Reviewed January 4, 2013

As we were going in the midst of winter, we wanted something very central in the historic heart and this decision really paid off since, unusually it seems, it was about - 22 for most of our stay! The hotel is excellently and centrally located just off the pretty river Moyki. The Church of the Spilled Blood is about 3 minutes walk away and you can see it's spires from the hotel restuarant. As other people have noted, the Hermitage and Nevsky Prospect are also within 10-15 mins walk as is Peter and Paul Fortress. Despite the extreme cold, we were close enough to all the main sites for us to walk it (and therefore close enough to nip back to the Hotel if we needed to warm up!). The room and en suite bathroom were very clean, sufficiently spacious and very comfortable - things that should be fairly standard but are not always, so worth commenting on we thought. The only odd thing was that we could not get sound on our TV for any English language channels (e.g. BBC news) but only for Russian ones. We meant to ask the Hotel about this (possibly it's a simple remote control issue) but never got round to it - we weren't there to watch TV anyway. The room was generally quiet. The hotel itself is in a blissfully quiet spot despite being so central. The only noise we heard seemed to filter through from the hotel restaurant one night (it or the kitchen was directly below our room we think) but the noise was limited and didn't disturb us. The staff are friendly and speak excellent English. This was very useful as we speak no Russian and we would otherwise have struggled to book restaurants and our trip to a banya etc. We booked taxi airport transfers via the hotel and each time the driver was friendly and professional and charged only what the hotel had warned us he'd charge - though we tipped our arrival transfer driver as he effectively gave us a narrated tour of the city on the way to the hotel (a lovely, positive start to the trip). We didn't try the hotel breakfast so can't comment on that. It was extra and there are so many nice little cafes around that we preferred to just get out exploring and find our own places to eat. We did have lunch in the restaurant on our last day and were happy with our Borsh and the excellent views from the cafe. We stayed for 7 nights (longer than needed for most city breaks in summer but it being frigidly cold outside and there being limited daylight hours we found that this worked out perfectly - we could always have used any spare days to visit some of the palaces outside the city). We got the room on a 'long stay/seasonal' discount rate, which helped as it was a bit outside our normal price range. We felt that we'd picked the perfect hotel for us and if we are ever back in St Petersburg, we would happily stay there again.

Hotel has very good location within 10 to 15 minutes of Hermitage and Nevsky Prospekt. Various buses on Nevsky Prospekt if you want to go to Mariinsky Theatre, etc. Room is clean and ours was quiet. Various banks and pharmacies and some restaurants close to the hotel.

Staff is not knowledgeable about the area. For example, asked for the closest supermarket and Reception said no supermarkets in area and only place we could but anything was in a small variety store which sold mainly liquor. That small store was the closest, but a couple of minutes farther along the street that led to the Nevsky Prospekt was a store from a big chain in Russia (has fruits and vegetables on the outside) with a much better selection of cheeses, etc. Not more than 7 to 8 minutes from hotel, and even closer were other variety stores with much better selection than the one closest they pointed us to.

Breakfast was extra but it was as good value as anything else we tried in the area. Ate in restaurant for dinner once and reasonably good food reasonably priced. Room for two had two small shelves and no safety deposit box. Though did have a small fridge (useful in Russia as have to buy water for drinking and brushing teeth) and modern small bathroom. . Housekeeping did not seem to understand they should remove dirty drinking glasses and supply fresh glasses. This may be a Russian issue but our hotel in Moscow had fine housekeeping.

No one to help you with luggage but our luggage was on wheels and they had an elevator so not a problem for us. Could be a problem for others. We had ordered a taxi through the hotel to pick us up at train station, was told it would be 500 euros, but driver said it was 600 euros. When we asked about this at hotel, told up up to taxi driver. Taxis are an issue in Russia and we generally avoided them but we did think if we ordered the taxi through the hotel, we would only be charged what we had agreed to. The hotel did make a mistake in our bill but they discovered the error and corrected it on their own volition which is to their credit.

Location is excellent, hotel is clean and as long as people know what they are getting, good value if you book through Bookings.com or another discount hotel facility. For the rack rate, overpriced but with the discount good value.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front in theory have a view of Church of Spilled Blood but were hoardings in front when...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a very comfortable hotel. The staff were very helpful and spoke great English, which helped a lot. The room was comfortable and roomy and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was also clean. The hotel had a restaurant on the top floor, which was very handy after a full days touring. The hotel also had free Wi-Fi which was a great asset. It's location was also great as it was in walking distance of the Hermitage and the Nevsky Prospekt. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Saint Petersburg

All in all it was a very pleasant stay! just two critic points: the mattress was really old and quite saggy. but the hotel promissed to change it after my critic. the other critic point is that I could hear almost everything my neighbor was telling on the phone. I don't know weather it was was between every room because between my and the neighbor room was a door. it seemed like two rooms belonging together.
But how I wrote at the beginning: very nice stay! excelent place in the center of St. Petersburg! and a just loveley breakfast! the hotel staff is helpful and friendly. I would come back anytime!

After a long time's search on the internet we at last decided to book our stay at the "3mostA". We paid in advance and got quite a discount. The young staff talks english - but not everybody fluintly. But who does in this city. Staff is friendly and tries to do their best, to make the stay comfortable. cleaning was excellent - the cleaning lady even had the time to place the teddy of our child in our fresh-made-beds. Everything was just fine. The room had a refrigerator (do not drink the water in St. Pete). The hotel as an elevator. There is a panorama deck on the roof where you can go (after borrowing the key). Breakfast is not at it's best - but you can choose to go somewhere else. So we did. Tried breakfast oncce and it's eatable, but not very various. All in all a good place to stay and I would sure recommende it to everyone I know as a good hotel considering the price.

Just returned from this hotel where we stopped for 4 nights. the location is very central and first class, within walking distance of the most of the major tourist attractions. the only time we needed a taxi was to and from the airport. this was arranged by the hotel and was 1200 rouble per journey (approx' £24). the staff were extremely helpful with every request made before and during our stay. we stayed in the basic room and although not massive it was very comfortable, clean and modern. I'm fairly sure you would struggle to find a hotel of this standard and location for the same price elsewhere. we were on a room only basis. we tried the breakfast on our first morning at 300 roubles (approx' £6.50) but were not over impressed. for that reason we didn't eat in the hotel again, so it wouldn't be fair to comment on the cuisine. BUT PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS PUT YOU OFF STAYING AT THIS HOTEL. THE LOCATION AND STAFF ARE FIRST CLASS. If we visit St Petersburg again we would stay here again. Getting around was easy, most places are in walking distance but if you want to venture further afield the metro and trolley buses are fine and cheap and easy to use.

Room Tip: if you like plenty of space in your room you may find the basic room a little small. i would suggest...

Lovely little hotel right on the canal and with a view onto the spectacular Church of Spilled Blood. Room was spacious and spotless, breakfast had a good choice of items and served until late. Reception staff were charming, very helpful and spoke excellent English. Do use their airport transfer service, it is good value and takes all the hassle of getting around in a new place
