Nice hotel away from the tourist throngsPosted Sep 11, 2017
Pros: Location, location, location! It felt like home after a couple of nights there.
Cons: The hot water wasn't quite hot one morning, but otherwise everything was great.
Location: Close to the Fortress, Strelka, university, stadium and ice arena. Lots of public transport options. Interesting market nearby on Sytnynskaya ul.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tradition Hotel. It was clean, comfortable, attractive and affordable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff spoke well English, and were able to give us useful tips on where to buy specific items and interesting places to eat. The location was perfect for us, being central to the districts where we wanted be as well as a short bus ride (or longer walk) from the Palace Square and the Historic centre of St. Petersburg. The proximity to the Fortress and Alexander Park made for pleasant evening strolls. There are lots of nice restaurants and cafes in the neighbourhood, as well the stores where Locals shop. If you want to spend time among the Russian people rather than the tourists, this is a better choice of hotel than those on or near Nevsky Prospekt.

Great stay for price!Posted Jul 13, 2016 on Hotels
Great location! Great staff! Very clean albeit dated hotel. If you are looking for spacious but not pricey and ok with not luxurious this is your place. Vey roomy and beds were ok too. Breakfast was good but not the best, but the staff took so much care in making it beautiful from the China to the tablecloths. I would not get with breakfast and eat elsewhere. Location phenomenal and very very clean!

Great!Posted May 15, 2016 on Hotels
Great hotel, right across the river from the Winter Palace, and right by Sts. Peter and Paul fortress. Beds were European style - with two twin mattresses put together, though.

Great location - but a little noisyPosted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels
Location: It is only a 20 minutes walk to the main sites of the city, Peter+Paul fortress is a 5 min walk away; Rooms are clean, ok in size and quality; Staff: Very freindly and helpful; The choice of breakfast was not plentiful but ok; Unfortunatley, the rooms were quite noisy during the night as they face to the main street

Nice big room at a good pricePosted Oct 28, 2013 on Hotels
We stayed at Tradition hotel in October. It was very cool but we were lucky and missed the rain. The Hotel needs a modern revamp, but it still nice anyway. The bed was big, we stayed on level 1 and had fresh water, tea and coffee supplied to us daily. St Petersburg seems to be under renovation while we were there and this is true of the neighbourhood around the hotel. The hotel was about a 30 minute walk from the train stations. (the one where you catch the train to/from Helsinki and the one where you catch the train to Moscow we walked to both). It is 15 minute walk to Peter and Paul Fortress and about a 20 minute walk to Neveski prospect and Winter Palace. The staff were all friendly and the shower products include soap, shampoo and conditioner. It includes wifi, but we did not use as someone else mentioned being hacked while using wifi in Russia. We thought it was good value for what we got.
