This hotel is well situated. Close to restaurants and a metro station within a stone's throw. Within walking distance from the very central parts of Saint Petersburg. Comfortable room without any luxury. Good breakfast with much to choose from.

We were booked here as part of a tour. Rooms are clean and comfort but small. It hasn’t air-condition but if you need fresh air you can open the windows! The rooms have hair dryers but no irons. Wi-Fi is weak in the room. The location is great, exactly close to the two subway stations, close to the exchange and... More

The only good thing with this hotel is that it is very close to two Metro stations. Also a shopping center in the same building. Rooms are small, no A/C. Hotel has a lack of maintenance. Lives from Tourist Groups. Don´t expect any kind or level of service. Reception can´t even call a taxi. "We are not allowed to make... More

4 hotel stars in Russia is equivalent to less than half in the western world. Do not believe the photos on their website - Photoshop is a fantastic tool. Booked a superior room - got a crammed little room where my wife and I could not pass each other. The room was dark, and the window small facing an interior... More

The hotel room that doesn't kill you will make you a stronger traveler, or so I hope. Tiny, bleak, VERY low ceilinged-room with non-opening windows; musty bathroom with VERY weak flush; linoleum floor; no soundproofing; surlier-than-usual reception desk staff; TERRIBLE wifi. two tiny pros: cheerful and helpful bellhop; breakfast isn't exactly gold medal worthy but it's above starvation level, with...

Nice looking hotel, pretty clean, breakfast is large but hugely uninteresting, with very low quality groceries and moldy bread. Location is decent but not nice and I would definitely look for somewhere closer to the center next time. Room is large and well appointed, but it doesn't make up for an extraordinarily disappointing breakfast and employees who lack basic personal... More

We spent a very nice holiday weekend in St. Petersburg, and Hotel Dostoyevskiy offered a great hotspot close to the main street Newski Prospekt and most important tourist attractions. There's a subway station just nearby, and Newski Prospect is within 5-10 minutes walking distance. Single and regular rooms were quite small, but they were clean. We had three rooms and... More

As the other reviews say, the front desk staff are VERY rude, the only staff member that seemed friendly was the porter. The rooms were dated but were quite clean. When we returned late in the afternoon, after a big day of sightseeing, the housekeeper was cleaning the room and seemed very annoyed we had returned. (So we waited outside).... More

Room was clean and well appointed, staff were polite and helpful. The breakfast was perfect for a full day's sightseeing. It included Russian food choices which made us feel we were not just in an homogenised international hotel. The location was ideal,opposite a beautiful church and right next to two Metro stations; very convenient. I would stay there again.
