“A charming hotel in a perfect location”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I stayed in this charming hotel in the end of april. The hotel is situated inside an old russian building, very clean, very silent and quiet, in a perfect location, few minutes walk from the city center (St. Isaac Cathedral, Hermitage...) and very close to the underground. Kind and polite staff. I really suggest it. They only could improve breakfast, wich actually is not so varied comparing with the hotel's rates.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Lovely room, tall ceilings clean and the ladies on duty were wonderful. They all speak english which is very important as no one does especially taxi drivers. The cleaning/cleaner was very good and i am fussy. They even brought breakfast to my room, and coffee whenever i wanted it. If not travelling with a tour always get them to talk to the taxi driver and explain exactly what you want, or phone them and get them to talk to the russian person ... very useful. The entry to the hotel is "a bit of a shock" old and derelict, but i think this is communal and cannot control. Just ignore it! The front door is a very impressive brass door but when you pull forward - dont get your feet in the way!. I would definitely go back. Great location, near lots of good restaurants and all the attractions. I found it good value esp for St Petersburg which is not.

Room Tip: Taxi drivers are very surely and do not speak english. Dont know where they are going you really ne...

In May 2014 we wanted to spend a weekend at Casa Leto and had a confirmed reservation for the Quarenghi room. We had chosen the latter because we wanted a quiet room overlooking the inner court. Upon arrival the room had been given to someone else and an other room which was offered to us is exposed to a very busy street and was therefore unacceptable. So we had to change hotels. Our Casa Leto experience has therefore been a big disappointment, although we initially had a favorable impression during the booking process during which we were assisted in obtaining the tourist visas.

stayed there june 2014. great location 5min walk to Hermitage. they are renovating an old palace. entrry way being rehabbed this year. Great old rooms. Ours had a Venitian chandelier. Great service. The ladies will make you tea at any hour. book you with any tours (at a fee) and arrange a tour in any language. Calll taxis with the make and number and how much you will pay(important as taxis are unmetered))cook you porridge or eggs any style. Fabulous coffee for the start of a day. only 5 rooms and on the expensive side but locaiton and service are worth it

If you are traveling to St. Petersburg without a tour group you must consider staying at the Casa Leto. They helped me with a visa invitation, restaurant recommendations and reservations, a private guide for two days, and transportation to and from the airport. They were always prompt in answering my many emails prior to my visit. All of the employees speak excellent English. The location is quite convenient to all of the tourist sites.
This is not however a hotel but more like a bed and breakfast as there is only a handful of rooms, no lobby, and amenities that a hotel might usually provide. The rooms are very clean and quite large and the bathroom is updated and roomy also.
Breakfast is nothing special but they do make eggs to order and have the standard yogurt, cereal, etc. It is located on the second floor (no lift) of what appears to be an apartment building and the stairway would scare away all but the most intrepid traveler but it isn't representative of what is on the other side of their door.
They carried through on every promised service or arrangement that I requested. When you are traveling to Russia on your own that is very comforting. I highly recommend Casa Leto.

This small and cosy hotel is more of a B&B. The location is tops, the service is more than personal, they are outgoing and helpful in every way, but if you are expecting a standard hotel, it isn't. We would return there, but cons stated in previous reviews exsist.

Room Tip: Pick a room with air condition. On a hot summer night leaving the window open is a problem since th...

Good location to reach many of the sights. Stayed in the larger Rossi room which was ok but nothing special as far as hotel rooms go. The hotel is in a residential block and the entrance is far from welcoming which makes The part of the building the hotel uses like an oasis. Staff were very helpful and keen to make sure everything was ok. Didn't consider it to be the best value money or anything particularly special to warrant the price paid. Breakfast was ok but limited
