If you are looking for a nice hotel with easy access to the monuments with out paying for a 5* hotel, this is an excellent choice for couples and friends. The breakfast was nice but it could be better with some extra slices of bread. The Metro station is almost oposite to the hotel and one station away from the Church of blood. The location has around a lot of choices for food and drink
Stayed at Martin hotel for 5 days as a solo traveller. Clean rooms which appeared newly refurbished. Good location quite close to the train arriving from Moscow and about 2 minutes walk to the nearest metro on Nevsky Prospekt. One of the best things about Martin Hotel was the airport transfer - 1000 RUB to Pulkovo (even at 4am in the morning). Overall very satisfied with the experience.
