“Nice little hotel”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

I stayed for one night, a lovely little hotel in small quiet street, close to the canal and bridges that rise up at night, very beautiful views. Normal breakfast for light eat in the morning. Friendly staff, working with smile. The room was not in perfect condition, but still good for one or more night stay. Metro is about 500m from hotel, easy to go anywhere in city.

Room Tip: Choose a room on top floors

Great little hotel.
Breakfasts are ok. Dinners and wine are great. Very cosy. Old elevators... Very romantic!
The only inconvenience is that like in most old buildings in St.Petersburg there are damp basements which are nurseries for Mosquitos. They get in through the ventilation system.
Just a few minutes from the metro station.
No pets allowed.
Nice personnel.

I stayed at the hotel for 10 nights in August 2012. My overall impression/experience is good, but there are couple of things to keep in mind:

1. The walls in the rooms are not sound proof enough not to hear what’s going on in the hall or room next to yours. One night a guy in the next room decided to watch news at 3:30 in the morning, so I was ‘watching’ with him. You can also hear people in the hall walking, talking, opening doors.
2. Breakfast buffet is relatively small and is EXACTLY the same each morning. It is ok, if you are staying just for couple of nights or really like what they are serving to eat it every day.
3. The hotel is separated from the airport by opened bridges over Neva river, so if your flight is early in the morning you have to leave the hotel before bridges open or after they close. My flight was at 7.20 in the morning, so I had to stay last night at friend’s place.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, elevator starting from the second floor is not a problem, since a doorman can carry your things to your room.( it is a problem if it is difficult for you to take stairs to the second floor)
Keep in mind that your are being charged if you are making phone calls to the local cell phones, there are no charge for local ground line phones.
In general, the hotel is good, but if you can find a similar one in the city center, pick the one in the city center. I stayed in this hotel for sentimental reason since grew up in that area of the city.

We’ve stayed here in a standard room. The room was not big, but clean and quiet. The hotel is situated on Vasilievskiy Ostrov and is about 30 minutes walking from Nevskiy, or you can take a tube (1 stop) to the city center. The tube station is about 5-7 minutes walking from the Hotel. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, but I would not go walking there in the middle of the night, as it is not the city center. One should also not that during the summer time the central bridges across Neva close at night and it can be quite tricky to cross to Vasilievskiy Ostrov. Generally I chose this hotel as it is small and the service is personal and very nice. I would come here again if Traveling in summer, but I prefer to stay closer to the city center in winter as walking is not as pleasurable in the cold and windy winter weather.

This was my first visit to Russia, so I didn't know quite what to expect.
To my surprise, the hotel receptionists spoke good English.
Plus they were very helpful from organizing taxi to printing my ticket for Hermitage which I bought online.
The restaurant staff didn't spoke English very good, but they were eager to speak and did every effort to understand what you wanted.

The room was spacious with one big window, which - thank God- you can open.
I am a fan of fresh air, and it's the first thing I do when I enter a hotel room.
At some hotels you can't open at all and you are at the mercy of recycled air through a/c.
The bathroom was big and clean.
The only drawback was a little musty smell in the room.
The room was facing to teh back of the hotel, so you could sleep with open windows.

Location is 3 blocks from metro station, there wasn't too much amenities, except a sauna, which you have too book in advance and pay.

I liked the food in the restaurant, the room service- was fast and well cooked- ( I ordered pasta with vegetables and it was cooked al dente ).
I liked that it was quiet in the restaurant, so that I can work and have my coffee and tea.
The least I liked was the smell in the room.

Room Tip: I got Room number 10, facing to the back.But all rooms are quiet as it is located on a quiet street.

What can be more pleasant and wonderful than this authentic Russian Hotel? Cozy rooms, quiet and calm atmosphere and delicious food - especially homemade blini and sirniki for breakfast- make this hotel a great place to stay during your vacation in Saint-Petersburg. My family and I enjoyed 2 weeks there. There is a free wi-fi and laptops for rent, and this fact was very helpful for me. The hotel is situated not far from a market, where one can find everything to indulge oneself with local food. Also, the hotel is not far from the metro station, though St-Petersburg is a city that should be visited by going on foot.

Our frustation started when we arrived at the train station coming from Helsinki. To get a taxi was a nightmare. We gave the hotel details to the taxi driver and they had a "meeting" among the few drivers because no one knew the hotel. When we arrived there after many "turn arounds", we felt like we were coming back to the Cold War time. 45 minutes to check in and they wanted to retain our passport (NO WAY). Try to say that to a Russian that hardly speaks any English. People were very strange and careless. We came with 4 pieces of luggage, I looked around and asked for the elevator. There is an elevator but you have to walk up one level, go thru a door, come down one floor and get into what they call elevator, which is a joke. Hardly fits one person and 1 bag and the door is a "bang type" made of wood, no locks!!. You arrive what should be your floor and you have to walk up one more floor. Room? They try to make it neat, but dates back the 70 & 80's (don't trust the pictures). We spent one night only out of two and we moved to another hotel (very nice one!!), paying for a night that we didn't stay. Besides, when we arrived at the reception, there were two Escort Girls sitting on the reception waiting for their clients. What a disapointment. DO NOT RECOMMEND. And this is my very first review that I wanted to make sure to write!!!! But don't miss the chance to visit the city. It is just beatiful
