I have stayed here a few times and have never had a bad experience. Since it is a boutique hotel, all of the rooms are unique to each other, but all of them were very clean and comfortable. In some rooms, the hot/cold water is reversed, which is a minor quirk. The location is convenient for walking to the parks,... More

If you are looking for a hotel downtown St. Pete close to everything this is the place. We were very impressed the price it was very affordable. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. We parked in the garage and only paid $3.00. The staff was wonderful.

Cute, charming restored boutique hotel. Rooms are smaller and minimal but very nicely designed and clean. Our room was at the end of the hall so it was really quiet and cozy. Bed was SUPER comfy. Would definitely stay again, great location!!

Unique, stylish rooms, excellent service, and you cannot get a better location. Stayed here four times in two months and every room was consistently clean and comfortable, with friendly, helpful staff at the desk and the cleaning people. Looking forward to coming back to St Pete and staying here again!

Small, but well organized rooms, clean and friendly staff. Connected to terrific Tapas bar and close to everything. I was there for the St Petersburg Boat Show, which is only a block from this property. And the price, did I mention the great price.

Clean, nice staff, good bed, good shower, good breakfast, walking distance from pier, restaurants en Dali museum (which you must see!) and for $5,- a day parking card, drive in and out. We stayed an extra night because everything was so good (and St. Pete's worth another day)

Location excellent. Providing a parking card for parking garage is a definite plus as parking in St. Petersburg is a pain. Clean and staff was cordial and helpful. Room is small and dated. Needs two chairs, not one, two bedside lights, newer pillows (present ones are thin and flat) and a clock. Would appreciate a directory for tv channels. A/C... More
