We chose this hotel based on its central location and wasn’t disappointed. All the major sites of St Petersburg are in walking distance of the hotel, it has a metro stop round the corner as well. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, a few nice little touches on arrival, your countries flag in the room next to the Russian one, a letter and magnet to welcome you. The room has bed, wardrobe, TV, fridge, hairdryer and safe. Bathroom has clean towels every day and a good shower. Well priced with breakfast included

This was a last minute booking due to unexpected changes in my travel schedule. I chose it based on a guidebook recommendation, price and location. I stayed there for 4 nights and as a single female traveler, I felt entirely at ease. They were extremely prompt with answering questions and replying to email. They were extremely helpful with ordering taxis. There was coffee, tea, and cookies always available. The staff had a variety of English language skills, but they were always willing to find someone to help with my questions. I loved the location as it was near several attractions and easy to find because of that. It is a 5 minute walk from St. Isaac's to the west and maybe a 10 minute walk to the north end of Nevsky Prospekt. There is a small grocery store across the street. The room itself was quite large, especially compared to the ones in Scandinavia. The room is quiet with the windows closed. It is in the city, so the noise when the windows are open are normal. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights during our 12 day trip to Norway, Finland and Russia. We chose this hotel after reading about it in a Rick Steves guide. We came by train (3.5 hours) from Helsinki,Finland which was a very easy, comfortable way to travel (all passport paperwork handled from the comfort of your seat) and I'd highly recommend it. The only problem with coming by train and not by boat is that we needed a Visa. In order to get a Visa, you need an invitation from someone in Russia. I contacted the hotel beforehand and they processed our Visa invitations for the cost of about $15 USD per person. We then used Passport Visa Express to process the Visas. From the suggestion of Rick Steves, we also had the hotel provided a car service to pick us up at the train station. The driver was very nice, helped us with our bags, and accompanied us up the elevator dropping us off on the 4th floor in the hotel lobby. The hotel staff spoke English and was very helpful. We arrived at about 11 am - before the stated check in time - but we were shown to our room right away. We were able to eat lunch at a fast food place called Teremok which was a block away. Good homemade stuffed crepes - ask for the English menu. We had set up a private tour with Tailored Tours of St. Petersburg and spent 2 days with them - one day in the local area and one day in Pushkin and Peterhof. The hotel was no frills but clean and comfortable. They had a nice welcome booklet, addressed to us, with info about the hotel and area. I booked the standard room which did not include amenities and there was no shampoo in the room but we just bought a bottle for a dollar at a drug store around the corner. Next time I'd just bring my own. There weren't a ton of different choices at breakfast but it was good. The hotel was in an awesome location with many tourist sites, mini supermarket, drug store, and restaurants nearby. We enjoyed eating dinner at the Clean Plate Society nearby. More people then we expected spoke English so we were Ok navigating the city alone on our last day in St. Petersburg. The hotel held our bags after we checked out. We took the metro and it was very clean and decorative. Prices on everything were much less expensive then in Norway and Finland. For our last day we visited the Faberge Museum with the English audio guide. To get back to the train station, we had the hotel call us a taxi. The cost was much less then the car pick up service. We were very comfortable and happy with our stay at this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Very clean room, great location close to everything, helpful staff that can order taxi and other services, free WiFi, air-condition worked on 30 degree hot summer day, breakfast is edible but not great. You need to ask for more toilet paper for your bathroom.

This is the third time I return to St Petersburg with a group of friends. I always chose Herzen for the perfect location which makes very enjoyable the stay. Rooms at the 4th floor are quiet and comfortable. Everything is within a few minutes walk: metro and bus station, St Isaak, The Hermitage, Kunstkamera, The Church of the Spilt Blood. The staff is always ready to help, speaks English and provides all the answers one requires. Breakfast not spectacular but all around one can find supermarkets, restaurants and shops opened 24 hr/day.
