Back in 1970

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 17, 2013

My parents stayed here back in 1970 which the hotel was new - it had just been finished. At that time of course it was the Hotel Leningrad. They were attending a convention. They had great views of Saint Petersburg and the Cruiser Aurora but mostly what they marveled at was that women were doing all the construction work. They came by train so they did not need parking (which is available now), nor did they need free wi-fi (also available now). It is close to the train station and all the tourist attractions on the Neva River and they offer breakfast with the room.

rent an apartment

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 15, 2006

It's better to rent an apartment in the city: it can be old room with rarity furniture in the house built in 1919, another time - art studio or two levels room, so it depends on your wish. Such apartments can tell you more about russians and their customs more that you think. It's very easy: if you arrive to Moscow railway station there is many women coming there with yellow papers. Single/double apartments costs near 50-70 euros.

Avoid this hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 1, 2006

We have just stay in Hotel St Petersburg on the 24th to 27th May 06. We were disappointed with the service there. They Do Not care about service and they are trying to squeezes every dollar from the guest. 1st they charge for visa registration which the hotel in Moscow dose not. Secondly, we have to pay 80 Rub (US$3) per luggage when we leave it for 5 hrs (Never heard of for hotel guest). We paid US$135 for renovated room and bed sheet is dirty and it come with a malfunction 14inch TV???. We just want to highlight to future travelers of the kind of service they are expecting and if possible, avoid this hotel.

Great view over the Neva

If you're going to stay here, try to get a room facing out over the Neva.

This picture will give you an example.

Good affordable accommodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 23, 2005

The room we stayed in was unrenovated, but was good enough for us at the price. The hotel is close enough to the metro station and the St peter and paul fortress, and has various facilities.

Unique Quality: It was handy having a small post office inside the hotel, the restaurant was good, and the buffet breakfast went down a treat. All for $62 US a night for two people. We had a great view over the Neva from our room, as you can see from the photo of me outside the hotel.

An old Soviet-style hotel

by written on July 23, 2005

I didn't stay in this hotel, but visited it on two occasions. It's an old, big Soviet style hotel near Neva. The only thing that I really liked about the place was the stunning view of the river (if you get a room facing the river, of course). Otherwise the rooms were rather old and run-down and the whole atmosphere was not very upbeat.

Directions: Metro: Ploschad Lenina

A hostel right in the town center of St petersburg. Not expensive and clean rooms. Everything is verry clean and it's quiet in during the nights...

Unique Quality: lots of toilets, breakfast incluided, tv on your room (great to watch russian bands on mtv)
free water for everybody :-)
You have to buy the wodka yourself

City Realty Offerings

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 16, 2005

With limited hotels in St Pete, my son recommended that I find a place thru this CityRealty website .. and it worked out fine! I got a small apartment for $65/night which included a double bed, kitchenette, & bath. Plus it was close to downtown. It wasn't the fanciest place I've been too .. but then again with all the visiting I was doing .. all I needed was a place to put my head down at nite .. to gear up for the next day.

Hostel: ST-Petersburg; All Seasons, Russia.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 3, 2004

This is a very cheap hostel. I think I paid about 9 euro/night in July 2004, but when that is said then remember that sometimes quality and price do walk hand in hand. The toilet and bath facilities are acceptable, though not always very inviting. The beds… well it fells like sleeping on a park bench sometimes… the mattresses are not very thick at least, and if you are one of those people who attracts mosquitoes… well then prepare for the worst. I thought I was lucky to get a bed near the window… bad move, after two days I looked like something from a cartoon. When that is said then I have to add that it is located right next to a very beautiful park (park pobedy), just avoid the park at night since there are no lights at night. But all in all if you are not to critical about where to sleep then this place is good enough, but I recommend that you make an enquiry with the international hostel firstly.

Hostel: ST-Petersburg International Hostel, Russia

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 3, 2004

As a budget traveller who doesn’t want to pay 40 dollars for a bed to sleep in then hostels are a good alternative. One of the best in Petersburg is to my opinion the international hostel located in the centre of the city. The staff at the hostel is very friendly and speaks good English. The facilities seems quite good (remember this is Russia), the beds are comfortable and to top it off then they serve breakfast. One good way of getting to talk to the other travellers is during the breakfast, where you quickly can get tips and ideas of places to go and places not to go… and if you are lucky find someone to go with somewhere. But remember this is a hostel for better and for worse. But all in all this is a hostel that is worth staying at if you are a budget traveller.

by written on October 5, 2004

I rented an apartment from Serguei which was literally a few blocks from The Hermitage. It had a large double bed and 1 large living room with a sleeping couch so could easily fit 3 people.
Contact Serguei; his cell number is: 970 1849

Directions: Very close to the Hermitage and just of Nievsky Prospect (sp?).

ST PETERSBURG

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 16, 2004

Pros :
- A relatively cheap option (again, by Russian standard) in a very convenient location. It is within very short walking distance to the Moscow Train Station and two metro stations on different lines (Pl Vosstania and Moskovsky Vokzal). It is also very near to the end of the Nevsky prospekt, the major shopping street of St. Petersburg.
- Staff speak English
- Able to register the visa for you if you obtain the invitation letter from them.
- A good breakfast is provided.
- There is a travel agency at the hostel. If you fail at your attempts to buy train tickets by yourself at the train station (like having yet another Russian woman inexplicably yelling at you), you can always go to them for help, at a commission, of course.

Cons :
- If you did not already reserve several days in advance the number of days of your intended stay, you have to book a place every morning. Sometimes, you might be on the waiting list. On some mornings, I had to check out and leave my backpack in the locker, put my name on the waiting list and then head out to do some sight-seeing. It was only when I returned in the afternoon that I knew whether I had a spot that night.
- Unable to register the visa for you if you DID NOT obtain the invitation letter from them.

Directions: Opposite the Moscow Station is Hotel Oktyabrskaya. Walk along 1-ya Sovetskaya ulitsa. Turn left at the first turn and after two blocks, you will reach 3-ya Sovetskaya ulitsa. Turn right.

a great view over Aurora and the Nevabridges!

Make sure you get a Riverside room, and that's all - You wont be dissapointed. This hotel is not located next to the main street, but you get there easily and cheap by taking the red metroline (ca 600m from hotel). A taxi to the city costs about 4$. The hotel has what you need and is afordable!

Unique Quality: Great view!

Live with the Russians!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 26, 2003

It is so nice to share life with Russians, they are so generous and welcoming! It's possible to find a host family with whom you can stay. It's nice to say thank you by giving something that has some personal meaning, something you've done yourself...

Unique Quality: You feel like a special guest! You'll eat well and drink well too. I enjoyed tea like i've never done elsewhere, after a hot shower, i could drink litres. They put dried apricots inside so you have something to chew at when you've finished drinking.. love it!

Directions: Stay in the centre of the city.
