Hotel is not super-central, but with the metro or even by taxi it is no problem to get to the main attractions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, very nice and had all amenities you need. It was very clean and the breakfast buffet was fantastic! Will definitely use this hotel when I go back... More

Stayed at the hotel in August 2014. The hotel is situatd in a quiet district about 20 minutes walk from the main city arteria Nevsky prospect. We stayed in standard double room on the 7th floor. The room had a spacious balcony with impressive view to the neighbourhood. We were lucky to get room with a city view, as many... More

I would recommend this hotel to the Winter traveller to St Petersburg. It is in a quiet area off the main 'drag' so does necessitate a walk to the centre of the city but the quietness of the area is worth the walk. The rooms, albeit they were rather bare and lacked some colour, were clean, well serviced each day... More

Dear Brookfield99, Thank you for choosing Grand Hotel Emerald and recommendation to stay in our hotel during the winter period! Winter is really a nice time to visit Saint-Petersburg: beautiful snowy suburbs (Tsarskoe Selo, Peterhof, etc.), no queues in the museums, world-famous ballet and opera performances in Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky theatres and a lot of other interesting things to do...

We stayed here for five nights. We had really only one complaint, and I guess it could be circumvented by choosing a room on the street, rather than facing the atrium. This is of course contrary to what one might expect, but they had a private function using the open atrium and the sound from the band and the mc... More

Pros: good sized room and bathroom, very clean, nice linen and toiletries. Cons: no iron/ironing board, no electric kettle, and a 10 minute walk to nearest metro station and the train station for Moscow trains. But the biggest downside is the structure of the rooms around an enclosed atrium: if the hotel is hosting a party there when you are... More

I at the Emerald for work. Excellent service, very helpful personnell, and very good restaurant inside, where we had a superb (for us foreigners!) russuan meal based on fish. The hotel is a bit old (it is old, and it feels old), with bathtub and not just showers in the rooms, fine furniture but looking very old (...not "antique"). But,... More

This is a nice hotel all the aspects of the hotel we could not fault, but for a tourist it is not in the best of locations it is just to far from all the main attractions do not be fooled by it near this and that it is a good 45-50 minutes walk to The Heritage. We would not... More

We travelled with a tour group and stayed for 5 nights. The hotel was very comfortable, and the room we were in was quite a good size, although others were in smaller rooms. However, the room air-conditioning failed to reduce the temperature below 24 degrees C, despite being set well below this temperature.Our room overloooked the inner 'courtyard' which was... More

It is situated on a street close to the Nevsky Prospekt that runs through the main area and the local metro station, Mayakovskaya.

This is a decent hotel, in a great location. I had an "inward" facing room looking onto the restaurant, which is obviously less preferable to an outside room with a view. However, the room was comfortable, and quiet. The bar downstairs served reasonably priced drinks, with a very limited food menu. What makes this a great place to stay is... More
