“An absolute delight. What a find!”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

If you are going to the beautiful city of St P, stay here! St P was one of our favourite places, if not our favourite, on an extended backpacking trip through Asia and Europe. Anichkov was brilliant. It was warm, cosy, well appointed, well located and a real home away from home. The breakfast each morning is great. If you can forgive the stairwell, which needs a bit of TLC, you'll find this B & B delightful. A touch noisy at times because of the location. Little touches like bowls of lollies and umbrellas and cups of tea bought to the room. Big pluses like incredibly friendly and accommodating staff made our stay. We'd like to say a special "stravoutzyay" to Valerie for making our stay so memorable.

Like Petersburg itself, the satisfactions of the Anichkov are not immediately apparent, given its just-emerging-from-neglect atmosphere, the anonymous, non-descript entrance, the dim shabby stairway, the strangelypartitioned rooms and corridors, the street noise and light that never go away, and the oddly updated, glam-kitch fixtures and breakfast room. Nevertheless, the location is outstanding, the bed is comfortable, the bathroom small but modern with plenty of hot water, the breakfast tasty and ample and the English-speaking staff superbly helpful. Accept that it will be a little strange and "Russian" and enjoy the convenience, the location, the value and the hospitality.

Room Tip: The larger double rooms are much more appealing than the tiny "standard" rooms.

Although entering the hotel is a challenge, once you do it you find yourself in a nice environment. Once, shared by a few families as an apartment during the communist era, it still keeps its homelike atmosphere. The personnell is very helpful, the hotel is very clean but the single beds are very narrıow.
The location is great; it is on Nevsky Prospekt- the most popular street and all the tourist attractions are in the walking distance, highly recommended for feeling at home and good value for money.

This very small classic style hotel is a great find. There are no signs on the street, (to access you have to ring a small bell on the Karavannaja street enterance) so the finding part can be challenging. But when you do, you've got yourself a room on the most important street and all the essential places you might want to see in St Peterburg are very close (15 mins walk to the Ermitage, city bus tours begin 20 m from the place, shopping and metro station right next to the hotel). The quality of the beds is good, the service is good (make time for the a la carte breakfast). If, like me, you are not interested in a lot of extras - pools, gym, lobbybars, it is quite perfect. Rooms are of very different sizes, so ask specifically for a larger one if you need it.
The only thing to be careful about - if you're a light sleeper you might be bothered by the noise from traffic/peolpe on Nevski coming in through the windows. And this is at all hours and the only way to escape it is to have a room facing the courtyard. Myself and colleagues slept well though, even with windows to the main street.
They have free wireless and the photos displayed here are quite accurate.
