I usually stay in international hotels when traveling, so this was a new experience, but how nice to get home from excursions and find a piece of home! Very very clean, the person in charge is available when you need her but it is really relaxing. You prepare your own breakfast and the kitchen is open night and day, with... More

We stayed in the swissSTAR B&B for three nights and a great experience, everything was clean and the staff was friendly. Only make sure that you get a pickup service from the airport or railway station as it is hard to find the place otherwise - it is not marked from the outside and you have to know where to... More

It is quite expensive, not very central for many sightseeing places, it was very hot in the room (stay during summer time) with open window very noisy at night nevertheless no air circulation, breakfast has to be made by yourself and dishes put in the dishwasher. It is more a hostel/backpacker. Staff, however, very friendly and helpful.

This B&B may not look like much from the street but once you enter you will find bright, modern, clean rooms and very helpful and friendly staff. The kitchen is always open and a good place to chat with other guests. Do take advantage of the airport pick-up as well as tours they will arrange for you. The location is... More

This B&B is the perfect choice for your city break in St. Petersburg. Located in a quiet area of the city centre, in approx. 15 minutes on foot you can reach Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue of St. Petersburg. The metro stations of Sennaya Square and Sadovaya are only 5 minutes away. I stayed in the double room with the... More

After traveling from Moscow to Vladivostok and back, this was the best. Everything was clean and functioning. The staff was very helpful, and arranged taxis for our departure. Airport pickup is good especially when you have luggage. An enjoyable stay in St. Petersburg.

This B&B is in a convenient location, clean, welcoming and comfortable. The airport-pickup service was excellent. The hosts are relatively friendly and very helpful, the breakfast was fine. As one of the previous reviewers we stayed in the large en-suite corner room and it was incredibly noisy. It was hot and so the windows had to be open and even... More

We stayed at the B&B for 5 nights. The place is conveniently located, near the Metro and walking distance to a few sites (by Russian standard). Wi-fi is great and the kitchen is very well equipped, you can cook anytime during the day. There is no aircon, except in the kitchen. It gets a little hot during the day but... More
