“Fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

What an amazing hotel. They offer outstanding customer service. The two receptionists are so helpful, friendly and warm. They can’t do enough for you. So here’s a guide to help you if you choose to stay here. If you email the hotel they will respond swiftly and can organise a driver to pick you up from the airport. He will meet you inside the terminal at a very reasonable cost. £23. Don’t be put off by the entrance and door way to the hotel as it is located in an old building. My room was large, exceptionally clean and modern. The hotel is very warm, spacious and quiet.The location is perfect and everything is within walking distance. They offer a breakfast service and chilled drinks. For the price of this hotel you couldn’t do better. They really gave me the best and most friendly service I have received world-wide.

This small Hotel is in a refurbished appartment building overlooking a canal. Lobby on the second floor. Friendly staff. The daytime receptionist speaks english and is very helpful. I had a compact but pleasant room with bathroom, absolutely clean. I enjoyed the breakfast which offered ample choices. The location is in an "up and coming" area of St.Petersburg. Dostoyewsky lived in various flats nearby and the area is the location of his masterpiece "Crime and Punishment". Short distances to the main attractions of St. Petersburg.
An excellent choice if you are not looking for a Hilton but for a budget hotel with local character. Outstanding value! Be aware: there is just a small plaque by the entrance to the Hotel. But it is easy to find with a printout of "googlemaps.com".

Room Tip: I had room No. 6 which is a single room. I have not seen the other rooms.

Do not let the first impression of this hotel put you off.

The hotel is very hard to find, as there is only a small plate on the door next to the café on the corner. You call up the number on the door in order to be admitted into a fairly grim looking staircase and go up to the second floor to a very small "reception" (you enter the door and there is a small window in the hall-way). This first impression of the hotel was fortunately in no way an indication of our stay there.

The room we got was spacious, with lots of light and with a view of the canal and St. Isaaks church in the distance. Definately among the larger rooms I have lived in at this price range. The hotel is very practically placed close to Sadovaya metro station and within walking distance to most of the biggest tourist-attractions in the center of the city.

Personnel were friendly and most of them actually speak a reasonable English (the ones in the reception at least), which in the city of St. Petersburg is fairly rare. There is free wifi on the hotel, which is working reasonably well.

I do agree with the review provided by Bright8. Hotel is clean and very convinient, it is situated right in the centte of the historical district, so all major attractions are within easy reach (10 min walk). The metro stop is just around the corner, however, we rarely used it as all major attractions were within easy reach. Rooms are bright and clean, the breakfast is good - other then cold meats/cheese/toasts you can also get fryed eggs. eggs with sausage or outmeal boiled in milk (quite tasty). There are also tea, coffee, juice, milk, yogurt, cereal. Quite filling.
Although the room is cleaned up every day, they do not change towels every day (every 3 days or so). The rooms do not have good sound proofing, so this probably is biggest concern. However, the windows are new and no noise is heard from the streets.
Transfer is available to/from airport or train station - we paid only 30$ for transfer from the airport.
The area is great and there plenty of eating places around. I can perhaps recommend the Dumpling place at Gorohovaya st., 3 (across from Admiralty). There are also plenty of Bakery places around in St.Peterburg so you can enjoy various russian pies (with apple, cabbage, meat, chicken, etc. you name it!)
For the english tours to Petergoff and Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin) go to the Gostinnyi Dvor on Nevsky - Look for Ecclectica Tours (http://www.eclectica-guide.ru/rec/rec.php). Tours are 60-90$ per person and are very good.

Overall this hotel is clean, cheap and has great location.

I confirm all the spoken words about this hotel. It's clean, unusual hotel with cosy, bright rooms at cheap price and it's right in the very heart of St. Petersburg. That's the most important thing. It's just 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel to Nevsky prospect and St.Isaac Cathedral.

I didn't have breakfast because I've always overslept it. So I can't tell you how good or bad it was. But there are a lot of restaurans, bars, McDonalds, Krochka-Kartochka and things like that nearby.

The subway's just behind the hotel. You just gotta turn around the corner. So if you don't feel like walking for 10 minutes to the Nevsky prospect, you can use the subway. The fare is 25 roubles. There is the subway's map everywhere and it's difficult to get lost. Just remember the colour of the line you need, and there will be no problem. The stations are announced and there are the signs with the lines' route at every station. So don't be afraid.

The hotel offer a transfer from/to airport. You can make a reservation right on the website.

Yes, there is no reception. There's just something like it. It more looks like a window at the entrance. But you can leave your stuff there if you got an early flight and you can be sure it will be safe.

And one more thing. The hotel is a part of building where residents of St.Petersburg live. The reception's on the fourth floor and the rooms and the cafe is on the third floor. There is a lift and the Coffe House on the first floor.

And of course I can't help but telling you about the well-known staircase. It's a typical staircase in a typical living house. It won't bite ;)

You're in St.Petersburg! Just look around. There a lot of sights what is more interesting than some staircase. Just relax and you'll have a very good time.

Room Tip: The only little minus of the hotel - it's not a very good sound insulation

Thank you for your review. Thank you for your warm words about our Hotel, rooms and staff. Our hotel is located in residental building, that is why the state of stairs is not ver good.
But Hotel is equipped with special protective doors that shield the hotel from the neighbors. It is a specific feature of mini-hotels in Saint-Petersburg.
I hope to see you in our Hotel next time!

Dear guest!
Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate all your warm words about our hotel! Our mini-hotel is situated in the residential building, so that we honestly have some problems with entrance. We pay a lot attention on service and cleanliness of rooms and public areas of the hotel.
We thank you again and we are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible !

we stayed at this hotel for one night and it was amazing ! very good prices and just the PERFECT LOCATION on the canal and 10 minutes walk from downtown. OK i admit its entrance is a bit creepy with the old staircase and small door and no lobby ... well but it's the spirit of the city right ??
