“Clean hotel, helpful staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We stayed here for 3 days. Before our arrival, Vikas, from reservation department was very helpful in sorting out our invitation letter and visa via email. The hotel itself is beside the main road. It is about 100-200 meters from the nearest metro station. Our room was cozy, minimalist, modern and clean. The breakfast is in the adjoining bar. Food was okay and filling but nothing to shout home about. There are plenty of restaurant around the area should one wants to have dinner outside. Overall, I would be happy to recommend this hotel.

Stayed there in dbl room during our this summer's team-building party.
Very good, not noisy and interesting place, good breakfast, pleasant receptionists.
The only problem - you cann't get in, if you left the cafe (which is out of Vasil'evskiy island) after midnight.

Not really a bad hotel, but nothing there to recommend. Room was a good size but the bed was poorly constructed and lumpy to sleep on. Shower over the bath went from hot to just warm frequently. Curtains were a flimsy mess that let in light all the time. Laundry takes 2 days instead of the usual "same day" service.

There is a bar/restaurant next door that serves breakfast (okay) and dinner (better, but expensive). Does not serve Russian beer???

Location is okay, but is a good 30 minute walk from the main sights.

Stayed for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is good, close to the city centre and major attractions.

The room was spacious and clean, but poorly furnished. It had a large window and its curtain was very transparent, so it let all the light went through it (this is very important in late May, because the night is very short…).

Breakfast and dinner was OK, limited options but tasty food.

Not the best city hotel I’ve stayed in, but it suited our needs to use it as base to visit the city. There should be better options in the same price range.

We stayed 3 nights in Stony Island Hotel in twin bed classic room. First thing when entering from busy street level to hotel you notice the cleanness. Everything is modern and effecient, and works as you would expect. Our twin bed room was standard size, so there wasn't any wild open spaces, but somehow it felt just a bit bigger than usual standard rooms. Furnitures were new, there was modern flavour in design and great part was that bathroom was beatiful and spacious. The more nights we spent in the hotel, the more i began to appreciate the service, modern touch to hotel and the location. It was in nice neighbourhood, just next to subway. Breakfast was good, altough coffee wasn't that great. Tasty bean souce, potatos and sausages deserve special mention. I would recommend this hotel for both leasure and business travellers. Free cable internet was offered in rooms (altough we did not try it) and free wifi in hotel pub and lobby.

At the reception service was good. My room was big and very clean. The bathroom was as well very clean and there was a lot of towels. The towels were changed daily.
For me the location was convinient as I had meetings nearby. The city center can also be easily reached by subway. The nearest subway station is 200-300 metres from the hotel. The center (Nevsky prospect) is two stops away.
There is a restaurant at the hotel but you don't necessarily have to eat there as there are many restaurants not far from the hotel (e.g. on the Bolshoy prospect, about 10 min walk from the hotel).
The breakfast starts only at 7.30 which is not really good for those you are travelling on business and have a meeting starting at 8. The last day of my stay opened the breakfast room only at 7.50 and there was already a big line outside waiting.

The hotel is a small four storey building and gives an intial impression of being a peaceful hide out - until the room heaters go off, the hot water stops running, the lift stucks on it way up etc, etc. It is a bed and breakfast hotel but dont bother asking for the breakfast you will be dissappointed - guaranteed. The reception reminds one of the Soviet period hostels, the concierge service is non existent, there is no cafe, bar, gym, sauna or any hotel service that makes winter life in this Russian city livable. In short - it is a place of last resort, When you have no place else to go.
