“Nice place in St.Petersburg”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

The hotel is very nice and comfortable. Rooms are quite spacious and clean. It was obvious for us that the staff doing their best to satisfy guests. The Metro station is only 5 minutes away which was a good point for us too. We really made a good choice staying in this wonderful hotel.

The front-desk staff spoke good English and were really helpful. The rooms were nice and the food in the restaurant OK. That turned into a fairly sociable bar later in the evening. There is free internet, but you have to stand up and use it in the lobby.

The problem is the location - it's 15-20 minutes walk to the nearest metro station, which is on a line where you need to change to get to any station around the main sights. So basically walking the hour or so to where you're going may be just as quick.

I recently completed my first trip to Russia. I was travelling on business to a small town but at the end of the trip I took an extra couple days to visit St. Petersburg by myself. A colleague who has lived in Russia for several years now recommended the AlexanderPlatz to me.

It's a small hotel and it feels great. The location is not really walking distance to the Hermitage, but there is a bus route that passes within a block that will take you there in about 15 min for 18 rubles. The hotel faces a quiet little street. The room was reasonably sized with twin beds (for a single room) and a table with chairs. There was also a small balcony. The bathroom was nice with heated floors and bathrobes provided. I understand there is a private sauna with pool on the premesis that you can rent for an hour's relaxation. The room was clean though it was apparently a smoking room so there was a hint of smoke in it. The bedding was very nice.

For price of a single room (for this off-season was less than $100 CDN) was less than I expected to pay for a night in St. Petersburg and felt like I found a real gem. Between the inexpensive food, the inexpensive public transportation and travelling there inexpensively by train I have felt like visiting St. Petersburg has been a wonderful (and very affordable) experience.

PS: the taxi drivers outside the train station will tell you the fare to the hotel is 30 euros - 1300 rubles. The actual fare should be more like 300 (tree stow!!) or 400. Feel free to tell one to take a hike and go talk to another.
