No curtains in the room to keep the light out in the summer time in St Petersburg means being woke up early every day (3 am). The cooling system hadn’t been cleaned in a long time and we woke up most mornings with mosquito bites. Not a comfortable stay
The hotel offers a very homely atmosphere.
Just the place and interior of the hall and room, they gave me after my request to change the previous one.
The girl on the reception was really terrible, unpolite to me in everything:in talking, in pose, in explainig the rules and for the other request with check-out. it took me 25 minutes to get the reciept.
Nicely decorated clean rooms, good location, quiet. Good breakfast buffet, especially the sausages)) Polite restaurant staff.
Smelly water, the reason of which the staff failed to explain. awful elevator that's not big enough for two people, let alone two people with luggage (especially important if you live on the 5th floor). No 24-hour room-service and malfunctioning Wi-Fi during the whole 4-day stay. Restaurant closes early, too often used for corporate events. Low-key service that's sometimes too "low".
Great afternoon tea and cheesecake!
Very thin walls, audibility, just as if the walls are not quite. Sleep is impossible due to the fact that any sound is heard. This is a critical parameter.
it was old ,derty and much diffrent beteen photoes and realety
Only the bathroom was good.It is not far from the main interesting sites.
We arrived late at night and nobody helped us with the luggage.Our roon was in the third story of the bullding but the elevator did not worked, so we had to carry our luggage up.They did not clean the room at all for 3 days we stayed there.Some of the stuff were unkind.Every time we opened the water there was a kind of snoring and noise. It is not 4 stars may be 2-3 stars.
It is perfect place to spend the weekend in St Pt. with husband or with children. There are some interesting tours especialy for kids (visit to warship and doll's museum, aquapark). It is not center of city, but it is very cozy place, close to Neva river. The room was very comfortable and spacious ( for me was very nice the floor heating in bathroom), the reception girls were open and friendly. Breakfest is smorgasbord, with diiferent choice of snack ( may not so much as in 5stars hotels:)
We have a little problem with electronic key ( it didnt work, when we came back from night walk), and also we awaited for our omlet at the breakfast too much time:(
The hotel is very close to metro station Vladimireostrovskaya. Also a lot of busses are located at the metro station. Quiet area.
