We recently visited St Petersburg and stayed at the Happy Pushkin. From a location perspective the hotel was brilliantly situated and we were able to walk to all the places of interest on our list. The staff were friendly and accommodating, however, I would not call it a boutique hotel as we know it. The decor was garish and not... More

The Happy Pushkin is perhaps our best hotel experience ever. The room was large and comfortable and having a heated floor in the bathroom was an unexpected comfort. The front desk staff were the friendliest I have have encountered in decades of travel, and they work with the guests to make your stay memorable. The breakfast was a daily feast.... More

Splendidly located in Saint Petersburg in an historical property one block away from the River Neva. The street is quite plain and, like many places, sidewalks and facades are in need of some maintenance, but I found the area safe at all hours of the day and night walking around extensively. During the White Nights it seems the whole city... More

Great location with easy access to many locations. Friendly staff and very good breakfast and restaurant. Room was beautiful and very comfortable with a large bathroom. Would suggest earplugs though if one has a room facing the street and the window needs open. Would gladly return again

I like it when hotels have made an effort, done something extra, f.ex. created an interior consept like the one in Happy Pushkin. We had booked two rooms, one double room for my sister and myself, and one single room for my mum. The double room was on the 4th floor in the "famous" dark corridor. But the room was... More

A lovely cozy hotel by the river. Beautiful interior, great food and staff. All of the reception staff were friendly and helpful, but to sort things e.g. problem with air conditioning or shower etc. need to pay better attention and sort them much quicker if you don't want to ruin your guests staying in your hotel. At least they tried... More

The exterior of the building does not provide any indication of the sumptuous interior that you'll find inside. While many hotels are going with sleek, minimalist design, the Happy Pushkin has gone in the opposite direction. The use of velvet upholstery, crystal chandeliers, flocked wallpaper and an abundance of red paint recalls an era that is echoed on the streets... More

A lovely little hotel, the guys on the front desk were particularly helpful and friendly and spoke very good English.
