    Great location if you enjoy walking around the city, if not there are trams, trolley buses and metro nearby. Our room was clean and comfy, nice big bed, spotless shower room and bathrobes. Free WiFi. Breakfast was plentiful and interesting. Husband liked the smoked sprays, I liked the chocolate coated prunes and there were lots of familiar choices too. We... More

    Staying at Tradition hotel for 4 nights last October I have only good words to say about its facilities, service and atmosphere. The receptionist were very efficient and yet friendly.

    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
