Recent guest reviews

Very nice hotel and very affordable! We stayed two nights in the hotel with a group of students. The hotel is huge! Lots of corridors but very clean and the rooms are more than comfortable. The breakfast is delicious and is suitable for any diets. The hotel is located in the city center so very convenient to get to places! I would definitely recommend it!

(Went with my grandma) The hotel is good average hotel on my opinion. According to the pictures and feedback in here (TripAdvisor) I can tell you that the hotel has improved. It had a normal flat screen tv now, not that grey boxy one. Also there was drinking glasses for each person in the room + one in the bathroom for toothpaste and toothbrushes. Other toiletries were just shampoo and body soap. Also soap for hands of course. The staff in the hotel was nice polite and answered to any questions we had. Ordering taxis was super easy and with good prices when we asked the guys from reception to call them for us. I have just couple minuses: 1. I tried to contact to the hotel one week before we arrived FIVE times but no one answered. I wonder why because they clearly understood English? 2. The bathroom was quite small. It wasn't a problem but normally it's much bigger and we were surprised to see how small it is. 3. Soundproofing is a lil bad. The hotel is clearly in favor of groups and at the same time and in the same floor that we stayed was staying a group of teenagers and they made a huge noise sometimes and it was kinda annoying. Floor cleaners were nice and polite! Also the food on breakfast was good and full-filling. We went to the hotel restaurant too with my grandma and the food was super delicious, but the waitresses weren't so nice. They did all the formal things but we didn't get any smiles, any "welcome"'s or anything. Also the restaurant door was closed so it was a bit turn off. Hotel is near to the metro and supermarkets which is great! It's also just couple kilometers away from all the big popular sights so the location is a big plus! And we asked our room to be high and to the street so in the pics u can also see what kinda view we got with that.

First of all I want to say that we were part of a group so this hotel wasn't somehow our choice. Dostoyevskiy is rated (In theory) 4 stars but III would give it only 2+. The room was small, not very nice furniture or decoration, there were no tea or coffee facilities, no water (as it would be on a normal standard 4 star hotel).It seems to us that the room need a refurbishment. Some rooms are internal (not a very nice view). The breakfast offered a limited choice and rather poor quality. We didn't enjoy it at all and every day struggled what to choose. This is definitely not the place I would stay again, except its position.

Very good hotel. Not to be compared with W European hotels. They have their own style. Reception was good and typical Russian.Interior might be a bit outdated but that is just the way the hotel is. Everything is clean and the size of a regular room is very good. Same goes for the bathroom. Not big but clean. Housekeeping is doing a good job.The breakfast buffet is very good. Enough to make a choice to eithe have W European breakfast or Russian breakfast. There was always plenty of food.Dinner at the bar is very affordable and can be recommended.As it was my birthday while we were there we had a big bowl of fresh fruit delivered in our room and the opportunity to get a bottle of sparkling wine. If you step out of the front door of the hotel and turn left you walk up to the first intersection you are on Nevsky Prospekt.If you turn right you have Metro station around the corner or accross the street. Depending which line you want to use red or orange.The hotel is attached to a mall. You don`t even have to go outside to get into the mall.

The hotel is next to metro station and shopping center which 24 hrs supermarket on basement floor. The room is a bit old but spacious. I really like the bed, It's so soft and I had deeply sleep everynight during my stayed. The staffs are friendly and English spoken. They has sending postcard service. The breakfast is okay. Ice and water machine in every corner of each floor.

This hotel was easy to find as it has metro station just next to it. We traveled with large group and check in was smooth. The room I got was larger than most hotel rooms and it got nice clean bathroom with shower. The room seemed a bit old and it could use some new curtains and bed covers to feel more modern. The view from room was to inside the building where was shopping center. The room also had air condition but it did not cool the room. I think it made it more hot so prepare for warm rooms. Breakfast room has enough space and the variety of the food was ok. There were everything that you would expect hotel to have. The hotel bar was nice as it it on the top floor. There was nice views and we could enjoy fireworks at one night. I would recommend this hotel for budget travelers. It is very reasonable priced and has very good location. The metro station next to the hotel is perfect to explore the nice city.

Great hotel. Quite large. Connected to a shopping mall. Good food. Starbucks next door. Nice rooms. Friendly staff. English spoken. On the main street (Vladimirsky prospect). Convenient to most tourist attractions.

This hotel was perfect for our family trip with my parents. There's a great wiev from the top floor to have drinks or dinner. Metro is do close and just behind the hotel is a street full of cool hipster cafès and bars. Also great lunch plase -local style. The hotel was nice. Clean rooms and ok breakfast. Staff spoke english and was helpful. The Faberge museum is really close and also nice dinner places!

I stayed for 6 nights - room a little old fashioned, however made up with the cleanliness, good service and great location - also a large central shopping mall in the hotel - on the main roads and close to the farmers market

Booked by ONE TRAVELLER travel company. Beds hard, utilitarian room with little shelf space in the bathroom. One Traveller really failed with this budget booking. Radisson just up the road would have been a better choice.
