“Excellent location - close to Nevsky Prospekt”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This 3 star hotel certainly is in a perfect location, on a quiet side street a 2 minute walk from the main street Nevsky Prospekt. Also, it's just a 5 minute walk from the Moscow train station, the Stockmann department store and the huge new Galleria shopping mall. The metro station is right next door, and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from close to the hotel.

The hotel itself is a standard 3 star hotel with clean rooms and comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet has all the basic stuff, even though it is recommended that one has breakfast around 8 am before most guests appear and there's nothing left... In the restaurant they serve a 5 o'clock tea with an assortment of biscuits and cakes free of charge every day.

The service is not the greatest in the restaurant, as there are no smiles and the service is slow. Behind the front desk, the service varies. We got excellent service from the manager. Unfortunately, one of the receptionists was really rude to all of us on several occasions. Thankfully, the other receptionist the next day really made up for by it helping us with several different things during the day.

Also, the restaurant next door called Café Cat (Ket) with Georgian cuisine should not be missed. Make sure to book a table though in advance.

Excellent value for money, clean, modern, all rooms air-conditioned and buffet breakfast is included. Good location on a side street, just one block off the Nevsky and the Mayakovskaya metro station. Within walking distance from Vladimirsky, Stockmann's and Galeria shopping malls. Complaints: Wifi only works at the reception, restaurant staff only speak Russian. There is construction work across the street, which can cause some disturbance during 2012.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are larger and fitted with refrigerators.

Nice hotel, well renovated, good location, only two minutes from the Nefski Prospekt. Room, superior, was big enough, mini bar, good bed and nice breakfast, friendly staff who spoke some English and freelance wifi in the lobby area, we can recommend this place!

Visited this hotel with a group of friends for three nights. It is a small hotel, (49 rooms) but very The Cronwell Inn Hotel is centrally located about 3 mins from the Metro Station and the same to Nevski Prospect which is the main shopping street in the city. Rooms are very clean but slightly small with 3ft. twin beds which are a bit narrow but very comfortable. Ther is flatscreen tv with CNN and the rooms have aircon. Staff are very friendly and there is free afternoon tea and cakes at 5pm each day. The restaurant has a nice menu, but as in a lot of small hotels, try to go outside of busy times as the staff can be overwhelmed by large groups. Nice buffet breakfast. Wi-Fi in the lobby. Staff speak english too. Excellent base for a visit to this very 'buzzy' city, which is cosmopolitian and almost Europaen compared to Moscow. Reminded me of say Berlin or Vienna. A bit more expensive tan Dublin, more like London prices.

Clean and new feeling to this hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A good breakfast buffet comes with the room. My room was very quiet and the beds were very comfortable. I was pleased to see their brochure about green policies at the hotel. I had not seen this anywhere else in Russia. This hotel is a short walk and easy to find from the train station if you are coming from Moscow. It is just one block of Nevsky Propsect which makes for a great location too. They have wifi only near the lobby but the signal wasn't the strongest. I didn't have a computer along so the internet connection in the room was not helpful for me.

This hotel was one of my best during my all trip trough Russia...is has a perfect location close to Nevsky Pr. (just 5 min.) and 15 min walking fro the railway Station -where your arrive if you took a train to St. petersburg). Is a very new and modern hotel, rooms were ok, bathroom also and very clean. The breakfast was ok. I was very surprised about the "green political" that they have, that I read in one of the paper on the room...congratulations for that!!!! is my first time that i saw something like that in a russian hotel. Hope that all is true...
The people was really HELPFUL a lot, they speak english very well and very nice too....and a beautiful blonde girl at the front desk( I will have to come back yes o yes!!!!)
Congratulations to the owners, you have done a really good work in your hotel, and you can know that trough the people that works there.

St Petersburg is one of those places that resides in the imagination as exotic, mythological and far far away. It is all of those things but with the reality of Russia today to bring you quickly back to earth: expensive, brash, edgy and with lots of bling. The Cronwell doesn't do either. Romantic it's not, fit for an oligarch certainly not. It is a perfectly functional budget hotel with bland decor, clean rooms and friendly staff. Much larger then the street entrance would suggest, the place is a warren of corridors and levels. The breakfast will not win any prizes but then you might like to spend the morning in bed, as is the custom in St Petes, what with the White Nights and all. If you want a well priced and hassle free bed in the centre of town, this is probably it.

Room Tip: Book a room on the upper floors because there is a function room on the ground floor that cna be a b...
