My husband and I just spent 6 nights and were impressed with the clean and tidy room and with the helpful staff. My only complaint is that our 5th floor room was filled with cooking odors both early evening and early morning and that was really unpleasant.

I had a nice and pleasant stay in this good quality hotel. The main thing is that the staff were very helpful, and were very good at helping me or answering questions whilst I was there. They were also very helpful before my stay with the visa support documents... The area is quiet, just round the corner from a local... More

Taxi fares are so cheap that the distance is unimportant. I used Uber and got to the Main Street (Nevsky) for €2. Hotel is clean, breakfast is decent. I can't comment about the price because I came with a group as part of a package. Like any hotel in a city you can find things in the neighborhood- small supermarkets,... More

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).

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 :-)
