Found this hotel on Trip Advisor and very glad we did. If you want to experience a Russian hotel that is modern, clean, with a great free Russian style breakfast and has a great view of one of St. Peterburg's historic canals from your room, and all for a reasonable price. The hotel is also historic, although I don't know how, because the receptionist told us that the museum on the third floor "is not working"! There must be some connection with France, for the hotel is decorated with a French motif, right down to the placemats at breakfast with "Bone (sic) Appetit" on them!

If you don't mind walking, it's only a mile or so to the major attractions of St. Petersburg--and you get to see a lot of the historic parts of the city too along the way.

One note: their website is not very clear about picking up the shuttle at various places when you arrive. We never did find the taxi spot to pick up the shuttle at the train station and I don't think it runs on a schedule--you have to call the hotel for pick up and there is a charge for the shuttle.

I can't say enough good about this place. So if you are up for a Russian hotel experience (salad for breakfast? okay!) this is the place to go!

This hotel still has the charm of better times and it is not far from downtown when you take their shuttle service. Later in the evening, a public bus can take you back to the hotel and the fare is not very high. Also, breakfast was good. It has the basic services and for the price, it is a good deal. It has WI-Fi, TV and other appliances in working order. It would benefit from a little upgrade here and there. Tea and cookies are available all the time. Nice touch. Convenience stores within walking distance and one Chinese restaurant reasonably priced.

I stay in this hotel when needed to be in the center in early mornings. So it is a best way to be in center SPB if you by car. I love this clean, very charming hotel, with a mysterious location. Rooms are clean and speacios without a/c with a bit old-fashioned furniture but all on duty at all. Great breakfast and amazing stuff.

It has changed over the years (not for the better), but it is still a sympathic, comfortable, little, friendly and safe hotel with quiet guests in a quiet part of the city, not far from the centre (easy to be reached by the hotel bus (free), or by a marsroutka/minitaxi (cheap). Alas the good restaurant has closed for dinner a year ago and a lot of the former staff has gone after a change of management. Only breakfast is served nowadays. The new staff is also friendly but only few speak good English.
The prices were reasonable but in fact become a bit to high these days, as services have decreased.
But you can still see the wall of fame (all great actors and theater director who have stayed in Matisov) and once when I was there it was the set for a television serial.

The hotel is located on an isle east from the city centre.
The hotel is closed to some of then ice water channels of the city and 25 minutes walk from teh Ermitage. The hotel offers to its guests a free bus service to teh nearest subway stations. We booked a room for 2 people and a baby and get a mini apartment consisting of 2 rooms + bathroom. 1 room had a doulble bed teh otehr one a couch where 2 pax could sleap. The area of teh hotel we stayed in was renovated. Breakfest is quite poor but we did not really care.
The people on teh desk are really cool and helpfull aldo they do not all speck english.
The hotel can help you getting your invitation for the VISA. They will charge 12€ per person and handle the file to a specialised agency that send us the invitations whithin 24 hours.

After 3 days in a too small hotel at nevsky I was searching for a nice hotel. I found this a little more from the centre. I like the Matisov Domnick hotel very much. Nice staff and nice rooms. I booked a standart room, because they were full I got a Deluxe room. Not only for one night but for the whole stay. I went with my motorbike and I could park my machine in front of the hotel. At night the gate will be closed. Distance to centre is pretty long but I have heard that Matisov has now its own small busses which brings hotelguests to the centre.
Next time when I visit St. Petersburg I will visit Matisov again. Nice rooms and good breakfast.

Stayed here on business, having previously stayed here a few years back.

This hotel is very average. It's not particularly cheap, nor particularly expensive. It is a bit out-of-the-way so if you don't speak Russian and therefore can't flag down passing cars to get a lift, you'll spend a lot on official taxis.

Rooms are decent, if unspectacular. Staff are very good and friendly by Russian standards. Breakfast is not great by Russian standards.

Not the best choice, St. Petersburg hotels are a very mixed bag, so don't rule it out.
