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

This hotel was great..least walk to most sites.. Good part of town too. David the receptionist spoke wonderful English and the hotel was very welcoming. The standard room,however, was small and no bath tub...we tried to upgrade but there were none available. There is a smell when you get there, but it is from the river...

A friend and I stayed for three nights at the Tradition Hotel, and dealt with three different members of staff - all of whom were extremely helpful. The location was fairly good, and the only complaint we had was the bridges going up on us and not being able to get home easily at midnight!
