Pros: Very clean, high-ceilinged rooms are an amazing contrast with the hovels usually on offer at comparable prices. Helpful front desk staff, very efficient taxi to airport. Cons: 1. Absolutely unacceptable breakfast -- dry bread, scary-looking sausages, tired salads nobody with common sense would want to touch. Breakfasts are important not just because one needs to eat in the morning,... More

We were in St. Petersburg for a few days and our friend suggested this property. While the location is great, just a short walk from Nevsky Prospect and other landmarks, the walls were very thin - to the point we heard our neighbor unpacking a plastic bag (not to mention showering, talking on the phone, watching TV, etc.).

Location is as good as it gets in St Pete. Plenty of attractions and restaurants within a couple of blocks. Very safe for women travelers or singletons. Front desk offered umbrellas for the rain, safe luggage storage and made dinner reservations upon request. Breakfast is basic, efficient with good coffee. The rooms are no frills, but very clean.

This centrally situated hotel is not luxury but deliveres service far beyond its star rating. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Flag from your home country greets you in your room and also a memento key ring. Breakfast buffet is Continental but you can also order eggs. 24/7 free coffee and tea. Within easy walking distance of Hermitage, canal boats,... More

The hotel is on the 4th floor of a historical building in the center of St. Petersburg, 10 min walk from the Hermitage. There is an elevator. It is well run, the reception is friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean (10/10). The Standard room is small, but any size after that (Superior, Comfort, etc.) is good. The decor is... More

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
