The location is very good. Walking distance to all 3 cathedrals. The breakfast is very big. Staff are friendly and helpful.
The bed in my room is a little too old, so not very comfortable.
Excellent location, 5 min on foot to Hermitage and 2 min. to St. Isaac's Cathedral, 5 min to metro station, English speaking staff. Nice bar on the ground floor.
Rooms located mainly on the 4th and 5th floors and no elevator, set breakfast served individually on a plate, a few slices of ham and cheese and eggs, a croissant or similar, coffee/tea - same every day. Ventilation of the restaurant's kitchen on the staircase leading to guests' rooms which gave off unpleasant smells from afternoon till late evening. We spent 4 nights there, they somehow forgot to change towels.
The hotel has to get inside from the restaurant in ground floor and has no elevator while the rooms are in 4th and 5th. I know the condition before I have made the booking, but still think it would be better to have one...
It's really close to St. Isaac's cathedral, bus stop, and even metro station. Compared to other hotels in this neighborhood, it is really worth of money. Highly recommend to people who also attend 72h visa free program. With a rasterant in site, it would be a good choice to dine in there. Also the staffs were very helpful. The breakfast start a little bit late for us, but it was sumptuous.
The room was very quiet. The location is very practical for visitors.
There is no real reception room. Climbing the stairs was ok for us but is not necessarly easy for normal people. We got the impression that the staff is composed of students only (who work too many hours) which is not good. Happily we were received by Kyril who was able to answer nearly all our questions. Thank you very much Kyril, you are making a good job! The entrance to the Residence is old and not friendly.
I love the location of the hotel - right in the center of St Petersburg. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful :). The room was comfortable and clean but a bit small for two friends if you are not a couple.
