“Right Next to the Hermitage”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

This is probably not the best hotel in St. Petersburg in terms of luxury but is located next to Admiralty, the Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedral, and within walking distance to the Church of Spilled Blood and major shopping attractions on Nevskyi Prospect. The hotel is in a historic building with high ceilings and big rooms that are large but not cozy. The TV did not work for us but who has time to watch TV in St. Petersburg? They have cash machine on the 1st level: very convenient! The concierge had information on all kinds of tours available for any group size and any language. We also enjoyed their restaurant with good local food and singing and dancing Gypcies and a bear (a guy dressed like a bear ;-)

Just back from a 5-day trip to St Petersburg! We stayed at the Petro Palace and I really have to give them full marks for everything! Location is absolutely perfect: we walked everywhere! Great sleep quality, the room was spacious and very comfortable. We had complementary water daily, chocolates, and fresh fruit on arrival. The Hotel is spotlessly cleaned and the service is brilliant! Breakfast buffet is really good, caters for all taste. Used the Concierge for transfers from and to the airport: really nice drivers and very good cars. Tried both the Italian restaurant at the top and the bar downstairs for food: really impressed with the quality and price. We used the gym, jacuzzi and swimming pool too: a brilliant way to unwind after miles of walking each day! I'm already dreaming of going back ...

Room Tip: We stayed in 707: really good.

Currently staying in this hotel. Good location only five minutes walk to the Main Street and ten to the Hermitage. The breakfast staff are do efficient the best I have seen in any hotel throughout the world. Good choice of food too at breakfast with an omelette chef too.
Visited the Italian restaurant in the hotel last night. Very nice staff despite them being moaned at by French and German people! If you go don't forget to claim your free glass if champagne for being a hotel guest. Only gave four stars as mirror in room behind bathroom door and no plug socket near it for hair tongs!

An excellent situation between Nevsky Prospekt and St Isaacs, 100 yards from the metro and 500 yards from the Hermitage. Clean, adequate rooms. Restaurant fine, but food rather repetitive. OK for three days, but would get a bit boring if you stayed longer!

I've been to Russia 12 times. This is the only hotel I will stay at in St Petersburg. It is priced very well for a St Pete hotel. Clean, Comfortable, walking distance to everything in the center. All hotel has Air conditioning. It has elevators, Lobby is very nice, halls and stairs are very nice. Mattresses are big and comfortable. Even the indoor pool and spa area are nice, free internet business center. It has the traditional Russian look inside and out as well. I really enjoyed it. If you have been to Russia, then you know why I individually list those features that may sound like the basics for a hotel. You can walk to the Hermitage, St Isaac's Cathedral, Nevsky prospect, Spilled Blood Cathedral, Boat and bus tours. Shopping every where of course.
