We were extremely happy with out stay. The staff was great--we are not Russian speaking. The location is close to the metro and within walking distance of the main tourist attractions. If you are in Moscow, visit the Patriotic Museum in Pobedy Park. There is a diorama of the Second World War that is centered on the area where the... More

I wasn't impressed at the arrival to this hotel: you need to press a buzzer to be let in, go up few floors on stairs in a building that looks abandoned and shady. But once you make it into the hotel floor, it's fine. The vibe is a bit granny, but things are clean and tidy. My beef with it... More

It provides a good, simple, clean room in an excellent location at a reasonable price. Our room was a facing the road and canal, but there were no problems with noise. The... More

Very interesting situation near Nevskiy prospekt and metro station, not so far from Ermitage. Old immeuble charming and calm. The hotel is on the third floor without lift, surprising when you come from the airport with a heavy bagage. Good advises for turism from the personnel, they advised us for a frenchspeaking guide very excellent and not so expensive. But... More

I just come to the place. The only bad thing is for people with huge bags or with a problem with climbing on the ladders for 4-5 floor. It is a small mini hotel situated very close to the most interesting touristic points of Saint Petersburg. Then I booked the room I wasn't sure I made a right choice because... More
