    « Fat from 4 star hotel »

    Dirty walls, water covers part of bathroom for the whole day, bad ventilation. Staf forgot to clean the room and at the end ordered a false unofficial taxi to the train station for the double price. Constantly smoking securities near main entrance. Very poor breakfast without any choice, awful coffe.

    « Good hotel, great location, bad service »

    First of all the hotel is located in Nevsky av. and just in front of the hotel you have a metro station, that´s why the location is very good. For us the main problem was that at the reception they don´t speak english, only a little bit. When we arrived they asked for our passports to register and they kept them for 1 hour and they charged us for it (6€)!!! She said that it was mandatory. They didn´t say anything about it until we arrived. The room was huge, with great views, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom was ok. It was a little bit noisy during the night because of the traffic but we could sleep without problem. The Wifi worked very good, only one day there was a problem and we were without it This is not a 4 stars hotel but the location, room and price make it, very recommendable. You have to be careful with the reception because they will try to charge you more.

    « Bit disappointed to be honest »

    I have stayed in a number of Best Western Hotels over the years, although recently have tended to stay in the Best Western Bristol range as they are more modern. If you are staying here make sure you put Cafe du Nord into your smartphone as you may well miss the place as it is not very well labelled on Google, which strangely takes to a hotel also owned by the same people (Oktiabrskaya Hotel). The hotel is well situated across from Moscow Station on Nevsky Prospect. I stayed in July and it was very warm (30 degrees C). As the rooms do not have air conditioning and there is quite a lot of noise from outside, you have to use the fan which is provided in the room. The rooms are a bit tired and bit cramped and the hotel could do with being refurbished. The breakfast is provided in part of the Cafe du Nord and it was quite basic, not a great selection and there is not enough seating for the amount of guests. The tea and coffee facilities in my room were not topped up in my room even after the second night of my stay and when I asked in the evening if I could have more sachets of coffee and milk the member of staff said that I would have to wait until the morning or go to the cafe and purchase a cup of tea or coffee. Bear in mind that the hotels are more expensive in Saint Petersburg than in Moscow. This is an average 3 star hotel and not a 4 star hotel as you may see it advertised.

    « 24hrs in Saint Petersburg »

    We travelled as a group of 7 friends from Moscow to SP by train. The hotel is a 3min walk from the station and is perfectly located. Outstanding service and hospitality from the staff of this hotel made us very welcome for our short stay. Bedrooms were spacious and immaculate and breakfast in the Brasserie was delicious and again the staff were outstanding. This hotel combines the modern international standards of a Best Western Plus hotel with the excellence of traditional hotel keeping and hospitality. You will not be disappointed.

    « Brilliant location and service »

    We recently visited St Petersburg for a couple of days during a holiday to Moscow and traveled there on the bullet train (super efficient by the way!). The hotel is only 1 minute walk from the Railway Station (named Moscow Station as that's where the trains connect to!). As such it's perfect for a short trip like ours. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the hotel has an excellent French style bistro (1834 Du Nord) where we enjoyed various excellent meals (ranging from breakfast to coffee and cakes). The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the overall experience represented very good value for money. We all loved Saint Petersburg and plan to go back - we will certainly return to this hotel.

    « Never-never again, terrible smell, terrible noise, terrible heat »

    During my stay there was no air conditioning. Not yet may be? Not at all, neither central, nor in-room! There was extremely hot summer weather, and they did not bother themselves with installing aircon system. There was terrible smell of old carpet and dust in rooms. SO I had terrible smell and terribly hot temperature in room, what to do? May be to open window? Right...and here we've got terrible noise from Nevskiy prospekt - the most busy avenue of St.Petersburg. 3 "stars": terrible smell, terrible noise, terrible heat. Welcome? Think 10 times before staying.

