a clean and basic room with a good bed, tv with one english channel and lots of other language channels, good wifi in the room and a reliable and not busy computer in the reception area, a very good bathroom and a very good and friendly breakfast
you pay for the very convenient location with some street noise

This is a nice, clean, centrally located hotel (we walked to St. Isaac's & Yusopov Palace and Nevsky Prospect), with free lobby internet PC and wi-fi throughout. The Front Desk staff was exceptionally helpful (calling taxis, arranging transfers, etc) and everyone of them spoke English. These are plain rooms, in a plain hotel (nothing fancy) but with a King Bed, comfortable chairs, decent working desk space, generous closets, large bathroom with shower AND bath, TV and a Free Breakfast...and at a price that cannot be beat. We finished our River Cruise from Moscow to St. Pete and stayed at Herzen from Sat thru Tues. If you're not looking for "fancy", this is a hidden "value" gem for the money!

We spent 4 days (and night) in SPB and the choice of the hotel was very important. This location is close to everything and the mini hotel is very pleasant: the rooms are nice, spacious and silent. The staff at the reception speaks fluently English and is very "customer satisfaction" oriented.
A very pleasant stay.

We [ two of us] stayed four nights 26 to 30 may '09, Accomodation fixed for our independent ly Packaged Tour by Optima Tours Company [ of st. Petersburg]. Disappointed by the crummy joint - 4th floor [lift-yes] of a building that had scaffolding all around it, Netted outside/ repairs going on - thanks to the "Spin" from Optima Tours - misleading us. Said she had arranged for a "Room with a View" !!
Staff were friendly, breakfast very average; the main Good thing about the hotel was outside of it, i.e. a very good Location - near the Sights and Sounds of St Petersburg - all within easy reach. For the Budget limited this hotel is OK - but to digress from it -- Beware of the Spin from the Tour Companies -

The hotel was average, but you kind of expect it for the price you pay, compared to other hotels in Russia, so, considering the price, it was ok. Breakfast was very poor, and the staff could be more friendly, but the location is very good, it is right in the centre, there is no need to take the underground, and there is one computer with free internet for customer's use.
