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

The hotel is 10 minutes from the main train station where the Sapsan train arrives from Moscow. It is situated on a street close to the Nevsky Prospekt that runs through the main area and the local metro station, Mayakovskaya. A local supermarket is available for essential supplies, 5 minutes walk away. Check in was OK, not all staff spoke... More

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

Excellent hotel which served us well. We stayed in February this year for 4 nights. Our bedroom was huge and spotlessly clean overlooking the street. Other rooms were smaller and looked out over the inner courtyard housing the restaurant which was nicely decorated in cool, clean shades of green and while. Breakfasts were exceptional and we enjoyed some of the... More

The hotel is located 10 minutes by foot from the center of Nevsky Prospekt and the metro station of Mayakovskaya. Staff is very friendly and helpsome, rooms are clean and the breakfast is fantastic. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone who plans to visit St. Petersburg!

This is a very good hotel catering to your every need. The standards of cleanliness and housekeeping are very high and the breakfast options are comprehensive (tho the hot food is not very hot!). The only slight negative is that the staff are not very friendly, but I have found that this hotel is not unique in that.

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in jun. 2013 . The breakfast is wery good , local specialities, salmon, caviar, champagne etc. The staff were generally friendly. I' recommend to evryone. 4 éjszakát voltunk a hotelben 2013 júniusban. A reggeli nagyon jó, helyi specialitások, lazac, kaviár, pezsgő és mások. A személyzet udvarias. Mindenkinek ajánlom.
