decent place, good location

Posted Nov 6, 2016 on Orbitz
if you just want a place to sleep, this place is quite good, as it is in a good location and cheap. Wi-fi worked OK, the bed could be more comfortable. Despite all the minor shortcomings, as long as you don't expect too much you will be fine.

Hotel was not very nice. Each room has an individual drainage pump and it can be loud at night. Breakfast is not good. I didn't expect a lot, but for the price there are much better hotels.

Good for a couple of nights

Posted Jun 3, 2013
Pros: Location was good if you don't mind a 15-20 minute walk to Nevsky Prospect.
Cons: Nothing, average mid-range european hotel.
Location: Right off one of the main canals, good location. Good British Pub with a nice outside eating/drinking area outside.
Not a bad hotel, it's pretty typical for Russia/Saint Petersburg. They're trying! Room was pretty clean, bathroom fine, clean linens. One would never guess a hotel is located in the building that it was in but then again that's pretty typical in Russia. Mid-range, your not paying for 5 star accommodations. My windows faced a busy street and with the window open at night could hear cars passing at night but nothing overly distracting for sleep. Breakfast, breads sliced meats, basic, not too bad. Good location right off one of the main canals. Not far from plenty of good locations. Saint Peters is a good city to walk in and the metro is also not far from the hotel. Pretty decent for a couple of nights, would stay there again. It's Russia so don't expect much from the staff. Seemed like the one person I saw working there never left the desk.

Posted May 8, 2013

Not satisfied

Posted Jul 2, 2009 on Hotels
The facade is the only nice thing about the hotel. Overpriced for what was available. Breakfast was poor at best. Rooms are tiny and very noisy (and no AC so also very hot when windows closed for silence) Personnel was nice and helpful, though. Location was good. City is fantastic!

Breakfast is a paper bag of packaged tea, jam, instant coffee, instant oatmeal. Room looked reasonably clean, but had an unpleasant odor.

Pure horror

Posted Sep 22, 2017
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Check what you offer
Location: Big street, noisy, bad smell, much exaust fume not a nice place, long way to center...........
I expected no Grandhotel, but 3 stars as Expedia has indicated. However, there are 0 stars. The Rinaldi is not a hotel for international tourists. I am very annoyed by the time spent researching better and longer. the room had a rotten moodern smell like an old ship. In the bathroom I got space. When water ran was a very loud sound from a water pump. Very noisy is the street, cause of the cheap windows. The mattress from the bed was a disaster, old, grubby, disgusting, disgusting. The carpet was of the quality like sandpaper. Everything was disgusting and I did not feel comfortable for a second. It is a dark backyard hotel, as in a bad Crimean film. How can they dare to take over any information about the hotel for their offer without checking. I will never book again on Expedia and am disappointed without end.
