Disappointing hotel

Posted Aug 2, 2015 on Hotels
While the staff were very helpful and nice, despite their lack of English, I was immensely disappointed with the hotel for the following reasons: 1. Hotels.com did not mention it was on the 3rd floor of an old building, with no elevator. If I had known that, I would not have booked. 2. Entering the corridor of the hotel gives a terriblly claustrophobic and sleazy feeling. 3. Hotels.com wrongly marketed the hotel as being within one 1 km from all the major heritage places. Everything was at least a kilometer away, except the Metro and Railway stations. I wish Hotels.com and Altburg would be truthful.

Pros: Position, breakfast, clean.
Cons: Shower basin with wrong slope: it keeps several centimeters of water every time when a man uses it. They need to improve there English skills
Overall good hotel, nice position, 25 minutes of walk to Hermitage and close of the main subway stations. Some good restaurants on the secondary streets but also some grocery shops in the neighborhood.

To find this hotel you need to go throug the arch. It is located in one of the residential buildings. Overall nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms. Would recommend to stay here.

Great location

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Hostess, location and breakfast
Cons: More printed info for travellers......like how to use the remote, times when TV is not available, how to work the air conditioning. Those things
Location: Shopping, boat tours, hermitage, museums
This hotel is more like an apartment, with a hostess. And you have to carry your luggage up 4 flights of steps. But fabulous location to Nevsky Prospekt. This hotel is for travellers that spend most of their time out and about, not sitting in the room. Wonderful breakfast. The hostess was great; even though she knew little English. For travellers who are flexible and desire location at a reasonable price.....this is it.

3 nights at the Altburg St.Peterburg

Posted May 31, 2014
Pros: The inside and the location
Cons: Put in a lift. Paint the entrance and put in an obvious sign.
Location: HOHO bus stopped at the door; 250 metres to boat tour; 450 metres to train & metro; restaurants basically at the door; burger king across the street.
Inside the hotel was small but quite good. The entrance and flights of stairs were lousy. Staff were OK but English very mixed. The location was fantastic. The internet picture of the hotel is false advertising (not the hotel). Whether I recommend the hotel depends on who is asking.

Great location, everything else not impressive

Posted Jul 11, 2013 on Hotels
The good: Perfect location on Nevsky prospekt, a few minutes walk from everything a tourist might need: attractions, good restaurants (at decent prices - try Soviet Cafe), metro, mall, even the train station. While I found the hotel expensive for the service it offered, it was one of the least expensive in the area when I booked it. The not so good: none of the receptionists (who changed each day) spoke any English. The room pictures on the website are misleading. Only one room has a double bed, the other 5 rooms (standard) have two twin beds. We had to pay extra for the "comfort room" in order to have the double bed. While the room was very clean, the bathroom had a smell of humidity. The rooms are located on the 3rd floor of a regular apparent building and there is no elevator. I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for an excellent location and clean rooms at a good price.

Мал, да удал

К сожалению нет лифта :( отель находиться во внутреннем дворе невского проспекта. Вид, конечно, посредственный, зато тихо. Номера небольшие, но уютные. Понравилась администратор:) приветливая, отзывчивая. Есть небольшая кухонька, где можно сделать себе кофе, чай. Завтрак лёгкий - яйца, бутерброды, йогурт, чай-кофе. Осталось хорошее впечатление:)
