Lots of character in a fantastic location!

5 out of 5
by from Cleveland
Posted May 15, 2016
Pros: Convenient location, overall character and charm, friendliness and helpfulness of staff
Location: The hotel is located right in the historic district, close to everything
Art-Hotel Rachmaninov definitely exceeded our expectations. It is located in the historical district within walking distance of everything. I loved the fact that it is in the upper floors of a regular building and felt like we were in a "local" flat. The art that fills the hallways was lovely, and our room had the perfect balance of modern conveniences and old-world charm. The family 2-bedroom suite we stayed in was perfect for our family of four. The staff were extremely nice and helpful with giving us tips, directions, and making restaurant reservations for us. The breakfast room was full of charm and the food perfect for getting us ready for our daily excursions. We had a wonderful stay!

Pros: Staff, oversized bath, location
Cons: Breakfast wasn't great, head to the bakery round the corner.
Location: All the main tourist attractions are nearby or a 20 min walk away.
We had a nice stay here, the location could not be better, the room was very clean which is all I ever really want in a hotel.

Quirky but welcoming

They take their support of art seriously and have built a warm and welcoming hotel. Yes, it's a bit quirky (internal stairwell, bold decoration, double electronic security doors). But, the staff were welcoming and accommodating, the room was clean, and the location is great for metro/top sights/dining & drinking. I liked the history of the place and enjoyed the decor. Very happy with my stay.

Antique hotel with good location

Quite a pleasant experience as the hotel runs like a gallery with lots of antique furniture. Carrying my luggage for 2 floors was painful. Location right next to Kazan cathedral and 10 mins walk to Winter Palace only. Lots of restarants nearby.

Pros: close to everything
Cons: variety of breakfast
The hotel is quite close to everything...churches, the Hermitage, canals, station restaurants etc. The hotel is accessed via stairs, which would make disabled access complicated. The staff speak excellent English and were very helpful with queries, We would return.

This place is unique, I have previously stayed in modern run of the mill "square block" hotels at places like Moscow, but the Art hotel Rachmaninov is like a small museum, and it gives you the true feeling of being in St Petersburg.

Overall Impression

5 out of 5
by from London
Posted Dec 13, 2013
Pros: In a word - character.
Cons: I think my only slight criticism would be the bland breakfast, but that shouldn't detract from my overall impression.
Hotel was handily situated within walking distance of all the main St Petersburg tourist spots. Being off the main Nevsky Prospeckt, probably the main road of the capital, it was extremely quiet. Not much imagination went into the continental breakfast, but it was adequate. Hotel staff were all extremely helpful and wanted to speak English at every opportunity. I think it's fair to say that I have never stayed in a hotel of the same character as Art Rachmaninov, but I'll leave the surprise until you get there!

We enjoyed a short stay at the hotel. The staff were helpful. It is a little eccentric but the location and price are both ver good.
