Ok läge, 3 min gång till metroPosted Aug 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
Har man inte så höga krav och vill bo billigt så är detta ett bra alternativ. Metro är väldigt nära, kiosker och bankautomater finns i området. Lugnt område utan trafik som stör.

Wonderful staff, local neighborhoodPosted Jul 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff were very helpful, especially since the airlines lost our luggage. Their English was very good, too. Although the hotel was a little hard to find on a somewhat sketchy street, it was close to a family-centric and safe area. The subway is within a 10-minute walk, through a lovely park, and the stop is only one away from the tourist destinations. It's also located a 5-minute walk from the Neva River, where you can take water tours (a must-do tourist activity).

First visit to St PetersburgPosted Oct 31, 2013
Pros: Cost, location, free wifi, staff, kitchen available if desired, cleanliness.
Cons: The wall insulation could be improved so that less noise travels between the rooms.
Location: Well located, probably equidistance between two metro stations. Many restaurants nearby with lots to do.
Our first ever visit to St Petersburg and we booked to stay at the Marks Inn - purely based on Tripadvisor reviews and the price. We were slightly apprehensive due to the low price but we shouldn't have worried. Our stay was absolutely brilliant! We struggled a little to find the hotel initially, but after a few false starts we stumbled across it. The girl on reception was helpful and we then went to our room. We found the room to be very clean, with all the amenities you would want. There are also grocery stores nearby to buy water etc. In the hotel, there is a communal kitchen which you could use if you wanted, although we never during our time there. The walls are a little on the thin side, but paying the price we did in this very expensive city, you cannot have everything. This hotel offers excellent value for money and is located a short distance from two well situated metro stations making travelling around the city very easy. There was no air con but there was a fan which made sleeping ok (we went in August), perhaps not ideal but on the plus side probably better for the environment! St Petersburg is not yet a tourist mecca (a great thing in my opinion) but that means that it can at times be a little daunting, this hotel makes you feel safe and very welcome in a somewhat frosty city. A gem of a hotel offering wonderful value for money.

Preis/Leistung okay, es geht aber besserPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Vor allem der im Vergleich zu den anderen Hotels in St. Petersburg, sehr niedrige Preis überzeugt natürlich. Die Lage des Hotels ist sehr gut, man geht knapp 5-10 Minuten zur nächsten Metro (Gorkovskaya), der nächste Supermarkt ist um die Ecke. Ein paar Sachen gibt es aber zu kritisieren: so war z.B. das Licht im Gemeinschaftsbad jeden zweiten Tag kaputt und wurde auch immer erst am nächsten Tag repariert. Unser Zimmer im ersten Stock (wo sich die Zimmer mit Gemeinschafsbäder befinden) waren recht minimalistisch ausgestattet (kein TV) und ziemlich klein. Die Küche im Hotel eignet sich lediglich für kleine Snacks, da es keine Herdplatten oder einen Ofen gibt, was angesichts der oftmals teuren Restaurant-Preise in St. Petersburg ne tolle Alternative gewesen wäre- schade. Außerdem hatten wir jeden Abend trotz Mücken-Gitter vor dem Fenster relativ viele Mücken im Zimmer sitzen. Die Sauberkeit der Zimmer und auch der Badezimmer war aber tadellos. Was den Service an der Rezeption angeht haben wir unterschiedliche Erfahrungen gemacht: manche der Angestellten konnten sehr wenig Englisch und konnten uns dementsprechend nicht allzu sehr helfen; eine Mitarbeiterin konnte aber sehr gut Deutsch und war bei allen Fragen eine große Hilfe. Licht und Schatten also. Frühstück gab es nicht im Hotel, dafür direkt gegenüber in einem kleinen Café für umgerechnet knapp 3€. Das bestellt und bezahlt man dann im Hotel und war ganz okay, aber auch relativ wenig.

Close to pleasant park and metroPosted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: Close to metro via a pleasant walk. Friendly staff. Small kitchen.
We chose to accept the offer of a taxi transfer to the hotel so it was easy to find for us. The entrance is through a black gate which is opened remotely via reception. Inside the hotel it is very clean and the staff pleasant. The room is small but clean. The beds are narrow and firm but we prefer firm beds. The shared kitchen was useful with a microwave, fridge, kettle and some nice seating. We brought in some food and drinks from the supermarket in the adjacent street which was handy. On the first day we walked into the city which took around 30-40 minutes but after that we strolled for 10 minutes through a lovely park to the metro station. It is not in the tourist area (though it is close to the Peter and Paul Fortress) so it was good to walk in the park with the locals on an evening. There are some eating places nearby too. The hotel can arrange a modest breakfast at a cafe across the road but it was not served until 10 am at weekends so we only had it on our last morning as we preferred to be out sightseeing. Would use the hotel again.

I recommendPosted Jul 3, 2012
Pros: The staff
Cons: Public transportation #6 Tram was not running which made it difficult to get to the hotel directly.
For me, the difference between being just a simple, good hotel and a very good hotel was the staff. They were very helpful and friendly. I would stay at the hotel again.
