Hotel RA is a small hotel with appealing internet pages but the reality is a bit different. The entrance to the hotel is hardly noticably in the streeet and to get to the reception, you have to go through a typical St. Pete staircase. The reception staff was friendly. For some people in our group they could not provide the kind of rooms they had promised, so they gave a bigger room, but demanded a higher price!
The rooms were clean, and the bathroom had been decorated with modern materials, but the workmanship was awful, even by Russian standards. Hot water was available in the shower on one out of three mornings.
The greatest minus was the lack of breakfast room. The breakfast tray (that you had to book the night before) consisted of a cup of coffee or tea, a youghurt, and a small cake. Also the reception room was very small and there was no lounge; so the only place to meet your friends from other rooms was on the street!
The best thing in this hotel was its location; it is only 10 minute walk from Nevskiy Prospect and - in my opinion - in a very nice area. Very close to Dostoyevsky Museum and Kuznestkiy Rynok, the market.
