    Azimut Hotel 3* (VTer bugulma review)

    by

    The hotel is part of the chain Azimut http://en.azimuthotels.com/
    The hotel is located not in the central part of the city and quite in distance to the nearest metro station. Thus, they often suggested good price (see their special offers section).
    The hotel was renovated several years ago (it has name Sovetskaya) - I stayed lately and before restoration, - the hotel has major changes in interior.

    Directions: Metro Tekhnichesky Universitet

    The Sovetskaya is located a fair way from the centre of St Petersburg - in an area with little of note to visit, or little by way of places to go and eat. We did not explore the nightclub which is on the 6th floor or part of the hotel - which appears to be quite popular. The in-house Italian restaurant, which served a range of pizzas at affordable prices with a great view over the city on the 13th floor was popular with guests. The buffet breakfast was reasonable, although nothing really to enthuse about - the coffee was certainly not to be recommended.

    The rooms are comfortable, clean and well-appointed - apart from the beds - the hotel still uses sheets and blankets - meaning that summer nights can be either too hot or too cold. Worst of all though, the pillows were exceptionally uncomfortable - and there was no choice or hard/soft pillows - I had really problems sleeping as a result.

    The staff were helpful, the hotel secure and facilities were good enough, although the 3* rating of the accommodation, whilst in-keeping with Russian 3* hotels, would have struggled to be classed as 3* elsewhere.

    Directions: South west of the main touristy area - about 30 minutes walk to St Isaacs - and 10 minutes from the nearest Metro station.

    Hotel Sovetskaya

    by

    The 18-stored building is located on the River Fontanka and on the crossroad of Rizsky Prospekt and Lermontovsky Prospekt.
    The hotel has 976 rooms. The one we had was a comfortable, elegantly furnished two-bed-room with a bathtub, a shower, WC, Telephone, TV and a great view over the roofs of St. Petersburg.

    Unique Quality: I felt very safe in the hotel. There were concierges on every floor and at the entrance were guards

    Hotel Sovetskaya

    by

    The hotel complex is situated in the very center of Saint-Petersburg on the Fontanka river embankment and at the intersection of two main thoroughfares - Rizhsky and Lermontovsky prospects, whichallow our guests to have pleasent walks over the historical center of the city along its rivers and canals. From the 18th floor of the hotel there is a beatufil view on St. Isaac's and Holy Trinity cathedrals, St. Nicole church, the most famous St. Petersburg theater - Mariinsky and Fontanka riverside and bridges.

    Unique Quality: From the railway stations situated nearby - Baltiysky, at 800m, and Varshavsky, 1200m, - you will be able to get to the famous surburbs : Petrodvorets, Orienbaum, Gatchina. The distance to the "Pulcovo" International Airport is 20 km. For the most comfortable travelling around the city, you can rent a car with the driver from the hotel. The Hotel has a big and convenient parking area.

    Directions: Two underground stations - "Baltiyskaya" and "Tekhnologichesky Institute" - are situated 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

Russia for Girls

by mullally1982

Me and my girlfriend (we are a lesbian couple) traveled from Moscow to Ekaterinburg, and on to Volgograd. The trip was amazing. We were abit worried about traveling without male company, but I must say Russia is one of the friendliest an "un-touristy" places I`ve ever been. It is a big advantage to know some Russian. Outside of Moscow we met noone who spoke English.
I found Moscow very stressful and expensive. It was the least pleasant city we visited. Our next stop was Kazan, the capital of the Reapublic of Tatarstan. I highly recommend Kazan. It`s an old, beautiful and exotic city with a mix of Tatars and Russes living there. The atmosphere was far more relaxed than in Moscow. Kazan offers great mosques, and is the muslim center of Russia. It`s a great place to relax and stroll about. This city has some stunning sights, including the UNESCO listed Kreml.

Our next stop was Ekaterinburg. We were told that it was situated in the Ural mountains, but we never saw a glimpse of them. Nevertheless; Ekaterinburg is a very pleasant and chilled city. It has a very western feeling to it. It`s easy to find western food, as there`s plenty of Irish pubs there. I recommend going to the Altay building. There you can take a lift and see the city from the rooftop. It`s quite stunning. There`s plenty of theaters all around the city, and evn though you don`t understand Russian opurtunity to catch local theater-troops. A great place (although hard to find) to stay is the guesthouse called Academy of Geology. It`s peaceful and has beautiful rooms.

From Ekaterinburg we went south to Ufa. Ufa is the capital of the Republic of Bashkortostan. Ufa was quite hard to get around, but it is still worth a visit. You can visit one of Lenin`s homes and spot some unique architecture. The atmosphere in Ufa is, like in Kazan, very different from the Russian cities. I highly recommend the Azimut hotel (Bus stop Gore Moskva). It`s a business hotel with great standard and a friendly staff.

On to Volgograd. Volgograd is probably one of the most beautiful cities I`ve been to. Situated on the banks of the Volga river with an almost tropical climate, it almost feels like you`re in Greece. This is a city of history. The name Stalingrad might ring a bell... The most stunning thing to see in Volgograd is the huge Mother Russia statue. It`s the highest statue in the world (72 m). It`s an unbelievable sight when you compare it to a church that stand beside it. It looks more like a dolls church. I also recommend the Stalingrad Battle museum, and the Volga river cruises. There are plenty of offers. Volgograd was really easy to get around in. The city center is quite small, and it`s easy to navigate because of the river. The Volgograd Hotel is cheap and amazing.

We had a wonderful time in Russia. My girlfriend knows some Russian and that came in extremely handy. We got quite used to people looking at us, but we never felt threatened or harassed. The most common comment we got from other women was that we were brave to travel by ourself.
One thing that is difficult however, is buying train tickets. You will need to write down the information for the train you are going on, how many tickets you need, and what kind of cupee you want. And prepare for long lines. It might take hours to get your tickets. We always went in a 4-people compartment. It was a great way to travel. We shared compartment with so many different people, and it was a great way to get to know Russians. It`s important to bring some food or beverage to share.

Girls; go to Russia. It is a fascinating place....
