"Everything is good except the bathtub."
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 19, 2013
I was staying in a superior room with a double bed. My suite was very clean, with new furniture and nice modern bathroom. The color theme of the room was red + white. The room furniture had classical style. The water pressure in the shower was high, so I could shower fast and convenient. My big complain about the room was that the drainage of water in the bathtub was broken, and so water was going down very slowly and therefore I had to take shower half way up to my knees in dirty soapy water. Already the next day somebody came in to remove the part, which controls how fast water goes down, and so the problem disappeared. Also I did not appreciate the light switch system in my room: every time I had to switch randomly all the switches to find the right one. When nobody is in the room (the key card is not in the special slot), everything powers down (including electrical outlets), which saves energy but I could not charge my laptop while being away from my suite. The hotel is located in the center of the city with plenty of non expensive cafes around, including a pie place which (I think) works 24 hours a day. A subway station is about 5 minutes away from the hotel. Wi-Fi Internet worked just fine and was fast but it did require periodic reactivation of the connection.
"Pros: clean and nice, Cons: not everything worked."

The advantages of the hotel: the rooms are impressively clean and nice for the price. Everything in my room looked new and polished. The color theme of my room was green. The room had a double bed (actually 2 single bed put together with a double mattress merging them), 2 chairs, a table, an LCD TV on a wall in front of the bed (did not try to watch it), a large wardrobe, and a large mirror. The hotel is located very close to the famous Spas-na-krovi cathedral - it is almost around the corner. The walking distance to the nearest subway station ("Nevsky Prospekt") is about 10 minutes. The total time it takes to get to the airport Pulkovo-1 is about an hour (walk, line 2 of the subway, bus #39). Disadvantages: the room temperature control did not work - I tried to set the temperature to over 30C, but could not make my room any warmer (but it was pretty warm already). The water pressure in the shower cabin was low, so it was taking me longer than usual to take shower. The system of light switches in the room takes a few minutes to figure out. The first time I could not get into my room since the front desk forgot to activate my key card. The table in the room was not quite even, so my laptop was not wobbling while typing only in a specific orientation.

I stayed there 10 nights the second week on November 2012.
I had a great experience. The room was cleaned every day, was verified by another person. Everyone was friendly, courteous and professional.
Would stay here again.
above average hotel for business travel. Better than Holiday Inn in States... Internet service very weak in room however better in common areas. Impossible to pay partially for internet - (although the options would indicate otherwise). Severe mark-up on cab fare when ordering through hotel. Having said - for Russia it's probably better than average.
"Great hotel in ideal location"

This is a first class hotel in a wonderful location - walking distance to everywhere you want to be as a tourist. The staff is friendly and helpful and speak English! We upgraded for a minimal amount to a very large, comfortable room with a street view - we heard no noise. Breakfast was included with this room - well worth it. We definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in St. Petersburg.
"Great location. Very close to the metro."

People in the hotel were very friendly. The swimming pool and sauna were just as good as any 5 star hotel in the US. Free use of computer in the lobby was great. Breakfast was excellent with all different kinds of food.

The hotel offers sauna on premise and free pass to the 12 types of saunas & steamrooms in its sister hotel (Sokos Bridge, 10 min walk). The staff is helpful & friendly and mostly fluent in English. The hotel lobby is not impressive but rooms are clean and adequate. The neighborhood is good and safe. Hotel is reasonably close(30 min. walk) to all usual touristic sites. You can also take public transportations to everywhere. The metro is about 15 mins away. Buses number 7, 10, 11, & 24 are at the intersection of 8 Linya and Bolshoy Prospect next to the hotel.
There are many shops and restaurants nearby. Several 24 hrs stores are nearby and one is just adjacent to it. You should also explore the restaurants in the neighborhood. Particularly a Russian restaurant “Russian Kitch” (25 Universiteskaya Naberezhnaya, 10 mins walk) and a Georgian restaurant Kafe KAHAPEUKA located in an alley off of the street right behind the hotel. lso do not miss the open bazaar in the street behind the hotel with brick oven bakery, fruit stand and a souvenir shop that gives you one of the best prices. For transportation to and from airport call city cab companies ahead of time and make reservation for pick up. It will cost you almost half of the cost of getting a taxi from the airport. However, if you have an early flight you should know that the bridges on your side of the city are not useable before 5:15 am. The hotel is very good value and we will certainly stay there again.
