Very comfortable and quiet room, extra large for a hotel room. Wonderful design. Amazing service. The hotel has a warm feeling of staying in a private house, but with all necessary hotel services. Quite unique hotel.

This is a great hotel, no doubt about it. We found the service excellent, the food excellent and the rooms and appointments excellent. Sure it's a little out of the way, but St.Petersburg is quite spread out as a city, so it really depends on what you are there to see. We don't mind walking and ended up walking back... More

Stayed for 7 nights with our 21mo daughter in the 2bed Barcelona room. It is LOVELY. Our daughter was delighted with the large window seat where she could watch the boats float past every minute or so. We could also see two major churches from our window. It is on the third story but no elevator so luckily it wasn't... More

Charming property, well located if the evening program involves trips to the Mariinsky for ballet or opera, or if you want a break from the tourist rush after a day of sightseeing. Very professionally run, with superb housekeeping, maintenance, and attention to detail.

This hotel is located in a beautiful house. The decoration is exquisite. The staff makes sure you feel right at home from the very beginning. Breakfast is really good. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a home-like experience with all the perks of being in a hotel.

Nice small and welcoming boutique hotel highly recommended. The place is charming, homemade breakfasts are delicious and the staff is really kind and committed to provide thoughtful and personnalised services. Slightly away from the city centre, notably Ermitage museum and the main street Nevskiy Prospekt...
