Not as promoted

Posted Jun 24, 2014 on Hotels
Was not a hotel, but a B&B. Room did not 'overlook the city' instead a courtyard, noisy with dogs, people and cars, ok with windows closed. 'Private kitchen' was shared, clean and adequate, breakfast supplied in a paper bag for each. The 12 sq metres included the bathroom, wardrobe and huge ceramic heater. No a\c or other ventilation without opening the windows. The twin beds were worn on one side in the middle due to nowhere else to sit, most uncomfortable, like sleeping on the side of a hill. Other rooms may be better, old building, narrow hallways and stairs but very clean, English very limited but staff helpfull. Metro, banks and food shops all nearby. Be carefull at night when walking the local streets. Use of Wi-Fi also questionable, maybe ok if competent in Russian.

Rinaldi Olympia Saint Petersburg.

Posted May 15, 2013
The hotel is located very close to the downtown on the quite street. The Palace square and Hermitage museum are in 30 minutes of walking. The hotel staff is friendly and speaks English enough well. Rooms and kitchen are clean. I recommend the hotel for staying in Saint Petersburg.

This "hotel" is a pitiful excuse for a warehouse converted to a rooming house. Beds were the military army beds that are about 2 feet wide. Environment is horrible outside the hotel. I am used to travelling and went to many countries. I have stayed in many hotels, and have not had as a negative experience as this one!

Fine budget accommodations

OK for a glorified youth hostel. In line with the general price level in the two Russian capitals, you'll pay twice than what you would for a similar level of comfort in Tallinn or Prague. Service and safety were satisfactory, and the staff very friendly; just don't expect more than a youth hostel.

Very Comfortable

Posted Apr 1, 2009
Hotel Olympia was a very good place to stay, even for a first time visitor to St. Petersburg. The room was very spacious, the beds comfortable, and at night the surrounding city was very quiet. They offered a very good breakfast each morning and had good cable TV in the room. The staff arranged a private tour guide for me and ordered a taxi to take me to the airport. The only problem was that the phone in my room had a bad connection, making it difficult to talk to people, but it was only a minor inconvenience. This hotel was very affordable and would recommend it to anyone.

Неплохой доступный отель в центре

Posted Oct 2, 2016 on Hotels
Плюсы: ванная комната в номере, кофе и круасаны утром. Минусы: плохая звукоизоляция, слабый сигнал вайфая.
