“Nice hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

I have stayed in this hotel in April. Our room was very nice, modern and spacious. There is a tv (with only Russian channels), no fridge and the bathroom was very clean, as well as the room. We asked for a room with a double bed, but we got one with 2 singles placed together.
We had breakfast every morning in the hotel. It's the same every day. The quality of the food is good. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and speaks English very well. There is wifi throughout the hotel.The elevator in the hotel is/looks old and it shakes quite a bit when you use it. But it worked every time.
The location is great. It's situated very close to all the sights. Everything is in walking distance. I read in older reviews that there should be a small supermarket next to the hotel, but it's no longer there.
I had a great stay here and a few good nights sleep. The location was the main plus of this hotel, and the fact that our room looked modern and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A nice hotel with great location...15min. walk to Hermitage and 10-15min. walk to Nevsky Prospeckt. Staff: Very pleasant and helpful. Spoke good English, there is no need to have a guide - administrators can give all info what to visit and how to get there (special thanks to Anna for advices and hospitality!) Room: Nice, comfortable room with all the amenities i. e. safe, hair dryer, WIFI and phone. One thing we missed is fridge. Breakfast: we enjoyed, (choice of eggs, ham & sliced cheese, fruit, cereal, yogurt, croissants, juice, coffee and tea) but needs more variety .
Would definitely stay at this hotel again and can recommend it.

This is not an easy place to find, but when you do, you'll be rewarded with good value and the friendliness of Ksenia (yes, that's really her name). I had a fifth-floor room, reached by an elevator, which felt as if it might break down at any moment, but did the job every time. My bed was two singles pushed together with little walking space on either side. The Wi-fi and the shower are excellent. The continental breakfast was outstanding, with sausages, lunch meats, cheese, breads, cereals, yogurt, fruit, juices, milk, coffee and tea. St. Petersburg's hotel bargains are few, but this is one, and if you don't need a shining star, this is a good place.

Room Tip: Any room will be good on this quiet street, but the higher, the better

Me and my wife got a very good offer from Vivastay for this small, but excellent situated hotel. Everything is in walking distance - that is, walking distance in St. Petersburg dimensions, where you have to be prepared to walk a little bit more, because everything is so grandiose. But you cannot be closer to main attractions, specially not for this price. Bus/trolleybus station is 100 m from hotel, and it can take you to Nevski Prospekt or anywhere around center in minutes.
Hotel street, Galernaya, should be without traffic, but there was some reconstruction on the way in neighbourhood, so it was not so quiet as it should be, especially in the morning.
Hotel staff are kind and helpful (many thanks to Anna!), and English of administrators on reception is very good. And others are trying to help, so staff rating is excellent. Room was very clean, and there was enough space for two people. Walls are rather thin, but this was not problem. Towels where changed every day and the bathroom is well equipped.
Breakfast was surprisingly good for St. Petersburg's standards, at least as I heard. Small buffet breakfast, nothing fancy, but with enough choices to make a good start of a day. Compliment to the lady in the kitchen, who did a good job adding everything needed.
For dining, don't miss small restaurant in the same street, just 20 m from hotel: Krokodil. Excellent food with modest prices and cool atmosphere!
Overall, we were very pleased with our staying at hotel Nevsky Breeze. Best regards to all staff and once again, thank you, Anna :-)

We were looking exactly for what we got. Clean hotel room in the street without trafic in the heard of the city for reasonable price. The room rather small but OK. Staff was almost invisible, but giving good advice in English if needed. We were lucky for calm neinghbours, therefore "paper walls" did not matter. Breakfast simple, typical russian, but acceptable: vegetable (cabbage salat, buckwheat), porridge few fruits always found.
Only negative during our 7night stay was bothering noise coming from construction works of a house approx. 50 m from the hotel running round the clock during weekdays. Ear plugs are highly reccomended for those who are sensitive for noise during the sleeping.
If we travel again to SPt., we would use the hotel again.

This place is strange. The hotel is situated in a nice street, with magnificent buildings, and looks nice from the outside. On the inside, the stairway looks as it is 40 years old and not maintained. It could be something in a horror movie.

The roomms are of very different size. We stayed on the 2. floor, with cramped rooms and paperthin walls. We could hear our neighbours conversation word for word. The television was falling down but a plastic bottle could keep it up. No english TV bud fast wi.fi.

We also stayed on the 4. floor, and this room was much larger and better kept. The TV here was miniscule.

The receptiion is not manned before 8 AM, so if you wish to leave early, you have to wake the nightwatch behind a closed door, and he does not speak a word of english.

Breakfast is so-so. It is served in a hot room, and wiith the same food every day. Cornflakes but no cold milk. Toast but the cold cuts are not cold after a few hours in this heat. No fruit except way to old apples. Starts at 8 AM

No fridge in the room. Hot water at reception but no mugs and byo coffee

They add 180 rubles to registrate with the police (not optional) and not all booking engines will tell you this. Booking.com does not while agoda does.

English is spoken but not in the morning.

Very central location. 20 minutes walk from metro.

All in all - we payed 3.000 rubles. and that is a fair price for the large room onn the 4. floor. Others had it had 4.000 which is WAY to much. You pay for location but not more than that.

The hotel is very close to water and centrally located. Rooms are in good condition and staff is very helpful.
But I can't say the same things for the breakfast.Please take that round white plastic taste like cheese out of my sight.İnstead stock up on the yellow cheese which tastes better.What I mean is really stock up we stayed 3 days and the breakfast was never good. Who would eat "rigatoni pasta" in the morning?
