Altburg On Liteiny
Ranked #493 of 982 St. Petersburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've been reading other reviews of Altburg before I've chosen to stay there. There've been a small hesitation before I've booked it. However, now after staying there, I'm very happy I did chose it. It's a lovely place with good honest personnel, fine rooms and modern interiors. There is a small draw back - entrance into the building - the hotel is located in a residential house. But once you enter the hotel itself - you won't have any further hesitations. The building is actually quite interesting in itself. It's one of the historic buildings of St. Petersburg located on the main prospect. Location is very convenient for sightseeing and any transportation. Overall, a very good impression.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the main prospect. This could be a bit noisy for light sleepers (didn't both...

I ended up in Hotel Altburg as practically all other hotels in St. Petersburg were packed due to an economic summit. I got a very small and clean room which was very noisy even with closed windows as it looked onto Liteyny Prospekt (6 or 8 lanes road) and you can hear all noises from the reception as well as the doorbell. The hot water was brownish-yellow I guess from the rust in the hot water facility. The breakfast was really poor you can have yoghurt and conserve muffin, fake cheese, "plastic bread" and the poorest quality sausages. The night staff was polite, the morning staff was patronising. The room for did cost 3200 RBL for a night.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep and don't have earplugs avoid the Liteyny Prospekt side.

This is a small and comfortable hotel which like so many St Petersburg hotels is located in a residential building. The entrance to the building may not be all "marble and gold", but the hotel is perfectly comfortable, quiet and well situated to reach many sights in the city. The staff added positively to the equation, leaving me quite satisfied about my stay at Altburg.

If you are after a pleasant mid-range hotel in St Petersburg, I believe Altburg is a very good option and I, for one, will stay there again.

Dirty, smelly and scary entry. The hotel itself is on the 3rd floor, no lift - we struggled with luggage. Hotel itself is alright. Clean and large room. We were lucky, our room's windows were facing the yard, so it was not very noisy. Some staff are very nice and friendly, made an effort to show us around and tell about local attractions; some are quite grumpy.
The location is quite good. Walking distance to most of the attractions and bridges. We found it a bit pricey for what it is though.

This hotel is located within a block of flats so doesn't have a ' normal ' entrance. Once inside the lobby/stairs area it is quite a shock as it is completely run down and filthy. The hotel is situated quite separately on the second floor and once inside this area it is fine. The staff were lovely and the rooms adequate although a bit cramped. If you can ignore the area externally to the hotel it is acceptable but very basic.

Room Tip: Ask for one not facing the very busy road
