First of all, I don't know what Sven A is talking about, the rooms aren't palatial, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with them. The water is hot, the rooms are clean, and warm - and the price is very reasonable, and the location exceptional. What more do you want? My answer would normally be nothing, but when I was in Saint Petersburg recently the girls working here went above and beyond to help me.
My passport was stolen while I was in Russia. The girls helped me by taking a statement in English, and translating it into Russian character so that when I arrived at the Police station I simply had to hand it over. They organised taxis, let me use the Internet, printer - put through phone calls, took down my mobile number and kept in touch with me throughout the whole crisis.
They also let us eat breakfast at 11am, despite the fact that it was supposed to finish at nine. They were more than happy to let reopen the breakfast set up for two hungover English lad, and they never looked unhappy about it.
Cannot recommend highly enough. Thanks again to the staff.
The Passport-less Liverpool fan!
PS Made it home safely!
