Big rooms, clean, helpful staff. Breakfast was slim pickings but I'm not there for the breakfast. 4/5 would stay again. Close proximity to metro station, about 30 min walk into the city center. The hotel is on one of the citys many islands so if you go out at night be aware that the bridges open every night starting 01:30.... More

We haven't actually stayed at this hotel, yet. Our booking is for May, 2014. But I must compliment the staff and in particular, Olesya Labutina, for promptly responding to emails, arranging airport pickup, preparing a Visa Support Letter and answering my many questions. We look forward to staying at this hotel. The Tripadvisor reviews are amazing.

The location of Shelfort is ideal--close to the metro station, walking distance to Hermitage and Nevsky. The staff is extremely helpful and professional. It is a charming local hotel with calm and homelike atmosphere.

This small hotel really made my stay in St Petersburg a home away from home.You could go past it in the street and miss it very easily.The graffiti on the way to it didn't feel encouraging at all, giving a bad impression of the area. Once through the doors it had instant appeal, The staff being so helpful, friendly and... More

We stayed four nights in this lovely hotel. It was very rustic and had a lot of charm. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to help us. The location of the hotel is also very good and we walked across the Nevsky Bridge each day to the centre of St Petersburg. The Metro is close by... More

I found the Shelfort Hotel was a great place to stay due to its close proximity to the services required to eat, travel, see and feel the charm of St Petersburg. As previously stated in other reviews it was close to the Metro, eateries of differing tastes, convenience stores for supplies or a cold beer, banks etc but also if... More

In Russia and old union countries, hotel star level differs from European ones. Considering this average, we can say Shelfort was more than we expected. The staff were very helpful. It was not very large rooms, not luxurious. The building was old but clean. I'm guessing only two or three staff is working per shift. The hotel is very small... More

Pros: very helpful and friendly staff, good and quiet location. Free Wi-Fi. Smoking place between floors. Cons: very basic breakfast with fried egg as only hot meal and terrible coffee (at least during my stay); broken curtains in my room.
