St.Petersburg without a huge price tag!
Posted Sep 12, 2016 on Hotels
The Hotel is NOT easy to find, even if you've worked out it's at the back of a courtyard. The sign shares space with a 24 hour Shop that deals in ehm adult content, so it's easy to get confused there. The hotel shares a building with the Anabel Hotel (it takes up the 2nd, 4th & 5th floors, the Nevsky Contour has the 3rd). A small lift takes you, and your baggage to the front door. The hotel itself is almost flawless. Good rooms, shower (no bath in my room)and a huge 3D TV that you can get films free of charge from reception (not that you'll have time to - this is St.Petersburg!!). None of the TV channels are in English though. If you can get past the seedy locale (there's also a 'Mens Club' called Don Juan directly opposite), the Nevsky Contour is right at the heart of St.Petes at a price that won't break the bank.
