“excellent location, service good”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

This is the place to stay if you want a standard European Style hotel room. Good beds, rooms are quite spacious and the location on Nevsky is excellent. Close to the major transport hubs and tourist attraction.

Upon arrival, the stairwell is disgusting, dirty, carpet thredbare, even the balustrade up the stairs is missing in parts.
Enter on the 3rd floor into Hotel Polikoff, and the reception is fine and staff helpful.
The room was again dirty, the carpet extremely dirty, and the sort of place that makes you itch.
We stayed one night, as it was paid for, and then checked out and went to an International Chain hotel.
I dont recommend this Hotel at all.

Room Tip: dont book this hotel

Lovely little hotel, right off the centre of Nevsky Prospekt. We were worried upon arrival as the front door and staircase seemed a bit 'shady', but once inside the actual hotel it was perfect. Very cosy, great breakfast area, really nice room with genuinely one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. Additionally, it was spotless and the hotel staff were sweet and friendly (hard to come by in Russia!) It seems like it has been renovated recently which is obviously a bonus! Disadvantages? The only one I can see is that there is no elevator up to the hotel which might be a problem if you are elderly or disabled. Otherwise, perfect!

it`s a nice small hotel, as they call it in Russia "private hotel"
------
disadvantages:
* the closest subway station is about 15-20 min walking, although it`s in the very central location, right on the Nevsky Prospect (the main street of the city).
* no elevator (as I remember it`s about 3rd floor)
-------
anyway, staying in such small hotels in Russia (and there are a lot of them in S.P.) is much better than in bigger ones.
the overall quality of hotel service in Russia is quite poor. and in the small hotel you can get much better service.
-------
I recommended Polikoff to my parents and they stay there every time they travel to S.P. which is about 3 times a year:)

When I travel abroad I am trying to stay away from the fancy 5 star hotels. When travelling abroad what I am looking for is location, quality and price withing the modest budget. Hotel Polikoff fits the above mentioned criteria perfectly. Great location in the historical center of St. Pete and rooms that are not facing the noisy street. Free use of internet all day. Close to the sights and theaters and concert halls, 2 minutes from the huge shopping center and plenty of restaurants and coffee shops. The rooms look like an Ikea ad but are new, sparkling clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Another great feature is the buffet breakfast and use of the dining facilities all day long: free tea, coffee, bisquits etc., A great choice!

Stayed 3 nights. The location is very good on Nevsky Prospekt only 5 mins walk from Gostiny dvor metro station. It is however difficult to find with entrance from Karavannaya str. 11. Apartments 24-26 between two shops about 40 meters from the street corner. Only about 15 rooms this place is friendly and efficient. Room was reasonable but lacked air con which could be a problem to some in high summer. Overall we had a good stay and found the hotel offered good value for money overall.
