This b&b was great. Newly renovated and clean. The rooms were comfortable and quite large. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. Onsite desktop and wifi was an asset. Very reasonable prices. Breakfast was included and we made very good use of the well-equipped kitchen to cook for ourselves, though we and another couple that we were traveling with were the only occupants. Transportation to the airport was also very smooth, but the driver asked us for more than was quoted to us, so be aware. The only draw back I can think of was that it was a challenge to find the place on foot, and the directions that we were provided with weren't very clear. But - it was within short walking distance to the Moscow train station, which was very convenient. I would recommend this b&b wholeheartedly.

Clean, cozy rooms, possibility cook by yourself and breakfast included in the price which is really reasonable. Internet access too, and near enough center to be comfortable. Staff is very helpful!

Had a great stay in St Petersburg!
Sovetskaya BnB was everything we expected: clean, good location, amazing personalised service, great facilities...
Transportation options were great too from the house.
We also liked the way that is run and the sensation of being at your own place but in a different city.

This hotel is a real find. It has a very well-equipped kitchen and is located next door to a small supermarket, across the street from a local restaurant with long hours and a menu in English, and one block from several bus lines that run all the way up Nevsky Prospect to the Hermitage. The staff were very helpful in assisting me with my changing travel plans, and they also offer an efficient airport pick-up and drop-off service for an additional charge. There is an in-room safe. The breakfast is generous, and they really think about the practical needs of the traveler. My one concern was that for the first few nights, the only other guest was a single older man who kept trying to socialize with me, sometimes late at night. He was courteous and there was never a problem, but at times I felt unsafe because I was aware of being physically isolated with a man I did not know. I am not sure what the B & B could have done to remedy this, however.

Room Tip: Book early and be flexible.

Very clean and modern apartment, with large rooms. Relaxed atmosphere with internet access and help yourself breakfast. Not the best part of town, but a 5-10 mins walk to Nevsky - so a good position. I would stay again if required accommodation in St Petes and would recommened to others.

Excellent location - near train and metro stations, on bus route to major attractions, and next to a grocery store. The design of the B & B is practical and comfortable - loved the flexibility of DIY breakfast, yet it manages to feel homey, not sterile. Non-smoking and very clean facilities. Delighted to find decent linens and towels, and comfortable mattresses. Excellent customer service when booking and making arrangements. I will definitely try to stay here on my next visit!
