I really struggled to find accomadation in St Petersburg on the budget i had set myself. I Found this hotel and took a chance as there were no reviews and very little info on the internet about it. But the few photo's i had found looked ok.
When we arrived at the hotel we were asked if we wanted a double or twin room. We asked for a Double but ended up with a twin. We decided against mentioning it, as perhaps they were trying to tell us something about being an unmarried couple! The room was very basic but also very clean and the shower was a good one!
Health and safety in the room wouldn't pass uk standards but if you don't mind getting your foot chipped on a dodgy floor, you'll be fine. It all adds to the experience of being in Russia.
Our room was on the 4th floor and with no lift it was a struggle chasing the woman up the stairs who showed us to our room.
If you look for a peaceful nights sleep this hotel was very quite.
Breakfast which was included was very basic, Toast, cheese and ham. Cereal and some biscuits. but we made do and there was a tea/coffee/water machine to use. However it greatly depended on the day as somedays the breakfast had dissapeared before we had a chance although most of the time someone would come along and refil things eventually.
Location was fantastic right in the heart of everything and we could walk every where around the city from it. Location is deffinately this hotels strong point.
The staff were very helpful and dispite the language barrier tired to help us. They even arranged a taxi to and from the airport. For a lot cheaper than if we had got one when we turned up. I deffinately recommend booking your taxi in advance.
It certainly wasn't luxuary but was clean and comfortable and it gave us a bed to stay on. IF you like luxuarys this might not be the place but in terms of location and budget accomedation i think we did well.
