We were very happy when we arrived there (May 2010). The location is nearly the best in the city, the interior is cheerful and nice (if you don't mind Ikea furniture), the staff is very polite and helpful. However the owner, Pio, was very unfriendly and hostile. It was weird enough he barely squeezed out "hello" and was constantly checking on us. (3 grown-up people in late 30-s). On the third day the receptionist called our room and said the owner was unhappy we didn't "clean the mess" in the kitchen. We were shocked because we didn't use the kitchen for cooking at all (unlike other guests). The only thing we used was drinking water and apparently we didn't wipe off the water "stains" from the sink after we washed glasses. It was the first time I've heard of such a ridiculous claim from someone who charges around $100 per night for quite modest accommodation..
The receptionist apologized and said that Pio can be unpredictable in his reactions to guests. In other words it really spoiled our impression of this place and now when I'm considering going back to St.Pete I'll definitely choose another hotel.
