Well-equipped, clean and spacious rooms in a pleasant residential area. The rooms are laid out like a small studio apartment. Comfortable furniture and bed and free WiFi. The location is perfect for those who don't want to be in the central tourist area near the Hermitage. Two blocks from Metro, which is easy to use, several nice cafes with English menus, some attractions and shopping in walking distance. Hotel staff doesn't have much English, but very helpful. I arrived with a bad cold and was stayed in the room for much of the day; the receptionist, Svetlana, was kindness itself. She gave me cold medicine and made sure I wasn't disturbed. I felt the service was as caring and gracious as a four star hotel. Highly recommend to those who want a different experience than a typical tourist hotel.
