This charming small hotel is like a country home in the heart of St Petersburg...large staircase ( no elevator) , large common room on each floor ( lined with books and memorabilia from various countries) , timber beams, very spacious rooms and bathrooms. A real find! True, it is a bit of a walk to the museums (Hermitage, etc.) but close to Yusupov palace, St Nicholas, Marinsky Theater, and other sights.
ask for Cologne Room, almost like a suite with full size living room adjoining bedroom. Bathroom has a 7 foot shower, bidet, large sink area. In addition, there is a large entryway to room, perfect for storing suitcases.
Breakfast is ample with choices....service a bit slow but very pleasant. Dinner very good.
Located on the canal is a plus.
