Elegy Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel turned out to be so good that we extended our stay for two more nights. Got a much better room&rate for the extension, perhaps because it was during the week rather than weekend. Anyways, ask the receptionist for the best available rate ;)

I stayed here for two weeks and the value for the dollar was great. The hallway is a little dark, the elevator is a little small, the staff is a little hit and miss on who speaks English and how much, but overall it was a very positive experience and I would stay there again and recommend it without hesitation. The breakfast is as much and more than many American budget hotels. The rooms are small and sparse like you might get in NYC, but clean and comfortable certainly. I don't understand why they can't just hang a light by the entrance door in the hallway - it would enrich the whole experience enormously.

My wife and I were concerned that for such a great price we would be in a lesser hotel, we were so wrong! We had to pleasure of having the best view! We booked a comfort room with a double bed and we stayed in the room with the balcony! We will certainly be staying in this hotel next time we visit St. Petersburg. The hotel staff was very polite and friendly. We felt very safe in this hotel as well. The location couldn't have been better! We were a 60 second walk from Nevsky Prospect, a 10 minute walk from the rail station, 5 minutes to nearest metro station, and 3 minutes from nearest bus stop. We will definitely be back in Saint Petersburg soon, there is so much to see and we wish that we stayed longer than 2 nights and three days! Next time we will stay for at least 5 days 4 nights!

Hotel is located in center of the city and I was pleasantly surprised with all the things hotel had.. Food cleanlinnes and etc.

Five/seven mnts. walk from Metro station, nice central location but difficult to locate because there are no proper signboard at the gate. The hotel is on the 5th floor of the building having a very small elevator. Staff is friendly & English speaking. Breakfast is very basic, but Subway & macdonald's are a stone's throw away.

This is a horrible hotel. As soon as you enter the hotel, you see a dark corridor and an elevator that can barely fit 1 person and 1 suitcase. The whole corridor smelled of urine and smoke. When we checked in they had hot-water problem and they asked us to move to another hotel 10 mins away. So we had to lug our luggage to this new hotel. That hotel was even worse than this one, with no elevator and a horrible vomit/urine smell. You have to carry your luggage to the 5th floor. The room was no better. It smelled so bad and I had to keep the windows open for hours before I could stay in the room. The only good part about this hotel is the location. It is right on Nevsky Prospect. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, DO NO STAY AT THIS HOTEL OR ANY OF THE OTHER ACME PROPERTIES. IT IS NOT WORTH IT. I am actually upset with orbiz for listing such a horrible hotel on their website.

clean hotel, great if your are just there to sleep
