“Small and ideally located”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

I had some doubts about staying here after I booked due to some comments about the entrance being in a back alley. I can confirm that my stay here was fine. The entrance to the hotel is in a courtyard that acts as a small car park presumably for the neighbouring Park Inn. The hotel itself is very close the Moscovsky Train Station and asscociated metro stations. There is a massive shopping mall just beyond the train station and the main part of Nevsky Prospekt is also close by. When accessing this hotel, look for the Park Inn, just beyond there is a Nevsky Hotel sign on the street and you go through a small archway next to a security guard's booth and barrier. When you head through to the courtyard, you'll see the door for the Nevsky, ring the buzzer and head up two flights of stairs. The hotel itself is quite small. Rooms are quite basically furnished but comfortable. The main street ouside it slightly noisy with traffic and it may cause some people difficulties with sleeping but I am a light sleeper and didn't have a problem. The windows have double glazing. The hot water in the shower was a bit tempremental though. Breakfast was substantial. There was a 190 roubles charge for visa registration. Main annoyance was the thin walls between the rooms, I heard a couple next door talking into the small hours on two nights.

Very Terrible hotel, no hotel standard at al l!!
1) Hotel is an old building & old room.
2) Hotel entrance is not located on a main street, need to walk to the end of a Park Inn hotel parking / backyard, then you will found an entrance, very dark at night time.

3) A hotel reception is located on 2nd floor, no lift to access, only stairs.
Hotel rooms locate from the 2nd - 4th floor.

4) hotel receptions are quit helpful, able to communicate in English.
However, I found one girl is unable to speak English & not really care the guess.

5) room is not ready :
- a room door is no noise shield,
very noisy from a busy street, reception, next room
- dusty room on the 1st night, not cleaning room
- old hot water pipe = yellow water color & got pipe (iron) slag

6) not worthy price = expensive compared to Park Inn Hotel

Pros:
1) short walk to a train station, a shopping centre (named Garerie)
2) Typical easy continental breakfast

Stayed September 2556, traveled with friends

This is a small hotel that really exceeded out expectations. Room was tidy, strong buffet breakfast and pretty good location - a man has close metro, bus and train stations. The staff was very kind and welcome. I was happy with their excellent English. Very good proportion of price and quality of service. I stayed there in a standard room in April 2013.

My parents came to spend their second honeymoon at Nevsky Express, I personally made the reservation after reading so many good reviews and, it proved to be a good decision. Rooms carried all state of the art equipment and were decorated tastefully. My mom was very much impressed with friendly and polite nature of the staff. Food was good and they had everything, what they needed there. It was all more than my expectation too.

I was very enthousiast about this hotel and came at least 2 time in a year for 3 till 5 days.
Now something has changed: the main entrance at the Nevski Prospekt still exist and the indications also, but you will go nowhere: they sold a big part of the hotel to somebody else.
I needed to ask to another hotel where the entrance could be: it's in a backyard in the ulitsa Goncharnya and you need to use the entrance of the parking of the Park Inn hotel and walk till the end of this parking: it can be dark, many cars are parked everywhere and in the winter it can be difficult to walk due to ice and snow, which is not cleaned. When you find the small door, you need to ring with a code and wait to the answer: you need to use stairs, but the first indication of the hotel is wrong: there is no hotel (!) and you need to go a level higher.
The number of rooms is now very limited and the desk of the reception is in the middle of the corridor: if someone call, or ring on the bell, you will hear it. Before, the reception was in a separate corner and nobody could hear anything of the usual activities... and not usual, like the doorbell!
But the staff is still excellent and the breakfast consistent: it didn't change anytime, but everything what you need is available.
The biggest problem that I have is that nobody (travel agency or hotel) warned me about the change of entrance and the place of the reception in the middle of the corridor where the sleeping rooms are.

A center loaction next to the ParkInn Nevsky and Moskovskaya railway station.The hotel has two entrances,one from the Nevsky street and other from Goncharnaya street,I used only the entrance from Nevsky street.Reception is in the 2nd floor of the building.Service was fine and so was the room.Had a view to Nevsky street and windows are really soundproofing, so had a nice sleep. Breakfast was exactly similar with thew Nevsky Central hotel(porridge,ham,vegetables,yoghurt etc.)The hotel is suitable when you had a trip with train.

Small hotel with an excellent location on one of the main avenues of the city, just two blocks from the main train station where the high speed (Sapsan) trains arrives from Moscow. The hotel reception is on the first floor by stairs (no elevators) The staff was very helpful in answering all our queries and mostly speak fluent English. Thanks to all of them.
The rooms are somewhat small but clean and tidy. Bathroom small but with everything you need. The breakfast buffet is more than acceptable.
The only problem I found is the windows not have double curtains or black out, that is way in certain months of the year (especially in the white nights) the sun ligths the windows very early in the morning.
I recommend this hotel considering the standard of hotels in Russia and very good value for money.

Room Tip: Try to choose an inside room.
