I wasn't impressed at the arrival to this hotel: you need to press a buzzer to be let in, go up few floors on stairs in a building that looks abandoned and shady. But once you make it into the hotel floor, it's fine. The vibe is a bit granny, but things are clean and tidy. My beef with it... More

It provides a good, simple, clean room in an excellent location at a reasonable price. Our room was a facing the road and canal, but there were no problems with noise. The... More

Very interesting situation near Nevskiy prospekt and metro station, not so far from Ermitage. Old immeuble charming and calm. The hotel is on the third floor without lift, surprising when you come from the airport with a heavy bagage. Good advises for turism from the personnel, they advised us for a frenchspeaking guide very excellent and not so expensive. But... More

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.

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.
