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

I was here for a conference that was held in the hotel. If you have strong legs, it's within walking distance to the large shopping street - Nevskiy Prospekt, the Winter Palace and the Hermitage Museum. The nearest Metro station; Sadovaya, is about 400 m (1/4 mile) away. The hotel itself is a modern, international hotel. The staff spoke good... More

The lobby is almost over-the-top in old school glamour and glitz. The staff was sincerely gracious and helpful. The breakfast buffet is located in a top floor restaurant with a spectacular view of St. Isaac Cathedral and the city skyline. The neighborhood is not inviting for a stroll, but the hotel is centrally located.

Lovely hotel, friendly, helpful staff - nothing is too much trouble and ideally placed. Best buffet breakfast I have ever had. Good size swimming pool, although swimming is only free in the mornings, payment after that. Great view from the restaurant window over the city. If you need anything, just ask, and it appears! Would definitely stay here again and... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It is quite centrally located, offers comfortable rooms and a good service. The breakfast room offers a very good sight over the City of Petersburg. Lots of popular sights are in walking distance, i.e. not more then 20 mins.

This is our 6th night at this hotel and the third night that the throbbing disco beat from the 8th floor weddings are preventing us from sleep. If I didn't know better I would swear I was at a gay bar on Bourbon Street in the '70's! On the plus side, the hotel is well located, the Georgian restaurant next... More
