Perfect accommodation!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 5, 2012

It is very difficult to find this hotel the first time. The hotel can arrange collection from the airport but it is far cheaper to go to the OFFICIAL taxi desk at the airport and sort yourself out. My taxi driver got a little grumpy because he could NOT find the hotel! In the end he threw me out on the street where he thought it was. There was absolutely no sign of it anywhere but some workers from an office in the nearby apartment blocks, who obviously see stranded tourists all the time, kindly pointed the way - down the residential alley and in to the residential courtyard. I loved the residential feeling immediately.
There is a buzzer and one of the young but incredibly smiley and eager to help/please hotel workers will let you in. We were given the keys to our suite... a fabulous living room with sofas, tables, writing desk, a baby grand piano...
The breakfast is included - you have to fill out a form to tell them what you would like and it is delivered to your room at the time you specify... breakfast was a magical mystery tour. The first day we have lots to eat and, other than the cornflakes being some strange varient of cocopops, everything was as per requested. The 2nd morning was interesting when the request for hard boiled eggs turned out to be raw to scarcely mildly boiled and, with the toaster broken - no toast. Thankfully, as standard, there are yogharts and packaged pasteries (these are good for taking out as a snack!). However, as the staff were SO friendly and giggly and nice and as the hotel was clean, comfortable and nice... we could forgive them anything about breakfast.

Some of the receptionist/staff spoke a little English but some didn't so trying to organise anthing via the front desk was also a bit of a magical mystery - never knowing quite how it would end!
The English speaking girl did, however phone the theatre for me to confirm my tickets and did get ito a heated argument, on my behalf, over tickets. Also, on the final day, one of the non speaking girls, after a prolonged game of charades, speaking loudly and slowly and mispronouncing every attempt at the Russian language, did get me a taxi to the dock!

I REALLY REALLY REALLY recommend this accommodation. If ever I go back to Saint Petersburg I WILL definitely stay here again. It's in a quiet part of town but that is part of its charm. We found we were quite able to walk to most places easily from here.

3 nights for a family rom (2 adults & 2 children) cost £397

Directions: easy to find when you know where it is!!!!
