Very disappointingPosted Sep 1, 2014
This is place is not worth the money. A good location is the only thing it's got going for it.

Great Location with Superior ServicePosted Aug 26, 2014
The Petro Palace couldn't be more convenient located centrally among the major sites of the Palace Quarter of St Petersburg. The staff were uniformly helpful, from the immediate provision of the Visa Support Document to advice on sightseeing and transportation services. The hotel's understated lobby and bar area are pleasantly unpretentious but accommodating and being on a commercial side-street, there are numerous alternatives for meals, snacks or drinks within steps. Overall, the Petro Palace offers excellent value for money.

Good value hotelPosted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Location, Up-dated Decor of Rooms, Front Desk Staff helpful, Excellent Wi-fi in the room, Good Value.
Cons: Concierge could be a bit more helpful. The walls are also a little bit thin in that one could hear the tv of next door.
Location: Very near St. Isaac's Cathedral and easy walk to all the main attractions of central St. Petersburg.
Stayed at the Petro Palace for 6 nights in August 2014 and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The rooms were clean and comfortable (stayed in the 7th floor) and updated. The hotel is centrally located and an easy walk to St. Isaac's, the Winter Palace, Nevsky Prospekt, Kazan Cathedral, and the hydrofoils to Peterhof. The staff were helpful and spoke English. The gift shop in the hotel had a very good selection of souvenirs and were very reasonably priced. Our room had excellent fast wifi connection (you might want to check if the cost for this is included in your room charge, ours was). The breakfast was very good, with a wide range of choices and it wasn't at all busy when we went to eat between 7-7:30am. All in all, very good value for the price, highly recommended.

Very convenient locationPosted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: Excellent location, nice and kind staff, clean rooms.
Cons: WiFi was not strong enough, and we had hard time connecting to Internet. We also wanted a bath tub, and breakfast buffet.
Location: It's 5 minutes to a metro station, and 10 minutes to The Hermitage Museum, the boat to the park and the palace at Peterhof, St. Issac's Cathedral.
We stayed 4 nights in late July to August. Transfer service was there to meet us at the airport as we requested. We arranged a taxi to the railway station when we left. The concierge service was excellent, and front people were very good English speakers.

Its a nice, comfortable hotel which is very close to city centre so you can walk to everywhere. Its location is easy to transport from the airport by metro (first you take bus from airport which takes you to the closest metro station to airport )

big disappointmentPosted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: centraly situated. metro close to hotel. two bottles of min.water each morning. staff was helpfull and correct
Cons: i would like to see larger beds and a more diversified breakfast
Location: best location: hermitage museum, boat trips, even the island is neaby to visit on foot. there are more attractions around the hotel like Nevsky buleva
my complaint is related to what i see in "value for money" although the room was big as per surface in square meters, it was extremly narrow. in fact the room was higher than wider.Two persons could not pass together from one side of the room to the other. The beds (each of the two) were very narrow - not wider than one meter. in such an expensive hotel I would expect larger beds. The lobby is not at all impressive more like a lobby of a three star hotel Breakfast : nothing special that you expect from a four star hotel.Basic . no bellboy at arrival or departure. in fact i did not see bell boy at all. In conclusion: I did not feel staying at a four star hotel. No value for money at this hotel.

Excellent alternative to more expensive neighborsPosted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Centrally located, good facility, helpful staff
Location: near admiraltyembankment, Hermitage, St Issac, Peterhof Express, and Nevsky Prospekt, also close to metro station, bus to Smolny runs past hotel front
This hotel is right in the middle of it all, and steps away from Angletere and Astoria, which are far more expensive. It is probably not as luxurious, but has all the right stuff at the right places. The only complaint I have is our room location. The building is kind like a square loop. Our room happens to be on the wrong side of it so we had to walk quite a ways to get in and out of the hotel every day. Still, highly recommended.

Excellent location, good value, secure, helpful.Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Location, rate, reliability, security, simplicity. Efficiency.
Cons: Be clear whether room has a tub or a shower, if you care about that.
Location: Everything is accessible: Nevsky Prospect, the Maryinsky Theater (Kirov), metros, food, the Neva Embankment. It's great.
I've now stayed two times at the Petro Palace in St. Petersburg. The location is fabulous--just footsteps away from the imposing domes of St. Isaacs, around the corner from the luxury hotels Astoria of the Four Seasons, a block-and-a-half from a good metro, the Admiralteskaya. There are all kinds of food options from the regular corner convenience store to posh cafes to Subway, MacDonalds, to Russian typical Stolovaya where you can get good, hot meals with real Russian food for cheap (think of them as cafeterias). Nevsky Prospect is literally two blocks away, as is the Neva, The Bronze Horseman, and the Winter Palace (10 minutes). The hotel itself is simple, plain, basic, but comfortable. Also very quiet. I've had full reliability in everything i"ve needed, from business services to arranging airport transportation (reasonably priced) at 3:45 A.M. for early flights out. The rates are good. I paid less in 2013 working in SPB, than I paid in 2014, but that depends on when you catch it on Expedia. The room is basic, not fancy, but fine. The air conditioning works well,it's very clean, espec. the bathroom. Bathrooms have everything you need, a good tub (request a tub) nice fittings, etc. There is a pull-out clothesline over the tub which is convenient if you are on the road a long time (as I am) and need to wash things out. There's an electric tea kettle for tea and coffee, nicely supplied each day. It is NOT fancy. But it meets my needs & I"ll stay there again
