Not inexpensive, but a decent choice. The two best features were a very helpful staff and a great breakfast, which includes cooked to order eggs and omelets. Our "superior" room was comfortably large, the bedding decent, and the bathroom large and well appointed. on the negative side, there are many tour groups staying here with elevator traffic jams at busy...

Decent location on Vasiliesky island but be prepared for a lot of traffic if going by road into the centre. Near a Metro for the more adventurous. Liked the layout of the large bedroom....not all big rooms you come across have the right things in the right places but this one does. The staff, I thought, were particularly good and... More

Another excellent hotel by Sokos chain in SPb, as comfortable and cosy as otehr hotels :-) However, location in Vasilievsky island was only acceptable for my business trips to sites located there, because travelling to other parts of the city would take some time because of tght traffic. Anyway, I enjoyed the stay and the staff friendliness. Very clean, neat... More

From the front I didn't think much but was impressed with this hotel. Stayed here as part of tour and the comfort level was high. It is well appointed, very comfortable beds, strong blinds. The staff were very good, especially at the bars. It is well located and a short walk from the metro. Would happily stay here again.

The rooms, the staff and the breakfast buffet were all excellent. The hotel is very well located just across the river from the Hermitage and near the metro but in a quiet stret. The price is quite high but not for St. Petersburg.

I came and was booked for 1 month, decided to continue living in the Sokos and stayed altogether for 15months. I found the staff very friendly and attentive. The buffet Breakfast had everything you could wish for. The 8th line pub served every conceivable drink and you could eat great food too at the Bar.
