“Hidden central gem in St.P”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

What a pleasant surprise, this little hotel on Nevsky Street 88 in St Petersburg. Friendly staff, fabulous free breakfast. Free use of breakfast room coffee making facilities. Very helpfull with complimentary umbrellas when it rained. Small but clean comfortable, aircon room. Away from noisy street, 24 hour doorman and lift. Very easy bus ride from doorstep to anywhere in St.P - Hermitage,St Isaacs Cathedral, River boatrides, shopping.Ladies at reception helpful and bilingual, cleaners less friendly. I will always go back Anabel.

Room Tip: We got a room stuck in a corner but even that was good.

The hotel located in the heart of St. Petersburg, on the main street - Nevsky prospect, just 5 min. walk from the subway station. Most of the places of interest are in walking distance as well. The hotel is located in a renovated building, very well equipped and even has a small elevator, which is a very rare feature for hotels of the similar class.
The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and of pretty big size. There is a small refrigerator inside the room, tea making facilities on each floor and the breakfast area is open for the guests around the clock. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but just around the corner on Nevsky prospect you can find plenty of restaurants and coffee shops, most of them are open between 6 AM to midnight.
The atmosphere in the hotel is extremely friendly, all staff members are nice and very helpful. Guests are always greeted with a smile.The administrators speak English pretty well. Special thanks to Marina and Julia for their kind help.

Anabel is a very cozy and nice hotel located on Nevsky Prospect, so in a very comfortable position to visit all the main trouristic areas downtown.

Place: Walking Nevsky Prospect will become a routinarian part of your touristic days: after few days we started to feel this area almost as "home" :) Walking 15/20 minutes along the very attractive prospect you will reach most of the interesting places (Hermitage, Chatedrals, etc.).

Room: Small, clean and cozy. They look pretty new (we visited it in July 2013) and the furniture is well mantained. It has air-conditioning, flat-tv screen (only russian channels!) and a mini-bar. We had a room at the 6th floor and it was very silent and with a very nice view. The bathroom is quite small, but clean and very well mantained. The shower is big enough to have a comfortable shower. The bed was comfortable.

Breakfast: it is possible to have breakfast just between 8 to 10 am (but the staff seems to be pretty flexible): the choice is not very broad, but you'll get all you need (eggs, milk, cornflakes, jam, cheese, toast,...). The space for having the breakfast is very very tiny, so sometimes you have to share the table with other customers. Tea, water and coffe are always available in any common area, at any time.

Price: booking online in advance we were able to find a pretty good price, for sure much lower than most of the other hotels (same category) around.

Service: they are very nice and attentive. Most of them can speak english and are willing to help in any way. Checking out, we forgot a neckless in the room and when we come back later to collect our luggage they were so nice to advice us about it and to give them back to us.

Summing up: very pleasant staying. We didn't have any problem and we found the location perfect for walking aorund SP. Breakfast was the only aspect that can be improved, but the room, the service and the good price provide a great value. Definetely a goog impression and we will come back here when we'll be back in SP.

This hotel is in a great location, most of the staff are very good. The breakfast was good, although the breakfast area needs to be much bigger, very cramped when there is a full house. The fact that you can make tea or coffee at anytime is a big plus.

This hotel is located in walking distance of some of the main attractions of St. Petersburg - the Church of the Saviours of Spilled Blood, The Hermitage Museum. Shopping precinct, etc.

Rooms were clean and with tea making facilities. The staff were helpful. Breakfast, though simple, was fresh and sufficient. Even though on the Main Street, it is set back behind a row of other buildings so there was no traffic noise.

The staff were friendly and accomadating, the entry was set off from the Nevsky and was a bit shabby. It was very convenient as we walked to most of the city historical areas. Prices in St. Petersburgh are high so you don't get much for your money. I would recommend this hotel for those on a budget. The breakfast was adequate.

Placed in the centre of Saint-Petersburg this cozy hotel is not a bad choice for a budget traveller.

Pros:
- nice courtyard near the entrance
- satisfactory breakfast
- clean rooms

Cons:
- WiFi didn't work
- strange smell in rooms after a day's absence (probably bad ventilation)

But don't expect much for it's price.

Room Tip: Whatever room you'll choose you are always allowed to ask for the late breakfast
