The hotel was a little difficult to find at first but if you stand right in front of St. Issac's Cathedral with the statue in the square at your back, the street is to your right. Go down about 3 blocks and just past the coffee shop is the buzzer to the hotel.
I found my room #1, to be the largest room ever in all my travels. My bathroom was not a shared bathroom but it was just outside my room. The drapes are sheer so you may want to bring an sleep mask, it didn't bother me. Though it was -8 C outside, my room was not cold at all. Yulia was really helpful and she even drew me a map my first day there, Anastasia was the other person on the desk my second day. Both girls speak very good English and are very eager to answer your questions about the city. I would certainly book here again when I come to visit St. Peteresburg for the 3rd time next year.
I can highly recommend the Pushka Inn in St. Petersburg. The staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. Room was quiet and very comfortable. Hotel is located within walking distance of many of the major attractions. I would definitely stay there again.

A1 experience from check in to check out. Great location close to 'must see' sites, museums and panoramas of the magnificent old imperial capital of Russia. The building is a well preserved and meticulously restored 18th century palace. It's worthwhile to spend several hours exploring and admiring the interiors. The hotel's atmosphere calls for 'slowing down', look around and enjoy staying in cozy luxury.

I had a wonderful stay at the Sky Hotel during my recent trip to St. Petersburg. The hotel room, while small, provided a clean environment, comfortable bed, lots of closet space and excellent security. The staff were absolutely wonderful--checking me in and registering my visa several hours prior to the official check-in time, providing me with advice on how to best visit the sites and get to the train station, and let me keep my luggage there and sit in their lounge while waiting for my night train to arrive. The hotel doesn't have too many rooms, so the shared bathroom, which was always extremely clean, was never occupied when I needed to use it. The hotel's shared kitchenette provided clean hot and cold water, which was terrific for filling up my water bottle and making myself cups of soup for dinner. The wi-fi signal was strong and steady. The location couldn't have been better--central to the main N. Prospekt street, the Hermitage Museum and every other site a tourist could want. I was able to walk everywhere. I couldn't have been more pleased with this hotel!
Excellent value for money. Clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful and coped well with English. Good breakfast. Big bonus to be so near the sights, especially the Hermitage. I was on my own but felt perfectly safe walking everywhere I wanted to go. I would stay there again but would go slightly later in the year as the hovercraft to Peterhof does not run until after 9th May.
I strongly recommend this hotel. I prefer a small, compact room and that is what you get with this hotel. The bathroom is tiny, but I don't need a huge bathroom. But best of all, the internet service is superb. Better download and upload speeds that what I get in the U.S. with ATT or Comcast.
