Staff were polite and friendly, room was spacious, quiet neighbourhood.
Nothing to like about it.
Totally run down crumbling building. Very small cramped noisy room. No english speaking staff. One croissant and one cup of tea for breakfast. Noisy toilet fittings. No service whatsoever. I guess it makes good business sense not to have english speaking staff, since they wouldn't listen to any requests. Don't go!.
The B&B is close to the metro Teknologicheskiy Institut and to many bus stops, nearby there are many little shops and cafeterias.
The staff does not speck English at all. There should have been a shared kitchen but there is only a shared microwave at the entrance (cause of bad smell) and a kattle inside the room, breakfast consists of a cup of tea or coffee and a croissant (bought at the supermarket) . My room was very small and located in a separated building from the main "hall". In the regulation is written that cleaners should come every 4 nights of stay but in reality they come only when they want.
Clean, convenient, comfortable, affordable hotel in St. Petersburg
It was much more clean than what I expected for the price, so I was really glad. The shared kitchen area was also very clean, nicely arranged, spacious, with a big refrigerator, microwave, toaster, plenty of clean tableware, and even a purified water cooler, which impressed me. My bed was comfortable, and I was happy with the desk and very comfortable chair, and I was glad that the room was neither too hot nor too cold. The bathroom was also clean, big enough, and well-lighted. The location was good and close to the metro (Tech. Inst. Station) and Pyaterochka supermarkets and some nice green areas, parks. All staff were helpful and friendly. I was really pleased with the place, and it was a great deal for the price.
I would have liked a washing machine because the closest laundromat I found was kind of difficult to find, and I really needed to wash clothes, and I didn't want to risk damaging anything by trying to wash my clothes by hand. Also the plumbing frequently made noise when I used it, but I think this might be kind of common. It worked perfectly, apart from the noise.
The room was more clean and comfortable than I expected. The bed was quite comfortable for me, and the temperature in the room was good-not too hot, not too cold. There was a nice desk with a comfortable chair, which was more than I expected. The kitchen was very big, clean, and had more amenities than I expected. For example, it had a purified water cooler. Lots of space in the refrigerator. Several nice, clean tables. Friendly staff, especially one front desk lady who spoke excellent English, was really helpful. Also it's not far from the Metro (Tech. Inst. Station) and two Pyaterochka supermarkets. I would stay here again if I return to Petersburg!
I wish there had been at least a washing machine. I stayed for a week, and I needed to wash clothes. When I asked about a washing machine and was told there was no washing machine, I wasn't given a suggestion about where I could wash clothes. I had to go to a laundromat to do laundry, and it was a bit difficult to find, and took up a lot of my time. Also it's kind of uncomfortable to carry a bag of laundry on the metro. Fortunately, the laundromat staff at Prachka on Ulitsa Sadovaya, dom 32 or 28/30? (it's located deep in a courtyard, so you have to walk a bit more to find it) is very nice and helpful.
With a stay at Rinaldi Olympia, you'll be centrally located in St. Petersburg, within a 5-minute drive of Kazan Cathedral and Palace Square. Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and a 24-hour front desk. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a cruise ship terminal shuttle.
