Hotel Olympia Garden is situated a bit outside and south of the absolute city centre , but if you are looking for a reasonable priced hotel, which is nice and clean this is a good choice. Olympia Garden belongs to the Finnish Sokos Hotel Group and, yes, the atmosphere is “Sokos”, meaning that nothing is luxury, but the standard is... More

This hotel is located a bit out of the way in the area near the Technology Institute. The surrounding area is both a local park and a local neighborhood. The underground or metro stop is located within a 5-10 minute walk, so you can easily navigate your way there and then around St. Pete. There are just 4 stops between... More

We were reserved on an early Allegro train to Helsinki so we needed to taxi to the train station. Be careful! We had asked earlier in the day how much it would cost and were given a price which seemed reasonable. We decided to order the cab later in the evening. Hence, when we finally got around to placing the... More

We stayed here as part of a package tour organised by SAGA. Based in a quiet area of the city the nearest Metro is a 5 minute walk away from which the city centre is two stops down the line. The area the hotel is in is not one which lends itself to a stroll, there is not a lot... More

The hotel was nice and the internet connection was good. The food wasn't wonderful and we got ripped off by a taxi driver, but the hotel is walking distance from the two biggest cathedrals - the Kazan and the Spilled Blood.

After a 13 hour drive from Moscow, check in was very slow because of a bus load of yanks. This was immensely annoying as it was inefficient. Entered our standard double room which was very tiny, too small for our 5 night stay and overlooked a building with unsightly graffiti. It would have been alright for 1 night, maybe 2... More

Not the best area for this hotel. Not sure why they are here. They dont take euro or us $ the cleaning staff are sub par. We were afraid to go out at night as the drunks were in the park passed out. Nothing in the area for shopping.
