    Windows on the tram line, and they are a little audible.

    Beautiful hotel, clean, comfortable. The room has everything you need, drinking water in the corridor. Quiet, neighbors can not be heard at all. Delicious breakfast, fresh croissants.

    For a traveler who can be somewhat independent of tourist services, this hotel is a great choice.

    At this time, the hotel showed wear in some places. The room might have had an additional chair. Traffic noise could be an issue, either on front or back, depending on current conditions. It would be nice to have an English language TV news option.

    The location is just a couple of metro stops from major downtown sites. It's in a lively neighborhood with inexpensive restaurants nearby and a supermarket across from the metro station. The room is well designed with essentials for tourist comfort: reasonable-sized shower with good water pressure, sufficient towels, refrigerator/minibar. Iron/board available. Cold and hot drinking water on some floors. Staff friendly and accommodating. Very diligent daily cleaning. WiFi worked well.

    The coffee machine in the breakfast needs an upgrade.

    The staff was polite and helpful. The hotel is comfortable and clean with a little bar attached to it which was definitely a bonus. The breakfast had a big variety of food which was great to start our day. The hotel is close to the metro and bus station and a 15 minute drive from the centre with a taxi.

    I requested a quite room and, as stuff ensured, I got such a room. However, this hotel's windows look either at Kamennoostrovsky prospekt or at Karpovka river embarkment, neither of which are quite. So, if you have sensitive sleep, choose another hotel.

    This hotel is conveniently located neat metro station Petrogradskaya. It is not located in the city center, but it's easy to reach it. The hotel is ok 3-star hotel, breakfast is ok.

    For business purpose: no working table (but noticed in room description) and you can hear your neighbours. But it is not crucial.

    Exellent for all points: cleanliness (no dust AT ALL in all locations!), wi-fi, room space. Breakfast was 10 out of 10. A lot of options (eggs, grilled tomatoes, scramble, pancakes, cheesecakes...) and all delicious. Fare prices for mini bar items.

    Rooms were overheated, so I had to cool it down by opening a window and since windows were facing a major road there was a lot of noise and dust coming into the room. I've switched room for my second day of stay.

    Wi-Fi signal is very weak at the rooms and reception, so it hardly allows to check mail. The perfect solution here is to use the local cafe/pub's wifi on the ground floor, which is much better. All in all the hotel is good anyway.

    Perfect location - just 5 min walk to the nearest tube station, surprisingly good breakfasts, nice beds - I had very good sleep. Very friendly staff, the rooms and facilities are clean, excellent value for this money.

    St Petersburg can be very cold sometimes even in summer, but the air con wasn't working. We contacted the front desk, but the staff said he couldn't speak English. We are very irritated by such an awful excuse! This place was a bit far from nevisky prospect which is a important demerit.
