Overview - Casa Leto Hotel
The 4 star Casa Leto Hotel is a small and exclusive private hotel, centrally located near to the Hermitage and St. Isaac's Cathedral and catering for the sophisticated business and cultural visitor to St. Petersburg who is looking for something more atmospheric and individual. The hotel occupies a floor of a 19th century building on Bolshaya Morskaya, formerly know as 'Diamond Street'. A few doors away is the Faberge building and the Astoria Hotel. The building was purpose built as apartments for the rich and famous. The court composer, Alfred Zimmerman, used to live in the apartment that forms part of the hotel and many of his works have been found under the floorboards.
The interior of Casa Leto Hotel echoes the building's 19th Century origins. The original plasterwork has been preserved and the same luxurious space and proportions respected. The entrance to the hotel has an impressive old staircase.
In December 2006 Casa Leto was chosen as the best small hotel in St Petersburg by Lonely Planet Travel Guides.
The hotel Casa leto is right in the city centre, just near Nevsky prospest and only 5 minutes to St. Isaac's Cathedral and 10 minutes to Dvortsovaya Square and the Hermitage museum.

Customer Reviews of Casa Leto Hotel
The hotel itself was a huge disappointment on arrival. The entrance is a yellow painted solid metal door and I simply could not believe that this was the hotel we had booked. You will note that the web-site shows the sign above the door not the door itself. We eventually found a bell to ring (one of several as the building is primarily divided into flats). The entrance stairs are in a desperate state. Clearly not seen any serious renovation in years. We had huge misgivings at this point and if we hadn't paid in advance we would have seriously looked for an alternative.As for family owned. The owners live in Italy. As for the press quotations if they are real they must hugely selective and are very misleading. The whole place reminded me of a Russian version of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.But the staff were lovely and worked really hard. Nothing too much trouble. Pleasant simple breakfast, cooked if required. Room large and redolent of grander times. And the location is excellent. And no extras whatsoever.It just needs to be honest! Or at least guests should be warned of what to expect.
Customer Services: Many thanks for the feedback - we think you may be confusing our our site with the hotel's own website as we do show the hotel from outside quite clearly! We post this feedback for others to judge. Generally, hotel receives very positive feedback for location, customer service and standard of accommodation! you were kind enough to comment on this in your final paragraph.MB, Wed, 25 Jul 2012 13:30:00 GMT
