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

Lots of reviewers talked about the great value, decor and cleanliness of this gem of a B&B. I would also like to add that Elena and Irina, the two Russian ladies that greet and clean and generally manage this B&B are incredibly helpful, friendly and welcoming. The Swiss owner is well represented by these lovely hosts. Recommendations on restaurants, transportation,... More

My friends and I stayed at swissSTAR during 7-10 April and so impressed with the service. They provide clean facilities and breakfast. The location is perfect for us. We can walk to Nevsky Prospekt and Mariinsky Theatre. The staff is also nice.
