I agree with all of the contributors here. The Fillippov is a good-quality option for its price. The rooms are spacious, especially when compared to Scandinavia, and the staff were helpful and kind. Access to the Fillipov and rooms is very secure. The rooms and hotel lobby were clean. Breakfast is provided and it is possible to order dinner via reception to the local Mama Roma restaurant. We found that option very handy as we were travelling with a young child and are grateful to the hotel staff for helping us with this. The rooms are quiet given how busy the surrounding streets are thanks to double-glazed windows. The hotel is very close to a cashpoint, V-Mart for supplies and Teremok pancake diner. Downsides: The Fillipov is situated in a regular apartment building so the entrance and staircase area is typical of eastern Europe. Some contributors considered it scary and I do understand why. While it is dustier and darker than what you'd find in the rest of Europe and US, it is secure and safe. I feel I should add the main access point and staircase to the hotel bears no resemblance to the quality and cleanliness inside the Fillipov. The water quality takes some getting used to and my young son refused to shower throughout our 4-day stay. (I refer here specifically to the shower, as with the rest of Russia drinking the tap water is not advised). Personally, I didn't think it was that close to the nearest metro station; it took a fair walk to reach it. In summary, I would recommend the Filippov to anyone travelling to St.-P on a budget with a young family.
