The hotel is close to the train station and is connected to Nevsky Prospeckt via a short 15 mins walk or bus which can be availed through a 2 min walk from the hotel. The front area of the hotel is quaint and inviting with a nice bar. The staff are very helpful and they appear like a big family... More

We stayed two nights in May and had a pleasant enough stay. The air conditioning or fan was not working in our first room and they promptly moved us to another room, which was fine. As others have said, the beds are not the most comfortable, but the rooms were clean. We were able to communicate with the front desk... More

Stayed 6 nights in June 2014. While the hotel is within a 12-15 minute walk to the nearest Metro station, the trolley buses are extremely convenient, cheap and easy to use. Trolley buses 5, 7 and 11 stop next to the hotel, cost RUB 25 (less than $1) with tickets purchased from a conductor on the bus (change given). The... More

Good hotel for a weekend break with friends. The staff were extremely helpful and really made our stay special. The location unfortunately meant we spent over £40 a day on taxis to and from the main attractions and this should be taken into consideration when booking. Our room on the 4th was large but sadly the beds were not very... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Taxis in St. Petersburg are truly expensive, but 40 pounds a day is excessive. If you had ordered a taxi at the front desk of the hotel, the fare would have been fixed in advance and would be considerably less than you end up paying when you go by the taxi’s meter. This...
