“A cozy, comfortable and well situated Hotel in St-Petersburg.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is our home away from in St-Petersburg... Within walking distance of the Nevsky Prospect, the most famous thoroughfare in St-Petersburg, maybe even in Russia. The rooms are cozy and have a lot of charm, while at the same time being extremely comfortable. From what I understand, this hotel was constructed in an historic building, and thus has a lot of charm and flair, while at the same time providing all the comforts of modernity one could wish for.

The staff is super-friendly and very helpful. They provide everything needed for a top-notch stay, even some pluggable devices that magically seem to chase any mosquito hanging about... Make sure to take advantage of the provided breakfast, which is always fresh and delicious, and quite handy before a day walking through this beautiful city. Also important, the train station and a few metro stations are close by, making transportation through the city a breeze.

Highly recommended, we will definitely be back...

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the last floor, where you'll enjoy a gorgeous view of the city through the sky...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The hotel is well located close to the bus stop. Our room was small, but clean and confortable. Getting to the room from the lobby was very tricky the first time (stairs, elevators, doors, passages), but at the end we loved it!! The breakfast was good, enough to full you all morning. The staff was perfect, friendly and ready to help.What I love the most about this hotel is the feeling this building gives you: Get back to soviet era, seeing how the old constructions were, its the most fascinating thing.

We had chosen this hotel based on location, price and good TA reviews. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The rooms and common areas are all clean and nicely kept. Breakfast is good, every morning 1 or 2 warm dishes. Rooms vary in size, ours was on the small side, but adequate.
What impressed us most was the helpfulness and efficiency of the reception staff. At busy hours there were three english-speaking persons on duty, all eager to assist us with whatever question we had, a level of service rarely found in Western Europe.
We had in advance found from the hotel web site that trolley buses 7 and 11 would bring us from Suvorovskiy Prospekt to the historic heart of St. Petersburg. Unfortunately the week-end we were there the lower part of Nevsky Prospekt was getting a new coat of asphalt and closed to all traffic, Consequently the trolley buses only ran as far as Nevsky east of Vosstaniya. This was an inconvenience that caused us some problems, but nothing we can blame the hotel for.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back yard(s) are very quiet.

A short cab-ride from the main station, this is a perfect hotel for sight seeing in St Peters burg.A few steps away is the bus-stop from where you can catch a bus to most of the main attractions in town. The rooms though small are clean and well maintained for the reasonable price they charge. The front desk staff is very helpful specially Natasha, who even lent me 100 Rbls cash to pay the cab! She was always willing to bring out a map and orient us exactly how to get to the important sights.
Cafe Vera was the icing on the cake. We always have a problem with food, specially in Eastern Europe because we are strict vegetarians, But this place even had a choice of grilled vegetables and delicious rice, which was perfect for dinner, after a whole day of roaming around. It was such a relief, to come and have a great meal and relax instead of going hunting for food after a long day of sight-seeing. I highly recommend this place if you happen to be in St Petersburg.

Room Tip: I did see some bigger rooms. Perhaps they can be requested.

Being on a short two-days business trip in St. Petersburg in August 2013,
I had excellent dining experience at Cafe Vera with my business partners.
- assorted meats salad "Sitni" (" Satisfying" :))
- eggplants with red/yellow/green peppers
- beef stroganoff with chanterelles (simply delicious!!!)
Generous portions, cozy atmosphere, nice decor, reasonably priced.
Great option for the quiet/ small group business dinner in the heart of St. Petersburg.
