The location was great very close to Hermitage & underground. The room was clean & new with lots of light from big windows. Very clean Hotel. The breakfast was good, hot & cold choices. They paid attention to small details such as coffee & tea available all day & filtered water to drink. When the water was empty, we noticed... More

If you are looking for the perfect location for a hotel in Saint Petersburg then By The Hermitage is it.You can walk out the door and onto a canal cruiser or take a few more steps and be at either the Hermitage or Nevsky Prospect or many other tourist sites. There are many good quality restaurants and bars close by... More

Pretty good location right next to the Nevsky avenue, the rooms and bathrooms were simple but clean and organised, the staff was friendly but they lack initiative. It was OK for a late reservation but next time I would try a different place.

First of all, I don't know what Sven A is talking about, the rooms aren't palatial, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with them. The water is hot, the rooms are clean, and warm - and the price is very reasonable, and the location exceptional. What more do you want? My answer would normally be nothing, but when I was in...

We booked this hostel through the website saint-petersburg-hotels.com, because via this way we could get visa support for our stay. Big mistake. This website advertises the "By the Hermitage Hotel" to have air-conditioning, but this was the very first thing we saw that was missing as we entered our rooms. The second thing we noticed was the size. This room... More

The security (having to buzz reception to get past an armoured door the like of which I haven't seen since I worked at an embassy) was a little worrying - what happens if there's a fire? - but I guess it's pretty standard in Russia. Don't think you can chuck a chair through the window and escape that way, they... More

A friend and I stayed six nights here in June and were quite satisfied with this small hotel. The room was tiny and the hotel reception is on the second floor, as was our room, so that meant lugging suitcases up the stairs (though the staff did help with this when we were leaving). The pluses here are the location--we... More

Exit from room and the building is ultimately controlled by closed circuit TV and a "request" button one presses to alert the person at the desk ("covered 24/7 by the attendant") to buzz you OUT. Yes, that's right, you cannot leave the building when it is locked unless someone buzzes you out. Even after checking in we were not told... More

This hotel is no longer part of the Rinaldi chain (not certain if that has any bearing on the quality or not) and is simply called the By the Hermitage Hotel. My travel agent and I chose the hotel primarily for its location (definitely its best feature) and based on the recommendation of a travel company but with some reservations... More

My husband and I stayed at the Rinaldi with my sister-in-law Jan 4 - 6th. When the taxi first approached the hotel, I thought we were in the wrong place. It looks like an apartment building. Only a small sign indicates that it's a hotel. We had mixed feelings about the B&B. Here are the pros & cons: Pros: Location,... More
