A good locftion and frriendly staff . As for me,there are two bad points - low lights in the room and window is not open in the room. The rest was GREAT!Genuine Expedia guest review
"PERFECT LOCATION - GOOD PRICE - MUST PAY 4 WI-FI"
PERFECT LOCATION - GOOD PRICE - BE PREPARED FOR "NICKEL/DIME" ADD-ONS Must pay for Wi-Fi in room, 450 RUB for 24 hours - Two small bottles of water on check-in, no more, so prepare to pay for drinking water Caution One: Only two electrical outlets even in delux rooms - had to ask for two extension cords to operate CPAP machines and charge computers […] and iPhones Caution Two: Low-watt lighting = dark room - could use one more floor lamp - can be depressing :( Caution Three: Loud fan for pumping A/C or heat - earplugs for sleeping recommended Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Petro Palace Rocks!"
This hotel is located right off Nevski Prospect. It is right near a metro, good restaurants, near the Hermitage...just a perfect location. The hotel is very clean, the staff is very good (the consierge staff is world class), and I would return here without question.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful honeymoon"
A must for anyone going to St. Petersburg. The hotel is within walking distance of almost everything. The staff are very polite and most speak English fluently. The hotel's location made my wife and I's honeymoon wonderful, because we could just walk to anywhere we wanted to visit. Heads up though, the mosquitos in St. Petersburg can be murder, and […] there are no screens on the windows of the hotel. All in all, me and the wife want to stay here again when we return someday.

"Good location but do not expect a great room"
The hotel is located in waking distance from the Hermitage and Isaac's Cathedral, which are places one must see in St. Petersburg. From the lobby the hotel looks modern and elegant but our room was far from that. Pipes were out in the wall and the carpet was not very clean. In addition, you will have to wait for a long time since there is just one single […] elevator in each part of the hotel (it is comprised of two buildings joined).

"Good value for your money"
The best asset is its location since it's only 2 blocks away from the Hermitage & the Metro station is a block away. There are 2 restaurants across the street ; a McDonaldd & an excellent Asian fusion restaurant near the Metro station. The rooms though clean are very spartan & the air conditioning did not work properly while we were there. No CNN on […] its TV but we got BBC. City taxi to the airport cost 1300 Rubles for a 30 minute drive. The hotel has its own taxi service for 1700 Rubles. Staff was friendly & spoke English . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great Location and easy access to all the main touristic attractionsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location poor service"
Location of hotel was excellent in relation to museums and night life. Was not greeted and check in. Room was clean but needed renovation and new mattress, 2nd night saw a large water bubble in the wall paper where the AC was leaking. When we checked out we had the bellman store 4 pieces of luggage until our train left later that afternoon I tipped […] them $7 and they walked away complating about a small tip. Bar staff was excellent and helpfull. I would only recommend this hotel due to its close location to museums but if you dont mind walking look for a better hotel.

