My family of four had a wonderful stay here. This hotel is conveniently located on Marata Street, just off Nevesky Avenue. It's close to the train station (a 10-minute walk) and Nevesky Prospekt - undoubtedly the most happening place in the city. There are plenty of cafes, coffee shops, upscale restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The room that we got for our family of four is a room (#3) downstairs with a large king-sized bed and we asked for an extra bed for which we were charged a reasonable 2600 roubles for 4 nights. The check-in was a breeze assisted by Nikita.
Please allow me to digress for a bit, to express my appreciation of this gentleman. I feel that dedicated and customer-friendly staff like him make all the differece in any establishment. Nikita speaks fluent English and went beyond the call of duty to help us out on many occasions. He assisted me with locating and then getting a local Russian SIM card. When my Uber account stopped working he booked a cab using his acocunt (I paid cash to the Uber driver) and gave me a taxi number to call if required. Unfortunately, the number didn't work when I needed it and we were kinda stranded. I called Nikita and he arranged for a taxi to meet us where we were (giving directions to a driver in Russian about the meeting point in a foreign land is no easy thing). He continued to be helpful until our check-out.
The hotel may lack a "curb appeal", sandwiched as it is between cafes and supermarkets on either side. But the rooms are decently large, bathrooms clean (seemed recently renovated) and quite comfortable. There is a small "restaurant" where you can have food and drinks. But, as suggested by some reviewers, we preferred to eat outside in the cafes and restaurants next door. We really could not find anything as a negative in this family and budget friendly hotel with a great location. Would stay here again, and recommend this place to others.
