A 3-night last minute stay at the Ambassador at a modest price-being low season, many good deals were available in the city. A good choice in a convenient location, walking distance to the city centre plus three Metro lines nearby. Very impressive lobby, comfortable room, and smart breakfast room/restaurant with beautiful views across the city skyline. Staff were courteous and... More

If you're going to visit Mariinski theater (which was one of our objectives), Ambassador is an excellent place to stay. 15-20 mins walk to the theater; 20 mins walk to St.Isaac Cathedral (!), but 10-15 mins to the nearest subway station. Oh... In Saint Petersburg be prepared to walk a lot. Rooms are basic but good; breakfast is quite decent;... More

Just returned from a special birthday away in St Petersburg at this hotel. They looked after us incredibly well, great swimming pool and general service. But a special note on the complimentary bottle of champers for my wife's birthday - returning to the room to find the bottle on ice! Was a great way of ending the holiday. Thanks guys.

I stayed here on business and all in all, a pretty decent hotel in a very convenient location for the main attractions of St Petersburg. The bar and food prices are reasonably good value. The service is ok, although whether or not I could charge things to my room seemed to depend on the mood of the staff. Would certainly... More

We stayed at this hotel with our children. We were given an complementary upgrade to an apartment / suite for the three nights that were were there. The children were given toys and we were generally made to like like honored guests. The hotel has an option for hiring a car or a van with a driver to take guests... More

Ambassador Hotel is very close to historical Mariinsky Theathre, and also 5 min walk to Sadovaya Metro station, which is just 1-2 stations away from the city centre (Nevsky Prospekt) Room was big and comfortable, bed was very soft.. I can put one more star to this hotel and make it ***** stars because of the room actually =) Anyway,... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations of the hotel our tour group was to use for our stay in St. Petersburg. The lobby and dining room were quite opulent and the choice of food for our buffet breakfast was outstanding. It was helpful to have an ATM right in the lobby and a computer room close by (our I-pad had died... More

One of the feature of the hotel is that it is clean and has spacious and silent rooms. Moreover it is located very close to sadovaya metro station. The breakfast is served at the 9th floor from which you have a cool view on the city. The quality of the food at breakfast is not excellent but is good anyway.... More

Opulent lobby, excellent staff and quality service. What more can you ask for from a hotel. It was a pleasure coming home to my room after a day of sightseeing and souvenir shopping. My wife and I were there for the music festival at the St. Petersburg Conservatory and most of the participating musicians used The Ambassador as home base.... More
