I was at Grand Hotel Emerald at the end of July 2022, I was there only for one night. The room was spacious and clean so was the bathroom, the bed was very nice and comfortable. The food from the restaurant was nice. The staff members were super nice and friendly.

felt like I was living in a fairy tale the whole time I was here. The staff took great care of me, and never let me feel like I was traveling alone. They made sure the price I paid for taxis wasn't too high; they told me where everything was; they treated me like family. Accommodations were absolutely luxurious compared to what the same money would buy in Europe or the US. Breakfast was good and reminded me of some especially tasty things that my mother made when I was a little girl growing up in Leningrad. Room service was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and the view from the balcony was beautiful, especially the sunsets and the churches glimmering in the distance. The restaurant was great, but not crowded at all. I also ate at the Grande Belmont, and this compared favorably. I plan to stay here again next summer. You get much more here than at one of the bigger name hotels. Also, the location is walking distance to city center, but far enough that it's not noisy or filled with tourists. My favorite part -- I could rent the pool all to myself.More

It´s been my 3rd time in this hotel . The hotel itself it´s good with an excellent breakfast , good restaurant and attentive staff . But be aware of having a drink at the bar , it is impossible to have a drink and relax without being disturbed by any of the " ladies " that walk around. I told the waiters last visit and received a smile, but this third visit has been too much. In all three nights i couldn't have a relaxed drink at the bar. A shame !!! From now on will choose another Hotel in my business visits to St. Petesb.

We are a couple that is currently staying at the hotel and unfortunately we are very disappointed! We arrived at 4 AM, after a long flight (2 nights ago)got the room and tried to sleep. After one hour we felt there are many mosquitos in the room! We “woke” up at 8AM showed them the mosquito bites and they gave us a different room. Yesterday we got in to bed exhausted and found out that the coldest temperature is 22.5 digress... we couldn’t sleep because it was too hot. Now we are offered another room but we are exhausted of packing our clothes again and haven’t slept in 2 nights. We have another 5 nights here. There is no justification for the high amount we paid! What would you do?

The hotel was perfect for what I wanted while on a business trip. Comfortable bed, large room and a decent bathroom. The decor was slightly dated but was a nice change to the cold "modern" business type hotels found around the world. The breakfast was good and pretty much had everything you could ask for, even champagne !! I'd stay again

It is a well maintained hotel in the city center. There is privacy and quiet in the room Not a big fun of the breakfast choices. Nice service and a great lobby. In general it covered my needs but still I could ask more from a 5 star hotel

It was a business trip to St. Petersburg again. This time I decided to stay at Emerald. The hotel has almost been fully booked. So first night I stayed in Superior Room. Quite big room, nice bathroom, all staff inside. Very comfortable. 2nd and 3rd nights I've spent in bigger and nicer room - Junior Suite. Generous space as at room as at bathroom, Jacuzzi included. Tea / sugar / kettle at all rooms. Rooms have been cleaned on daily basis. Breakfast been provided at Versailles Atrium-café. Selection of food was a very big, even surprising. Thanks to Manager Kirill for kind help. So I would advice to anyone to stay at this hotel, especially for business people.

We spent three nights in this hotel as part of an Insight Vacations tour group. This was not originally our scheduled hotel but we were very happy with the change. We had a very large, beautiful room that was exceptionally clean, as was the entire property. We checked In late in the afternoon, so we had a quick light dinner in the beautiful restaurant. The Russian coleslaw and mushroom soup were excellent as was the chicken salad with crabmeat. The bed was very comfortable with a very nice pillow menu. It was very quiet and we slept well. Breakfast was outstanding, perhaps the best we have ever had in a European hotel. There was an excellent selection of juices and fresh fruit and outstanding omelettes. The cherry juice is fantastic! This is definitely an excellent choice for a hotel in St. Petersburg. If we return to St. Petersburg this will definitely be our hotel of choice!

Having read some of the reviews on here, I was not expecting much from the Grand Hotel Emerald which was booked on my behalf for a conference and 3-night stay. BUT! The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were bell boys and a concierge (some have said there weren't any) - they were great and did not expect tips. Nothing was too much trouble. The best rooms are on the 7th floor with a balcony, facing the city, in my opinion. It feels a little odd if in a room overlooking the internal restaurant with no view and the feeling you don't have much privacy.So I asked to change rooms: I was moved with no problem, extra charge or objection. Had help with luggage within 5 minutes. The hotel sometimes feels eerily empty as another reviewer reported, but this is quite nice as it is quiet, you can eat in privacy and it is simply because it is a big establishment! Breakfast had a good selection of fresh pastries, coffees, teas and hot buffet dishes too. Eggs, pancakes, sausages. Nothing to complain about AT ALL. Some people have said it is also far from the city centre. I would beg to differ: buses stop right outside and take you to anywhere. You can walk to the top of Nevsky Prospect and the Moscow station within 5 minutes. You can walk down to the Hermitage, St Isaacs etc within 30-40 minutes. It is an affluent and quiet area with lots of great restaurants, supermarkets etc within very easy walking distance. Try Diksy supermarket, almost opposite to the right. Also Kroo Cafe for eating, less than 300m to the left. If you are a smoker, ask for a balcony room. I was not charged extra for this. Russia is now very strict on smoking so if you don't have a balcony you need to go outside (which can be a bit yuck in the winter). The pool and spa are not open to hotel guests all the time, but just ask. The rooms are spacious and very well cleaned, lovely bathrooms, great old fashioned feel, good fast WiFi, minibar, safe, good TV with choice of international channels, slippers, bathrobes, good bathroom supplies, laundry etc. I was very pleased with my stay and it's good value for money too. So don't be put off by some reviews.
