Good business hotel with reasonable price. Close to railway station. Nice breakfast and good service. Rooms are clean and quiet. Business lunch also available. Hotel is not in center but by taxi it takes only 10-15 minutes to go there.
We stayed here on the recommendation of the people we were seeing in town. It was not as far away from attractions as I expected (actually very close to Peter and Paul Fortress), and while it was not fancy, it was very clean. The breakfast did not offer eggs (other than hard boiled), but it was adequate, and the staff were pleasant. The receptionist went out of her way to help us with wi-fi issues and was very welcoming. We didn't use the kitchenette apart from the kettle, but it is a nice feature.
Kronverk is relatively new, well-kept apart-hotel located just 15-20 minutes walk from the Hermitage and St. Isaac's Cathedral. Reception personnel were kind enough to check us in to one of our 2 rooms as early as 10 am. The rooms are quite spacious, and are equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, kitchen wash basin and utensils, and a microwave. The bathroom is equipped with full bath, and there is enough space around it. The breakfast is served in the cozy cafe on the ground floor and consists of a small buffet of boiled eggs, porridge, toasts, etc., with different daily dishes and fruits served by the waiters. In general, it is sufficient enough unless you are on low-carb diet. You can open the windows, and aircon is working well. Wifi is free and strong enough. Beware that the curtains don't really protect you well during the "white nights" season.The hotel lacks facilities such as bar and gym, however it is great for those tourists and business people who just need a clean place to stay, freshen up and have breakfast.…
Employees do no speak English, that's ok. But really not friendly. For example on arrival they asked me multiple signature on Russian documents and was upset when i ask what it was? Sorry i prefer to know what i am signing... At the breakfast : "Do you have orange juice or water?" Is a too high level English vocabulary for Employee. And when an other guest help me to translate the answer was "Niet niet niet". Internet connection so slow, run for only one device (no way to have your PC and cell phone connected) and cut at midnight the last day... So nearly impossible to work from hotel i had to find coffee around. Room light very dark etc etc etc.
Excellent stay very nice hotel, warm and modern rooms, with private bathroom, small kitchenet, with microwave, water bowler for tea, fast Wifi and outstanding staff in reception and breakfast team!!! And great ATM bank machine in entrance very usefull In resume, excellent choice for family travel with kids and also business travel. Hope return one day!
Stayed in this hotel with my family during a 2 day visit to St. Petersburg. Location is excellent - short walk from the subway station and an even shorter walk to the bridge that will take you to the Winter Palace and all the other touristy points of interest. Hotel itself is nice - modern lobby, well-appointed rooms, great customer service. Free breakfast was a nice plus! Price was pretty steep, but I suppose it was reasonable for the location, in the heart of St. Petersburg.
Stayed here one night when our other hotel had no rooms left for our last night in St,. Petersburg. Receptionist was helpful, and we could leave our bags the next day until our evening bus. no charge either to register as I recall. Its to the north of St. petersburg and if sight seeing near to many attractions; we walked everwhere. Not necessary the easiest to find on our return that night, but we walked along the side of the zoo and its only one right turn from there. was also cool trying to get across the bridges before they went up for the night - you can google stories of people being cut off. breakfast was fine, we got then just before it ended though and milk etc seemed a little warm. The price was good, good sized room, bathroom, access to lift by room swipe card so felt secure etc…
