“Feels old, not nice old but 70s old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2011

The Peterhof was an okay hotel, but not one I'll be rushing back to. There are hotels with character, and then there are hotels that just feel like they haven't been kept up. The Peterhof is the latter, with most of the hotel feeling like something that just hasn't been updated since the 70s.

Rooms were on the small size, but not terrible. The shower felt a bit tight for my liking. Air fresheners were hung on the door in the room and in the bathroom, never a good sign for a hotel.

The elevator has a steel swinging door on it that locks until the elevator arrives. Again, not the steel cage old type with character, more of a service elevator from a textiles factory type.

Breakfast was decent but not great.

All of my colleagues stayed at the Bayerischer Hof and said it was great. I joined them for dinner there and it looked nice and the restaurant was tasty. Think I'd stay there next time.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

Very disappointed by Hotel Peterhof. Looks and feels like a cheap motel, not a hotel and certainly not 3 star. Not actually cheap either - we paid 74 Euro per night. Some good points - it was clean, the breakfast was good and it's a 5-10 minute walk to the main sights. However, it has no air-conditioning in any of the rooms and only provided a desk fan in 30 degree heat. Lots of road noise all night as the hotel is on a main road. Terribly dated 1960's style room, worn carpets, stained bathroom floor, ugly curtains, cheap decorations. "Double bed" was actually twin beds on a strange sliding mechanism - beds slid apart constantly. Bar fridge did not work. Staff were not very helpful. It is the first time I've ever thought about abandoning a hotel within minutes of checking in. Ther has got to be a better hotel in this town.

Exceptionally clean. Great beds. The staff were unbelievably helpful (and we made some odd requests) and friendly. Everyone went out of there way to help us with transportation and tourism needs. Yeah, so the outside isn't an architectural jewel. Think of it as a geode. The interior was warm, pretty and friendly. A joy to return to after a long day of sightseeing. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. Dinner was delicious. Try the Indian food, if you need a break from German food. The coconut curry was excellent. Easy walk to the old town and bus station.

The outside of this hotel is disappointing, a very standard 60's tower block. Its also located on a busy junction. However, the staff were exceptionally friendly and accomodating and the food was of good quality (italian/greek influenced)and in great quantities. The rooms were well furnished and with the windows shut were much quieter than we expected. Could have done with air con though.
