Close to Hermitage

Posted Jul 28, 2017
Pros: Position
Cons: The smell in the corridor
Location: The Hermitage is nearly, Nevsky Pr and the Hop On Hop Off bus over the road outside the Church
We enjoyed our stay here. The room overlooking the church was big enough, the bathroom renovated, the beds were a little hard. The towels were well washed and had lost their fluff. The breakfast were good but very crowded. This is a hotel that caters for large groups so have to put up with crush at breakfast. There was one off putting thing and that was a smell in the corridor - thanks goodness it didn't move into the room. Overall ok

Room was not the best. About 2.5 city blocks from the elevator. Had a ground view of a garden and actually noticed workers could see into my room. As usual, the staff was great. And the location, stellar, next to St Isaac's Cathedral and Hermitage...

Good & clean hotel, friendly staff, key location

Posted Oct 22, 2016
Pros: Our room was fantastic, with a balcony facing Saint Isaac's Cathedral, very nice and clean. All members of the hotel's staff speak English very well, were extra friendly, ready to put their best foot forward in order to make sure that our staying would be as pleasant as possible: Julia - the concierge, Katerina - member of the reception team - nice, clean cut smart youngsters, pleasure to deal with. The Hotel is located in so called city's historical center with walking distance to all the attractions sach as Hermitage and other landmarks. No problem finding various restaurants and bars near by, as well as shopping.
Cons: The bathroom could be a bit larger, but again - this is one of the city's historical buildings, means to change room's layout were most likely limited.
Location: Key location, lots of attractions near by.

very central St P hotel

Posted Sep 11, 2016
Pros: Location, style, keen room rate
Cons: nil obvious
Location: St Isaacs is opposite, short walk to Hermitage, Russian Museum, and other major sights
Easier to access since Admiralty metro station opened. Charming, view of St Isaac opposite, and they even added fireworks.

Not what was in the pictures

Hotel starring is quite different in Russian nstandards. Rooms are to say the least small and modest, doesnt make difference if it is delux or "regular" room. Only studio and above is somewhat different (i.e. in this case bigger).

Great location, effective management

Posted Jul 4, 2016
Pros: The staff's attitude
Cons: Taxi services should be more articulated - learn from US
Great place to stay, though almost Astoria's cost of breakfast which should worth less.

Excellent location across from St Isaac's Cathedral within easy walking distance of the Hermitage, the wonderful Russian Museum, Admiralty, Nevsky Prospect and the iconic statue Of Peter the Great. Very helpful staff.
