Was told this was a 4-5 star hotel. Maybe quite a few years ago. A bit run down. Rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. Bathroom floor was heated, which was a plus. Internet was poor with a weak signal that could only be found if you were by your door. Staff was stiff, but helpful. Breakfast had plenty of choices... More

I can recommend this hotel, situated on Vasilievsky Island; it doesn't quite have the charm of its bigger sibling (the Sokos Palace Bridge; where I normally tend to stay when in St Pbg) but it nonetheless has its own charm. The breakfast room can get very busy very early (i.e. immediately after opening in the morning - the hotel appears... More

It is a classic and traditional European hotel of antique color and decoration of the front desk. It took a bit time to check in when the staff got to assign rooms to guests or answer questions. They are helpful and traditional, meant lacking of friendly and smile faces. The rooms are well equipped and complimented with some sweet items... More

The hotel is on an island! Please remember, that during the night, all bridges to this island, although near the City Center, are opened, and therefore you cannot cross the bridge and have to be on the island at around midnight! Bridges are closed again in the morning and you can cross them again. Yes, St. Petersburg is a marine... More

As seen on the attached photo of the welcome letter from the box in the guest room, Solo Sokos Hotel Vasilyevskiy has a really "charming and friendly staff."

This is a well-located hotel, reasonably priced, and staffed by friendly, helpful, English-speaking people. The room was comfortable and spacious, as well as being well provisioned.
