish pub two blocks away), frequent and quick trolley-bus connections to the centre (Hermitage). I did not meet the owner, as she was out of town for a holiday when I was there, but still before I arrived and also while I was there, over telephone, she did everything she could to follow up if everything was going well. In short, I found in 5.Sovestskaya a B&B which takes you behind the facades of St.-Petersburg.

St Petersburg is exciting and fascinating but can be overwhelming. We were delighted to have Sovetskaya's help and to be able to return there to recover from the hustle and bustle and confusion of the big city, strange language and busy crowds. Rooms were comfortable, breakfast was good and we enjoyed swapping notes and learning from other interesting guests. Overall, Sovetskaya was very good value.

Room Tip: Don't worry - all seemed to be comfortable and clean.

Location is good, not far from heart of the Saint Petersburg city and not far from Metro station \ near the hotel are some coffees and shops + bus and trolleybus stations \ very democratic views and professional service \ very attentive and polite staff - always ready to answer any question and to help or give advice

We stayed for 2 nights in 5. Sovetskaya. Before we arrived the service was great - Nadja organised our visa invitations and also our overnight train tickets to Moscow. She was very quick to reply to email and a pleasure to deal with. Once in St Petersburg it is a little difficult to find at first - once on the correct street you turn right into the first alley/courtyard - the door is then on the right (I have attached a picture), there is no sign - you just ring number 4. This was the only difficult part and actually a Russian man who lived next door quickly realised we were struggling and showed us the way. So then on to the B&B - lovely clean 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. with communal kitchen area. Nadja showed us around, her English was great (although she wouldn't agree) and she explained everything. Our room had 2 clean single beds, a sofa, desk, chair and plenty of space. 2 windows onto the road but it was not too noisy. The bathrooms were clean and we didn't ever have to wait long. Breakfast was help yourself which was ideal as we were out until late and so liked to eat breakfast late too. On our day of checkout we were able to leave our bags (although in the hallway used by all residents of the B&B so you may not want to leave valuables) until we left for the night train to Moscow. The only reason for giving 4 star to service was that there was only someone on site for a very limited time - this didn't matter to us though. we enjoyed it and would return. Thanks
