We stayed at the hotel one week in our business trip in March. The rooms were quite warm and in my room I kept the window open during the nights. The Wi-Fi could be used only occasionally (it didn't work). However, the quality of services compared with the price level was quite ok until the last evening when we went... More

This is a decent hotel for the money - good location, large rooms with comfy beds and clean. The only thing that I would comment negatively on is the breakfast - it is not good but if all you want is coffee/tea and toast then it's fine. There are no cereals or pastries, just some boiled eggs, hot dog type... More

"Dostoevsky Hotel" (not Dostoevskiy) - this spelling was selected for promotion. It is located near metro station, not far away from the main avenue of S.Petersburg - Nevsky Prospect. Dostoevsky museum is also nearby. Rooms are rather small but enough for a few days stay. Simple breakfast and sometimes overcrowded. The lobby is very small. At a high season (during... More

We stayed here as a party of 33 young adults and superivsors as part of a tour group. Immediate positives: the room was clean, shower worked, bed was comfortable, breakfast simple but adequate to set you up for the day. Small negative: the bar was closed during our stay for a wedding and a party; the room was a bit... More

It is necessary to scratch deep to find something complimentary about this hotel. The only redeeming features are its location close proximity to Nevsky Prospect) and access to a supermarket and shops that are in the same building. Checking in and out was reasonably efficient. Note to the management: tell the front desk staff to smile even if it is... More

The reception printed my credit-card on a separate paper and refused to give me a copy. This was after they had already once used the card for payment in a regular way. Explained that the second paper was for "internal" purposes? Be aware!

The only thing this hotel had going for it was it's location. It was a 2 minute walk from Nevsky Prospect. The hotel is very expensive for what you get. A small room with a TV from 1995. The drains in the bathroom smell like sewerage. The air conditioning worked for 2 nights out of the 5 we were there.... More

I booked this hotel for 2 nights and I felt really disappointed to discover that this hotel is a 4 stars but it really seems a 2 stars....The reception is small, when you meet big tourist groups you can't enter/exit. Staff is quite polite but they are not able to give you many touristic information (they can book for you... More

This small boutique hotel is far from luxurious but it is clean, comfortable and ideally located near the metro, Nevskiy Prospect and next to a market that is open 24 hrs. It has free Wifi that is sometimes slow and has a gym. The breakfast buffet is great. The rooms have hair dryers but no irons.
