Situated on a quiet street overlooking a canal, it was a short walk to the many cultural events at the Old and new Marinsky Theaters. The rooms are very charming- exposed brick walls, random width hardwood floors, large picture windows and have nicely appointed modern baths with heated... More

Cozy design hotel in an historical house in the center of St. Petersburg. Each room is decorated differently, but the general idea is clear. "Patchwork" made ​​up of the world's cities.Quiet area close to the Mariinsky Theatre. This is really a perfect choice for cuples and frends.
