This hotel belongs to the popular in Saint Petersburg category of countless "mini hotels" which means that it occupies just part of the 3rd floor of an ordinary old residential building that has not been rebuilt or renovated since the communist revolution. The floor that the mini hotel occupies and the rooms are fairly comfortable and decently furnished and renovated.... More

I will have to admit that when I arrived and entered the courtyard (a couple of years ago I wouldn't) in the dark and saw the dingy surroundings I wondered what awaits. With a few years of experience in Russia under my belt it just awaited my patience to see what was revealed. The reception is into a closed area... More

The Golden Hotel is in a gated court yard. The reception area is not connected to the rooms. However the reception is warm and instructions are clear. We stayed on the 7th floor and the lift was part of the experience - very small, slow and fragile looking. But better than the stairwell! The suite was magnificent. Wood floors, antiqued... More

Understand ... I was ready to say no go to my hosts that booked it for me. They wanted me to be critical. I loved it! NOW ... you must understand that at the time I stayed there it was undergoing renovation. No noise. Only visual. Old Communist visual. When you get out of the cab it looks like a... More

Pages and pages have been browsed on a famous booking website, until I finally found a seemingly decent hotel with en suite bedrooms. Due to the configuration of old communist buildings in SPB, apparently all other hotels have shared bedrooms, which suit solo travellers but are not ideal for couples. So, we decided to book the Golden Lion. The hotel... More

We have been very satisfied with this hotel. It is very difficult to find good and clean hotels in St.Petersburg in the city centre at an affordable price, and this is it! It is less than 5 minutes safe walk from the metro station of Sennaya Ploschad/Sadovaya, where lines 2 & 4 cross. It is very cheap and easy to... More

new, small but cozy. Young staff, very friendly (it's not so common in SPB). Decent prices for such a "western" standards. Good position, 3 minute walk from metro station.
