Nevsky Forum Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2009

This small, boutique hotel offered a peaceful sojourn from bustling Nevsky Prospekt. The room was small by North American standards, but larger than some European hotels we stayed in on our trip and very well decorated and very clean. It is extremely well situated, within walking distance from major historic sites, shops and restaurants. We were able to take the subway to the train station on our departure. The staff were very courteous and friendly. Most spoke good English, though some of the restaurant staff had more difficulty, but they would bring another staff person to help if they didn't understand. I would definitely stay in this hotel again and definitely recommend it. From: Gatineau, Quebec Canada

Rooms are not big, but nevertheless confortable and welcoming, and with spacious spotless bathrooms. Location is simply fantastic, next door to the metro station and walking distance to the city centre. But best of all is its helpful desk: we went through some trouble and they were extremely efficacious, reassuring and worked things out with a big smile!. We'll definately repeat when visiting again St Petersburg.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for one week. This was our first trip to Russia.
The staff at the front desk was extremely helpful and efficient, and very nice too. They gave us all the answers to our questions regarding restaurants, public transportation, tours, etc. They even arranged an excellent guide, speaking perfect English, who took us on a private tour to Peterhof.
The hotel is also very well located.
We intend to repeat the stay at the Nevsky Forum Hotel in our next trip to St. Petesburg. The city is beuatiful and there are so many interesting things to see that seven days were not enough.

Nice, clean, cosy hotel right in the city centre
Parking space was extremely helpful given you are not allowed to leave car on the main street
Rooms are large and spacious, 5m ceilings look truly impressive
Have not even seen the cleaning leady, yet the rooms were always cleaned whenever we were coming back
reception staff helpful and nice
Breakfast menu was slightly poor, yet food was tasty
A bit surprised, that TV was turning off after midnight (i guess) - not ideal for those like me who like watching TV before going to bed

Dear Elenita1986,

on behalf of all the team of the Nevsky Forum Hotel we thank you for your kind words and high appraise of our services. It's great that you tried our parking, we hope this option would be relevant to all travelers with car.
Concerning your notes about TV turn-off after midnight - we will organize the thorough check of this problem. We do not have any policy about turning off the TV-channels at the night , so it must be some technical problem, that we definitely improve. Please, accept our excuse for the possible inconvenience.
Hope to see you at the Nevsky Forum Hotel again.

Best regards,
Fyodor Tarasyuk

I have traveled extensively in the world for business purposes and know that combining economy with comfort is often difficult to find in many countries. I found the staff at the hotel to be very helpful. The breakfast-included with the hotel fee is very much a value. The visa facilitation was fast and professional. I feel also that the web site(s) for the four hotels are very well done and truly helpful. Adding the free skype phone calls is really a sign of a hotel using their imagination. The Nevesky forum is perfectly situated with a local metro stop right next door as well as Moscow train station only two blocks away. I had no problem with noise in the hotel from Nevesky Prospect and the internet access (wifi) in the rooms was never an issue as is the case in so many hotels. I highly recommend this hotel and would like to experience the other three Valka Group hotels in the city if I return to St. Petersburg.

All four of us had a good stay at the hotel. Confortable (small) rooms with all amenities, recently renovated (I guess) but with cheap material ... but here is not the point, since the stay was sufficient and met our expectations (which where not too high).
Friendly service throughout the hotel, great welcome and farewell, at the exception of the Restaurant staff were waitresses are ALL unfriendly and rude at time, and do not understand a word of English ?!
We loved the place, at the exception of breakfast, where the food (buffet) was eventually the poorest on earth.

Perfect location. I would recommend to people who want to avoid industrial atmosphere of big hotels. Due to heavy rain, I was testing the bar and it was ok, both food and service. A bit self tailored feeling all over, but it made it cosy. I would improve the breakfast: should start at least 7.30 and bigger variance of cold cuts and cheese should be available.

Dear mlaTampere,

thank you for your response and opinion. All the team of our hotel do their best to provide high class service and accomplish personal requirements of every guest. Since July 1, we've extended the assortment of our breakfast cold cuts (includ. cheese and sausage). The set breakfasts (on demand) are still available.
You are always welcome to visit Nevsky Forum Hotel during your future trips to St.Petersburg.

There is just one option we'd like to add - the class of our hotel is 4-star, and we hope the service we provide meets all the standards of four-star hotel.

Best regards,
Tarasyuk Fyodor
