Stayed there for 2 nights on a ferry cruise from Helsinki. Booked via booking.com after reading all guest reviews and being anxious about service, cleanliness and security most of all and also adhering to our budget. What a wonderful place to stay for the price! My husband and I shared a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with our adult son. The whole space was so well designed, extremely spacious, quality materials used throughout and every surface was finished to the highest standard. The furniture was well chosen modern with designer edge, I loved comfortable leather and suede beds, leather recliner chair, dark wood wardrobes and other units, the lighting was well appointed with fresh modern fittings. The soft furnishings felt luxurious and fresh and enhanced the rooms. Large flatscreen TV in every room with selection of channels in every language incl Chinese and perfectly working high speed WiFi internet connection helped us feel at home. The attention to detail showed in everything: good quality light blocking curtains, modern quiet air conditioning and adjustable heating in perfect working order, high quality spotless and shiny bathroom fixtures and rain shower in a huge enclosure, safe in wardrobe, perfectly appointed kitchen with good lighting, dishwasher and everything you need incl wine and water glasses, cleaning cloth, brush, scourer, Fairy liquid, paper towels etc. You can see and appreciate how much thought and care was put into arranging this accommodation for you, makes you feel special. The apartment is also wheelchair users friendly. The cleanliness throughout was exemplary. The bathrobes and slippers and complimentary water. We were not disturbed by any noise which is an issue in most hotels and had wonderful night sleep. We felt very secure in the hotel: 24 h security guard downstairs, lift operated by your room key card, chain and lock on the room door, windows open in two positions but are fitted with restrainers. The staff at reception spoke excellent English and were most welcoming and happy to assist. The plentiful and varied breakfast was served in spacious welcoming room and we loved it. Porridge, kashi, sausages, individual omellettes, boiled eggs, juices, fresh bread, toast, jams, coffee/tea from machine (also available all day long free). The staff in breakfast room did not speak English but was most helpful, friendly and courteous assisting with coffee macine, replenishing food and clearing up. The hotel's location worked very well for us: right mext door to Metro station and 4 stops to the centre. We found public transport working well, all signs were in Russian and English, ticket machines at every station with instructions and options in English, conductors and card scanning devices on buses and trolleybuses (ecologically clean elecrtic buses). So exploring the city was easy even being 4 stops from the centre! The only thing I wish for is clear signs and dedicated path leading to the entrance of the hotel. The hotel is in the same huge building as Holiday Inn which entrance you see from the street and you can get to Staybridge hotel through Holiday Inn, only it takes ages. To get to the entrance you need to go around the Holiday Inn complex, through the covered car park, to the rear of the building. It is not signposted and people tend to spend some time looking for it. In conclusion: we were not aware of Staybridge brand before, but it is obviously a concept that works well for our family, so I am going to seek it out on my travels from now on.
