We stayed 3 nights at Herzen House. It is in a great location for the main St. Petersburg city sites. The Hermitage, Winter Palace, access to boat trips, Peter and Paul's cathedral/fortress, Church of the Spilt Blood were all a short walk, even for we retirees! Several good restaurants in the area, also. The staff could not have been more... More

One of my math teachers in school liked to repeat that a solid B+ is better than a weak A-. This hotel is a solid B+! Pros: 1) Excellent location - 5 minutes to the metro, 5 min taxi ride to the train station & walking distance to all of the attractions (Hermitage, Russian Museum, Mariinsky ballet, Kazan cathedral, etc.)...

The Herzen House location and staff were truly excellent. The hotel is located on the fourth floor of a building in a beautiful area of St. Petersburg. The metro is a maximum five minute walk away, and so are sights like the Hermitage and Armory. The staff of the Herzen House are very attentive and truly invested in making your... More

The Herzen House is a nice little hotel in central Saint Petersburg. The hotel is on the 4th floor of an apartment building, and thus is quite small. The receptionists are very helpful and speak excellent English. They booked us a taxi and even packed a breakfast for us when we were leaving for an early morning train to Moscow.... More

Nice and clean little hotel, breakfast was OK, locations is ideal for St. Petersburg city centre. As it was my B-day I had a bottle of champagne delivered to my room, nice little touch by hotel staff. Thank you very much!

Very centrally located, just 1 minute walking time to the nearest metro station(Admiralteyskaya) and 5 minutes walking time to the Hermitage Museum. It's a small hotel with very quiet, comfortable and clean rooms. Friendly and well english-speaking staff is ready to help you in every situation. Breakfast could be better but it was still OK.

The Herzen House Hotel is located on one floor of a building in St Petersburg. It is centrally located, conveniently just a couple of blocks from St. Isaac's Cathedral, and several good and one outstanding restaurant. When arriving a 3 am, it was a surprise to find out it's just on one floor and that there are other businesses, including... More

Without the great staff we had at Herzon House and our private guide, St Petersberg would have been an even less user friendly place for tourists than it wAs. In the face of very little effort to accommodate English speaking tourists and a predominantly unfriendly service industry and transport, the staff at this hotel were outstanding in helpfulness, suggestions and...

Enormous breakfasts and access to tea and coffee. Rooms were spotless and very quiet. Just around the corner from the Hermitage and the metro so an excellent choice for... More

Small family-style hotel in the very central location. Clean rooms, recently renovated facilities, not too fancy but nice. Excellent service - 24h lounge with tea, coffee and cookies and very friendly staff, willing to get help in every situation!! Excellent choice for short city trip!
