We had a marvelous stay at the tradition hotel. A very good spot near all the beautifull attractions in St Petersburg. The staff were very helpfull even before our trip to get an invitation. The rooms were good. Even though we were at the streetside there was no noice. Only small thing, litterary, was the breakfast room. It was a little small but the breakfast was good. All in all a perfect place to stay.

Dear Andy H,

Thank you for being our guest. It's great to know that a room with a streetview did not disturb your sleep. We only can confirm that our breakfast room can offer 12 seats at one time. But probably next year a small additional space will be added to our lovely breakfast room, so it'll be more tables to enjoy the meals.

Kind regards,
Anton Vasiliev
General Manager

St. Petersburg is na expensive city, Tradition Hotel , is a fairly good small hotel, located in a strategic spot. near underground station and major attractions. Across the Neva River, just in front Peter and Pauls Fortress.
The front desk staff were very nice and helpful, at the day of our departure , very early in the morning they arranged a bag of sandwichs and fruits.
15 minutes walk to Hermitage Museum. a nice stroll across the bridge . There are some restaurant around and also a pizzeria.
There´s a deli were you can buy snacks, softdrinks and some spirits just 200m crossing the road in front.

I spent two night at Tradition Hotel in August 2013, and was very pleased with my stay.

The location is great, especially if you consider the reasonable price (I paid around EUR 75 – a real bargain in St.Petersburg). It will take you about 10 minutes to walk to the metro station “Sportivnaya”, 5 minutes to Peter and Paul Fortress, 10-15 minutes to the Winter Palace and 20 minutes to The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood.

I had a single room, and appreciated the narrow bed– the rest of the room got more spacious and open. The bed was comfortable with big pillows, the air-condition was super effective (it cooled down the room in a couple of minutes) and I heard very little from the street. The room was well maintained, seemed “new” (with an old style though) and clean. The receptionists were all helpful and spoke well English. They also helped me with Visa to Russia, and answered questions over email before arrival. Extra plus for that! The only thing that put a downer to my stay was the Internet connection – or the lack of it. I could barely check my e-mail and Facebook.

A taxi from the airport to the hotel costs about RUB 1000, and I did not even consider it, as I am used to travelling alone and on budget. Unfortunately the alternative turned out to be a bit more complicated than expected. But if you, like me, are determine to save some bucks and think that it cannot possibly be that difficult, here is the way:

1. When you leave the airport, walk 50 meter to your left and you will find the bus stop for #13. The ticket cost RUB 25 in August 2013. Depart at “Moskovskaya” (after about 30 minutes), where you will spot the entrance to the metro right away
2. Buy a “ticket” (a token here) for RUB 28 (two if you are carrying luggage). Take Line 2 to “Sadovaya” and change to Line 4. Depart at “Sportivnaya”
3. When you get up from the metro, walk alongside the park (away from the stadium).

This is the easiest way to ne sure you are walking in the right direction. Follow the road and you will easily find the hotel near the waterfront. It should not take more than 12 minutes to walk with suitcases

There was plenty of long and steep stairs on the old metro stations, so get ready for some serious workout with heavy luggage. English is rarely spoken… And no, Russian is not very easy to read or understand. But if you are up for the challenge… =)

The breakfast costs RUB 800, and was in my opinion not even worth trying. I took the metro to “Okay” (station “Electrosila”, line 2), a big supermarket in St.Petersburg, and bought food for three days. It cost me around RUB 800. Money saved, is money earned!

If you want the cheapest souvenirs, buy them at the stands inside Paul and Peter Fortress.

Dear TheSuitcase,

Thank you for your very informative review. It's great that independent travellers can read now so much usefull information as we always support individual and independent travellers. All our staff members di the same while being on vacation. A separate breakfast in our hotel is really 800 Rub per person and it's a pity truth about serving a breakfast with a large choice in such a small hotel. But we do a lot to serve it good and trying to keep the quality of products high enough to satisfy our guests.
Anyway we wish you great travel experiences in the future!

Kinds ragards,

It's an small Hotel in a good condition. Without elevator. We had good luck with the room because was silent and quiet.
Rooms with street view must be noisy! We had a problem with air conditioning and they give us two presents for the inconvenience. It could be a good choice!

Dear se04394,

Thank you for your fair review. We really had one airconditioner broken during your stay but due to 100% occupancy were unable to change the room. A week later the problem was solved and since that time everything works fine. Thank you once again for being our guest.

We stayed here for 17 days as independent travellers. This hotel offers fabulous value in a city that is very expensive. The front desk staff were all superb and gave us great support during our stay with recommendations and booking restaurants. We booked early in fact 6 months before our visit and got a very favourable rate. The hotel has about 16 rooms so it makes sense to book early. We chose a standard room.It was very quiet and had more than enough space. The air conditioning system was quieter than most and very efficient. The hotel arranged a taxi transfer from the airport and also the return which I would recommend. They issued the visa support letters for us which was quickly done by e mail. For the information of British tourists I would say that Russian visas are a bit of a pain but we used Scots travel visas in London and they were very helpful and ensured that we had ticked all the boxes. We ate out many times and I will mention three particular favourites being the Idiot cafe which is near to the Marinsky theatre and cafe Levin which had superb service with good English and Cafe Mozart which is an easy 20 minute walk from the hotel. The metro at Sportynaya is only a 15 minute walk and the system is really easy to use. Buy tokens for 28 roubles just over 50 pence and you can make a single journey anywhere on the system and it is a very efficient travel system. Don't miss the Hermitage museum with its 3 million exhibits. Don't go as part of a tour. Go on your own and give it two days. You can book online before you go and a two consecutive day option is available at a reduced rate. Just present your E voucher at the seperate booth and you will avoid queuing completely. Peterhof is also a must. Go out on the first hydrofoil of the day at about half ten and give yourself at least 5 hours on arrival as the Palace and gardens are magnificent. By careful planning you too can have the holiday of a lifetime but importantly book at the Tradition Hotel. They will look after you as if you were royalty.
