Price does not justify hotel standard - very basic rooms, crowded breakfast area, front desk staff unhelpful, small foyer chaotic when groups checking in/out. Location is good but there are many hotels in same area. Unreliable internet access and needed new password everyday.

This is a good variant to stay if you need to place a group of people at a reasonable price - this hotel was designed to host groups of tourists, and mostly has twin rooms for 2 persons to stay in 1 room. Beds are more than modest, but you might ignore that if sleep was not your aim in... More

Excellent location in St. Pete I love the liocation where the hotel was. On the main drag and close to everything! I had problems in each floor plan, too confusing when you get out of teh elevators and you try to find your room. I was there for two days and I was always getting lost. The directions are VERY...

We were very happy with this hotel! As it was our first trip to Russia, we weren't quite sure what to expect, but everything was good! Our room and bathroom were both scrupulously clean, and our bed was comfortable. Lucky for us (non-smokers), smoking had recently been banned in Russia, and we had no trouble therefore getting a non-smoking room.... More

The Hotel has his reception on ground floor, all other rooms are from the 5th floor up. If you see the reception you think that you are in a cosy small Hotel, the truth is that it's a Bunker like Building. Very basic furniture. My room faced the courtyard of the shopping center, the windows are fixed. The air recycling... More

We stayed in this quite expensive hotel for 2 nights (200 Euros per night) - prior to boarding a river cruise ship. The room we were given was clean, comfortable and reasonably quiet (some of the other guests made a lot of noise whilst walking down the passage in which our room was situated). The bathroom/toilet was very clean and... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. First, we were amazed by the fact that it is such a large hotel with such a tiny foyer and reception area. The staff were friendly and helpful but we waited for ages to check in and had to battle through a tour group who had left their bags everywhere as there... More

Room prices were astronomic for the quality. Wifi signal was extremely poor, 2 out of our 5 devices couldn't even find signal, and the rest three had trouble all the time with signal disappearing and disconnecting. Breakfast was not even close to what you would expect for the price, and the overall service of the staff varied from average to... More

I suppose I was spoilt coming here from The National in Moscow but I still expected more. A lot of reviews describe it as a stone's throw from the major tourist attractions. Well I've got a pretty good arm but I couldn't get a stone that far Don't get me wrong it isn't in the middle of nowhere but it's... More
