Tucked away in a typical St Petersburg courtyard, it is a small challenge to find it. But asking the very Russian, no-english speaking neighbours can actually be your first contact with the friendly inhabitants of St Petersburg. The location is great, literally a block away from the grand, but overpriced Nevsky Prospekt. Once you're in, you get the key and...

This place is totally unprofessional. We made a booking online and received a confirmation email from the owner. We arrived to find no sign to indicate that we were at the right location and not even a doorbell to ring. Eventually we were let in by one of the building's other tenants and went upstairs and knocked on the door....

Dear jhnmcc, I have already written to you to apologize for the one-off failure in our booking system (and, it has to be said, communications) that led to us being unable to accommodate you on this night in June. I am sorry that I was not there to deal with this situation in person; I think that in that case...

We really fall in love with this place. If you want to feel yourself at friend's home and to feel the real atmosphere of this unusual city - it's the great choice! There are only 4 spacious rooms with en suite bathrooms, nicely decorated and very cosy. Don't expect smth great from breakfast, just usual yoghurt, muesli, toasts and jam....

First of all good luck finding the place. There are no signs posted and when you do figure it out it's behind a heavy steel door up a crumbling stoop then 3 stories of stairs in a dark, smokey corridor. Don't look at the electrical connections above the entrance way or as you go up the stairs. I'm sure they...

Exquisite and, simultaneously, warm, in both meanings, place. Excellent to start knowing and experiencing St. Petersburg - and loving the city, due to this very Old Church Courtyard!

As I travel to St Petersurg often I want to stay in a place where I can feel at home. With only 4 rooms and informal service from friendly and helpful staff it doens't feel like a hotel. The spacious rooms are decorated with style and taste. (Mix of Russian and English style). It's very quiet at night which is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our guesthouse in the centre of St Petersburg is a former priest's apartment which we have restored and gently adapted to give a carefully balanced mix of private and public space. All rooms have their own distinctive character and large bathrooms (some with windows). Breakfast is free, as are coffee and tea at any time and a very fast Wi-Fi connection. We try to provide our guests with any help they may need. ... more   less
