Just what I was hoping for
Posted Jun 3, 2013
This hotel was just what I was hoping for. Its in a great location to walk to the major attractions. Hermitage, Russian Museum, Church Of The Spilled Blood, etc. There is a 24 hour cafe on the first floor of the building and a 24 hour store right across the street.
We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, but the the hotel workers kept it really clean. The people at the front desk were helpful whenever we had a question and called to confirm our ride to the airport for us.
This hotel is in no way a 5 star resort. The rooms were not huge, they had just the basics, however it was very clean. the breakfast was adequate and the employees friendly. so if your looking for a clean room in a great location, for the price you cannot beat this hotel.
A couple of notes for travelers. This hotel is not in a tourist hot spot so when you walk out the door you feel like your seeing the real St. Petersberg. On the opposite side of the hotel... the opposite side of the 24 hour cafe... you can experience the real St. Petersberg. 3 metro stops at opposite corners insure there is a steady flow of commuters. there are plenty of places to eat. And if you go about a block in any direction you will find McDonald's, grocery stores, malls and outdoor markets.
Make sure you see the Hermitage, Church of the Spilled Blood, Peterhof and see an opera or ballet if you can get tickets.
