Centrally located with great breakfast!!!

Posted Apr 22, 2017
Hotel arranged taxi airport pick up. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Hotel has a nice vibe to it....antiques, paintings, oozes history. This hotel is well situated...ten minute walk to Hermitage and in close proximity to a variety of restaurants and across the street from 2 Georgian restaurants. If at The Marketplace...fast-food chain...look for the business lunch every day special, which includes soup, salad, drink and main, for as little as 250 roubles. We highly recommend it for its excellent breakfast and great coffee. Art Hotel Rachmaninov is a great choice.

Well located boutique hotel with atmosphere galore

Posted Sep 26, 2016 on Hotels
Excellent small hotel with great staff; a wonderful breakfast and location, location, location. Very comfortable large bed and staff with good English to help with small queries. Only gripe was the very erratic (and often non-existent) wi-fi.

A very over-rated hotel. Yes it has nice artwork in the halls but otherwise very basic. I paid extra for a comfort room and it had no place to sit and no desk - just a vanity and two dining room chairs. There is also no lift so you have to trudge up and down with your luggage (and there is no one to assist you). Breakfast was basic and a bit hit and miss. Wifi was patchy. I would not stay here again and I really don't understand all the hype about how fantastic this place is - it was definitely not my experience.

Very colorful historic hotel. Be prepared; there is no lift. Pleasant stay with nice breakfast. Be prepared if you shower in the morning as the water just stopped midway through my shower. The staff speaks English and was able to process the Russian visa invitation for us and also sent a taxi to the train station to pick us up.

Lots of character in a fantastic location!

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!

Great place at great price

Posted Mar 22, 2016 on Hotels
Best value for the price. Staff is super helpful. Very unique character of the hotel. Amazing location and decent sized rooms. Economy rooms are very small but comfort rooms are decent sized. Same is the case with bathroom. It would be good if bath tubs has curtains. I would highly recommend this place. Location is too good.

quirky independent hotel

Posted Sep 27, 2015 on Hotels
Great hotel, especially if you want something a little different Ideal location for walking to most tourist attractions. Our room faced the street which was relavely quiet but I can imagine it to be noisy at weekends. The breakfast was fine although not exceptional. Free internet and helpful staff. I would stay again.

Great quirky little hotel in the heart of the city

We loved our stay here. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the art is great fun. The rooms were quite large for the heart of the city. I would definitely stay there again.
