I could find only two positive moments: cooperative and friendly staff at the reception, who is eager to solve your problems, and reasonably good breakfast (though for this amount of money I could have had a much better one in a nearby restaurant). The rest is awful: standard room has an old soviet style furniture and windows, which do not... More

Dear Guest! Thank you for your comments about our hotel. I was really happy that you’ve appreciated the work of our receptionists and found that breakfast was good.

Clean rooms, quiet, possibly a bit away from main attractions, but transport by bus or metro is excellent and easy once you get your bearings. Receptionist don't speak much English, which makes it difficult. If you purchase tickets for a show, they overcharge you a lot. Best to go and buy tickets yourself Good breakfast buffet.

Nice is the word... it doesn't reach a Great, or Fantastic level, but it's OK. The room is nice, the breakfast is quite Russian... fried and boiled things, limited fresh fruit. The best thing regarding breakfast is that it is at the 9th floor and the view is really good :-)

We stayed as part of a group tour 6th to 10th June 2016. The hotel is in a backstreet half an hour's walk south of St Isaac's Cathedral.

After travelling around Scandinavia we (a group of 8) wondered how we would find our accommodation in Russia. We were not disappointed. Spacious rooms, enough room for our well travelled suitcases. Bathrooms well appointed and reasonably roomy. Clean and tidy, with courteous staff. Beds turned down each evening. Close to some city tourist sites. View from restaurant a knockout.
