I just come to the place. The only bad thing is for people with huge bags or with a problem with climbing on the ladders for 4-5 floor. It is a small mini hotel situated very close to the most interesting touristic points of Saint Petersburg. Then I booked the room I wasn't sure I made a right choice because... More

It is on the 4th floor with no elevator, but is in a good location. Only 5 minutes from Nevsky Prospekt with lots of restaurants around to choose from. Our room was dated but really big, and perfect for 3 nights in St Petersburg. The breakfast was good, the homemade pancakes were delicious! The staff were friendly and spoke good... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a couple's getaway and really liked it. First of all the location really is quite good. StP is SOOO big that it takes a while to walk around. This hotel is about 10 minutes walk to a metro station, and five minutes walk to Kazan cathedral. The rooms were clean... More

Hotel Grifon is in a good location, within a twenty minute walk of all the main attractions. The hotel is on the fourth floor of a building with no lift so could be a problem.

I stayed at Grifonhotel for three nights in late July and was really delighted by the whole experience. The location is fantastic, 5 min from Nevsky prospect, view on the canal, very quiet, 10-15 min walk from the Hermitage. I thought it was really excellent value for money. The staff was friendly and mostly spoke English. It's located on the... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Grifon in May and loved the fact that the majority of guests appeared to be Russians in town for the May 9 celebrations. The rooms are decorated in the Russian style of the late sixties but are very clean and comfortable. The stairs are a minor inconvenience compared to the great location and reasonable... More
