“Great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2010

We travelled to Saint Petersburg with four other friends on motorbikes and arrived at Rush Hour on a friday tea time. Staff were great although we looked wrecked, hot and scruffy having been on the motorbikes for 13 hours when we arrived. They never battered an eyelid. Receptionist immediately confirmed that we would have to share the cost of one parking space underground if we all fitted into one parking space - this we did and three bikes went into one space. Security for the underground car park was top notch which was a relief to us. Hotel was a typical ibis which we have come to expect. Basic, en suite, clean! Nice to have an ironing room and we managed to wash our clothes and get them dry. Breakfast was good. Some Russian food which we tried and some international but very substantial. Hotel very central. Just off the equivalent of our Oxford Street and the Russian people so kind. We did not have to stand many seconds with a map before some non English speaking Russian came to our aid. We were only at this hotel for two nights but would definately go back

Comfortable hotel with modern furniture, excellent conditioning system (it's too important during hot months).
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Free-of-charge Wi-Fi in rooms + computers for guests in lobby (free-of-charge as well).
100% ratio of price/quality.

There are a lot of cafes and restaurants near the hotel.
I with pleasure will recommend this hotel to my friends, relatives and other travelers.

This got into our good books straight away - we arrived without a booking at 3am, and they allowed us to stay for the morning as an early check-in. So we stayed 2.5 nights for the price of 3. Comfortable, clean, spacious room, a little warm, but at least it had air-con. TV with many international channels.

Location is not central, but still fairly convenient and within walking distance of the main train station. Helpful enough staff, although the concierge didn't advise on restrictions on the times when individual travellers can buy tickets at Peterhof and Pushkin, despite us asking specifically in the case of Peterhof.

All-in-all a reasonable place to stay for the price.

+ very comfortable bed, nice shower (although rooms and bathrooms are not that big)
+ well-trained, helpful staff
+ good central location - not the old city, but in a busy area with lots of caffees and shops nearby (but what I definitely don't recommend is "Coffee House" right across the road - give it a miss and take a short walk to Moskovsky train station, where there are better choices to have a breakfast); but remember it takes 5-7 minutes to get to the nearest subway station (which is Ploschad Vosstania or Ligovsky Prospekt)

- expensive breakfast (12 EUR? you can have it for 7-8 EUR in any caffee nearby)
- noisy street (so ask for a room with the courtyard view)

Overall, a typical Ibis hotel - you get exactly what you expect of this hotel chain.
Tip: use their website to get the best price and book in advance. I got a room for 3050 rubles/night (100 USD), while the last minute price was no less than 150 USD.

Newish standard Ibis hotel. Very clean and quiet. The room outlook was fairly bleak but preferable to the busy Livgoskiy Prospect. Breakfast was very good, lots to choose from, the fresh bread sticks and fruit a highlight for me. The metro is a few hundred meters walk and easy and safe to use. Useful facilities include the security boxes downstairs, the souvenir shop and the cafe/bar. The midday checkout was also appreciated as it poured the morning of our evening departure and we could delay our sightseeing until the rain stopped .

Standard IBIS hotel, located in the city centre. Close to the metro station.
Not expensive. Clean and functional rooms, helpfull staff.

Pure and expensive breakfast. Nothing to eat. We regret about spending money.
You can save money and use cafe across the road.

Private paid parking, very busy road (Ligovsky prospect) and uge traffic.

Typical Ibis hotel located near city center on Ligovskiy Prospekt. There are two 24/7 food stores nearby, 24/7 bakery and 24h on weekends Tea Spoon (cheap café chain serving pancakes). It’s about 10 mins by foot to the beginning of Nevsky Prospekt and Ploshchad Vosstaniya (where metro and Moskovskiy Vokzal located). Also it’s about 30 mins by foot to Dvortsovaya Ploshchad.

Hotel looks new and clean like most Ibis hotels, so I’ll just list some pros and cons of this particular one.

Pros:
- good value (comparing to other hotel chains in St. Petersburg);
- friendly staff (kinda rare in Russia);
- convenient location.

Cons:
- no slippers (big fail);
- no kettle;
- no toothbrushes and toothpaste;
- expensive breakfast (we used café and bakery nearby);
- expensive transfer and excursions (we used public transport).

So if you are looking for familiar, simple and cheap hotel, Ibis is your choice.

Thank you very much for your valuable time to write a review to our hotel.
Let me please react on your PROS & CONS.
Good value, friendly staff and convenient location should be the core of our business and I am happy to hear, that we succeeded in your expectations.
Your CONS (specially regarding breakfast and additional services) will be taken into serious consideration, but unfortunately things like kettles, slippers and bathrobes are not ibis standard all around the world.
Thanks again for your time and sending best regards from Saint Petersburg,
