      The staff was very attentive to our needs. The rooms are very handsome, and the public spaces very comfy.

      The location is just fair. For the Mariinski Theater it is great; otherwise, it is a bit of a walk to the center of town. But not undoable. There are mosquitos in the room, but I think this is a typical problem of St. Petersburg.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Great and helpful staff. Wonderful rooms.

      The hotel is not located near public transportation and is located to far from sights. Hotel is friendly to children but I would not recommend it as a family hotel.

      I liked most of all the design of the hotel and the very welcoming staff. My room looked like I stayed in some village at my friends and they gave me the room of their older daughter: it had a huge bed with a canopy, decorated in white and lightrose colours,all the rooms looks different, so in case you don't prefer such a romantic style, you'll find something else to your taste

      I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of April. The hotel is cozy and small in quiet place, my room was very beautiful and comfortable, just what I needed during my week-end in spb. Polite and smiling staff, good breakfast, free internet. One of my best hotel experiences I ever had.

      Simply the best hotel in SPb. Great value for your money, and the hotel restaurant was actually quite good!

      Drainage in the bathroom did not work so well. Wall is thin so you can hear everything next door.
