My first visit ever to Russia was to St.Petersburg; apart from the abundant culture and breathtaking architecture, our visit was made extra special by the people at the Ambassador Hotel, Rimsky Korsakov Prospect (street). A fantastic location for all the main attractions with all the facilities you need. I must make a special mention of Svetlana Fyodorova, one of the... More

We stayed for three nights in the ambassador hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean, every employee of the hotel was kind and helpful at any time. Quality of the food in ambassador-restaurant was acceptable, but still room for improvement. Good hotel for a city-trip!

Really comfortable beds with good linen. Superior rooms are spacious and relaxing. Everything works properly, really appreciated a bathroom mirror that did not steam up after a shower. Lovely breakfasts with panoramic view of St. Petersburg skyline. Hotel feels quite glamourous and is kept gleamingly clean. Staff well trained and seem genuinely friendly. Very nice pool for a morning swim.... More

We had such an amazing time in St-Petersburg. The hotel is beautiful and located in the center of St-Petersburg, walking distance to a subway. The breakfast was rich. The rooms were clean and there was always someone available in case if you need something. The staff at the reception, especially charming Natalia, is very professional and helpful. She did not...

I would attribute the hotel to 5 star, due to swimming pool availability. Pity, usage for free was restricted by morning hours. Nice breakfast, excellent location, helpful and properly trained personnel. I would mention concierge service by Svetlana. Top professionalism is noticeable though small nuances on the edge of job duty obligations. Once again, thank you Svetlana. On the whole... More

Good hotel, spacious, quiet, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, a bit out of view, but within a good walking distance from the city center. On the other hand, the location facilitates access by car to Pulkovo airport. Traffic in St. Petersburg is heavy and a good idea is to avoid the main road at rush hour. The neighborhood is largely residential... More

First, the closest metro station is located at half a mile from the hotel. Moreover Sadovaya square, is a very good place to it, or enter up to 3 lines of metro. The breakfast is full of cold and hot dishes, including homemade pastries, salmon, French fries etc... And the food isnt that much greasy (for russian/european dishes). Fruit juices... More

I stayed at the Ambassador in mid-December. I've stayed here several times and each visit is wonderful. My room is clean, cozy and comfortable. The delicious breakfast buffet is a wonderful way to start the day. The hotel is conveniently located to the Philharmonic Hall, museums and the Metro. A great neighborhood conducive to walking. The hotel's transport to and... More