    « Very good »

    All of them is very minimal Everything is simple and in fact was very organizes Bed was very comfortable and the room was great Double-glazed windows to the street noise was not too Although the hotel was very clean and renovated too old The only downside was that housekeeping did anything very own room and the hotel reception lobby is not and never was the right place

    « Good comfortable stay »

    The rooms were spacious with all the basic needed amenities and the location is the usp..amidst the throbbing marker area still calm..on the famous nevsky prospect road..the hub of shopping and proximity to the main landmarks makes the stay less cumbersome.

    « Customer service not so good »

    Rare for me to write a bad review but this hotel has some room for improvement. Air conditioning wasn't working but we were not told this and only found out in the room. Told to open window but the street was very noisy. Asked to book a normal taxi but was booked a car from the receptionist's friend. That being said, the room was clean and the bed comfortable.

    « Good location, Nice rooms, unacceptable loud street noise »

    Location: perfect. Its exactly on the corner of the street, windows looks to the Moskowskiy station Room: Newly refurbished, nice and comfortable furniture and design. As the rooms watching to the day and night super busy Avenues, the loud level is the worst I have ever felt. The hotel needs to invest to soundproofing as soon as possible! Price: Very reasonable!

    « Lovely big room, perfect position »

    I spent 5 night at Oktyabrskaya Hotel in the Ligovskiy building, my comments are for this and not for the main building. At first it doesn't look like a hotel, it's a beautiful old building facing Vosstaniya square. Once inside you are in a new hotel with modern decoration and facilities, where you can find everything you need. I liked my room a lot, above all because it was incredibly big. I've never seen such a huge room in a hotel of this category! On a side there were two comfortable beds and in front of them a very large space with a sofa, two armchairs, a writing desk, a fridge and a flat tv. The furniture is simple, but it 's new and decorated with lovely warm colours. My room was also clean, warm and full of light, the free wifi connection worked fine. The position is really perfect, even more if you come from/go to Moscow by train, the train station is just in front of it. There you can find also a metro stop. On the other side of the street there are two big shopping centres where you can find a lot of shops, restaurants, cafés, supermarkets. All this for a very cheap price... I couldn't choose a better hotel for my visit to St. Petersburg!

    « Large rooms best price »

    Rooms are really big, well equipped and immaculately clean. Very comfortable beds. Good breakfast served in the French cafe - nice attraction. Wi-if in the room works perfectly. The hotel offers quality you would never expect for such little price! Great!

    « Great breakfast buffet but far from sights »

    I recently stayed here with a tour group. What it lacks in character and charm, it makes up for in big buffet breakfasts and big rooms. However, the cleaning staff cleaned our room quite late in the afternoon while we napped and there is no free filtered water available to guests. There is also no water available for sale on the premises. As for the location, it's pretty far from the main attractions (30-40 minute walk on generally congested sidewalks) but close to the big train station for trains from Moscow as well as a local city train station. Also, we were extremely disappointed in the quality of the unmarked cab that the hotel ordered to take us to the airport. Despite these negatives, it's still a nice hotel. Just make sure you are ok with the location. Helpful hints: - for a quick/cheap meal (i.e. breakfast after the overnight train, check out the cafeteria-style diner around the corner - take the evening river cruise to see the city lit up at night - there's a beverage shop next door that sells cheap bottled water - buy your souvenirs in Moscow. Saint Petersberg has fewer options and they are more expensive

    « Proper location, poor service »

    Pros: - Location is in front of high speed railway station. And just beside to Nevski street. - Wifi works fine. Cons: Heating system is central, and at 30 September, it was off, we were cold at the room. No portable heaters as well. - No free waters, water boilers or tea at rooms. - Hotels board at outside is very tiny, not easy to find the hotel.

    « Huge Hotel »

    This hotel was fine. There was no air conditioning in the room so we had to open the windows while we slept. When I woke up I was covered in mosquito bites. I counted 36 bites that morning. The breakfast was included but was pandemonium. Because the hotel was so enormous - breakfast was VERY busy. Seats were hard to find and the tables stayed dirty for a long while. This hotel was located very near Nevsky Prospect so was close to the metro and bus station.
