The Annex of the October Hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 20, 2008

On our second trip to St. Petersburg, we stayed at the October Hotel, not the main building but another building across the Vosstanya Square. At first I thought we got in through a side entrance because it was so modest but then quickly realized that the grand entrance must be in the main building and there's just a small reception area here and that's that.

Even though the building has seen its better days, our stay was quite ok, just a bit nightly disturbance from the noisy traffic of Nevsky Prospekt. The room was quite high and airy but rather shabby as you can see in the picture. However, everything one needed was there and the beds were ok. Besides, the service was quick and friendly both at the reception and the breakfast salon.

Unique Quality: Excellent location! This is the best quality of this hotel.

Directions: The hotel is conveniently located opposite the Moskovskaya Railway Station and near the Mayakovskaya/Ploshshad Vostaniya metro station.

Oktyabrskaya has a 'filial' diagonally opposite the main building across Ploschad' Vosstaniya, entry from Ligovskii Prospekt. This is a little cheaper than the main hotel and was renovated sometime around 2001/2. The rooms are comfortable and the whole place is very European.

Unique Quality: Both parts of the hotel are only a few minutes' walk from the metro station Ploschad' Vostanniya. You can get to Mayakovskaya metro without having to cross Nevskii.

It's also directly opposite Moskovskii Vokzal, the station for trains heading in the Moscow direction.

The worst of the east?

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 27, 2004

I hated this place - I had been on a trip last summer (2003) to Minsk, St. Petes, Moscow and Odessa - but the Oktyabrskaya was the most unpleasant hotel. We stayed in the 'annexe' - perhaps that was the problem - in rooms meant to be renovated - but they were spartan apart from the company of mosquitos. Breakfast was dreadful too with little choice but stale bread.

Going to the Pribaltiskaya this year - will let you know how that goes.

Directions: Near Moscow station - nicely placed - but that's its only good point.

Staying at the Oktyabrskaya

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 22, 2004

It's relatively good value I think. I paid about $50 US for a pretty good single room, and there are good facilities. I was bothered by some of the sex workers plying their trade in the hotel, but after I complained to the floor lady I had no problems. The location is really good too, very close to the metro station and to the Moscow train station.

It is a good hotel in the city-center, in front of the Moscow train station. Ligovsky crossed by Nevsky. I went walking from there to everywhere.
Note the writing on top of the hotel. It means: "Hero City Leningrad"

Oktabrskaya Hotel

by written on August 25, 2002

$75US per night.

Unique Quality: Very handy if are getting off a train from Moscow. Comfortable, generously sized rooms, no restaurant. I was not impressed with the breakfast as there were too many people waiting in the queue and we had at least 15 minutes for our turn.

Directions: Ligovsky Prospect, opposite the Moscow train station.
