The unbeatable location means this rather modest bed-and-breakfast charges a bit more than it should, but overall it's an appealing place and a welcome addition to the hotel scene in this neighborhood. The five-room apartment building was appropriated by the Soviets and made into communal housing, but it is again privately owned. Guests share two semirenovated bathrooms. Though the lodging is in the heart of the city, the decor is reminiscent of Russian dachas, or country houses: basic wooden furniture, embroidered bedspreads, and white walls, instead of the busy wallpaper favored by apartment-dwellers. The high ceilings and hardwood floors give it a sense of faded grandeur, as does a 5pm tea service in the small dining room. The owners make Russian, European, and American breakfasts, which can be a choice between coffee and a roll, ham and eggs, or steaming porridge, depending on who's cooking. Internet access and visa arrangements are available. VAT is included.
