The ambience, view of fontanks, proximity of stores, everything
Wonderful place, the rooms were big, comfortable and with plenty of charm. The staff barely spoke English (some really didn't), but was very helpful and that was not a problem. Location is also great, close to metro, a few restaurants and cafes and. although not at the heart of downtown, at a very pleasant neighborhood and walking distance to the main attractions. I will definitely try to stay here on future trips to St. Petersburg!
Service and location
Very spacious and traditional decor. Fantastic staff despite language difficulties.
To describe the place needs more options. I would describe it as Classic Russian, as in very large rooms, very high ceilings, well decorated, great furniture - so a very spacious feeling. (Which is why I chose it, because that's what the photos seem to convey). Also, a calm place to be, relaxing, and being "micro", felt more personal, rather than being lost in a ultra large hotel. The high scores I've given are relative - it's excellent for 3*s. Worth the extra we felt, for comfort/luxury compared to basic/hostel type places. The smart, albeit small, communal style breakfast area also suited us - we could "diy" breakfast, if you like. The staff very helpful and friendly. Conclusion: excellent for a 3*. Pay less for a hostel (which we've also done, near to here), but be prepared for more hustle and bustle and crowded feeling. Pay more for more luxury, if you want that! We visit St P. twice a year, to visit my wife's family, with our young children. First time we've stayed here. It's very likely we will stay here again.
We were there in the middle of the rest of the building being renovated. A very slight inconvenience. This will soon be all finished, at the rate they were going. Then, little things like, no clock in the room- minor inconvenience; shower head holder a bit loose - easily fixed!
