Nice hotel at a good price

Matisov Domik is located away from the major tourist areas but close to the Mariinski Theater. Hence, it has been a favorite of opera singers and operagoers. It is undergoing a renovation and the newly opened rooms are far superior to the old ones. I hope the renovation of the old rooms bring them up to this standard. Breakfast is included and also has improved. There is complimentary parking. The staff all speak acceptable English. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay this last December.

Great reasonably-priced Russian family hotel

Posted Jul 4, 2013
Pros: Good price, quiet location, large room
Cons: Limited English-speaking staff
Location: By a canal in a quieter part of the city. Walk to Mariinsky Theatre.
This hotel is a little out of the way but the hotel has a shuttle bus to the nearest metro station. Taxi to the city centre is about 600 rubles. Having said that, it's a quiet location by a canal and only 15 mins walk to the Mariinsky Theatre. It's also very affordable for St. Petersburg. We booked a triple room for myself, my wife and our 14 year-old son. we were given a very large two-room suite. Clean, housekeeping and fresh towels every day. Russian-style breakfast buffet included. The staff had limited English but were friendly and as helpful as they could be given the language. If you're looking for a genuine Russian-style hotel experience at a reasonable rate and are prepared to be a little adventuous, but still safe and comfortable, I would recommend this hotel.

ok just for yourself if don't care about service

I was arrived to the hotel late night but the receptionist says I can't enter because we don't have passports and they can't accept driver licenses. In addition, they requires passport for each guest. That was very strange, because usually driver license or 1 passport is enough for the person booking the room. This is true for any city in Russia, not St-Petersburg only - know it by my own experience. The additional thing - whole conversation was ... (a little) below common politeness standards. It looks like staff only cares about himself (I can't let you in because I afraid of ... -- receptionist) and absolutely don't care about the guests. By the way, while I wait on the reception (after I walk back to the office, get passports and come back) somebody come diown and says there is no light on the floor... May be that person did not know there are moving sensors, may be not - i did not check... I've take standard room, which was ... ok just to fall asleep, wake up early and go out. Very simple, very basic quality. And TV with broken remote control...

Mad house

Posted May 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel used to be a mad house and as you can imagine is located very far from any point of interest. Getting there is not easy and ones you are there you feel isolation. If you are in Petersburg for white nights you should not stay there. No restaurant near by so check in on a full stomach
