Great location
Very close to Palace Square and just off Nevsky Prospekt so close to the Hermitage, the river and plenty of transport. Staff cheerful and helpful. Nice breakfast. Rooms smallish but good layout, comfortable and super clean. The beautiful tree outside my window was a spring bonus!

Fantastic hotel location and staff
Great place to stay! Location is fantastic; walking distance to all major attractions, few feet to main street and still very quite. The staff is the best!!! They go out of their way to make you happy! I would not pick any other place to stay in St Petersburg.

The girls at reception were the nicest and friendliest people I met while in Russia. They simply could not have been better. The breakfast was very impressive and the crepes were maybe the best I've ever had anywhere! DEFINITELY recommend!

Perfect Location
The location of By the Hermitage is perfect - within walking distance to all the highlights of St. Petersburg. The reception staff is friendly, speaks good English and is very helpful when you need directions or information. The room that we had was adequate for a one night stay - a bit on the small side. Our room was clean but housekeeping needs to change the shower curtain more often - ours had a mildew odour. Also, the stairs going to the rooms need to be vacuumed on a regular basis. When we checked in, we noticed that the hallways, staircase and front lobby needed to be cleaned from walk in debris. Also, this hotel does not have an elevator - ask for a first floor room if you have difficulty climbing stairs with luggage.
