Set in a former mansion and located only minutes walk from The Hermitage, this wonderful , comfy boutique hotel offers great value with spacious rooms. Overlooking a canal, it oozes history and class. The reception staff speak English and are very helpful. The adjoining restaurant offers excellent Russian and other meals and is very reasonably priced. Furthermore, they give 20% discount off the price if you are hotel guest. Buffet breakfast is excellent. Approximately 5 minute walk to Nevsky Prospekt and all its shops and cafes.

Dear guest, thank you for your comments. As we see on your photo you've been staying in the room which was after rennovation and there were some inconviniences before because of the smell. It was mentioned in one of the previous reviews. We are happy to know that now accommodation in this room leaves pleasant impression. To have a feedback from the guests is really helpful! We look forward to welcome you again!

The perfect choice for my family of 5. We stayed in the 3 room apartment which was exactly what we needed. Clean, comfortable and welcoming after a long day sightseeing. We found the restaurant and breakfast to be great, enough variety for all the family including my vegetarian daughter. We particularly enjoyed the cereal, not one you can get in the UK. The staff were always very helpful without being overbearing.
But my highest praise has to go to the hotel staff who were always friendly, helpful and very patient with my many difficult requests. Even hiring a taxi for us to visit the outside of the Smolny Institute at 10.00 at night on the Saturday.
They also arranged taxis to and from the airport which removed any worries for me.
The location is perfect for so much of this lovely city.
We were also recommended the Pogreeb Restaurant by the Hotel and had one of the best meals I have had in a long time and again no problem having a vegetarian with us.

We visited St Pete from April 21 till 28 for tourism. The hotel is in a great location, in walking distance from the Hermitage sq, and all the seightseings (except that the whole city is a sighteeing...!).

The hotel is cosy, with nice decoration and layout. Our room was at the third floor, spacious enough, with two windows overlooking Moika river. If you like sleeping quietly, then dont choose a view room, because tourist boats pass al the time and use loudspeakers but also cars and motorbikes make a lot of noise.

The staff is the real asset to the hotel, everyone is gentle, very helpful and speaks very good english. We already had the chance to estimate them, with the visa procedures, when they proved very helpful and immediate. Congratulations!

To what regards the drawbacks, there was this strong smell of paint in the room, due maybe to recent rennovation, so we had to leave the windows opened all day and the dust came all in. At night it was a problem. This is a point that other travellers made months ago, I dont understand why the hotel doesnt consider it important so that to try and resolve the problem.
Second drawback is the really poor breakfast, consisted of the basics, awful bread.
But bigger problem is the not so polite manners of the staff in the resto, not something specific, the general attitude was negative.
Also very small elevator for two people only, wasnt a problem for us, we used the stairs.

The above mentioned, I would recommend this hotel, but I would add that the cost is high, providing that in the city there are 5* hotels with the same price (we discovered it late) but also in Europe, hotels like that cost a lot less. This is not to underestimate the hotel, it is a general observation, St Pete is a surprise to what regards the cost of living: expensive and economic at the same time.

Dear guests, we thank you for the detailed comments and first of all bring our apologies for inconviniences caused by the smell in your room because of the rennovation. We'll certanly take your note into account and we'll reserve more days for room ventilation after repair works.
As for the situation in the restaurant we are trying to improve the service there from day to day and believe it will become really pleasant place. The remarks of the guests help us to understand what should be reformed. Thank you!

I stayed there for 5 days (April 17th to Apr 22nd) with my family. Very good location, (close to the main POIs in St Petesburg - you can go by walk to the Hermitage, Chuch of the Splitted Blood, St Isaac Cathedral, Nievsky Prospekt, Marble Palace, Summer Gardens, Neva Embankment, ect); rooms with very good size, a nice view to Moika river, nice decoration and equipments (including iron and iron board), very clean.
Besides the qualities above, the staff made us feel at home. Always very polite, ready to help and give all information and service requested. Very proactive and antecipating our demands.

One history to highlight - When we were in our way to the airport, to get the plane back to Brazil, the taxi driver received a call from the hotel in hus mobile informing that we had forgot a coat and a shirt in one of our rooms. The lady form the reception was able to arrange another taxi to bring the clothes to me in the airport just in time. I'm a ffrequent traveler and have never seen that before! Fantastic!
Thank you very much Maria!!

I travelled to St Petersburg with my family in order to take my 79 year old father on a return trip to Russia, a place he loves but had not visited for almost 30 years. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment at the Pushka Inn, with an additional double room for my sister. Everything about the apartment was great- rooms are really generous, beds comfortable, bathrooms good and very clean. The kitchen area was really useful for dad to make a pot of tea, and the fridge kept the beers cold too! The staff were unfailingly polite and helpful, including in the restaurant where we ate breakfast and a good evening meal. It is an ideal location for the Hermitage, but also for wandering in the other historical areas of the city. Our only gripe was that my sister's room had been recently painted and the fumes were really strong, but we did not ask to swap as it was a lovely room with a canal view. I'm sure the staff would have helped if we asked them. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend the Pushka Inn, especially for families.

After a business visit to St Petersburg where I was staying in a typical business hotel I decided to change my style and stay in the centre of the town. The Pushka Inn which I found on tripadvisor was the perfect choice. It is well located, comfortable, close to the Hermitage with excellent staff who offered me lots of advice. I enjoyed eating in the Restaurant and found the room simple but very comfortable. All in all it was very good value for money. I spend about half my time in hotels so I have plenty to compare with.

Room Tip: Room # 33 is very suitable for single occupancy
