For a relatively small amount of money by St. Petersburg standards we were picked up at the airport by the hotel's driver who took our bags and guided us up two flights of stairs to the hotel located in what appears to be a run down but centrally located Soviet era apartment building . The young woman who checked us in made us feel very much at home by showing us the breakfast room, explaining the services available at the hotel and then showing us to our room --in what amounts to a tiny hotel consisting of only five or six rooms. Our room was spacious and comfortable but in need of a good professional decorator. There was sufficient closet and dresser space for a five night stay for two people. The TV worked but was difficult to figure out and required help from the staff. The bathroom was just adequate. The shower in the tub worked fine. Breakfast (included in the room price) was served every morning in the breakfast room. It was just average The hotel also uses this room to serve snacks in the afternoon. What sets this little hotel apart is good, friendly service. We hired our own guide who turned out to be way below our expectations. As soon as we arrived back at our hotel, we asked the manager what we should do. Within 10 minutes time we had a new guide who was terrific and less expensive than our first guide. The hotel staff was also quite good at making restaurant recommendations and getting us reservations. This hotel isn't for everybody but could improve markedly by hiring a good decorator, putting some money into the bathroom fixtures and serving a tastier breakfast.
