Mid-class apart-hotel ideal for tourists, perfect for couples, suitable for a short business stay. Value for money. (+) Perfect central location - in the middle of Nevsky Avenue, next to underground station. Modern design of interior, high ceiling, soundproof. Rooms are small but very good laid out. Amenities: small kitchen with basic equipment and a microwave, coffee caps/tea selection. Nice set of bathroom utensils. Very clean, daily clean-up. Comfortable beds. 24/7 reception, friendly and helpful personal. Hotel personal communicates fast and efficiently via WU. Eating: plenty of cafes and restaurants around, 24/7 food stores next door. (-) no elevator - the hotel is on upper floors, the stairs are ample but might be an obstacle for big or heavy suitcase. Cold bathroom without heater - pretty unpleasant in winter. …
Very nice location, nice hotel room with everything needed included. Most of the staff will try their best to speak English to help you. Do not waste your money on the shuttle service through the hotel, it is expensive and they didn't honor the return shuttle and I had to pay for it on my way to the airport.
Kaleidoscop on Nevsky is very close to Mayakovsky metro station and many, many restaurants and a few grocery stores. The Anichkov Bridge over the Fontanka River is less than 10 minutes walk, and that is the start of the historic city center. There is the Nevsky shopping center located a block away. The rooms have a smaller loft bed with outlets near the beds, and the construction was really solid. I think all rooms have a kitchenette, a mini refrigerator, a big sink, and a modern glass top hot plate. There is tea, a water heater, a coffee maker, and limited supply of coffee pods in the room. While the rooms aren't all that large, there are a lot of nice touches, such as window sills that double as shelves or somewhere to sit and lots of hooks to hang clothing.
My husband and I stayed there as a part of our honeymoon trip. Our room wasn't large by any means, but it was very comfortable, tastefully furnished and probably one of the best-equipped rooms I've ever seen. Plus a lovely view and very central. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Our room was really nice and clean. At the bathroom there was also tampons and pantyliners which other hotels have never offered before. However, if you are staying at room for three people the bed above kitchen might be too small for you if you are taller than 165cm. As I'm below that it suited very well for me. :) The staff was really nice and super helpful. The location is perfect and people travelling from Finland it's really easy to arrive (with luggages) to the hotel from St. Petersburg's Finland station as the Mayakovskaja metro station is in the same block. In general I don't have anything bad to say about this hotel and our stay. Will definitely stay here next time.
