We liked the location of hostel, all main attractions were nearby only 15 min walk. We liked the facilities they provide to traveller and their hospitality towards guest was very good. Overall it was excellent to stay with Marlen.
Everything was perfect except building entrance. At first glance we got scared but inside hostel was exceptional.
We liked the equipment of the house, its style and our rooms. The lady at the reception was very very kind and helpful. The location is quiet compared to other busy and noisy parts of St. Petersburg and is also very close to many important sites in the historical city and the Metro station Tschernyshevskaya. You can use the kitchen which is very well equipped and the second toilet with a shower, which was only available to us. was a big advantage. Smaller rooms share one bathroom, which can be inconvenient.
The rooms are situated in an old house, which has not been renovated completely and the new rooms in the beautifully apartments are separated by thin walls and we were unlucky to have a neighbour who was sleeping with a running TV and you could hear it as in your own room so we had to knock at his doors to wake him up.
Very clean place. We had the room with own bathroom and toilet which was really nice. The room was huge with separated area for child to sleep. Breakfast was ok and there was plenty of it (it was altering combination of porrage, pancakes, russian pies, bread, cheese, omelettes, sausages). It is delivered previous evening from a bigger hotel so you can eat it either in the evening or in the morning as early as you like.
The place is a bit far off from the central (which is quite typical there). Local buses are very slow in the traffic so it was still faster to walk. There was no safety deposit box. There was no aircon so it might get hot if the weather is hot for days in a row.
I've stayed there for 2nd time already: Clean, new, good kitchen, neat bathrooms
other guests were talking loudly at night in the kitchen, it was quite good heard in the room
The Place looks freshly renovated, neat and clean. Close to the metro Big room Clean public showers and toilets Excellent kitchen, free tea
The day I left the hotel the person at the reception was rather unfriendly
With a stay at Guest House MarLen in St. Petersburg (St. Petersburg City Centre), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Summer Garden and Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.
