“Very comfortable hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We had a lovely room overlooking the frozen river. I have nothing negative to say about this place. Decor is a bit shocking at first but it works!
Room was brilliant and bed extremely comfortable.
The staff were very friendly and helpful
We ate in the restaurant after getting back later than we planned on last night, The food was a very pleasant surprise, Italian dishes with very interesting twists from the chef.
Breakfast was really good and lasted us all day as we walked around the city. Funny watching some breakfasters getting stuck in to the sparkling wine! Couldn't face it myself. Maybe next time!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We booked a one week reservation for a superior room with a river view with hotels.com on the phone. Our confirmation matched our reservation. When we arrived after a long and exhausting 12 hour flight, the front desk assigned us a small, dark room with an interior view. We presented our reservation confirmation to the front desk people who seemed confused. First they told us we would have to pay more for a superior room w/ river view and they even told us the increased price per night. Again, we referred back to our confirmation. After a while, a tall blonde named Natalia Chernyshova came out and told us she had called up hotels.com and "spoke with the agent with whom we made our reservation' who "remembered our conversation" and told us we did not reserve a river view - She then told us there are no superior rooms with river views in the hotel, only 2 story rooms which she would be happy to let us upgrade to! . All of this was very disturbing to say the least, did Natalia think we would not realize she was lying? Welcome to Russia! In the end we were assigned a decent room without a river view which looked onto another building across the street. Needless to say, we were very disappointed in the way this was handled.

Besides the above, we found the rest of the English speaking staff to be helpful and prompt. The room was clean and the sheets and towels changed daily. Hot water in the shower was immediate except for Friday morning where it was only luke warm. When we checked out, we were charged for the full mini bar. Since we had not used anything from the mini bar (we had taken out the drinks and put them to the side of the fridge so we could keep our own drinks cold) we were asked to write a statement saying such and had to sign it. I guess old habits die hard, so to speak.
The hotel is in a very good location near St Isaac's Square which is central for tourists. About a 15 minute walk to anywhere you might want to go: Hermitage, Marinsky Theatre, Chorale Synagogue, Nevsky Prospect. The decor is "Russian Modern" which means a bit too much color all around, however, we knew that going in and since we liked the location and the free wifi(which worked very well) we decided to try this hotel. St Petersburg is an amazing city filled with beautiful buildings and palaces of the past. Note, DO NOT drink the water and brush teeth with bottle water (supplied by hotel) only!
Enjoy your trip!

Room Tip: Not sure what to say about that, please refer to above!

When you stay somewhere that offer you all the comforts of home where do you start? I must start by saying that in all my travels I probably have never stayed in a more comfortable hotel room. The rooms are gorgeous and so well appointed. If I were to design a room that I would want to spend all my time this would be it. Everything works the way it is supposed to, and as it should. And it is so quiet and peaceful, with very comfortable beds. For all the times we spent outside reveling in what St Petersburg offers, we felt like we would have been equally comfortable in our room. The staff is great, just great. Anything you ask they will seek to fulfill and just truly some very nice people who want you to enjoy their hotel and city. This hotel is charming beyond what we can say here. We had the most wonderful experience and were we to be back it would most certainly be with them again.We're so delighted to have found it.

Room Tip: I could not imagine one that would not be as good as the others.

For starters, a good location on a canal only a few minutes (8-10) away from the main sites (Hermitage, St Isaacs, Nevsky Prospect). The rooms are a bit kitchy in terms of color, but that's the idea, I guess, and any overexposure to fuchsia you might have to suffer through is more than offset by the comfortable king size bed, soft pillows and plush towels (the big 3 for me!). Free bottled water is another great touch. Service is terrific, including a helpful, English speaking concierge, as well as a samovar of hot cider that sits gurgling in the lobby on cold afternoons.

All in all, a great St Pete find and well worth its reasonable price. A gem.

I was really impressed by this hotel. Our room and bathroom were spacious and immaculately clean; the bed was very comfortable. The staff is great and there are complimentary bottles of water in the room. Also, there are comfy bathrobes and slippers in the bathroom. The hotel is centrally located -- just a 10-15 min. walk to the Hermitage and a 5 min. walk to the main street. It's also very close to two metro stations and it's 20 min. away (by metro) from the Sapsan train station.
The breakfast is overpriced, but there are plenty of good places to eat in a close proximity to the hotel.

Room Tip: Each room has a different color scheme. If you ask, they may let you choose the colors of your room.

This excellent boutique hotel a short walk away from St Petersburg's main sites was a welcome departure from the at times cold soviet block hotels of Moscow. The staff was fantastic, and the rooms were immaculate. There were heated bathroom floors, comfortable beds, satellite TV, heat, and a tech savvy lighting system (which took a little bit of time to master). The hotel is set on a quiet street on the Moika River within walking distance to all of the top attractions of St Petersburg. You aren't far from anything, and restaurants are right around the corner. The hotel is charming at 115 UD Dollars a night (for 2 twin beds) it was a steal. I was a little hesitant to stay here at first because the pictures on the website and online looked a little Willy Wonka-esque but it was actually a welcome pop of culture to my Russian adventure.

I traveled to St. Petersburg for the first time this December, and I was quite impressed by this hotel. A few highlights: most of the staff speak English, creative/funky decor that stands out from the average hotel, large, comfortable beds, free bottled water and tea/coffee, heated tiles in the bathroom, a turn-down service at night, great location by the Moika and just a few minutes walk from St. Isaac's Cathedral and Mariinsky Theater.

The location is very quiet and peaceful, and I liked that about it. However, those looking to be closer to the heart of Nevsky Prospekt should know that it's about a 10-15 minute walk away. The only problems we had were with our heat (the fan kept going on and off in the night, which might be troublesome for a light sleeper) and the shower, which was slow to drain and actually flooded the bathroom a bit. Besides that, it was a perfect stay, and I would HIGHLY recommend this new hotel for those who are looking for an affordable, beautiful and peaceful place to stay. What a great time!
