Superb location and helpful service
Posted Nov 1, 2012
The hotel occupies two floors of an apartment block in an unbeatable location,100 m from Nevsky Prospekt. The staff are young, very friendly and exceedingly helpful. The room was small but tidy and clean, with clean towels provided every day. The heating was on at the end of October, and worked well. The TV set has only Russian channels but internet access on a shared computer in a little communal area is fast. Breakfast, served in another bulding nearby, was more than adequate. The only drawback really was that the tiny bathroom which came with the room (it seems we received an upgrade due to luck/under-occupancy) smelt foul all the time, which we put down to the ancient sewers of the city. Something that cannot be helped but if you feel you cannot put up with this kind of thing, give it a serious thought.
