Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2013

The place is clean, safe, close to major sights, and has a helpful enough staff. So it certainly does the trick for a stay in St. Petersburg. But I do agree with the other reviewer - there were large groups that traveled here that could be loud at times.

Extermely good location on Nevski Prospect. Walking distance to all touristic places in the centre. The place is clean and modern and staff speaks english. I only found the sphere not great. Not a lot 'backpackers' mainly russians and people in big groups. A lot of noise.
