We booked a room for 4 nights, 4 to 8 of June. We arrived from the airport to the hotel, and they told us to go to an apartment building across the street because they were doing renovation works at he hotel and they didn't have a room for us. The lobby was crowded, so I guess that others had... More

Quite convenient location and good correlation price-quality. Full of groups of pensioners coming to see St Petersburg. Very reasonable food in the restaurant. But somehow you still feel a spirit of a Soviet times, not too unpleasant but distinctive.

I've stayed here twice, both stays were equally as solid with a good breakfast. Most staff are fairly friendly and helpful. Check in was swift as was checkout. I don't like the fact that they said there was a gym in the hotel in February 2012 and yet two years later the gym is still being refurbished! I don't need... More

Nice hotel, good location. Basic rooms. Some elevators were off-duty during all my 3-day visit. The food was okay, no complains. Oh, yeah, I had to walk to my room for at least 250 meters. C'mon, only one entrance and long-long-long (very long) corridors. More than 300 paces from the hall to my room.

I was in town for work and stayed at the hotel along with my colleagues. I was a bit scared going in after reading the reviews but thankfully it seems to be a more of a question of expectations vs. reality than actual poor quality of the hotel. The lobby is quite big and tries for the Russian grand feeling.... More

I have stayed here several times over the years, but I do understand it has now been upgraded as the prices have rocketed?,,, hmmm. This used to be a functional cheap mainly Russian only hotel but now tries to be more western. Great location at the end of Nevsky, but the sticky carpets, drugs and prostitutes really made it a...

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The rooms I had stayed in were rather large and spacious. This time, however, things certain had changed. The room did not have air conditioning (although, some in the tour did have air). We had to ask the front desk for a fan, which they let us have for the duration of our... More

The hotel is ok in general. But please, be careful NOT TO FORGET ANYTHING in your room after checking out! I forgot my coat (it was quite expensive) and when I called back to them after a couple of hours (when I realised I had forgotten), they insisted that nothing was found - although I left the room locked when...