"best location to st petersburg sights"
Charming hotel, needs a little updating, but overall a very nice place to stay and convenient to Hermitage and Russian Museum. Staff are very helpful, smiling, and concierge found great restaurants and transportation for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel in the center"
The location is perfect, it's right in the center but a block away from the busy Nevsky prospect. We were there in July and the city was very lively almost all night long with lots of people strolling along Nevsky and embankment or taking night canal and river boats. Since the metro closes shortly after midnight it was easy to walk to the hotel even […] at night. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby. We used wi-fi in the downstairs lobby, but on a few occasions couldn't connect at all. The hotel claims to have a climate control in every room and we had a control panel in our room, but for some reason it didn't matter what temperature we selected, the thermometer always showed 71 degrees. After a hot day we would've liked it to be a little cooler but it was better then nothing. Overall we had a pleasant experience and would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to everything"
Was walking distance to everything. Highly recommend this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent. I would definitely stay at the Petro Palace Hotel on my next trip to St Petersburg. It's a three minute walk from Nevsky Prospect, the main street, a great location yet on a quiet street. A ten minute walk from the Hermitage Museum.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dial up Internet"
I was traveling in SPB for business. The in-room Internet was so SLLLLLLLOOOOOWWWW. So slow that I could hardly do basic email tasks let alone do anything with video or media. It's small things like this that can actually hurt the overall experience. Aside from that the Internet was at a 15 euro cost per day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well dserved 4 star hotel in the city center"
Perhaps best price per value in town. Major attractions of St. Petersburg in walking distance. Very nice and competent service. Eveything well renovated and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, helpful staff"
The entire staff was pleasant and totally accommodating. We arrived ahead of check-in time and were given our rooms right away -- 4 hours ahead of schedule! Wonderful. We asked for recommendations for restaurants and were very pleased with the suggestions. The breakfast buffet had many selections including fresh fruit and and an option to order eggs […] the way you preferred them to be cooked. We found the location very convenient and easily walked to many of the sights. Our bathroom had a shower only -- no bathtub -- a drawback after long days of hiking around the city, but that was a minor inconvenience. The room was a no frills affair, large and simply furnished, but it suited our needs. We didn't spend much time in the hotel. The mattress could use some updating, but we slept well. After we checked out, my son realized he had left his headphones behind and rushed back to retrieve them. The staff helped him find them. We would definitely return.

"Petro Palace Hotel"
As everyone notes, an excellent location, especially in the winter when the sidewalks can be difficult. You are very close to everything. The staff is responsive and knowledgeable. The full breakfast was fantastic. Pool, exercise room, sauna, hot tub, and the Sky Bar were all first-rate. The rooms were large and comfortable, and given how warm every […] indoor space in St. Petersburg is kept in the winter, it is a blessing that the windows open. Great place.

"Nice, clean and good service Hotel"
I stayed in the hotel for 1 night. Inside the hotel was clean. But the room was a little bit not bright enough. They may need to install more lights in the room. It has got WIFI service in the entire hotel but there was some charge for use. The best thing of the hotel is the location. The location of the hotel is every conveient. It took only 5 minutes […] walk from the Metro Station and it was easy to be found. Staff were polite and could spoke simple english. Information of tour provided by the hotel was enough for us. We were satisfied during the stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Pros: -breakfast was great -beautiful building -room was very large -let us BYOB in the Sky Bar Cons: -in room wifi is not free -wifi in common areas was slow -no slippers -gym is only free in the morning -no in-room coffee/tea I would stay here again, but will probably go to a Radisson Sofia because it is […] newer.

"Petro Palace Hotel"
The hotel is within a convenient walk to the Hermitage. There are a number of restaurants in the area of the hotel. The spa is relatively small, but does have a jacuzzi and sauna. Internet is available for a charge. It seemed that the rooms were too warm and I was unable to decrease the temperature in my room except for opening a window. The main train […] station is about 10 minutes and the international airport is 45 minutes by taxi. The staff were very helpful and many of them spoke English very well.

