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.

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. We hope you review will help other... More

Extremely helpful staff, who all speak good English. They even let us stay a few hours extra in our room free of charge because I wasn’t feeling well.

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.

My wife and I went to St. Petersburg for a few days. We were supposed to stay at a rented apartment (à la Air b'nb) but we really didn't like the place; it wasn't super clean, the neighbours were noisy and it was HORRIBLY hot. Not wanting our trip to be completely ruined, I went online and checked the good... More
