It is the 2nd time I have stayed at the hotel in 9 months. And still haven't been disappointed with either visit. The staff are always very friendly and helpful, and always welcome you warmly. Being right in the middle of SPB and a not a stone throw from Nevsky Prospeck, you have every thing at your fingertips. To name a few; shops, restaurants even the metro and trams and not forgetting the attractions

Attractive hotel in old building.

Posted Sep 8, 2015
Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is about a mile along Nevsky Prospect from most of the main sites which are easy to reach by bus. The food is good and everything was good value for money.

A lovely hotel

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Boutique type feeling. A good restaurant and an outdoor cafe.
Cons: Breakfast .
Location: The location is 2 min. to metro, 7- 10 to the train station. Many cafes , shops and restaurants nearby.
Just of the Nevsky Propect ( lower part) in a renovated building. A bit of a walk to main attractions... one metro stop ( well marked ) will do it. Also, a direct bus to Hermitage ( 10min). A very good deal for the money IMO.

great hotel, close to everything

Posted Jun 9, 2015
great hotel, staff is friendly and professional. I stayed at their only 2 room apartment unit which was very convenient, it has a separate entrance from hotel courtyard, two large bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, 2 full bathrooms etc. Hotel location is unbeatable, its only a block from Nevsky prospect and a metro station. I did not use their restaurant so cant comment on that.