"Central and Comforatable"
You can't beat the location for this hotel. Half a block from St. Isaac's Cathedral, two blocks from the Admiralty, the Hermitage and Nevsky Prospekt with a bus stop half a block away. The hotel itself was very clean, with friendly reception and a round the clock security guard. My room was decently sized with all everything I needed. My only two complaints […] that the windows opened into an interior lobby which got noisy at times. Also the room was pretty warm even in the cool November weather, most likely because of the lack of exterior windows. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Hotel close to everything!"
This Hotel is within walking distance to: Hermitage, the Admiralty,St. Isaac's Cathedral and Nevskiy Prospekt. It is also close to about 50 places to eat. The hotel also has a nice restrauent. The only problem was the heating in the room. It seems like they turn the heat down during the day and up late at night. We would wake up a 2:oo am and it would […] be 90 degrees in the room. We tried to control it with the thermostat but I do not believe that it worked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in an ideal location, the staff were courteous and responsive. The room was spacious. The only complaint is that the mattress had beg bugs. After initial skepticism when requesting the mattress be sprayed, they changed my room after seeing the bite marks on the back of my neck. No other issues. Enjoyed the pool, spa, and jacuzzi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Historic St Petersburg close to major attractions"
Location is central and very close to main shopping district and to the Hermitage. A few nice restaurants were also quite close by. Rooms were very clean, comfortable and warm ( even had heated bathroom floors) which is a plus for Russia's cold weather. Only thing off was that you had to pay for even basic TV and not only movies. Not a major issue as […] we did not spend much time in the room. Hotel concierge was very helpful in calling cabs to an from the airport. Also, they were able to send me a host letter so as to get a Russian visa ( make sure you secure the visa ahead of time before your trip) Would recommend it to friends Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Petro Palace Hotel is (I think) only about 6 years old, but the rooms are decorated in a very classic style. The staff at the hotel are almost all bi-lingual, which was great. They are all friendly and helpful. Our room was huge, one of the biggest I have seen! And the bathroom was also huge, with a heated floor, plenty of towels and the usual amenities. […] Breakfast was included in our room rate and it had all the usual choices (cereals, pastries, yogurt, fruit etc.) You could also order omelettes or bacon and eggs. The Lobby Bar, Sky Bar, and business centre have free wi-fi, or you can pay for wi-fi in your room. Our room had a balcony so we had a lovely view of St. Isaacs Cathedral. If we were to return to Saint Petersburg I would not hesitate to stay at the Petro Palce again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Last Minute Charge Annoying"
It was pleasant enough and located just a 5 minute walk from the Hermitage, right near Nevsky Prospect. Elevator service is the pits.Upon checking out we were hit with a previously unannounced, and unexpected 'Passport registration' fee of 300 rubles. Its not the money (only $10 USD) but the way it was handled. This was the only hotel in Russia that […] imposed this fee. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"We loved this Hotel in a great location"
The Hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the Hermitage Museum and a block away from St. Isaac Cathedral. We enjoyed staying here and getting a room where our breakfast buffette was included in the price of the room. We stayed in Saint Petersburg for 10 days and we enjoyed ours stay in a very comfortable room, with a good size bathroom with […] a regular shower head and a built in-fan. There were small details that we valued as they made our stay more comfortable. For example, we could use the Computer at the Business Center at no extra cost. Besides the regular breakfast buffette they would cook eggs to order and add bacon, ham, sausage, etc. Our room had a thermometer in both centigrades and farenheit so we could always tell what the temperature was. There was also a 5 day weather report posted at the front desk and it was pretty accurate. The Bear Restaurant downstairs offered a limited menu, but the food was very tasty and at good prices. We ate there about 6 times. We also enjoyed the music featured in the Restaurant. The Concierges were there until late at night every day. Some of them are better than others at providing accurate information. For example, the lady that told us how to get to Pushkin to see Katherine's Palace was very well informed and gave us good directions. On the other hand,when we tried to visit Beloselsky Palace on Nevsky Prospekt we asked another young lady at the Concierge's what type of displays were there in this Museum and she said that it was just "an old palace" with furniture. So, we asked directions and the times that it was opened. She gave us the directions, but she never checked in the computer that she had right infront of her, so as a result, we found out after walking there for half an hour in the rain, that the Museum IS CLOSED AND HAS BEEN CLOSED for along period of time. So, I advise you that if you are interested in seeing something outside The Hermitage and Peterhoff, that you do some research before you come to Sai Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location at a very reasonable price"
I have just spent 14 days in Petro Palace Hotel and enjoyed every minute of my stay. Unfortunately I never ate breakfast at the hotel despite paying for it as I spent too much time enjoying the nightlife and couldn't get up early enough. The location of this hotel is its best feature, 2 minutes from St Isaac's Cathedral, 5 minutes to Nevsky, 10 minutes […] to the Hermitage and 20 minutes from the bars and clubs. So, if it is shopping, sight seeing or the nightlife you are looking for, this is the perfect place and a very reasonable price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
