“Good for Smolnyi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

It was the proximity to Smolnyi and comparatively reasonable price during the White Nights that led my Moscow office to book us into marshal. Generally, I do not regret. Friendly staff, nice spaces in this historical building of army barracks, perfect sound insulation, no traffic jams on the street, just one block away from the Neva embankment for walks. Clean, spatious bathroom, and generally adequate (whilst not very fancy) furniture. Working ai conditioning. Bedsheets and pillows of cheap kind, but clean. Breakfast barely adequate, and restaurant very basic - some good restaurants in the neighbourhood, try Serafino.

Room Tip: Standard room no 6 has a small sitting/office room and a large anteroom for the same price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Near the Tavishevskyi Palace it offers decent sized rooms, pleasant staff that are english speaking, a restaurant that has minimal but adequate options and relatively close to most tourist attractions, the Metro and Smolny Cathedral. BBC on TV.

Hotel MARSHAL
Address: Shpalernaya 41,
tel. +7 ( 812) 579-99-55.

Nearest metro is CHERNYSHEVSKAYA.

Hotel is north of Nevsky Prospekt, probably 30 minutes walk from Italyanskaya and Moika.
It's very handy for Smolny cathedral.
If you are interested in military history, there is a small museum inthe hotel dedicated to Marshal Mannerheim.
When I visited, behind the hotel in the courtyard, were two mobile missile launchers and a battle tank - not quite what I expected to see from my ground floor bedroom window. A reminder that history is never far away!

Useful hotel, few amenities to speak of but very clean and tidy.
In April 08, the frontage is undergoing major renovation and you might be surprised that the hotel is still fully functional.
Breakfast v basic.
Only about 11 rooms.
Cost was about USD 150/night in April 08.
[Bear in mind, this is cheap for central St Pete at this time of year]
Plenty, plenty of restaurants in central St Pete.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2007

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days this summer. The location was convenient for my work and would be fine for a tourist comfortable walking or using the metro system. Plenty of shops and nice restaurants in the neighborhood. The staff was very pleasant. The room was basic and needed cosmetic renovation - new carpet, fresh wallpaper, although it was clean. The hallway smelled funny and the breakfast was not exciting. Good value in the high tourist season when all prices are outrageous, but in the off-season I would look for a better room elswhere.

  • Liked — Location and staff
  • Disliked — Seemed a little old and run down
