“Excellent hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013 via mobile

I wasn't expecting a great deal from this hotel and was therefore very pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and the room was great. Big, very clean and quiet. The breakfast was fantastic and really set you up for the day.
My only problem was the area it was in. A little dingy, but 10 minutes walk and you were close to Nevsky Prd, so not too bad.
If you don't speak Russian, don't bother with the local cafes, go into the tourist areas.
Overall a great hotel and very comfortable for a good price.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with friends

We just came back from a lovely 8 nights stay at this hotel. And what a great hotel this is! Very good service, very friendly personnel and very very clean rooms.
This made our stay in St Petersburgh a very lovely one!
Would recommend this to everyone who wants a nice and clean boutique hotel with good service at a ver reasonable price!

Its a 2 star hotel.
Very dirty restaurant. Who in their right mind puts milk and yoghurt next to a heating source so its warm? So the breakfast was not very good.
The rooms where not cleaned very well, was makeup on the soap dispenser and on the sink.
I asked for a shaving kit/razor but they does not provide that. What kind of 4 star hotel does not provide shaving kits, never heard of before.
The room i was staying in (104) has floors 2 and 3:s pluming going near the wall of the bed. I could hear every flush and every shower guest above me took. Terrible experience for the amount of money this hotel costs.

The staff was very helpful. The breakfast was both good and interesting. The Room was bigger than expected and well furnished. The beds a bit hard, though. Two metro stations were close by and lade the expropriation of the city easy. Might stay there again.

09.06-11.06.2013 very good hotel. wonderful staff, we immediately settled, the center, near the Fontanka river. We arrived at 10 in the morning, though check in 14-00 and we immediately settled. Departure at 12.00 and we are only at the beginning of the 14 left and us nobody spoke a word. It is a pity that Breakfast until 10 am. We walked at night and so early at Breakfast could not stand up, those once slept, and the second time hastily got up and went down was the Breakfast buffet, meal normally have been scrambled eggs and cereal, juice, tea, juice, croissants, and something else.

A good hotel if it was rated as a 2 star hotel. Since it is rate and charge as a 4 star hotel, there was a lot of things that could be improve: the reception is small and not confortable, the breakfast tables were always dirty, guests had to clean for themselves, the poor quality of the toilet paper, the size of the bathroom that was very small, all the little things that we had to pay extra, as a copy, a print or the slippers in the room, and the location (half hour to the city center).

We stayed in a 4 star hotel in Moscow and it was a lot better, really a four star.

Hello Angela
I was very dissapointed to read your review.
We have an official certificate for the 4* hotel and we have a standard bathroom size, not very big , but not too small, by your opinion .Everybody like our reception , it is not so big , but comfortable, stylish and has a big table with 4 chairs, small table near reception desk with 2 antik white chairs and a big lether sofa, antik furniture, nice lamps and antik chandelier
You didn't pay extra for the print, copies , slippers(slippers and bathrobe are free in the interior room you had) and even you didn't pay the fee for the transfer from airport ( you didn't find our driver who was wating for you and even didn't call to the reception to know where he was )
We will check the situation with the restaurant and will improve it,if it will have a place, but I think, may be you are talking about another hotel?

We stayed here for a few days in May. The hotel is not very big, but cozy. The location is great – close to Subway station and walking distance to Nevski prospect. The reception staff was very polite and helpful. They gave us the opportunity to check-out a bit later than normally without additional charge. Breakfast was good and we liked the lunch in the hotel's restaurant as well. Free Wi-fi and the parking place for our car were also among advantages of the Karamazov brothers hotel. We would definitely stay here again.
