Let's start with the good things.
The location was fantastic at about a 5 minute walk from the Hermitage and just off of Nevsikiy Prospect as well as right on the Moika Stream. Wonderful location.
The staff was friendly, nice, and accommodating. They are happy to help with excursions (at reasonable prices) and speak English well.
It was interesting to stay in a former communal apartment. I think some guests might be surprised if they are expecting a typical hotel experience.
The breakfast was fine and not as bad as other comments here suggest.
It's not amazing but it is good enough.
Tea and coffee any time of the day in the kitchen is a nice bonus.
The room itself is fine. Neither good nor bad.
The wifi never worked in the room even after many requests and reminders (I was often told the router would be reset). It is a pain to go to the kitchen for wifi every time. Apparently the room I stayed in never has good wifi coverage which I think is unacceptable when the ad reads that all rooms have wifi. This spoiled an otherwise pleasant stay because we needed wifi throughout our trip and it was a hassle to continually worry about it.More
