The hotel was centrally located within easy reach of the main train station, metro, shops and sites. It was warm and very friendly. The staff could not have been more helpful and spoke a reasonable amount of English. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Everything was done with a smile
Breakfast was varied and of good quality.
Our luggage was kept secure while we went on a two night stay to Moscow - without any charge!
We couldn't fault the stay in any way.
Just off the top end of Nevsky near station for moscow., studio room was spacious comfortable and clean. Nice staff at front desk..much nicer restaurants around than bang in centre. Direct buses from Nevsky to hermitage

I wanted to stay somewhere that isn't chained or luxurious filled with tourists from package tours. I wanted somewhere where locals will stay in and hence I chose this hotel when I went to St Petersburg.
The location is great. It is walking distance to most sites as well as being right by the Metro station and lots of shopping and restaurants.
The hotel is as it says: a boutique hotel. We couldn't find it at first, and then it surprised us with a cute little room 4 floors up the stairs in what seems to be a residential building.
Staff is pleasant but not overly keen on being friendly (nor were they rude - they were just, there).
The room was comfortable and very cute - it was decorated with lovely furnishing, but we didn't have a good sleep....
We had room 402 which was above the main road and with thin walls and windows we could hear all the traffic and nearby parties throughout the night, unfortunately.
Breakfast is sufficient, but I wouldn't call it good...
Having said all that - for the price paid it's good value.
The hotel is on the 4th floor with no elevator. It is not suitable for anyone with mobility limitations.
Overall good hotel, nice position, 25 minutes of walk to Hermitage and close of the main subway stations. Some good restaurants on the secondary streets but also some grocery shops in the neighborhood.
