Our first contact through email was quick, orderly and very informative. We booked with no problem using a letter of authorization for our credit card charge as well as confirming that they would take care of of our Visa invitations for 700 RUR per person. When we arrived, we were somewhat thrown off because the building is undergoing renovation so the front door was not as expected and the entry stairs had not been renovated. There is no lift or elevator to the small hotel but the staff would gladly help you with the luggage. On the second floor however we were met by the most gracious staff, offered drinks, and shown our nice size rooms. We were in Quarenghi, a very nice room with a large bath. It is located on the courtyard side of the building and at the time that side of the building was being renovated. We were never there during the daytime so were never bothered by any noise from the renovation. I believe the names of the rooms are all of Italian architects from the 18th and 19th centuries that built many of the palaces in St. Petersburg. The breakfasts were very nice and casually served which we enjoyed - everything from granola, to yogurt, fruit and hot breakfast cooked to order. The staff was very attentive and enjoyed hearing of our adventures. This is a very small hotel and is not prepared for room service - it could be considered more like a very nice bed and Breakfast type accomodation. Another big plus is location, location, location. Very central and an easy walk to many sights. I would recommend to those who don't need a large hotel, restaurant, business center but desire a personal interaction with wonderful staff. Thank you all - we loved St. Petersburg.
