“Overbooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Didn't sleep in this hotel, but dealt with service.

It turned out I was overbooked, the travel agencye returned my money quickly + some extra for inconvenience. What was exceptional in this hotel is that lady at reception found me an alternative (nice hotel on nevsky) on that crowded time. The price was the same, unfortunately it was only for 1 night, so next day she found me another hotel for the rest of my stay.

The hotel itself looks nice. I'd spend there a night if I could.

This small hotel is situated on a main road a short walk from the Winter Palace and the Admirlteskaya metro station. It is on the second floor of a residential building. The room are clean, a reasonable size with a hairdryer, air conditioning but lacked enough storage for two of us. The bedding was odd with the duvet smaller than the width of the bed.

Free wifi was available but this was very slow. The staff spoke some basic English and were helpful.

The breakfast room was very small with only three tables. The breakfast selection was limited and on one occasion we noticed some of the bread was mouldy. Breakfast is not available until 8am, which may be a bit late if you have a full days site seeing. Water, tea and coffee is available in the breakfast room the water ran out on the day we arrived and hadn't been replaced when we checked out 4 days later. This was disappointing as the advice is not to drink the tap water, so we ended up buying our own each day.

Overall, a very good value for money hotel in a safe, central location. I would stay there on my next trip to St Petersburg.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back to avoid the noise from the main road.

Only 5 rooms at the second floor of an apartment building, reception 24 hours, breakfast included (simple but with all you need), much appreciated free coffee and tea all day long till 11pm, courteous and helpful receptionists, clean, comfortable beds, bathrobes and slippers (not expected for a 3star property), free extrabed for our children, large bathroom.
It's ideal if you come like us with 72hrs visa free program. From the peterline shuttle bus stop it's only 300m. Another 300m to the Hermitage. Minimarket 24hrs downstairs and also a couple of nice russian restaurants in the same street. And the best price in the area.
Thank you.

Having stayed two 5 star, two boutique hotel and many others, Solo is simply a good package of service. 5 minute to hermitage museum on foot, markets, restaurants all around. The first impression for hotels exterior may not be good but belive me it is ok. The Rooms are big enough, clean enough, bed and pillow comfortable, no tobacco smell, a very small elevator but usefull. Private smoking area....trust me it is not easy to find them all in one hotel in St Petersburg...we stayed 5 nights, the bathroom is ok, clean and hot water......so don't think twice

This B and B type accomodation is all about location and price. Located only a few hundred meters away from the Hermitage and on the street which runs into the Admiralty Gardens, it is perfectly located a block away from Nevsky Prospect. We found everything we needed in the area, with many restaruants, a great bakery, and TWO 24 hour food markets in the same block.
The hotel itself is located on two floors of an old building, and the rooms are clean, neat and have some charm with the beautifull high ceilings. Rooms are cleaned daily and towels rerplaced. The English speaking staff is very helpful about making arrangements.
The only draw-back were a merely adequate breakfast and the very messy halls and stairways which are under constructioni.
All in all, we were very pleased with our one week stay and found good value for money.
