“Great location and excellent staff”
Reviewed September 18, 2007

We stayed at Pio in August 2007 and thought it was great. The rooms are very clean and modern, and our room had a small ensuite.

The staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful (hello Olga!!) and spoke excellent english plus the breakfast that was included was excellent. They also have a laptop with internet access available and offered a very cheap laundry/ironing service.

As the earlier reviewer said, the entrance way to the building and stairway are both pretty grotty, but this is typical of St Petersburg apartments in general and gives no indication of what is inside the apartments so don't let that put you off. Note that it's on the top (fourth I think) and second from top floors and there isn't a lift if you have heavy bags to carry.

the location is also excellent - set in Mokhavaya street, it's about half a block back from the Fontanka river and a block from the Nevsky Prospect which is a very easy 5-10 minute walk. So it is very central and all the major city centre attractions are within walking distance.

We are going back in October and hope to stay there again and would recommend it to anyone going to St Petersburg who wants somewhere central and comfortable in a very central location

As stated in the previous review, the first impression is pretty grim. The outside door and first two floors inside are from Dostoyevsky, but the inside of the Pio itself is from IKEA.

The office staff speak good English and are VERY helpful and friendly. They had recommendations of where to eat, how to get around, etc.

The rooms are bright, fairly spacious, clean and colorful. We were fortunate that the weather was cool, because our room faced the street, which got very noisy at night due to nearby bars and car alarms that went off several times a night. With the window closed the noise was minimal, but if we had it open for ventilation this would have been a problem.

We weren't fond of having to specify an exact time for breakfast (8, 8:30, etc.) especially since that meant the food was on the table precisely at that time. If you were five minutes late your fried eggs would have cooled down. But the food was good and we had a number of enjoyable conversations with other travelers over breakfast.

None of the concerns above marred our stay at the Pio overall. Its good location, helpful staff, modern interior and reasonable price makes it a good place to stay in St. Petersburg. We were more than satisfied and would recommend it.

Reviewed July 7, 2007

Stayed here in July 2007 and found it a good base for sight-seeing. The street door and inside staircase are a poor advert for the hotel which is clean and modern inside. Our room had its own bathroom which looked new and the room was very comfortable. The staff speak English and the girl on reception was really nice and helpful. Breakfast was simple but sufficient (juice,yoghurt,bread and jam,choice of cooked eggs, tea or coffee) and they let you use the kitchen to make drinks when you like. They also have a p.c. which is free to use. Location ideal, 5 minute walk to Nevsky Prospect and the summer gardens. Would recommend the hotel.
