My goal was to find a hotel that would offer about 100 Euro per three nights in Saint Petersburg (in August 2016) and would not be located too far away from subway or the center. With price of 135 Euro per three nights, Regina hotel was my choice.
Location is quite good, 10 minutes till Petrogradskaya or Chkalovskaya subway. The first station is just two stops away from Nevsky and is connected directly to Moskovskaya, where buses to airport can be found. I was not able to locate more hotels that are both reasonably priced and located close to subway.
The hotel has quite nice door bell. It is important, because you will find that you can hear it from your room on the ground floor. The main issue in the hotel is relatively weak sound isolation. You will hear quite clearly what happens in the doorway, or if somebody taking shower. Next room also can be slightly overheard through the wall. So you should be tolerant to some external sounds and not willing to make noise yourself. However most of the time it is quiet so my sleep was never disturbed. The isolation issue is the reason why I can not rate this hotel on the top level.
Otherwise, hotel is quite nice. Room was on a smaller side, which seems to be common for budget hotels in Saint-Petersburg. It is enough if you come to hotel just to sleep. Room had everything necessary - several wall sockets, good bathroom with shower cabin and hair dryer, individual air conditioner (not tested) and even a tiny fridge (powered off, so it is best to ask hotel staff how to make use of these). It offers free wi-fi (speed 5Mbps up/down), that occasionally experiences short breaks, but generally works. Breakfast (served till 11) is included, you will be asked by reception when you are about to have it. Breakfast served in quite small room, so hotel perhaps load balances the breakfast attendance, but when I came there, it was possible to have a seat. Breakfast contains tea/coffee, boiled eggs, youghurt, cheese and sausages, and you have to tell waiter lady whether you have omlette, scrambled eggs, pancakes or porridge, she will make that for you and bring to your table. I was provided with a kettle to my room by request, these are subject to availability. The hotel is very clean.
The room is best characterized as a bedroom. Table is tiny. One chair. Two bedside tables.
Nearby area is quite good. Malyj and Bolshoi Prospects (nearby streets) have great amount of grocery stores and eating places. The vicinity of subway station Petrogradskaya has several fast food places - Chaynaja Lozhka, Teremok, KFC, Pizza Hut and McDonalds. Some places are open till late.
