In February I had holidays and I stayed in the hotel Aston. There, I got a great comfortable room with windows on Vladimir Avenue, the very center of St Petersbourg. The room has everything you need - bathrobes, slippers, minibar, and all sorts of little things like a spoon for shoes and a sewing set that give a cosy atmoshere. The bed was very confortable, I slept like a log! Friendly staff, you feel every minute sincere care, which was very nice! Loved breakfast in the restaurant at the hotel - I took eggs Benedict, just amazing, I wanted to eat them with the plate! Also a very tasty cappuccino prepared with coconut milk. Delightfull, I recommend it to everyone!
Travelled to St. Petersburg on 20-26 January, stayed in Aston Hotel. Very glad that chose that hotel. Pros: - In center (could be con also for someone who likes silence); -Very friendly personeel starting from reception till cleaning; -Rooms are very clean, everyday you get cleaning done, all bathroom consumables are being changed, a bottle of water is added; -You get ironing kit in your room; -During my stay I've received 2 compliments from chef; -Breakfast is very good. Con: - if you stay in prospect side rooms, noice from street might be a problem. Other than that, I've enjoyed my stay, would stay there for my next visit as well.
We were two couples together. We each had a rear, courtyard, room, which was beautifully quiet. I understand that the rooms over the main road are more noisy. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were very good, with a wide range of dishes to choose between. The location is great. Two minutes in one direction and one is on the Nevsky Prospekt. A few minutes in the other direction and one is at a metro station which is on two different lines. The restaurant offers good evening meals.
It was a great stay, rooms were well equipped, spotless, tall ceilings and staff were friendly, speaking good English. The rooms were ok size for a historical building in the city centre. Location is excellent too. Breakfast was really nice - try the meat pancake rolls! Though sometimes some things ran out but just asked and they were replaced. Just a few small things did bring it down slightly - the rooms were exceptionally hot and the bathroom had the towel heater on, it was around 20-22C outside but 25C inside! It was noisy if the window was open, even facing the back of the building, but no noise if closed. The entrance hall always seemed blocked with chairs so a little difficult to manoeuvre with suitcases and people coming in/out. However these are fairly minor overall. I do recommend to stay and I would stay again!…
Excellent location between 2 metro stations. Clean hotel. Once they forgot to do our room but was settled when everyday they leave us 2 chocolate truffles in the evening. Every day you will be given 2 bottles of water of 500ml. English Speaking staff and breakfast was very good but was the same every day. That is why I need to give hotel 4.5 rating. 24 Hour reception.
