Great tourist hotel in downtown St. Petersburg
Posted Sep 8, 2016 on Hotels
Nevsky forum was a very nice trip for us. It is very close to the Moscovskaya train station and right on top of Mayakovskaya metro station, not to mention being right on Nevsky Prospekt! The location was perfect for exploring the museums and tourist locations in the city. The staff at the front desk were exceptionally friendly and helpful; they have good recommendations, are very polite, speak some English, and let us leave our luggage after checkout until our overnight train left. The complimentary hot breakfast is not great (the American breakfast comes with French fries and cold baked beans, hah!) but the Russian foods in the buffet make up for it (good blini). The servers in the restaurant were very kind, with prompt service, and spoke English (well enough to bring my husband some Tabasco for his eggs). The room was exceptionally spacious and very comfortable, quiet and had free fast wifi. However we didn't spend much time in the hotel since Nevsky Prospekt has so much to do close by, with a lot of good bars, restaurants and cafes within a few blocks.
