This was our first trip to Saint Petersburg, and it was not so easy to find a good place to stay - Hotel are too expensive (good one we used to costs 160+ EUR/night, and to rent a private flat was too risky). First we have booked the private appartment over piterstay.ru (kvartirent.ru) - but they have cancelled our reservation without any expanations 2 weeks before our arrival. So we have tried the mini-hotel Pride. Finally that was the best choice - this is actually what is called "Pension" in Europe. The owner - Andrey Koshkin - really takes care about his guests: picks you up in the airport at 20EUR, makes an excellent breakfast (included in the price), rooms are very clean (cleaning every day), renovation is pretty fresh and they only have 6 rooms. Andrey has invested a lot in the security in this mini-hotel: private security service in the house which control all the territory by video. Entrance area is nice - they have decorated the entrance area together with a painter who lives in the last floor in this house. Andrey is a typical Saint Petersburg personality with "big russian soul", every morning you really do not want to leave the breakfast room because of so nice "morning talk" with him. During the day you can have some tea or coffee free of charge - even some cookies are there. Andrey can really give you excellent advice about what to do in the city and what is the most clever way to do that. The location is just behind the magnificient Kazan Cathedral which is in the middle of Nevsky Prospect - 10 minutes walk to the metro, 15 minutes to Hermitage and Summer Gardens. In the same time the place is very quiet - not so loud than Nevsky itself. We were really happy to be there,- it was like "beeing at home" and you really experience this magnificent city better this way. So this is the excellent place to stay for quiet families or quiet travellers. Young loud party guests are not welcomed there.
