For those not familiar with hotel accommodation in St.Petersburg, and Russia in general, probably this quick summary will be useful. Generally speaking, there are some well established global hotel chains in big cities, including St.Petersburg, however they all claim to be 4/5 stars and hence demand a high price for their rooms, which in some cases might rival prices in London and Paris. The truth is that the rooms are small, do not really match their 4/5 star rating and just not worth their price. Until recently there was no alternative to these chains and hence tourists had no choice but to stay there and pay the price. All of this has changed with appearance and rapid expansion of small privately owned mini-hotels. These are built in place of former flats, which are refitted to look and function like hotels with limited number of rooms. Obviously not all of them are the same, and tourists should choose carefully to avoid bad experience. But the question is how do you choose? Suddenly tourists got too much choice and difficulty of picking the right hotel while not being taken for a ride.

Now that you know the situation with accommodation in st.Petersburg, you will understand my comments and feedback about this guesthouse. Personally, I've stayed at this hotel every time during my visits to St.Petersburg. It is a brand new hotel, which I believe opened only 2 years ago or so. I was one of the first visitors there and came back only there ever since. One of the best things is that it has new stuff all over, new beds, new linen, new bathrooms, new everything. Why is it important? Because it means that hotel is ultra clean and tidy, and no nasty surprises you can easily find in other hotels.

The rooms are good in size, but not massive, and have all you will normally need including things that you won't even find in well known global brands like Holiday Inn. All rooms are decorated uniquely with attention to detail and, dare I say, designer touches like specially cut and matching bed covers, furniture and curtains. Beds are very very comfortable with very soft bed linen. It's even higher quality than linen I use at home!

Bathrooms are nice and have heated floors, which is a bonus if you are visiting during Russian winter :)

Breakfast is included in the room's price. It is nothing special, pretty much what you would expect to find at any decent hotel. However they do serve really good coffee using a special coffee maker similar to Nestle Nespresso!

They have free WiFi Inet and their reception can help you book a taxi, tickets, tours around the city, and just about anything else! That's more like a 5 star hotel than a B&B.

Another thing I forgot to mention, and one of its biggest advantages, is that this hotel is right in the city centre. It is located on Nevsky prospekt where it meets Palace Sq with Hermitage. You can't get any closer to city centre than this, any closer and you will be sleeping in the Hermitage! :) Unlike other hotels, where you will need to travel, you can easily walk to just about anything you will want to see or do in St.Petersburg in under 30 mins. The nearest 5 star hotel is Astoria which is located much further away and will cost you many times more for dubious service and questionable quality.

Overall, all I can say is that you won't find a better hotel in terms of price/value anywhere at St.Petersburg!

I have stayed in “Nevsky 3” twice this year and each time it had a great experience. It’s a very small and very cosy 4-room mini hotel. Everything is brand new and there is a great attention to detail, which gives a very homey feel and it’s great to relax there after a busy day in the city.

Rooms are of good size, very clean and well equipped. Even though it’s right in the center (literally 2 minutes from the Hermitage and the Palace Square) the windows are facing into the inner yard and it’s surprisingly quiet. I absolutely loved their beds, they are sooo comfy!

The girls that work there are very friendly and helpful. I have never had their breakfast but I know they make good Lavazza coffee.

I think this mini hotel is a little hidden gem in St.Petersburg and I would strongly recommend it to any traveler be it for business or family holiday, just as I have recommended it to my friends and family!
