Perfect location to sights

Posted May 23, 2015
This hotel is in a good location only 10 minutes walk to Nevsky Prospekt the main street and 15 minutes to the Hermitage. Hotel staff were helpful, friendly and spoke english and sorted out any issues quickly - safe was broken in room and didnt replenish soap on daily basis. Room was very clean. St Petersburg is easy to walk around and get to the main sights. If you want to do a boat trip up the Neva or canal trip they have certain times for the English commentary so check times otherwise will be in Russian and you can make up your own commentary like we did which was a laugh. Peterhof, the Hermitage and Church of Spilled Blood are a must. Worth going into the Church of Spilled Blood as havent seen anything like it before. Also worth getting to the Hermitage early say about 945am opens at 1030 as queues are horrendous.

Quiet central hotel

Posted Jun 15, 2014
Pros: Situation - very close to major sights and transport links, but away from the noise of traffic. An ideal base for a (too) short visit to St P
Cons: It was quite difficult to find the hotel on the first day, better directions would be a help. The hot water tank took a bit of working out.
Location: The Arkadia is based on the Moika River, so right in the heart of things. The Hermitage is just a few minutes walk away, metro is also close by.
The Arkadia is ideally situated in a quiet courtyard very close to Nevski Prospect and the Hermitage. The room was very comfortable although the hot water was a bit quirky. Very good breakfast with plenty of choice. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Great Hotel!

Posted Sep 30, 2013
Pros: Great Staff, Great Location, Great Room
Cons: the taxi driver had a hard time finding it...
Location: Everything is nearby, you are only 5 minutes to the Hermitage and other sites, also Nevsky street is a short walk.
The hotel is in fantastic location and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They gave me directions in good English and told me what to visit and see. They helped me with transportation issues, and made good suggestions on where to visit, and even where are good bars. My room was very nice and the food at the hotel was also good. The city is amazing and like something out of time.

Idealer Ausgangspunkt für eine Stadtbesichtigung

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Wir waren rundum zufrieden mit dem Hotel. Die Zimmer waren komfortabel eingerichtet. Das Hotelpersonal war sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich (Restaurant-Tipps einschließlich Tisch-Reservierung, Hilfe beim Online-Check-In für den Rückflug, Taxi-Bestellung). Das Frühstück war ausgezeichnet (auf Bestellung frische Pancakes, Omelettes etc.).

Petit hôtel, très bien situé.

Posted Aug 17, 2016
Accueil chaleureux et ambiance agréable. Personnel à l'écoute, parlant anglais. Copieux petit déjeuner, belle chambre, petit bémol pour la luminosité, il faut allumer les lumières presque en continu. L'emplacement de l'hôtel est idéal, on peut tout faire à pied mais on n'est pas sur une grande artère, ce qui permet d'être au calme, dans une arrière cour. Conseil: n'oubliez pas votre parapluie!

Schöner Aufenthalt

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Location: Super-Lage
Das Hotel liegt günstig, viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuß erreichbar - Metrostationen liegen weit auseinander - da ist das von Vorteil. IM Hotel alles ansprechend, gut, Früstück (Büffet) gut, Hotel liegt im Hof, womit Aussicht nicht attraktiv ist, mein Zimmer im 1.Stock erlaubte mir nicht einmal zu sehen, ob der Himmel bewölkt ist, war aber nicht tragisch. Ich kann Hotel empfehlen, gerne wieder. U.U ist Frühstücksraum voll (Sonntag) und Wartezeit entsteht. Visumzwang für Westeuropäer (meine Kosten mit Reisepflichtversicherung € 140) ist schade und hindert offenbar viele zur Reise nach St. Petersburg, da schneidet sich die russische Verwaltung wohl ins eigene Fleisch, nur politisches Bestemm von wegen Gegenseitigkeit. St. Petersburg ist eine tolle Stadt, leider sind die Werke der Impressionisten der Eremitage derzeit nicht zu sehen (Umbau/Zubau). Tipp: Mittwoch ist die Eremitage bis 21.00 geöffnet (normal 18.00) und ab 18.00 gab es keine Gruppen mehr, Eintrittskarten beim Automaten kaufen statt anstellen!!! Peterhof (Anreise mit Tragflügelboot) und Katherinenpalast (Anreise Metro + Sammeltaxi) sehr sehenswert.

Value for money

Posted Apr 17, 2015
Pros: Price/Quality - very good
Location: Close to every tourist attraction in the city really in a walking distance from famous theaters, cathedrals, museums.
Perfect location and good comfort for very attractive price. Very little noise from outside and inside is huge plus. Clean large room with everything needed as expected at the 3- to 4-star hotel.

Hotel simpático

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: O quarto tranquilo e a proximidade com grande parte das atrações.
Cons: Os garçons falarem inglês
Location: Por ser perto da avenida Nevisk, você tem alem das atrações que ficam ao longo, muitas opções de restaurantes, lojas e serviços diversos
O hotel é muito bom. Não tem grandes sofisticações, mas é confortável e adequado para quem quer conhecer bem São Petersburgo e vai ao hotel praticamente só para dormir. Fica bem próximo ao Hermitage (4 quadras) e à avenida Nevisk. Mesmo estando próximo do centro, fica num local tranquilo. Os recepcionistas são atenciosos e falam inglês. A gente tem um pouco de dificuldade com os garçons o que é normal na Russia pois, fora o pessoal ligado ao turismo, pouca gente fala inglês.
