Loved this hotel. Very nice rooms. Great breakfast. The brick walls made the room very quiet. It's not in the middle of everything you want to see, but not unreasonable walking distances. I will stay here again if I ever make it back to St. Pete.

The staff were excellent, being both helpful and friendly. Their English was very good - it is their second language, so I'm not sure why anyone would expect there not to be some problems with some translations. If you don't like a walking (at all), then stay in the centre of town. The walk across the two bridges to town... More

Dear Raglanveiws, Thank you so much for your informative review with so funny details about russian driving manners (I'd agree!). Half of our rooms faces the quiet yard, second half faces the street. If we have such possibility (based on our occupancy) we always change rooms upon request for light sleepers or due to other circumstances. You are always welcome... More

A good base for exploring St. Petersburg. The hotel is fine - we stayed in a standard room which sadly didn't have a view of the river (just a view of the buildings behind). Breakfast was fine but nothing spectacular (usual buffet breakfast with cereals etc but not much in the way of hot food). The staff were nice and... More

Dear Carl800, We'd like to thank you for choosing our hotel. Your review is very informative and it really helps other travellers to make a right choice. As for the tranfer policy: hotel's transfer (made by Mercedes E or Ford Galaxy) cost around 2000 Rub, taxi ride from airport costs 1000 Rub (fixed official price), but sometimes the tourists choose...

We stayed in the standard room with an extra bed for one week and had a great stay here! The extra bed is as expected, sort of like a camp bed but was fairly comfortable. Small boutique style hotel and the heated bathroom floor was a big plus! Reception were always very friendly and gave some good tips. Like others... More

Small but very cute hotel with amazing location at the historical heart of Saint-Petersburg. Superb view on Peter and Paul fortress from apartment's windows. You have to see it. Cosy and clean room. Very responsible staff.

Dear Alexey198, Thank you for choosing our property. It's great to read that your stay was awesome. I'd like to mention that only one apartment suite and lobby windows have this spectacular view over the Peter and Paul Fortress but it's always possible to enjoy this area by walking only 5 minutes from the hotel's door. Thank you for beeing... More

Good hotel for a 2 day stay with our 2 children, but did not take kindly to the far from clear pricing quoted. I had e-mailed for a price for 2 rooms. The price quoted and paid turned out to just be for the smaller room so was only 40% of that due which was a shock.

Dear Childlead, First of all we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel. It's very pity for us to read that misunderstanding of our price policy turned out to such an unpleasant surprise.

Ours was a family trip to visit our daughter who was studying in St. Petersburg. I have to say that the Tradition Hotel served our purposes admirably. The staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were spotless. Due to a booking muddle-up - not the hotel's fault - we didn't eat there so can't comment on the catering. Our... More

Dear ScotiaTraveller, Thank you for choosing Tradition Hotel. It's always great when family members are together. I agree that the walk over the bridges might be cold during wintermonths and the best solution would be to use the bus #191 with the stop 200 meters away from the hotel, direction to Nevsky pr.

The hotel was small and charming and the service was great. They surprised us with a bottle of champagne on my husband's birthday. It was in a very interesting location. We could walk for hours and discover fun things to see. We'd go back definitely.
