I hosted a two-day seminar and had wonderful support from the staff (especially Natalia in the dining room) who catered to all our needs. The food was excellent and the service exceptionally better than I was expecting from this class hotel. The staff speaks English well and was helpful in sight-seeing and making other arrangements. Kudo's to the staff!

I spent two nights in this hotel. Came with nine colleagues. First day we had a quick lunch in the restaurant: almost all took a borsch soup and it was good. Room was spatious for one person but it was missing shelves where to put your clothes. The shelf on top of the wardrobe was too high. Plenty of mirrors... More

Room 412 was very small. No towel rail in bathroom and the shower was very difficult to access being over the bath. There were two taps for the shower, one for the water and one for the temperature. I guess that you might get used to them after a few days. Vey confusing light switches and no carpet on the... More

Solo Sokos was nice place to stay, we used it for business meeting and staff was really helpful on setting everything up for us. Rooms were nice and breakfast good! It was hard to reach via taxi due to bridge construction

Great Pro: One of the uncommon hotels that allows you to tap your hotel card instead of sliding the card anywhere in the hotel. This is extremely convenient when your hands are full. Wish other hotels can do the same thing. Pros : Great service for room, nearby Zoological Museum and the river. Free plain water. Room decor fit for... More

My colleagues and I were on a business trip in St Petersburg and stayed twice in November - December at Solo Sokos Hotel Vasilievsky. During each stay the cleanliness of our rooms did not match to a four-star hotel. Although rooms are superficially cleaned, they are in need of serious attention. I put the throw from my bed on top... More
