“Best hotel in vyborg.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and we liked very much the hotel. The room was lovely and really big, almost 30 m2. The service was good and flexible, the English language did pretty well. Breakfast was a basic level, what is usually the hotels. The hotel is located right in the middle of everything.

The Victoria is a nice hotel, everything clean and tidy and the service courteous. Our room was on the corner adjacent to that glass tube housing the elevators and was much larger than that of friends who travelled with us. The elevators made no noise at all and did not have a negative impact on our sleep. we had a bedroom and a separate lounge/TV room with nice views (3rd floor) and the bathroom was enormous. we met with friends in the hotel bar and had a good hour there before moving onto a riverside bar over the road for a few more lively hours drinking and enjoying the good atmosphere of a summer's night in June. The restaurant on the 7th floor had was clean and pleasant but lacked any atmosphere, the food wasn't particularly good but it was a prebooked menu for our group so I cannot comment on the a la carte. I would definitely stay here again as I enjoyed my time here

Room Tip: There is an indoor market across the square in front of the hotel which is good for souveniers

We stayed one night in a suite, 3 persons.
The roomsand hotel were clean and everything was ok. However, there was nothing really special about this hotel. However, if you plan a trip vyBorg (Viipuri), Victoria is a good choice.
Breakfast was a dissapointment, some items were run out and we had difficulties in finding food we are used to eat for breakfast.
The view from roof top bar is nice, but it lacked shades.
I slept in an extra bed which was not comfortable.

A modern hotel (after soviet era) near at the round tower and market hall at Salakkalahti -bay. Short walk from railway station. Rooms are clean and have a basic equipment (tv, fridge, hair dryer etc.), there were also bath in the room. Thre were little noise by night, but not bad. The breakfast was buffet style and ok quality. The hotel is located near Vyborg castle and Eremitage Vyborg. A few minutes walk you can find lots of old finnish era buildings (when you see those and later soviet style buldings, see the diffrence). An easy way to see Vyborg is take bustour or ferry (and see Saimaa canal) from Finland with group visa (visa cost is about 65e/ person), these trips usually includes hotels etc (roundtrips from Finlad with visa starts about 160e).

Room Tip: Rooms facing inner yard are quieter, but scenes to square/ Salakkalahti-bay are better.

Stayed there for two nights. Room and bathroom were both clean and well presented. Cleaners did a good job of making the room look nice, despite me dropping my gear all over the floor! I got a better than normal room rate through a group corporate booking, so that was good.

The hotel compares with an Ibis or a Premier Inn in western Europe. It is similar to the Sokos at Tikkurila in Finland. The Restaurant is rather expensive, and the breakfast service is mediocre. I also hate the fact that the cafe / bar is not non-smoking.

All in all, a perfectly reasonable stay for the price paid. Would I stay there again? Probably yes. Would I try somewhere else if I heard there was somewhere better for less / similar money? Probably also yes.

Reception staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke excellent English, though bar staff spoke little or none, and were rather surly.

Room Tip: I had a room at the back on the 5th floor, and it was lovely and quiet.

I was rather disappointed in my stay at the Victoria. If this is the best hotel in Vyborg, I can only imagine what the others are like...I cannot find much to recommend this hotel. First of all, the rooms are noisy (there is road construction work just outside the window and the street is very busy also at night) and the food is no good. Breakfast was a huge disappointment. Bread rolls tasted like paper and coffee was bad. The other items did not look nice either. Made the mistake of calling in for lunch at the hotel restaurant, but the food was really awful. Pasta was boiled in butter and the portion was extremely small (well, maybe it was a good thing as my taste buds were suffering...) My travel companions got also rather strange dishes like watery eggs and left over sausages from breakfast. The tomato soup was eadable, I heard. The prices are very high compared to local restaurants. So it is well worth to eat in the restaurants behind the round tower in the old town. The best bet is the Soba restaurant/cafe which has a wide range of excellent dishes.

The rooms were very small and the beds extremely narrow (was afraid of falling down at night).
The tv has only 2 English speaking channels (RT and Bloomberg).

The saunas are supposedly open for 24 hours...but you need to book. The door remained close. Decided to explore the city instead. The rooftop restaurant was empty and unwelcoming. The staff in the restaurant downstairs did not even greet guests in the morning. The staff does not really speak English, you are better off understanding a few words in Russian or Finnish.

Well, the only good thing about the hotel is the location: it has the best location as it is right at the central square next to the market hall and round tower and the Lenina street is just around the corner. I am looking forward to a nice hotel being built in Vyborg. How about a nice boutique hotel in the old town (where the houses are still in ruins after the WWII)....I am sure there would be a market for that kind of experience in Vyborg. Now the state of the hotels is just unbelieveable bad in the city. Would not stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Do not take a room on the streetside, the garage side is a better choice if you want to sleep;)
