We had the privilege of staying here and from the moment we exited the taxi we felt most welcomed by all staff that we encountered. The public areas and restaurants were nicely appointed, the food was superb and the service could not have been more accommodating. The breakfast buffet was the best we had experienced throughout our travels in Europe.... More

The Kempinski is right behind the Hermitage, so very central for all the sights of Saint Petersburg. We were able to explore in the evenings after our exhausting days of excursions, and visited local restaurants, shops and cafes. Very well run and beautifully fitted out, this hotel was a perfect base for our 3 day visit to Saint Petersburg.

I really enjoyed service at this wonderfull St.Petersburg hotel. Breakfast is a joy, you would not like to leave the restaurant. Spa is perfect (and few people there), Restaurant on top floor offers perfect views of the city. And being at the conference, I was busy to pack my things and left my jeans in the room. I did realise... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location, very close to The Hermitage and within walking distance of many of St Petersburg's churches and cathedrals and the main shopping street. There are plenty of restaurants nearby to suit all budgets. The buffet breakfast was one of the best we have ever seen with lovely juices, a splendid array of... More

There are few first class hotels in S:t Petersburg and Kempinski is one of them. The hardware is fine and staff are alert and customer focused. However nothing to do and if you sit on the top floor restaurang which has a wonderful view of town you are probably alone.No gym as far as I could see.

This is a great hotel in a great location and the breakfast and staff were superb. But the standard room was another story, First one was a very tiny double bed room and we changed to a room with a queen, #539. Still incredibly small and cramped and we asked for an upgrade but were told the hotel was sold... More

A good choice if visiting the Hermitage Museum area. Top marks to the doorman who greeted me by name as soon as I stepped out of the car and introduced me to the concierge who escorted me directly to the room (very slick and professional checkin). Rooms a bit small, but about as expected, and nicely decorated with a nice... More

Stayed three nights -The location is fine, the standard rooms are very small, the public areas not particularly impressive and I just expected more from brand Kempinski especially in St.Petersburg. Breakfast was fine with a wide buffet selection but service for coffee was a bit hit and miss. Plus the seating was not sufficient if all guests turned up nearly... More
