“Awesome location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Room found clean and in goo condition.
Breakfast is simple but very good! If you are looking for a good price and good location this is your place. Just in the middle of the touristic places...

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room facing the canal ;)

High level of hospitality. Clean and comfortable.
Simple redesign of this amazing old building.
The coffee for breakfast is real.
A georgian cousine near by : " Hochu Harcho". Highly recommended too.
Very useful geo location.

I arrived to the hotel on motorbike, and the parking place was arranged in the inner court behind gates. Receptionists spoke good english, and they were very friendly. The reception/lobby bar was not big, but there is no need to stay there long time. Laundry worked well, and rooms were clean. There is a hostel and an Ukrainian restaurant in same building. The underground station is about 100 m from the hotel, and the beautiful park of Yusupov is within a walk distance. No noisy traffic in the nights, very good place to stay. Breakfast buffet OK. Only problem was that I found the motorbike fallen down on last morning, somebody had moved it with bad results, but that is out of hotel's control I believe. Extra points to an opportunity to stay in the very same house where Nikolai Gogol has lived.

Dear Guests,
Thank you very much for your feedback. We appreciate your kind words about our Hotel. It is great that you liked our value, location, clean rooms and quality of our staff. We are really sorry that you found your motobike fallen. I suppose it was an exception. 2 month ago we made the contract with the secure parking. It is 5-7 min away from the Hotel, but your car\moto will be safe. Please come again and enjoy your stay!

Alekseeva Olga

The hotel's location is awesome, smiling faced personnel, clean rooms, helpful receptionists 7/24 !!! I was in St.Petersburg for business purposes and chosed Gogol and only stayed 1 day. But it was enough to understand the approach and their perspective. Good hotel, try it that's all I may tell. Only minus part wass minibar. It is empty and should be filled with something...

Room Tip: Pick a room with canal view

Nice location with reasonable place for car too. Near chanal ,near sadovan ulitsa.first experience like always that this hotel before just flat for living...corridors a little bad condition they had lift but very small and between floors.rooms were quite clean but without any decoration...very simple.reception floor 1 and half floor,its a little comlicated for visitors with big luggages but we managed.No restaurant and so called bar operated with receptionist..?!not very interresting.opposite many reastaurant,its not a problem and also little walking helps body after that.breakfast for long time quite ok...not special but ok.

Room Tip: I think all rooms ok because this is silent place,though its near sadovaja.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your valuable comments. We are trying our best to keep up the quality of the services provided. We are glad that you liked our location, breakfast and rooms.

As for the poor corridors design we are working on it and plannning to create a new decoration. And I hope we can welcome you back some day and that next time you stay with us your experience will be totally positive.
