My wife and I stayed two nights in this hotel as part of a package booked with a ferry trip from Helsinki to St Petersburg and back. For this reason I cannot comment on value for money (although the overall trip was exceptional value I thought). However I can comment on the hotel itself. I was very impressed. The staff... More

Very easy check in, friendly and efficient staff throughout the hotel. It's located in a quite street, we heard no noise from the 3rd floor, but a good 30 minutes walk along the embankment and across the bridge to the Admiralty. I wish we were closer. But it's only 10 minutes away brisk walk from the easy to use, efficient... More

The rooms are so good, that one might only like to stay in the room! This is also because there is some distance to go to reach the main sights. The walk along the river is, however, delightful and you can vary which side of the river you walk, and there are actually some sights to see along the way,... More

The Sokos has everything you could need, including a money changer and two ATMs if you need roubles. There are some nice restaurants close by, and the a la carte restaurant in the hotel has nice food - it is more expensive but good if you are in a hurry. It is a fair way from the main attractions -... More

We just stayed at this hotel in St. Petersburg. The staff was super friendly, and the hotel rooms were very spacious and clean. Loved the fact that the hotel was one minute walking distance from tram rides to the center of town. Very easy using public transportation. And, the breakfast included was superb!! Would highly recommend this hotel!

I booked the room for the convenience of cruise to city center transportation offered by St. peterline 72h visa free cruise package. The hotel front and entrance does not look much, but the room turns out spacious, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast and wifi good. It is a little walk (20 min) to Hermitage though.

Relativism is a key attitude and therefore you should always look around where you are and what the alternatives are. So this is a Russian hotel to be compared against the local alternatives and honestly you won't choose SPB for its hotels. Back to this hotel, I found the rooms to be too small with limited natural light despite being... More
