However that is the best thing I can say about the Ambassador Hotel, that and the Concierge Svetlana who was very helpful on many occasions. I have read other people's reviews and believe we are not talking about the same hotel. Our first room was tiny, shabby with worn carpets and furniture but for an extra £100 for four nights... More

My brother and I have just returned from a four day stay in this Hotel, very good and extremely well located, charming staff and very clean, tidy room. The Concierge changed every day, some better than others but all very keen and helpful. However - after the afternoon guests are asked to pay to use the swimming pool, I have... More

Very nice hotel, clean. Great breakfast, must be best in Russia so far for me. Bed was maybe bit too soft. Bathroom was very clean and looked recently renowated. I have visited St Petes two times before and this was best hotel so far. Right next to it is english style pub. Weather was rainy for both days so I... More

First off, the breakfast is brilliant. Excellent value for money and a range of delicious food, served in a room with a panoramic view. Starts early at 7am too. The wifi is really good too. You don't have to log in and it throughout the hotel. The beds are very comfortable, with lovely cotton sheets and great pillows. Bathrooms new... More

Really nice and elegant hotel, good costumer service. Rooms clean and confortable. English speaking reception and useful tourist desk with maps, depliants and all the information you need for a trip. The city centre can e reached on foot through many streets but mainly by Nevskij Prospekt, the main street of the city full of shops, restaurants and nightlife.

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.
