Reviewed 30 August 2013

The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and it is in a relatively good location.

However, the rooms are tiny (the smallest hotel rooms I have ever seen). I could literally touch both walls at the same time (so you can imagine how small the bed is, and you have to climb over your luggage to leave the room). The walls are also paper thin, so you can hear everything that is going on in the hotel, including people snoring and talking.

Stayed: August 2013

The hotel is located in the Petrograd area of St Petersburg, really close to the Peter and Paul fortress. If you are looking for a clean, friendly and budget hotel, this is the place.

There is a metro station 10 minutes away, however it is also possible to walk to the other side of the river and it will take you around 30 minutes to get to the Winter Palace.

The staff was friendly, there was a very strong WI Fi signal in the whole place. There was not breakfast option (although they have a kitchen to be used by everybody) but there are a couple of places to have breakfast near by.

I would stay here again if in Moscow and with a good deal.

Hotel Mark Inn is very reasonable for SPb. The room I had was clean and the bed comfortable. Internet access was free and good. The location is about 10 minutes to the metro and a 30-40 minute walk to the Hermitage. The hotel does not offer food service, but has a kitchen for guests. This is convenient because there is a grocery store just around the corner. They also sell bottled water and juices in the lobby area of the hotel.

Now the negative: the bathroom has a mild odor coming from it which, from what I understand, is not that unusual in SPb - shutting the door when not in use helps; the wall are thin and so it is possible to hear people in the hall though everyone was very respectful and there were no loud or noisy disturbances while I was there; the staff have very limited English and lack the customer service skills found in American and European hotels but were not bad.

Weighing positives versus negatives, this place comes out on top and I would chose to stay here again on a future visit to SPb.

Good location for experiencing the Petrograd side of town. Farmacies, dining, convenience stores and metro in walking distance.
The hotel is clean and well kept, nice self-catering kitchen, neat rooms. Could do with some mosquito net on the windows, though. Maid service was not consistent, but very good when performed.
Communication with staff was not the best, as some of them speak poor english, but that is more the rule than the exception in hotels here in general. Basic service as calling taxis and doing laundry seemed to be extremely troublesome for them and was done with a sigh (I saw the reception girl googling for the phonenumber to the taxi!) and they would make us load the washing machine and turn it on, yet they charged heavily for the service. They wouldn't fold the clothes, just threw them in a plastic bag, and didn't deliver it to the room.
Still, the spotless rooms and the reasonable price made up for it.

Room Tip: The en-suite rooms are well worth the money

Pros
It was cheap and especially so for spb as well as there was an apec intl forum on whilst we were there which made alot of the central hotels booked out or very expensive Relatively new modest decor and furnishings. Relaxed part of town opposite a large park Good access to Peter n Paul fortress (though its more of an underwhelming experiences in spb)


Cons
The drain gave off a foul sewerage smell that got progressivley worse over the 3 night stay. Turning on the shower seemed to make it reside abit but we had to make sure the toilet door was permanently. Hot water was tempermental and required time to switch on and wait for the water to boil. Reception, whilst friendly and tries to help, with the exception of 1 lady, spoke almost no english. Air con is not really an aircon, it was more like a fan, luckily it wasnt tat hot during our stay but it wud be terrible if it was hot as u cannot leave the windows open as there are lots of mosquitos and the electric msquito repellent seems to do little

Free Wi Fi.Excellent value for money. 650 meters from metro station Gorkovskaya. Slow processing of documents in our compulsory registration with the migration authorities. There is no refrigerator in the room. The entrance to the hotel and the courtyard is through cards. CCTV at the entrance. I recommend this hotel.
