The exterior of the building does not provide any indication of the sumptuous interior that you'll find inside. While many hotels are going with sleek, minimalist design, the Happy Pushkin has gone in the opposite direction. The use of velvet upholstery, crystal chandeliers, flocked wallpaper and an abundance of red paint recalls an era that is echoed on the streets of St. Petersburg.

The room reflected the aforementioned decor but the bathroom was very modern and sleek. Talk about contrasts. The bathroom had a deep bathtub. Typical bathroom toiletries were provided (shower cap, shampoo and conditioner, etc.) as were bath robes. They also provide a clothesline in the tub area for those who want to dry their handwashed items.

Breakfast buffet was very good. Bliny, sausages, hard boiled eggs, cheese, fruit, etc.

My only gripe was with the location of my room. As mentioned by another reviewer, there is a creepy hallway that is located on the 4th floor. It is painted in red but is pitch black when the hallway lights are not turned on. There is no switch to turn on the hallway light but you have to walk about halfway down the hall before the sensor kicks the light on. That sensor should be at the start of the hallway to light the guest's way. In the US, no insurance company would allow that hallway to be that dark for fear of a guest tripping in the dark. All of the other hallways were brightly lit. Not sure why they went cheap with that hallway. Very strange.

A lovely little hotel, the guys on the front desk were particularly helpful and friendly and spoke very good English.
My room was spacious, clean and tidy with a well stock mini bar and good Wi-Fi connection. The hotel seemed to be traditionally furnished but with all the mod cons. The only downside is the walls are very thin and you can hear people in the corridor and adjoining rooms.
Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice, eggs and bacon were freshly cooked to order. They also had a good lunch/evening menu.
Location wise the hotel is one street away from the river and a short walk to the bridge connecting Vasileostrovskiy Island. The Mariinsky Theatre, Hermitage Museum and Nevsky Prospekt are all within walking distance.
All in all my stay here was made better by the lovely attentive staff that work there.

We just arrived and had requested early check-in. I was nervous when arriving at 9am but they were very accommodating. Alexander at reception is probably one of the nicest guys I have had the pleasure of dealing with in over 100 hotels I have stayed in. he quickly changed my room to a double with smoking and because it was not prepared yet he let me go to breakfast. what a great way to start my new year vacation!! Lets hope it continues....
Don't let the negative reviews put you off trying this. it's not a Novotel but instead very beautiful and traditional with all modern services available.

I stayed here during July 2012 on a week long city break and may I start by congratulating the hotel staff, not only were they friendly and competent but also spoke very good English and were also keen to share with me their knowledge of their city.
The room was a decent size with a large double bed, the room had air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, tv, mini bar and a good wi-fi connection.
I got a good and large quality breakfast every morning which set me up for the day ahead.
Overall a very good hotel, would stay there again and recommend to a friend.

Mkay, I'm not even that big on leaving reviews - I only do it if the experience was really bad or really good! Well in this case I just have to leave one because I want staff to know that we loved the hotel and had absolutely amazing time there. We stayed there only for a few days - but I wanted to have something special for our anniversary so I made sure I specified that to the hotel staff and we were greeted with a lovely welcome gift :) So we had just a standard double, but it was really nice - it had the same feel and decor as the rest of the hotel BUT had all the modern fixtures - A/C, TV, great bathroom, wi-fi etc Breakfast was surprisingly lavish and yummy - my hubby was mighty pleased with that :) Very friendly and competent staff, very helpful and patient - we got great tourist tips and directions. Overall a very positive experience - totally recommended to those who like unique and interesting hotels!
