Stayed 2 weeks in Dynasty, overall it is a quite OK hotel.
Good location (just 10 minutes walk to next metro station (Vladimirskaya), lots of shops, bars and restaurants around. Rubinsteinya uliza is a real hotspot for dining and entertainment in St.Pb.
Hotel itself is located in a 19. century building, it looks a bit dated, reception is in a basement floor, there is NO elevator. My room in the 4th floor was quite big with air conditioning and a proper working bathroom, no view just an old courtyard with sometimes lots of noise still early in the morning. Nevertheless very good beds and linnen, slept really well and as a frequent traveller I can state: This is not the standard in many hotels around the globe!
Breakfast is served in a bar, which has been using also as lunchroom and real bar. There is a buffet, but this is very small and the choices are limited. Good options for eggs, blinies, porridge etc, no fresh fruits, vegetables etc. Good coffee!!
Older comments complained several times queues in breakfast room and impact of smoking lounge. Meanwhile there is no smoking area anymore, air quality is quite OK. I did not experience any rush hour / queues at the breakfast "buffet", but spaces are quite limited, early birds have the better choice.
For business lunch and dinner in the hotel they are offering rebates and gifts.
Very friendly and commited ladies on the front desk
It is a 10 minutes walk to the first channel and app. 40 minutes relaxed walk to first real sights (Kasan cathedral).
Overall it is a quite reasonable 3star location and a good base to explore the city.
