“Great and friendly hotel”
Reviewed 1 October 2007

This friendly little hotel is definately worth checking out. The rooms are large, bathroom a tad small but suitable. TV has english channels, windows can be opened for fresh air, beds comfy. The staff speak good english and are very friendly and obliging. Happy to negotiate a taxi to the airport for us. Breakfasts are great - they even have toast! Plus they offer a choice of hot dishes, cereals,yoghurt etc. Very secure and safe. In a local student/university area and lots of cheap eats nearby. Good hour walk into downtown St Peterburg or take the metro which is nearby.
